The big thing these days is Apex Legends, which is the sudden success story to mirror Fortnite’s overnight success, which itself mirrored the overnight success of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. To a certain extent, at least in my profession, it feels like I’m doing something wrong by not playing these games. But I also already know I wouldn’t actually enjoy these games, for reasons too numerous to list in a piece that is at least theoretically not supposed to top 200 words. These games are not for me, and that’s fine.
Here’s the question: Have you tried one, or are you at least willing to try one out?
Realistically, if there was a pure battle royale-esque title attached to a game I enjoy, I could see myself trying it. Or if it was in a setting I loved enough. The point is that it would not be unthinkable for me to try one, even though I don’t particularly like the genre. So would you try out a battle royale game? Or do elements of the mechanics and/or the culture surrounding them mean that no matter what, you wouldn’t even given them the time for a test playthrough? What would it take to get you to try a battle royale game?
