Most of the time I hear news about Fortnite is about how someone kid was doing something silly inspired about the game. At this point I don't even know if any adult plays the game.

In my mind Fortnite is some kind of virtual kindergarden where all kids hang out. I see no problem with that and honestly it's probably better than playing Call of Duty.

However, such a penetration on a younger playerbase makes it even harder for me to get into it, like an adult in the kiddies pool. It just feels wrong.

I don't think Epic planned for such a young playerbase but I believe they are now aware of it and making an effort to keep the game kid friendly, if anything because their kids also play it.
