Fortnite addiction sending kids to rehab?


GOT IT.>>>NOW THIS, VIDEOGAME “FORTNITE” HAS 200 MILLION WORLDWIDE PLAYERS. THERE ARE 300 MILLION PEOPLE IN AMERICA. 2/3 OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION, THAT IS THE EQUIVALENT, 200 MILLION WORLDWIDE. THERE ARE REPORTS THAT KIDS ARE SEW ADDICTED TO THE GAME THEY HAVE TO GO TO REHAB. THAT IS ANOTHER STORY WE’LL DEAL WITH. HERE IS CAPTAIN ROB STEINBERG, GAMER WORLD NEWS HOST. “FORTNITE,” IT IS MADE BY EPIC GAMES. IS THAT THE MOST POPULAR VIDEO GAME IN THE WORLD AT THIS MOMENT?>>I WOULD MAKE THE ARGUMENT, YEAH, I THINK “FORTNITE” IS PROBABLY THE MOST POPULAR GAME IN THE WORLD. YOU JUST MENTIONED THEY HAVE 200 MILLION REGISTERED USERS. THAT IS 200 MILLION DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS THAT THEY HAVE CURRENTLY REGISTERED TO PLAY THE GAME WHICH IS INCREDIBLY MASSIVE. YOU’RE RIGHT. IT WOULD BE EQUIVALENT OF 2/3 OF THE UNITED STATES. STUART: BUT 200 MILLION ACCOUNTS MEANS THAN YOU HAVE MORE THAN 200 MILLION PLAYERS IN ALL PROBABILITY.>>IT IS ACTUALLY THE OPPOSITE. SO THEY HAVE ROUGHLY 80 MILLION PLAYERS THAT ARE PLAYING ON A MONTHLY BASIS. THIS IS 200 MILLION ACCOUNTS ON THE GAIL AS A WHOLE. YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER “FORTNITE” IS GAME CAN BE PLAYED ON MULTIPLE PLATFORMS EVEN ON YOUR PHONE. THERE IS A LOT OF SITUATIONS WHERE SOMEBODY MIGHT HAVE MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. SO THAT 200 MILLION IS MADE UP OF ROUGHLY 80 MILLION PLAYERS THAT HAVE OVER 200 MILLION ACCOUNTS. STUART: IT IS MADE BY EPIC GAMES. PROBABLY THE MOST POPULAR GAME IN THE WORLD AT THE MOMENT. AS YOU LOOK ACROSS THE SPECTRUM OF THESE VIDEOGAMES ARE MOST OF THEM CREATED BY AMERICANS?>>I WOULD SAY THAT IT IS SORT OF A TOSSUP. THERE IS A LOT OF REALLY GREAT COMPANIES OUTSIDE OF AMERICA MAKING A TON OF REALLY GREAT GAMES. THERE ARE COMPANIES HERE IN AMERICA MAKING A MUCH OF REALLY GREAT GAMES. RIOT GAMES WITH “LEAGUE OF LEGENDS” WAS MADE IN AMERICA. IT IS MOSTLY OWNED BY TENCENT WHICH IS CHINESE COMPANY IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN. BLIZZARD WHICH MAKES “CALL OF DUTY” IS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. STUART: WHAT ABOUT KIDS GOING TO REHAB BECAUSE THEY CAN’T STOP PLAYING “FORTNITE.” WHAT’S THAT?>>THAT IS PROBABLY A DISCUSSION STUART, WE HAVE ROUGHLY HE HAVE FIVE YEARS. EVERY TIME A MAJOR GAME COMES AROUND WE TALK ABOUT GAMING ADDICTION. IT IS IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AND AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION DOES NOT RECOGNIZE GAMING ADDICTION AS AN ADDICTION. THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION DOES. IT IS I BELIEVE A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM AND ACTUALLY A SIGNIFICANT ISSUE. BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE KIDS PLAY AS TON OF FOR THE KNIGHT. DOESN’T MEAN THE KID IS ADDICTED. YOU HAVE TO SEE THE SYMPTOMS OF ADDICTION, CAUSES SOMEBODY TO HAVE AN ADDICTION. ARE THEY CANCELING PLANS TO PLAY THE GAME MORE? ARE THEY LYING ABOUT AMOUNT OF TIME THEY’RE PLAYING THE GAME? DO THEY FEEL GUILT WHEN THEY’RE NOT PLAYING THE GAME? WE DON’T WANT TOE OVERANALYZE WHETHER PEOPLE ARE ADDICTED TO PLAY GAMES. STUART: IN MY DAY, IT WAS ADDICTION TO TELEVISION. GENERATIONAL THING.>>EXACTLY.

  1. It's about time people start acknowledging gaming addiction as a real deal. It's just/almost as toxic as any other kind.

  2. What about the people who cant take the cell phones out their damn hands for more then 10secs?? do they have to get help… i mean people spend hrs on those things… EVEN in the same house still text each other… i mean got a prob with gaming should have a prob with people over using cell phones as well…. at least they aren't driving and gaming…. or gaming and takin selfies that could get them killed… .

  3. Tried Fortnite… got bored really quick. Don't see the appeal. It is fun for a while but addiction? War Thunder is much better IMHO.

  4. THE WHOLE NATION LIVING VICARIOUSLY IN THE TELEVISION THIS IS ANOTHER FOR OF THE SAME THING

  5. This is old news, Fortnite is on its way out….it was a short term trend game, just like Minecraft was.

    But I miss Minecraft 😭

  6. I don’t see Fortnite as a game that requires or develops any skills. I mean sure it has its own uniqueness, in that it allows you to randomly build stuff anywhere, but there isn’t much to the movements and mechanics. It doesn’t look visually pleasing either. There’s no uniqueness in the guns. The only difference between a sniper and an assault rifle is that one is semi automatic and the other is fully automatic. The game also performs really bad and is not at all inspiring (which is one of the most important aspect of the games that I like).

  7. What the hell I like fortnite but I am in secondary year 7 so we get lots of exams and homework but I am in school for 7 hours and I still play for 1 hour a day and 3 hours on weekends

  8. Hey who wants to play Duos??? My gamertag is agjd11222612, I'm on the Ps4 and I can get on every Saturday and Sunday and most of the rest of the week except for Monday through Tuesday.
