Strikingly similar in concept to the point of lawsuit threats and "knock-off" allegations, Fortnite and PUBG have brought a brand-new genre to the mainstream. But which is better?

Claiming one is better than the other is all subjective. Whats factual is that Fortnite already won the mainstream audience and ia making a huge stamp on pop culture right now.

“Claiming one is better than the other is all subjective.”

It’s a fact that Fortnite is a much better game overall.

Skip to 10:30 to see the difference.

it's subjective when saying which one is better. Yea Fortnite runs better but some enjoy PUBG more than Fortnite and vice versa.

Better performance but it’s gunplay and lack of realism leaves much to be desired , also building is a no for me.

Fornite runs better as it should.. I mean have you taken a look at the graphics?

One day the children of N4G will learn what the word 'fact' means.

- fortnite is free and PUBG is $20, that right there is a huge deciding factor because you can just try fortnite while you need to pay first for PUBG
- fortnite is from the game engine's own creator so less bug and runs more smoothly
- also levels, daily goals, challenge.. basically you have more incentive to play fortnite rather than just collect bp to buy crates
- emotes!!

tbh I like PUBG wayy better, it's more realistic and intense, but damn if I can't see overall fortnite is winning in general game design

Only someone delusional would disagree with what you said. I am no fan of fortnite, but no other game comes close to its popularity atm.

But "mainstream audience" is just a category, it's true but it's not the only category. You can just as easily say PUBG won the hardcore audience, or that it won in sales. Remember it's a $30 game that's sold over 26 million on PC and over 5 million on xbox, and still stays toe to toe with Fortnite on Twitch.

I've only had the chance to try these games and haven't invested much time in either, so I'm not really biased. I'm just saying you can spin facts around any way you like.

Do you have the financial information for PUBG Corp and Epic? Do you know what each game brings in? What we do know is that Fortnite appears to be more popular than PUBG.

I'd say that if something sold 26 million, it's probably hit the mainstream.

IamTylerDurden1150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

It was smart to release Fortnite on so many platforms, it would be foolish to omit the massive install base that PlayStation offers. Perhaps PUBG Corp made a mistake?

I know loads of people who play both and opinion is divided

Wotbot150d ago

Forenite is a really good modern arcade game, it’s just not for me. PUBG is way more tense and exciting, it has vehicles which add another dimension.

Both games are great in their own ways

ocelot07150d ago

If it didn't have vehicles most of the server would die in the danger zones.

Gh05t150d ago

I could be wrong but isnt that by design?


Yeah I'm sure PUBG would be having more media hype if it were on ps4 too. PUBG all the way.

There's an audience for both
And that's all that matters ....
