In case you haven't heard, Fortnite is STILL popular! 5.5 million gamers watched the Fortnite map get blown up on October 13th, and then held their breath as it remained black for two days. When it finally returned, fans let out a sigh of relief as their screens displayed Fortnite Chapter 2. So what's next?
While the battlegrounds are almost unrecognizable with completely new island settings, the overall premise hasn't changed. The main goal of the game is to survive. You are dropped on an island from a Battle Bus, and once you're on the ground, it's every man or woman for themselves. You can strategize by collecting resources, building forts, or making alliances, but at the end of each match, there can only be one winner.
But the age old argument is, "is it too violent for kids to play?". Everyone can determine what they feel is appropriate for their own children, but compared to some of the other video games on the market, it is a relatively fluffy game. Yes, the point is to "eliminate" your competitors, however, there is never any blood or gore depicted in the game. Instead, when you are eliminated, a beam of light essentially vaporizes you up into the clouds. After you've been eliminated, you can continue to log in and play in different matches and rounds. There are also ways to heal and recover, and spend time harvesting materials and building structures.
In conclusion, the game isn't solely based on violence, there is no gore, and it's something that the kids enjoy, so let them have fun! And there are some pretty fun dance moves that have been trending from Fortnite victories, and we a can all enjoy that entertainment! Check out some of the best dances from the original seasons here, you won't be disappointed and might even learn some new moves.
