Fortnite has been the reigning king of games since their epic battle royal game mode has taken action. 2017 was the year that started the battle royal trend.

Battle Royal is a game mode where there is no revives and you only have one life in a commonly 100 person 1v1.

PubG is the game that was most commonly known for the battle royal style gameplay but in 2017, Epic Games came out with an update for one of their games called Fortnite that provided the game a battle royal option.

Weeks, maybe days, after the game mood was released, the game slayed every other top trending game on the market. People did not play Call of Duty, Halo was no longer popular, and PubG was unheard of. The massive shadow that Fortnite cast upon these games was one that could not be overcome.

Even efforts by Call of Duty adding a battle royal mode in Black Ops 4 could not give them back the throne. Though it may have taken the spotlight for a few weeks, it did not last long.

And for over a year now, Forntite has held the top trending game on the market.  That is until Apex joined the competition

Apex Legends is new battle royal style game that has absolutely demolished every known video-game that has ever come out. Reaching 2 million daily players just two weeks after its release. The thing about Apex that made it stand out from other games is the same as Fortnite. It is free to download and free to play the game. Making a game free gives it a lot more attention especially as an already trending game. Not everyone wants to go out and spend $60 on a game that they might not even like.

The current topic of games is now the competition between Fortnite and Apex Legends. Which is better? Which game is the current sitting best game on the market?

Cody Raymond, a sophomore from Sartell High School, expressed his standpoints with Fortnite and Apex Legends.

Cody claimed, “I personally like Apex a lot more.  I feel like Fortnite has too many little kids playing, with that Fortnite just got old. Apex is the new thing.”

Cody said that he was a pretty avid Fortnite player before Apex came out playing roughly five hours a week. He claimed that he wasn’t so dedicated that he’d spend any money on the game except for the battle pass, which gave you options to level up through challenges to gain certain items to use and wear with your character, but Cody stated, “I was pretty good, good enough to where I didn’t like the game because I wouldn’t lose.”

Cody shared his overall thoughts on both Fortnite and Apex, “ I like [Fortnite] but not enough to play daily. Maybe if my friends start playing it again I will but as of right now, no.  I like how Apex has a Titan Fall feel to it. I also like how high you jump as long as taking no fall damage. I just wish there was a solo option or even a battle pass like Fortnite to give you a reason to keep playing beside it being fun.”

Some say Apex will shut down or kill Fortnite.  Cody doesn’t think so:  “I don’t think it will ever kill Fortnite,it’ss bigger right now but who knows where either game will be in 2 years.”
