 Minecraft is a survival game that starts with nothing (just your fists). The goal of the game is to get to the end and beat the ender dragon, although it really does not end. You can also go into Creative Mode and have unlimited resources. Fortnite and Minecraft have made many people excited though some adults think that one or both games make gamers crazy and/or will influence us about gun violence and weapons. The new generation is gaming and this is a fight between what hundreds of millions of people argue about. 

Many people have been playing Minecraft, recently Fortnite has become more popular. Fortnite: Battle Royale came out and became the number #1 on the trending list for video games.

Fortnite is very addicting and you can find yourself broke from buying the currency, V-bucks. Jacob Kafeety and Simmon Ramos say that, “The old Fortnite is really good and is a 9/10, however, the new Fortnite is about a  5/10.”

The new updates for Fortnite have only upset players, they enjoyed the old Fortnite more. Fortnite now has 230 million players while Minecraft now has 480 million players. The game started getting worse during season 10. Then Chapter Two came along and revived the game by a little. The people who have been playing the game for a long time say that Epic Games has ruined the game and made it boring.

So yes Minecraft was made way before Fortnite and was way more popular. Then Fortnite took over Minecraft. but statistically, now Minecraft is better and a more popular game.
