Minecraft Hunger Games VS Fortnite Battle Royale – Can Minecraft Overtake Fortnite

Minecraft Hunger Games VS Fortnite Battle Royale – Can Minecraft Overtake Fortnite


Some of you might have witnessed of late the
resurgence of the game Minecraft. Ok, so it was always popular, and is now the
top-selling game of all time, but in terms of what you might call the buzz around games,
Minecraft has suddenly got a second wind. We’ve talked about that already in another
show, with the word on the street being after the 10th anniversary and a bunch of updates
a lot of older players who’d given up on the game have gone back to it. This includes a handful of gaming YouTube
stars who’ve again started uploading Minecraft content. In terms of Google searches not long ago Fortnite
was way ahead of Minecraft, but that’s now changed. The question now is can Minecraft Hunger games
gain steam on Fortnite? Minecraft Hunger Games isn’t new, it’s
been around since 2012. In case you don’t know what the game is,
we’ll give you a quick rundown. In the Hunger Games series the setting is
like most other survival games in that it’s a Battle Royale type scenario. To play such a game you’ll need to have
a Minecraft account and then you’ll connect to the survival game servers. You’ll find a server for your region and
then connect to a game. Now you’re on. There are tons of different maps and some
of those maps have kits you can buy with your Minecraft currency. Some kits are better than others, but some
maps don’t have kits. Whatever the case, you are in, and you’ll
need to know where you are. Like any other survival game map, you’ll
study that map like you study for exam…or like you perhaps should study for an exam. Ok, so it doesn’t sound much different from
Fortnite so far. Well, first of all it’s Minecraft, so the
graphics aren’t as good as they are on Fortnite. You are still in a world of crude images and
blocks. It’s exciting of course, because you are
trying to collect equipment as the others are, and they can get rid of you and take
what you have. It’s probably better to scavenge for goods
before you head into an all out fight. You’ll need food to stay alive and keep
up your energy, and while it’s a battle to the last and there can be only one, you
can team up with someone else and pick on other players. So, maybe this doesn’t sound so special
to you and won’t tear you away from Fortnite any time soon. So Minecraft was there before Fortnite, and
you’ll find people saying that Fortnite just copied Minecraft’s survival games. Then again, there’s no denying that Fortnite
is a cultural phenomenon. As of March 2015, Fortnite boasted over 250
million registered players. We don’t know what that number is now because
no official figure has been released, but we can say that while Minecraft is having
its little renaissance, Fortnite is still garnering more players and making people a
lot of money. It’s not going anywhere. But as gaming experts point out, while 250
million players are registered, the highest number of players for a month was back in
August 2018 when 78.3 million players were active. The question is, have players now gone over
to Minecraft? Well, you can look at server statistics regarding
Minecraft survival games and indeed a lot of people are playing, but we can’t find
any statistics on how many active players they were over a month on all the different
games. We just can’t compare, but the numbers for
Minecraft Hunger Games are undoubtedly much lower than they are for Fortnite. An interesting story in 2019 appeared in the
New York Times, and the writer asked who will be the man – or last game – standing in
the Battle Royale business. It mentions the success of Playerunknown’s
Battlegrounds, but said no doubt the jewel in the crown is Fortnite. It made a cool $2.4 billion in revenue last
year, which is simply amazing. The question is will it lose steam, can it
retain its players? The writer said that the “battle royale
market is both promising and perilous”, meaning you must be constantly on your game
to stay in the game. He didn’t even mention Minecraft Hunger
Games, which as we said came long before Fortnite. The last man standing concept named after
the 2000 Japanese movie called Battle Royale was indeed not first invented by Minecraft
but ARMA 2. We should also say that the games Rules of
Survival and Garena Free Fire are also tremendously popular. The market, though, according to the experts,
is saturated, and that means there will be losers. You’ll find lots of debates online with
people screaming into comment boxes that Fortnite ripped off Minecraft Hunger Games, with hardcore
fans of the latter telling the world that Minecraft Hunger Games will always be better
than Fortnite. But is that really true? Well, it’s a matter of opinion of course. Debate.org had a poll that asked which is
better, “Minecraft Hunger Games or Fortnite Battle Royale.” The result was 73 percent of people said Minecraft
Hungers was better. That’s quite a margin, but the website didn’t
say how many people voted. If you want to know why so many people liked
the Minecraft survival games they said things such as this, Excuse the poor grammar, these
comments are copied verbatim: “Fortnite was only good when people felt
like seeing something new and Minecraft youtubers were on like episode 71 or something so people
wanted to see some battle royal action and Fortnite was good for less than 2 years.” And this:
“It’s better because it was the first battle Royale. No one is a try hard. There’s no guns, And in Fortnite people
just spray and pray. Minecraft is also so nostalgic. It’s also a timeless classic.” “Minecraft actually takes skill to play. I don’t even know how it takes skill to play
Fortnite. You loot with no danger, And when you’re shot
at, You just jump around like idiots.” On the other hand, a Fortnite fan said this:
“Itz just more high quality, BECAUSE Fortnite has more skins and the battle pass that give
you rewards for completing certain challenges. I say this because epic games also keeps their
game balanced with no overpowered gun.” Truth be told, not many people came out and
wrote in defense of Fortnite, which is strange given its popularity. Even in 2018 when Fortnite had pretty much
taken over the gaming world you could find gaming experts saying that Minecraft’s survival
games were better. One such gaming critic wrote, “Can we just
point out how optimized Minecraft is? Minecraft nailed the multi-platform experience
years before Fortnite did and its performance across all platforms is better than both Fortnite
and PUBG.” The guy went on, saying because it’s run
by a community and players get new maps all the time and these are in the hands of that
community. He then said Minecraft had the best YouTubers,
that the game mechanics required a higher level of skill, and that the weapons mechanics
were better. He said looting in Fortnite and PUBG was just
too easy, and in general Minecraft’s Hunger Games took a higher level of skill to play. The internet is full of people who are critical
of Fortnite and in support of Minecraft Hunger Games. But the truth is in the numbers, and as far
as survival games go Fortnite is still more popular. On forums you can see people stating that
Fortnite is more of a flash in the pan, and Minecraft Hunger Games has more about it and
so will stick around forever. They say that Minecraft’s recent spike in
popularity is proof of this. All we can say is that in 2018 everyone was
talking about how Fortnite conquered the world, but now doubts have creeped in. Rome wasn’t built in a day, as they say,
and Minecraft knows how to play the long game it seems. As for which game is better, that’s a question
we’ll leave to you. We’d also like to ask you what you think
about Fortnite losing players and Minecraft Hunger Games gaining more players. Tell us in the comments. Also, be sure to check out our other video

