PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS

One of the best Battle Royales out there in my opinion and even though people complain there isn’t enough updates here and there do I still find it to be a fun and well put together game. The premise is simple, take 100 people, smack them all together on an island that slowly gets smaller and smaller until only one stands, or two or maybe four. It’s just really cool and fun to play on such a big scale and with so many people. But the reason why PUBG is so good isn’t just the game mode itself it’s the game and how it’s build. There has been quite a boom of Battle Royales since the releases of PUBG and Fortnite. I can’t say or know what came first or what influenced the others in the bigger picture but PUBG where quite in front on this aspect. They have also been able to stay quite a bit in front only really overtaken by Fortnite in the aspect of popularity. And the reason is obvious, it follows the idea of the games it was “built” after. The game was made after the lead designer Brendan Greene created the ARMA 2 mod DayZ: Battle Royale. The ARMA series focuses around a realistic first person experience containing lots of military equipment like tanks, guns and much more. This mod quite simply takes these game mechanics without some of the heavier things like the tanks and reuses them into a new game experience. As the game has sold over 50 million copies as of writing this is it quite obvious that this kind of game mode and gameplay is something people enjoy and all the other Battle Royales out there such as Fornite just further proves this. So is PUBG fun? Absolutely, I’ve had my fair share of games and fun times mostly with friends but also by myself trying to last till the end. As there of course is 100 people is the competition quite tough and it’s not always easy to stay alive till the end. With that said with a little bit of practice can you quite easily get a higher ranking if you play smart and eventually rack up those wins. It is in my opinion a fun game but it feels sometimes that it is a little too much dependent on the overall current opinion like if a lot of people say “nah it’s not fun right now” it gets less fun. So if you can get around the negativity or pessimism then I’m positive you’ll find it a fun game. The last thing I want to say is that the games can be a little long which might turn some people of or pull others in but that’s more of personal preference the way I see it.
