It’s tough for me, an old fogey, to understand a lot of hype around Fortnite. I get the basics: it’s a popular Battle Royale game that tons of people play. But that’s about it. I don’t understand it when people are talking about Heavy AR strategies in the game, or what the newest Lil Kev challenge is.
Then there are the “skins,” which are easy enough to understand but I can’t for the life of me get the uber-excitement that’s generated behind the newest crop of NFL Skins, or what a “Hunting Party” skin is either. I’m totally lost.
What I’m not lost on, however, are the Fortnite memes that are coming out of this game. Sure, they’re filled with tons of inside jokes, but I’ve got to admit that I find these hilarious, even with my limited knowledge of the game.
