Mario, Call of Duty, and GTA absolutely helped make gaming mainstream in their own way. Overwatch and Destiny I'm a bit more skeptical of.

None of them had nearly the combination of popularity + cultural penetration as Fortnite. Epic Games lifted the entire medium like no other before it.
The Fortnite crowd IS the Overwatch crowd + COD and Destiny. It's the next thing. That game was huge and everywhere, and I had the same reaction to it as I do to FN.

That's a weird comparison considering those are all different things than a game... revenue per user, lol. They are comparing fractions of pennies for advertising vs microtransations for a game were kids buys friggin dance emoticons and skins, for-crying-out-loud.

Whatever floats your boat, I guess...
So if revenue per user is the thing, GOTY has to be AutoCAD 2019.

I hopped back into this the other day, there is no denying it's a ton of fun and the amount of content Epic adds is ridiculous.

The Epic supported Fortnite subreddit (1 million subscribers) just had their "_______ of the year" results come in.

Here's the Fortnite Play of the Year for 2018...


Yup.

When did they update the graphics in this game? It looks super crisp on my One X and the colors really pop.
