The Daily Grind: What would it take to get you to try a battle royale game?

Yay, sort of?

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?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
