      "Fortnite is just another free multiplayer sandbox and is basically a carbon copy of "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds". The maker's of Fortnite created their game in a effort to beat the previously mentioned title to a console release and have console fans playing their game first. In the overdone genre of battle royale style games Fortnite is just a carbon copy of what has already been done and done well."

      "I have played Fortnite, but on the PC instead of the PS4. It's an awesome game where you create and fortify bases to help keep enemies out and try to protect your base at all costs. I find it an addicting game and absolutely love playing with my buddies to work out strategic plans on winning each game."

    DID YOU KNOW

    Did you know that the first multiplayer video game was invented in 1958? In October 1958, physicist and electrician William Higinbotham, head of the Brookhaven National Laboratory instrumentation program, invented the sports video game Tennis for Two using an oscilloscope with custom aluminum controllers. Higinbotham,  an expert on radar and timing systems for ballistics, was working with an oscilloscope that displays moving lines and curves when he conceived the idea of making a video game from it. Within hours, he decided to make a tennis game because the oscilloscope captures the motion of a ball in the air, and within months, he and his team have finished the whole game, which they named Tennis for Two. The video game looks like a tennis game viewed from the side, and players are required to use the controllers to hit the ball in the right angle to make it go over the net but not go beyond the opponent's line. The game is not as aesthetically accurate as modern video games like Tennis Champion or Play Tennis, but for a game invented in the late 1950s, Tennis for Two awed many of those who attended science exhibitions. It never hit the market and the original machine was disassembled in 1960, but its influence remained, particularly when the game Pong was invented a decade later.

      "It's great for that feeling of commanding your own starship, and that's about it. If you like role playing your characters or building of the story with what's in your head, you can stick it out a bit longer and still enjoy it. It's impressive that this is an MMO that you can play from both your ship and as an individual avatar, but beyond these points, it leaves a lot to be desired and largely relies solely on the premise of being Star Trek. The story is disappointing, convoluted and transparently flaud, and not at all "Trek" for anyone who wants to play around in that universe. It has since become a game that shoots players through the beginning content until they reach the highest level where the only way you can really excel or compete is to pay more money for virtual ships, guns, do-dads, etc. Gamers will know this as "Pay-to-Win."

But for someone like me who only played it in PS4, it was enjoyable, especially how it offers a different feeling from the Star Trek shows, I mean if you wanted to see and feel that you should just have watched the series!"
