A Lot of Really Silly People Want Fortnite Banned

first_imgIf you keep up with gaming news, you know Fortnite is the hottest game out at the moment. Everyone, including famous rappers, is playing this First Person Shooter. Well, it seems some aren’t all too happy about that. A new petition was recently posted on Change.org that calls for the banning of the “addictive” Fortnite. Even in the world of video games, you can’t rise to the top without having folks wanting to tear you down.This petition was started by a girl who apparently believes Fortnite is stealing her boyfriend. The petition’s description reads: “Girls have to deal with their boyfriends playing it all day and ignoring them. Together we can stop this dumb game from existing. It’s taking over our boyfriends lives and brainwashing them.” Hey, have you ever thought about — I don’t know — actually playing with your significant other? Games are great for bringing people together, in case you hadn’t heard.Some of the other petitioner’s reasons for wanting Fortnite banned are equally as ludicrous/hilarious.“Fortnite is annoying, it is distracting when people talk about it in class,” says one petitioner. “It is lowering my friend’s grades as they are addicted to it. I don’t know what to do, she’s throwing her life away for the game.” I had to deal with kids talking about tamagotchi back in the day. I found that annoying too, but I didn’t want the damn thing banned. I do appreciate her concern for her friend, however.Another petitioner says: “Fortnite is turning into more than a game, it’s turning into an unhealthy obsession. I have heard kids saying ‘Why bother to read books or do work when I can play Fortnite?’.” Kids say stupid shit, bro. Relax.“I’m signing because Fortnite is a bad game and that people are getting in fights and hurting themselves because of this game.” Getting into fist fights over video games. This takes me back.Alright, I think you all get the point. To be honest, I can’t even get mad about this. If it were a nation’s government saying it wants to ban Fortnite, I’d be concerned. But no, it’s just a bunch of goofballs who don’t seem to want to let others have a good time. I wonder if these same folks felt this concerned during the big Pokemon Go craze. Fortnite is simply in the zeitgeist at the moment. Those who are currently “addicted” to it will soon move on to something else. This petition is ultimately pointless, but it does provide us with something amusing to talk about at least.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img
