Since July of 2017, the video game Fortnite has become an incredibly successful game that has taken the interest of kids and young adults all over the world. However, it’s not as glamorous as it’s made out to be. It’s quite the opposite actually. Parents and siblings of those who have family members who play the game will testify to Fortnite’s negative aspects.  It’s a game that changes the child or young adult’s behavior and attitudes toward everyone around them. I can personally say that my brother hasn’t been the same person since he started playing Fortnite a few months ago. 

Most parents see Fortnite as just a survival game to play once you get home from a long day at school or work, but for others, they use it as a way to say that using guns and getting headshots from killing people is okay and fun. It’s not the type of encouragement that we need to be giving children these days. More than one parent has written that their child has had to have monitored screen time because of how they were acting as they played, and how they would find their children up at 4 a.m. still glued to the TV screen. Even kids themselves who have friends who play wrote reviews about how they have lost their friends due to this game and don’t have lives because they’re too consumed. 

While Fortnite is undoubtedly an entertaining game that has taken the world by storm, it’s not worth the negative effects.
