Ok, so I am not looking to start a war here and let me start by saying that these are two games I have played quite a lot of. However, I find that one keeps me coming back and the other one…. Seems to be making it harder and harder for me to really enjoy.
I started with PUBG. I got caught up in the hype and decided to check it out. I have an Xbox One X and at the time I was looking for exclusive titles to play on it. At first, I hated PUBG and I mean hated it. It took me ages to get the hang of the controls, the game had terrible frame rate (reminder I was using an Xbox One X) and in general, it felt really, really buggy. Still, my friends kept telling me to keep at it and I did and I got better at the game and I got better at ignoring all of the blatant issues that PUBG has.
That is not a knock on PUBG, a game you are having fun with is still a fun game at the end of the day. However weeks went by and I noticed that updates seemed to be few and far between, although it has been recently revealed that an update to the Xbox One version of PUBG is coming and it will make the game a lot smoother and hopefully iron out some of the bugs that I have been encountering so for that I am grateful. However I find that PUBG is a game that is losing me and losing me fast, the amount of times the game has full-on crashed on me is crazy, especially lately.
Now let’s look at Fortnite, I kind of ignored this game, but a random dude I came across while playing PUBG suggested it to me. It was free so I thought what the hell, downloaded it and I have been hooked ever since. For some reason, I play Fortnite on PlayStation 4, not Xbox One, but that does not really matter. From the first game, I found myself intrigued by the art style, the bus and the way the map gets smaller and smaller. Above all else, right from that first match I had, I was having fun in Fortnite.
I find that Fortnite is one of those rare games where it does not matter if you suck or not, it is a fun experience and what’s more, I have never had the game crash on me once, take an age to find a game and in general I honestly cannot think of one issue I have had. It is just a lot of fun each time I play it… and it keeps on getting better. Season 3 has been a blast and now I hear jetpacks are getting added to the mix. It is like Epic is going above and beyond to make the game as fun as possible and I can certainly get behind that.
If I had to pick between the two games, I would pick Fortnite hands down. I have enjoyed PUBG, but Fortnite is just so much more fun and to be honest unless this PUBG Xbox One update is something truly spectacular, I think that they may have lost me!
