Any of you guys play?  I downloaded and played for the first time last night.  I spend more time joining new rounds than actually playing.  Any tips?

Interesting... I guess I was curious on opinions on Fortnite though?  I'm going to assume you don't like it?

I have not played it.

My old coworker, who is a big time gamer geek who watches twitch and is in all the gaming forums, was all about overwatch but I never heard him talk about fortnite which is weird because it seems to be the new rage. I keep hearing about it everywhere, even in the season finally of Silicon Valley last week.

From what you've played so far, is it good?

Like I said... I spent more time going back to the lobby to find a new game than I did playing it because I died so frequently.  Based on what I've seen so far, it seems like you could hide in a corner of the map until close the end and outlast people and I guess that's a strategy but it seems kind of boring.

If this is any indication, I played BF4 last night instead of it.  And I should say that I'm glad I didn't pay for the game?  It also pissed me off that it required their own fucking system instead of Steam/Origin.

I have not, but have played PUBG and it is awesome. I played so much that I had to delete it a couple months back. I think you would like this more than fortnite
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Neither PUBG nor Fortnite are my thing.  I have no interest in lobby gaming and that is what it would be for me. 

I think  you might enjoy Overwatch.  I did for a while, but in that I play many games not just one, I only play it now and again with the group in my chat.

I have spent a ton of time enjoying Far Cry 5 lately.  Wonderful game for the most part.  Next up is the new-ish Prey.  After that is Assassins Creed Origins.  I fill in the holes with Overwatch, Vermintide (a blast), and STO.

I have not and after dealing with Epic's game support WILL NOT.  Someone signed up with my email address and it was a royal pain in the ass to get it deleted.  And they kept spamming me with login attempt emails.

You spend the entire game respawning or in the wait until the game resets lobby.  Yuck.