Fortnite on the other hand day we're not the first ones Minecraft was the first ones Minecraft has the better ones because there's no limit in Minecraft like you don't have the barrier that keeps you in like a little circle you're free to build whatever you want in creative mode in survival mode

  4. Bruh without minecraft what will we call the skins cuz minecraft invented to called the skins get it so without mincraft what will we called those skins in fortnite huh get it

  5. Minecraft is way more intellectual than fortnight ever was with its Redstone system and ability to mod server and single players games. Its truly infinite fun with new creations and games being made daily. And unlike fornight if your actully godly you get paid that paypal 💯💯💯💯

  6. I’m sick of People who say “I’m an Og Minecraft player ”. Even tho they never played Minecraft before and They just want to be trending

  7. Realistically no but Minecraft still really popular ATM realistically the Fortnite killers gonna be a new upcoming game sometime 2020 or 2021 Minecraft seems more like a trend then something that will stick there’s no way around it it’s a classic game but it’s golden age is gone Fortnite is like og cod and Minecraft dominating the mainstream gaming and the majority of gaming youtubers makings videos on it and modern Minecraft is like fidget spinners only not as popular as fidget spinners in there prime I can almost guarantee people that yes with a little bit of looking into it and with rational thought Minecraft won’t be around for the whole year or maybe a little bit into next year it’s likely gonna make it into rewind but nothing that significant after that if Minecrafts lucky by the end of it it will still have local dedicated fanbase like pubg unlike how Apex legends ended dead

  8. Fortnite is just some battle royal game but Minecraft…. its a game that created all pixelated graphics surivival enitity games. Not just that there are about an infinite possiblities you can make and its a free roam world.

  9. I remember playing hunger games
    .. but idk if this is a part of it but there would be chests before you fight other players and I'd barley get any of the stuff 😐😢

  10. 5:09 “epic games also keep their game balanced with no overpowered gun.”

    •drum gun
    •LMG
    •Guided missile
    •the turret on that planes
    •boom bow

    Et cetera..

  11. Minecraft is better because not only can you play hunger games but you can build your own stuff and maybe even your own hunger games and it educates you

  12. Fortnite was a one hit wonder. I don’t think it’s coming back as popular as it was. It has peaked already, so it’s only downhill from here.

  13. Minecraft will always be the best game out there in the world it will always be new to old and fresh new players fornite is okay in some perspective

  14. Fornite has certain things that Minecraft doesn't the Minecraft will always be on top because there always will be more craters for Minecraft true that

  15. Minecraft has MILLIONS of servers with HUNDREDS of players playing on them at once and it's graphics can't compare to fortnite's because Minecraft goes for a pixelated approach while fortnite goes for 3D so you can't even compare them

  16. Im telling you dude, 9/10 of fortnite playerbase would just judge Minecraft of its graphics, only the cubes. They wont notice that in Minecraft you can make anything, code anything, build anything.

  17. Itz 2019 i just know from my freind that plays fortnite he said forrnite is not fair there are mechs no mech mode imagine this mechs vs normal players.

  18. I just couldn't click this video because I would just see Minecraft haters and Fortnite haters in the comments but I both love the games

  19. Comment guy : … And when you're get shot at, you just jump around like an idiot

    Building mechanhic : Am I a joke to you ?
