The Existential Terror of Battle Royale


Not really sure about PUBG, did play it, but Eve Online still trumps for me. To me, its better as both feeling more connected with the world we live in or just playing it for escapism.


“though it lacks a single zombie” - you should try zombie mode!


I’m late to the game which is PUBG. First game, almost died to the force field and red zone…ended up in the top 10. My SMG was in single fire mode for some reason, and was too scared to switch screens and lookup the key for burst-fire. Killed by a guy with no pants. Heart hasn’t pounded this hard for awhile!


the Battle Royale game mode perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the current moment

I would have appreciated some explanation here, what on earth do you mean?
