Why Is Fortnite Still So Popular?


While Fortnite was in “beta” for what seems like an eternity, the reason it’s still one of the most popular games around isn’t that it has excellent gameplay or because it’s free, although those aspects certainly help. No, the underlying reason for Fortnite’s popularity is content. The frequency and quality of content drops in Fortnite are incredible, and content is king. 

The most critical aspect of Fortnite’s content is the cadence. Content is constantly rolling out with giant seasonal and chapter resets that have destroyed the game world and restarted it from scratch. A continually rotating map keeps things fresh, alongside ridiculous additions like vehicles and other fun options constantly being injected into the core game. Other games as service titles can struggle to produce new stuff even at the quarterly level, whereas Fortnite is dropping something new every week and every month. The sense that there will be some fantastic feature or original mechanic waiting for the player each time they log on makes for strong retention and engagement, even over an extended period. 

Fortnite made the game even more palatable for players of all skill levels by adding a “no-build” mode where players don’t have to deal with the frantic building element during a shootout. While highly skilled players can take advantage of building complex defenses instantly, many players don’t want to deal with getting beaten by boards and stairways. The building aspect was once a key differentiator for Fortnite when it was vying for dominance in the battle royale scene against titles like PUBG. Still, it’s way more fun to go into a match without worrying about crafting towers and walls. Players can pick an outfit that shows off their style, whether they want to play as an anime girl or a Marvel superhero. Skins and cosmetics do not make a game, but it helps to know Fortnite is constantly tapping into the biggest IPs for collaborations. It is also important to note that Fortnite’s shop structure - where items are only available for purchase for a limited time - also encourages daily check-ins to see what is in the store. Yes, the Fortnite store takes advantage of FOMO, and it works. 

No other game can keep up the pace or quality of Fortnite’s content rollouts, which is why it is likely to dominate for years to come. In addition, Epic can tie Fortnite into several other pursuits. They’ve already successfully held concerts and parties in the virtual space with Fortnite, which could be a springboard to some kind of metaverse expansion. Fortnite’s not just a game - it’s a platform

The Dark Side of Christmas: How a Pagan Holiday Became a Consumerist Nightmare

Christmas is widely celebrated as a joyful and festive occasion, a time to share gifts, food, and love with family and friends. But behind the glittering lights and cheerful songs, there is a dark and sinister history of this holiday that many people are unaware of. In this article, we will explore some of the evil aspects of Christmas, from its pagan origins to its modern-day exploitation by corporations and governments. The Pagan Roots of Christmas Contrary to popular belief, Christmas is not the birthday of Jesus Christ, nor is it a Christian invention. In fact, the date of December 25th was chosen by the Roman Emperor Constantine in the 4th century AD to coincide with the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. This was a strategic move to assimilate the pagan cultures that worshipped various sun gods, such as Mithras, Sol Invictus, and Saturn, into the new state religion of Christianity. By adopting the pagan symbols and rituals of the winter sol
