History of PUBG

What people seem to forget is that PlayerUnkown was the ORIGINAL! He made the mod for Arma 2 (which I played a lot) then transferred it to Arma 3 (which I also played a lot). The transfer included a selection between Altis and the smaller map I believe it was called Stratis? Anyways PlayerUnknown had the large scale common PUBG type mode and also the smaller scale Ghost Hotel. Personally Ghost Hotel was my favorite as it would cram players into a hotel section of the map (about the size of Mylta Power). With the success of the Arma 2 and 3 mod it soon became a part H1Z1. From there H1Z1 made it their main game and soon after PUBG came out as a stand-alone based off the Arma mods..... then came the rip offs. Most notably Fortnite. People seem to also forget that Fortnite was also it’s own game. It didn’t rip off PUBG at all. But of course that had to change when they saw the success PUBG was having. So now we PUBG a realistic looking/feeling survive to win game. Then you have Fortnite, the drop out of a bus with a glider bs thing and build stuff to hide in. Personally I thought Fortnite was a joke, meant for people who couldn’t afford PUBG. I personally hate Fortnite. But hey now u know why. It wasn’t just Fortnite that ripped off PlayerUnknown however... even one of my all time favorite games (ARK: Survival Evolved) took ideas from PU in its own style with survival of the fittest mode. In summary: PUBG is a FANTASTIC game. It was original in its entirety. I believe that with the success of Fortnite it encourages video game companies to be lazy and not adventure into new ideas. For instance, if a new CS came out, and it was big you would see a lot of companies coming out of the wood work to copy it. I look at this rivalry as a Call of duty vs Battlefield situation. Pick your side I guess, you either like the more realistic or you like the cartoon base building flying bus simulator.

    It was the original game but not the original idea. Battle Royale has been around for ages. And I don't think that Fortnite and h1z1 are rip offs they are their own games with unique features and they have had a lot of work put into them. I personally enjoy Fortnite a lot more as its a smaller map, more action and has that little bit of crazy in there. I see people comparing Fortnite and PUBG to each other and it's like comparing CS:GO to Rainbow 6 Siege. Both are popular and have similarities but each have their own unique quirks. (And i'm banned from one and not the other but thats not the point). Each games deserves the same amount of love and each game has its own fanbase but I don't like people going out of their way to insult these games with the whole mine is better idea. Both games are enjoyable. Ripoffs to me are poorly put together clones such as mobile ripoffs trying to intimate the success of the main games.

    Fortnite is fun in its own right. And speaking of ripping off, PUBG was "inspired" by Fortnite's emotes. Now I'm not a fortnite fan by any means and I actually prefer PUBG, but lets not discredit the work of the developers by calling them lazy. Fortnite has a somewhat of unique twist in its own right.

    I respect both PUBG and Fortnite and honestly enjoy both. I think people should just let others enjoy what they want to enjoy instead of accusing other games of being negative when the game that they are defending have plenty of flaws

    I respect your opinions but please don't say that you hate Fortnite.... Every game has its unique style and unique abilities and ideas behind it... Even if you don't like it, learn to respect it
