Video Games Review

Playing video games is quite popular. Video game fever is high at Weston Ranch. To some, video gaming is a way of life, and that way of life begins a heated debate: Which games are the best to play?

Out of all the games The Prowl reviewed, we came up with the top five most played games out now that everyone is rushing home to play.

At the top of the list is Fortnite. The top game is Fortnite. Fortnite
is an online video game that falls under a genre banner that’s exploded in popularity over the past year, the “battle royale.” ( Released on July 24, 2017, it’s a game where everyone is against everyone or teams against teams. It’s a game for all consoles.

“Fortnite is popular because it’s something different. It’s not like a first-person, shoot-em-up game. You get to watch the action from behind the players, like the third person,” said sophomore Darrin Williams.

The second top game out is GTA 5, and it was released on September 17, 2013. GTA 5 is an action-adventure where you are a criminal building up cash and trying to win over other people in a place named Los Santos.

Coming in at number three on our list is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
