Epic is in the news regarding the amount of crunch and work that goes into keeping Fortnite going, but we’re going to talk about why this is a losing battle for content.
After months of people asking me to try a battle royale on my daily livestream, I had a chance to try Apex Legends. After about three hours of play, I found myself back in the same position I had before I started — just not getting into Battle Royale design.
After finishing a match somehow on the second place squad, I had a realization about the problem with this form of game design. Despite developers claiming they’re creating the future of multiplayer games, they’re all really just chasing the same example of lackluster game design.
