As many people know one of the most successful video games that the world has seen during the 10’s decade is Fortnite which was initially released back in 2017 for multiple game systems such as the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch since its release. As a survival Battle Royale shooter title the game had managed to reach at least 125 million players this past summer which was an extraordinary feat. Also, Fornite has managed to earn at least $300 million in revenue since its release back in July 2017 and includes crossplay between various game systems making it almost irresistible to play for those who own the game. While some might be surprised by the fact that Fortnite chosen over games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Fallout 4 two games that were actually released this year there is no denying the amount of impact this title had on the gaming world following its release.
In fact, some would argue argue that Fortnite inspired the Battle Royale mode that we have recently seen in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. As it currently stands Fortnite is currently the most popular Battle Royale game out right now and the game can take credit for making that particular genre more popular than its ever been. So Fortnite winning “Game of the Year” from Golden Joysticks is not such a big deal to everyone.
