  • A quick heads up for those of you that have kids playing this game

    That's the same for literally every online game including FIFA!
  • E gaming will be (mainstream) massive in a few years with celebrity status & mega cash to boot!

    Not saying that the point raised is not a valid one, but this is potentially a problem for many games and not just Fortnite.
  • E gaming will be (mainstream) massive in a few years with celebrity status & mega cash to boot!

    F1 Esports started last year, F1 teams getting involved and Fernando Alonso has his own esports team.
  • There is a time and a place for gaming. It is when it becomes obsessive and the soft option for not just them but also parents who don't have to then take their child to the park or invest time doing other things with them.

    Agreed. But it's not just games, kids are addicted to looking at a tablet/phone. I worry about the social element and their posture.
  • Just seen on Twitter that ‘Ninja’ is currently live on Twitch playing Fortnite with Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Kieran Trippier with nearly 200k viewers. Crazy.

    Fifa has very good safeguarding measures as their growth has been sustained over many years.

    The problem with Fortnite is that the growth has been so rapid that they’re unable to respond to reports of abuse quicker than 48 hours. They’re playing catch-up and it seems this issue is taking second priority to game development.
  • It’s a problem because you can’t really get into the game properly without voice. But if you allow your kid voice Cr access he could be exposed to all sorts:

    I keep my PlayStation at friends only and that seems to do the trick. Not friends of friends which could be any fucker, but people who I know about:

    Seems reasonable enough to me, surely the parents have to be the first line of defence for stuff like this?
  • Clash of generation comment coming up here.
    I think too much time spent in front of their computers etc is an appalling thing to be happening to many kids of today.
    Just saying.

    They're going to end up like the humans in WALL-E.

    This was my Fornite/League of Legends/World of Warcraft/FIFA18 etc

    My dad try to stop us playing it on the household tv as he said it would ruin the screen(this was 40 years ago & way ahead of the "it will leave ghost marks"). Probably used it for a year or so & then Atari /zx spectrum came along.

    I never progressed past ping-pong. However my machine did have a shooting game and gun where you'd try and hit a fast moving dot. I soon realised that if you shot the score that was displayed at the top of the screen it registered as a hit. I used to thrash my Dad on the highest speed setting!
