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.

Epic Games has seemingly given up on trying to make the playing field level in Fortnite across all platforms, with the recent discovery version 8.10 no longer matches Switch users with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 cross-play parties.

Prior to this update, solo Switch players were able to play with and against users on rival platforms and now owners of Nintendo's hybrid device will be limited to the mobile pool, fighting to the end for a battle royale victory against iOS and Android users. According to Epic, it'll be a better experience for everyone this way.

While some may disagree with this decision, for a long time now, the Switch iteration has been accused of not being able to keep up with the competition due to performance issues and a 30fps cap. At the start of this year, a bullet glitch was even discovered by Digital Foundry, revealing how higher performing versions of the game (on other platforms) had an advantage in battle - with the gunfire rates in these versions able to deal more damage per second than 30fps versions.

Why not just switch users choose which consoles to play against in game?
