The Daily Grind: What would get you to try out a battle royale title?

Stop boring everybody.

Battle royale games are both the newest flash-in-the-pan and one of the oldest genres out there; it’s not exactly a new idea to put a bunch of people in a contained space and tell them to duke it out, and the concept has fueled many a multiplayer deathmatch mode over the years. The genre moves quite a bit beyond that in both the number of players involved and the sheer scope of the ever-shrinking battlefield, but you can definitely draw the comparisons just the same.

Of course, plenty of players have already been enjoying titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, but a lot of other players consider these games to be entirely unpalatable and not even worth giving a shot. So today, much like when it comes to open PvP, the question is what would entice you to play one of these games. What would give you a reason to overcome any innate biases and give a battle royale a shot? Or, if you already have, what pushed you over the edge?

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!
