  1. Gaming disorder well you guys have new disorder it’s a disorder that makes you not shut up over something that you don’t know about

  2. Well fornite does bot corrupt brains parent just dont supervising them and not complaining about children are not supposed to be playing a game for 5 hours straight and guess what they have been doing this so long like mario on the nintendo they tried to ban it its so dumb

  3. As a gamer I could understand how frustrating gamers can be especially since older people remember family time and stuff

  4. Um so you'r crying about how bad fortnite is well have you herd of CS:GO h1z1 and pubg um anyone remember those games blew up? yeah um I guess ya'll did not complain how those video games are VIOLENT so yeah you guys are getting to old and rusty. (ALSO COPY AND PASTE THIS TO VIDEOS LIKE THIS)

  5. Here’s the thing, it’s not epic games fault that the kids like it. And how come these people don’t talk about games like COD were the blood is spraying out the bullet wounds

  6. There should be a limit to kids of how long they can play
    And if you don’t put a limit on your child’s gaming time
    and you just complain about the game your not parenting
    Fortnite is bad it’s these parents that are bad

  7. So your telling me a game with no blood no guts and has guns that lead to you being teleported and funny costumes and fun emotes….. Makes kids violent?…….the only evil in fortnite is lag!!

  8. This is sooo bs if kids are playing too much fortnite then it’s the parents fault for not watching what there doing not the games

  9. If you look at the genre of the game it says: “battle royal” that means: 100 people fight to the end. There is many other violent games (more violent than Fortnite) such as PUBG and H1Z1. When Fortnite is literally a spaceman doing the floss. How violent can Fortnite get?

    Also they used ninjas vid without permission

  10. Yeah because kids like schoolwork right?

    Fun fact: when Tetris came from the USSR to the U.S it was a marketing strategy to advertise the game as "The game made by the russians to lower the productivity of workers in the U.S."

  11. I know im late but you guys don’t know anything you guys are just idiots who think that every game is bad I hat this game now but when this came out this video saying its bad that made me mad because thats pretty much all I heard back then Oh its inappropriate because theres violence yea shut

  12. Why gamers are addicted to games…
    First of, even though some of us are teenagers, we also have problems, some of us don’t have someone to tell our problems to even parents. We play games to take our mind off our problems, don’t call us slackers or addicts cause we’re just taking out our problems. Second, some tells us we have no future, what if we want to play games forever, sure we won’t have jobs but what if we want to continue what we do and maybe start a gaming channel so that way we can also earn money from making videos, other YouTubers even make more money by playing games than having jobs.

  13. My parents let me play all day but I have at least 3-4 hours on my trampoline or I go out but my bros on it 24/7 😂

  14. I don’t get how people think gaming causes disorders bc it really doesn’t it’s just something fun to do when its raining

  15. Hey hey actually fortnite is a cartoon game actually and its been said from epic also theres no blood and its a fun game also your stupid

  16. Everything was fine untill my parents saw these videos and now i cant play anything at all, not only fortnite but any game, even though im 17 and we played with friends, not much at all… never would have happend if these parents would have put RULES and LIMITS on their children!

  17. Those streamers are making tons of money so if you ban fortnite those people are going to lose money because of their houses and stuff like that.

  18. “School bans?”
    Bruh. How would you ever be able to play Fortnite at SCHOOL? I mean, if schools ban talking for the most part, how would you ever be able to play a computer game where you need a good computer at SCHOOL?

  19. TODAY show 2018: fOrTnitE iS bAd fOr yoU
    TODAY show right now: Teen wins 3million dollars on Fortnite world cup

  20. ooooooooooh I now how to solve this problem if your kids are playing at school or not paying attention to you take it away from them

  21. Booooooooooooooo😔😔😔😔😔😔😟😟😟😟😟😢😢😢😭😭😭😭😤😤😤😤😤😤😤🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡😡😡🤯🤯🤯🤯😨😨😨🤯🤯
