One gaming genre that has blown up in the last few years is battle royale. It has taken over the gaming industry. We\u2019ve seen so many games have success with this concept, including <em>Fortnite<\/em>,<em> Apex Legends<\/em>, and <em>PUBG<\/em>.\r\n\r\nAll of these games work pretty much the same. You start out with no weapons or resources. You\u2019re forced to search frantically before running into other players. Once you do, you take them out until you\u2019re the last one that remains.\r\n\r\nDespite how popular these games have been, Prince Harry is not a fan. The British prince himself recently shared his distaste for the genre \u2014 focusing on one game in particular. That is, of course, <em>Fortnite<\/em>.\r\n\r\nIn an interview with Hollywood Reporter at a YMCA event in London, he had some choice words for the battle royale juggernaut. He remarked, \u2018\u2019That game shouldn't be allowed. Where is the benefit of having it in your household?\u2019\u2019\r\n\r\nHe added, \u2018\u2019It's created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It's so irresponsible. It's like waiting for the damage to be done and kids turning up on your doorsteps and families being broken down.\u2019\u2019\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s quite a polarizing take from Prince Harry. Today\u2019s generation is heavily involved in gaming, and of course, you\u2019re going to get proponents on both sides of the debate. Are games like <em>Fortnite<\/em> addictive, though?\r\n\r\nIt really depends on who you ask. Those against games say they take away from real-world interaction. Gamers spend too much time locked into fantasy worlds that have no real application to every-day life.\r\n\r\nThose supporting games claim that they\u2019re a great way to escape. They're also great for earning money and starting careers. We\u2019ve seen so many popular YouTubers have success with streaming <em>Fortnite<\/em>. At the top of that list is Ninja. He\u2019s changed the streaming climate of gaming and has taken gaming to unprecedented heights.\r\n\r\nLike most things that leave people feeling happy and sometimes euphoric, games can be addicting. However, they\u2019re not the problem. The real issue is monitoring usage from families and the gamers themselves.\r\n\r\nAs long as gamers are able to do what they need to do in both their personal and professional life, there\u2019s no reason why they can\u2019t enjoy hours of gameplay each day. Gaming is part of today\u2019s culture, and it doesn\u2019t seem to be going away any time soon.
