    Fortnite

    I'm 30. I haven't played video games regularly in a few years. Late last year 3 of my co-workers started playing Fortnite together and goaded me into playing because they needed a 4th. 7 months later I'm hooked. I get home after work, exercise and then play 2-3 hours with my friends 5-6 times a week. I watch videos. I even learned what Twitch is. I know who the best players are. I feel like a child.

    I'm kind of conflicted. On one hand, I still am a little embarrassed to tell people that I play the game all their 8 year old children play. On the other hand, I'm getting good and I think it's a genuinely great and unparalleled game. One that requires a unique set of skills. One that has no real peers. One that I could practice for hundreds of hours and still think of a million ways to improve. I do get the hype, and I do genuinely think it's a great game.

    But I'm 30. Shouldn't I have grown out of video games by now?

    Do any of you play?

    Please either roast me or tell me that you are also a grown *** adult and play it as well. Thank you.

    Am 44 and I still love video games, fortnight sucks though.

    Then again I given up on multiplayer games specially because too many flying kids saying racist **** gets old.

    I stay to my single player joints.

    Not at all. Pretty sure our generation is the one where video games became a thing at home so I don't see why we would all of a sudden give it up

    I'm 30 and still play. Nowhere near as much as I used to bc I have way less free time, but I definitely still enjoy playing.

    I don't do online though. Single player story mode games or sports games for me.

    This is what I tell my nephews with whom I still play Xbox with.. our generation is responsible for the success of video games.

    Adults playing video games is chill. Adults playing Fortnite is wack.

    I play Fortnite a fair amount as well. Typically if I'm the only one online I'll play 2k or something like that, but if my friends are online we'll play Fortnite for hours.
