I'm somewhat out of loop on this but why is Battleground Player Unknown so popular?

I often see it being streamed on Twitch and the sales figures so far are impressive.

I tried PUBG ended up refunding it, battle royal isn't my thing.



Yeah i've looked into it and watched you tube video's and that and it looked cool in some ways but i also saw sides to it that put me off.
Iam a big fan of Battlefield but obviosuly this game is very different to that. I was put off by it being early access and only one map, thought it looked like it could be a camp fest (it has been explained to me that you cant really camp because the map closes in/there's a battle zone that you cant camp out side of but still looked fairly sniper/camper friendly to me), hackers, lag (no Australian servers), etc
It did sound cool, get dropped in and find what ever weapon that you can find on the field (as opposed to selecting a calss and weapons before hand) and try to be the last one standing.
But i dunno, maybe iam just too obsessed with Battlefield and dont like buying early access games.
It is kind of cool how you can play as a teams of two or four but at the same time, once you're dead you are out so what, if you die straight way you just watch you friends play the rest of the round and wait?

Not sure why i mentioned that i was playing on line pokies lol? I guess that is what can happend when you post drunk and i think it was weighing on my mind, the fact that i was so far up but only won a small amount in the end and was kicking myself and must have felt the need to express it?

Yeah iam not sure hey? HEAPS of people on my friends list/clan mates/ex clan mates/people that i know/their mates/work mates, etc play it.
For a while there whenever i jumped in mumble to game i'd see all my gamer mates playing it all the time. It was really being recommended and talked up and people were trying to get me to buy it alot.
I dont see as many of them playing it now AS much but yeah, alot of my mates seem to prefer it over Battlefield at the moment.
Not sure if it's just because it's new and something different? i know some people got bored of BF1 or didn't like it and none of my mates really play COD so maybe there's just no better shooters out there at the moment?

I dont reckon iam going to bother with it hey.

Tempted... but I'm saving for a trip right now. I just bought Terraria for a friend to play with me since it's on sale.

I picked up Fallout 4 and Game Dev Tycoon. Lots I want, but a little cash poor at the moment.
