Poll: Your favorite Battle Royale game! (17 votes)

H1Z1: KotH 0%
PUBG 29%
Call of Duty: Blackout 12%
Fortnite 18%
Apex Legends 41%

Which of the above is your go-to game? I’m aware other games exist in the genre, but it’s my opinion that the above are the most popular - currently.

I picked PUBG - Xbox One version specifically. I didn’t enjoy Fortnite (too cartoonish and the build aspect was distracting). Apex I could live without (how do you take wall running out of the Titanfall engine?). I haven’t played Blackout (I’ve heard good things) or H1Z1 (I’ve watched plenty of streams though).

Thoughts?

And before you attempt to be edgy and claim ‘none of the above’ or ‘the genre sucks’, thanks for not contributing to the thread. ;)

On the list played PUBG the most but going with Apex Legends. Apex simply offers the best competitive multiplayer experience of the bunch and this is coming from someone who plays a lot of multiplayer games, and critical on quality.

Apex has the best controls, the matches are frequently stable for a Battle Royale game, and has yet to be exploited to the level we see in Fortnite.

Second place would be PUBG, slightly ahead of Fortnite, the latter has too many gimmicky exploits that diminishes competition. And Epic Games constantly add new things to give players heavy RNG advantages. PUBG is the least stable of the lot, Mobile is oddly leagues ahead in that area, even then PUBG has the abundance advantage. So always plenty of tactical variety from the player-base, no one match is ever like the other.

I don't play them that much honestly, but I don't exactly dislike them. If a friend calls me to play a BR game. Will likely say "yes" they're fun with friends. I prefer Souls, MH, and Quake, but one could do much worse. .

Eh, it’s not in the same league as the games I bring up. That, and you can’t edit a poll. ;)

I’ve tried a few, but the genre never clicked with me until I played Apex. Absolutely love that game

I wouldn't use your linear taste as a pole for quality.

Best selling franchise on the planet "not in the same league" (over 495 million), and a game series that will outlast everything on the list. .

Poll part makes sense though, can't argue with that.

Tetris 99

Tetris 99. Only good br game there is.

The irony. .

PUBG was my first, love playing it. It's unpredictability is amazing. I only ever played a handful of game of Fortnite. I do not like the building aspect. As StoneMountain64 says, it's a building game first, BR second.

Never played Blackout but seen plenty of videos. Looked average.

Loving Apex but only with friends; can't be dealing with randoms who don't work together as a team. Otherwise, very fluid and good fun/balance.

Wow, no one’s picked Fortnite - the most popular of the bunch. Odd.

Or at least I think it is...

I’m not really into Battle Royale games but I would say that Apex Legends is my favourite out of all of them. However I haven’t played Blackout and I think that one looks to be pretty good as well.

I've only played Blackout and beat it once. I guess that's mine.

Gotta love it when a troll makes a thread and demands you answer their question a specific way.

I went with Fortnite for the most parts and I did enjoy that game on PS4 during it's early days.

Yeah, the added content is coming across as very commercialised.

And that's very off putting for a lot of Gamers who are older than ten.

I've chosen Fortnite because of its relevance to the real world
