    Your Child Probably WON'T Become A Neo Nazi After Playing Fortnite

    But, says gaming journalist and expert on the subject, Tim Pool, the claim that Fortnite is rampant with Nazis is probably untrue — and they're even less likely to be out to get your kids.

    Writing in Real Clear Politics, Pool suggests that the claims made in Piccolini's Reddit interview have been unnecessarily inflated.

    "While it is interesting that someone who claims to be a former white supremacist made this claim, that does not mean it is true," Pool explained. "It certainly does not imply a widespread epidemic of this happening. Just because he might know some people who did this does not mean it was common or effective."

    For most players, Fortnite is a battle royale game and nothing more: they fly into an island, compete to be the last fictional character standing and fly out. But there is a chat function, and like many video game chat functions, Fortnite's is irreparably gross and feature discussions that would be more at home in elementary school classrooms than in forums populated by grown adults.


    Despite Media Hysteria, Your Child Probably WON'T Become A Neo Nazi After Playing Fortnite, Expert Explains

    FFS these people are ignorant .....

    a player 'may' be in the lobby as long as 30 sec, hardly long enough to be recruited into a NN Group
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    GTA, it's more fun to run over prostitutes with your car and then shoot them and toss them in a dumpster. Then steal there weed, cocaine and dildos and look for the next victim.
    No one cares.
