Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds game review

In this boom of a hundred battle-royal style video games, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (commonly referred to as PUB-G) comes out the other end victorious. A simple premise, lack of campaign, and repetitive nature do nothing to hinder this game from the massive sales and recognition it has been receiving since the moment is became available. The first time I played it I yelled out “Holy shit! It’s like a better Hunger Games!” and then had a difficult time doing anything else for a bit. You start the game, and every game for that matter, jumping out of a plane onto a HUGE map with ninety-nine other people. From there you collect whatever you can to stay alive, dodging and killing other people, and staying in the zone. PUB-G can also be down right infuriating. The possibility of taking 5 minutes to get in to a new game, only to be shot in the head the second you land is very high. Countering that point though, the gratification and satisfaction of actually WINNING a round is more than any other game I’ve ever experienced because of the fact that you have a 1% chance of winning. Literally… I love this game, even though I’ve chucked my headset once or twice.
