It’s tough for me, an old fogey, to understand a lot of hype around Fortnite. I get the basics: it’s a popular Battle Royale game that tons of people play. But that’s about it. I don’t understand it when people are talking about Heavy AR strategies in the game, or what the newest Lil Kev challenge is.
Then there are the “skins,” which are easy enough to understand but I can’t for the life of me get the uber-excitement that’s generated behind the newest crop of NFL Skins, or what a “Hunting Party” skin is either. I’m totally lost.
What I’m not lost on, however, are the Fortnite memes that are coming out of this game. Sure, they’re filled with tons of inside jokes, but I’ve got to admit that I find these hilarious, even with my limited knowledge of the game.
Spongebob can be related to anything.
I don’t remember this episode of “Magic School Bus…”
Speaking of para-gliding.
A beautiful accident.
The controls struggle…
How they come up with costumes.
You know the addiction is real…
The game will help you flex for the gram.
Karma’s a you-know-what
Every man for himself.
To be fair…
Hey wait a minute…
Anyone obsessed with a game, really…
It’s hard to enjoy.
A sight for sore eyes….
Building like a boss…
Some locations are more strategic than others.
