Poll: PUBG or Fortnite Battle Royale?

By Mark Delaney, 10 months ago
Happy Friday TA! Last week's poll decided our next TA Playlist game. In case you missed it, it'll be Fable II that our community plays throughout March. Join us for that beginning on the first of the month.

This week, we're continuing a conversation we had a few weeks ago about the popular battle royale genre. It seems a lot of TA is opposed to seeing the mode infiltrate other games, as evidenced by nearly unanimous disapproval for our recent article suggesting other games may add battle royale modes and — ahem — maybe even benefit from doing so.

A day after we posted that story, which suggested Red Dead Redemption 2 may add battle royale, it was revealed in an unconfirmed leak that precisely that is planned. Whether or not it succeeds is another matter. It's going to continue to creep into other games, but what about the two at the forefront right now? Fortnite's battle royale spin-off and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have been fighting for the top spot on Steam and Xbox Live's multiplayer charts for months now.

You can only pick one! Okay, not really. Both or neither are valid too.You can only pick one! Okay, not really. Both or neither are valid too.

Most players seem to have picked a side and stuck to it, but is that accurate or just a misperception? We expect many on TA specifically will buck the trend entirely and choose neither, but we're curious where our community comes down on this ongoing feud. Sound off in this week's poll!
