Drake does it. NFL players do it. Your little brother probably does it.
The popular video game Fortnite has generated quite the buzz since it was released on July 25th, 2017. The game has received so much popularity due to its availability, simplicity, and trendsetting gameplay.
Fortnite is available to all ages who are capable of playing, and even when you are older enjoyment can still be found in the game. The concept of the game is very simple; you want to gather the most materials and stay alive until you are the last man standing.
The most common trend that it has set since the game has been released are the famous dances. Fortnite has actually taken dances that have already been trending and put them in their game for gamers to use while they play.
Even though surprisingly a good majority of people do not play the game, there seems to still be a good familiarity with it. Even if you have never seen the video game being played, you have more than likely witnessed a dance being performed outside of the video game whether you are aware of it or not.
A few freshmen were interviewed about the game. They were asked a few questions about their familiarity with the game, if they played the game before, how they heard about it, and what their opinion of the dances were. All these questions were leading up to “What Fortnite dance are you”?
In the game Fortnite whenever you confirm a kill on your opponent or make a good play, it is a custom to put on a dance in the game. There are so many dances that all display different personalities. What we wanted to do is let freshman choose the Fortnite dance that best described their own personality.
Whether Fortnite is being played on the weekends with the boys, or whether it’s people trying to imitate the dances on social media, it’s safe to say Fortnite isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
