I hate FORTNITE.
I hate it.
I hate Fortnite it because it’s sucking away precious time from almost every tween and teen that I know! It has become such an addiction in our house, even WITH time limits set up. When my sons aren’t playing, they’re still talking about it. It’s that kind of addiction.
For anyone that hasn’t heard of Fortnite (bless you), it’s an action-packed, co-op sandbox survival game developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly. You can play with teammates. It’s designed beautifully. And as one journalist explained, “Once inside the game, it’s easy to be swept up in the travails and adventures of your avatar.”
I’ve heard my sons talk about it so much that I finally waved the white flag this weekend and just said, “SHOW ME HOW TO PLAY. SHOW ME WHY YOU LOVE THIS GAME.”
I wanted to see. I wanted to play. I wanted to be part of this phenomenon. I didn’t want to hate Fortnite. I actually wanted to love it and find something to bond over with my sons.
If you know me, you know I’m not a gamer… I told my kids that they literally need to start from scratch with me. They need to go slow and they need to be patient.
They were NONE of these.
Watch how they “showed” me what to do! I Hate Fortnight.
I decided after 10 minutes this Fortnite was not for me.
Let me repeat myself, I Hate Fortnight.
