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?
