Considering Fortnite has made more money in a year than any movie has ever made in any period of time, we can at least say one needs the other less.

On an unrelated note, I'm still waiting for the day when you're going to write the name of the game correctly.

So has Fortnite exceeded GTAV's record for profits?

Can't say for profit, but, IIRC, it has for revenue. Though the comparison I made was for movies, not games.

It's very likely that it has for profits. I find it very hard to believe that Fortnite cost more than GTA V as far as development and marketing goes.

And Fortnite is a free-to-play title right? That's amazing and discouraging at the same time. Why would anyone make single-player games or end-user moddable games if they go w/the Fortnite model for big $$$ profit?

It's funny but my 11-year-old nephew and his friends have completely lost interest in Fortnite. I never played it and I don't think I ever will.

that's annoying. when we played the quake games, all we had to do was to download free skins and place them in the game folder. that was purely cosmetic fun, btw.

now someone found out that people would pay for this cosmetic stuff. which is weird for my taste, but whatever floats your boat.

sucks though that games get locked down so the players "own" only the digital content tied to their account.

I had a lot of fun playing Save the World.

Then Battle Royale came along and Epic forgot Save the World ever existed

It is what it is.
