Fortnite Is Good For Gaming, EA Says

Epic's hugely popular battle royale game Fortnite is good for gaming because, with its low barrier to entry--it's free--and its mass appeal, it may help bring more people into gaming overall.

If EA says that, it must be bad for gaming than.

you know EA wants nothing more than to be succesful with microtransactions *loot boxes cough cough*

Even if it was the best thing in gaming, EA would want a piece of the pie, and somehow screw it up to make it into something that leads to being the worst thing in gaming.

The worst thing about fortnite is all the copycats it inspires.

Only time EA thinks something is good is when it's bad

Fortnite is straight out of the MT paradise, its money printing machine why wouldn't EA like it...

The difference btw Fortnite and EA is one game is free vs the other will cost you 60 $ yet they both expect to make the same profits in micro transactions... Fortnite ought to spank EA's greedy butt.

It's the most popular game on the planet, it sells consoles and PCs. More Consoles/PCs means more gamers. More gamers means more money being spent in the industry. Therefore Fortnite is good for the industry.

Also Fortnite has cosmetic only MT's, so I really don't see why the hate?

They just wanna copy it and print money, thats why it's good for them

I might not be into it but I can't hate on a game that's got millions of people playing.

Exactly. It's gotta be doing something right.
I don't know the full extent of the micro transaction's in the game. But from what I understand it's full cosmetic and the pve side of the game (currently).

Can't blame the game for cosmetics being locked. They don't change a thing and they aren't needed to anyone.

Yet "no skins" are frowned upon by the regular MT buying crowd.

Proof that nothing is perfect.
