Fortnite was 2018’s most important social network

Bijan Stephen op The Verge:

Epic Games managed to produce a hit, sure, but the genius of it is how it’s rewritten the idea of what hanging out online can be. Fortnite is a game, but it’s also a global living room for millions of people, and a kind of codex for where culture has gone this year — it’s a cultural omnibus that’s absorbed everything from Blocboy JB’s shoot dance to John Wick. It got Ted Danson to learn how to floss. This thing is here to stay, as a new kind of social network.

Volledig mee eens. Fortnite doet me meer denken aan wat ICQ en MSN voor mijn generatie waren (ja, ik word ook oud), dan aan een echte hardcore game.

Dat maakt het e-sports-gebeuren errond des te interessanter. Je kan onmiddellijk zien en begrijpen dat je “de beste” kan zijn in FIFA of Call of Duty, voor Fortnite is dat toch net wat anders.
