    The enormity of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' success will have surprised even its developers. This is a shooter that didn't invent the Battle Royale genre in gaming, but which certainly perfected it to the point that it found a massive, massive audience. With more than 30 million copies sold, PUBG is a bona fide phenomenon with an influence that will be felt in the industry for years to come.

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the most immersive, intense, adrenaline-pumping, winner-take-all shooter of its time. Ushering forth a new era of Battle Royale gameplay, its technical qualms are the only thing standing in the way of the path to near perfection in its gunplay and survival-first gameplay.

    PUBG lives up to its monstrously large reputation. [Issue#197, p.74]

    PUBG has managed to create experiences you can't find anywhere else (or at least, you couldn't). It needs to improve some aspects and polish some things to become a legend, but the foundations are already very, very good.

    For the time being, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds won - pun intended - the battle royale of battle royales. This new "gold rush" spawned a good number of decent titles, but the one created by Brendan Greene if by far the best and funniest to play (even if there's still room for improvement).

    Whether you play solo or in a group, successfully executing adaptive tactics to win intense, high-stakes firefights makes for an incredibly rewarding experience. Every player has unique stories of their most memorable matches, and even after hundreds of hours, PUBG continues to inspire rousing tales of victory and defeat.

    I have faith that with such a large following (and cash flow) the PUBG team will eventually get things squared away, but for now, this game still feels like it's in early access. However, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is an absolute blast to play and has a broad appeal that few other games can match. As long as you temper your expectations (and make sure you have a decent PC), then this is one of the top games of 2017 to check out.

    Best multiplay shooting game ever!
    Although this game still have bad optimization and server lag issues, It's getting better at every patch
    Best multiplay shooting game ever!
    Although this game still have bad optimization and server lag issues, It's getting better at every patch and even some bugs make my gameplay experience so fun.
    New desert map with parkour system on the test server is also amazing. Fancy graphic, better optimization, better game design.
    This game was great example of early access. And from today, this game is great example of new age multiplay shooting game.

    PUBG is a great game if you have a decent computer (I'm talking AT LEAST a GTX 1060 or higher). If your computer can handle the game, it isPUBG is a great game if you have a decent computer (I'm talking AT LEAST a GTX 1060 or higher). If your computer can handle the game, it is incredibly fun. There was a major issue with hackers for a long, long time on the North American servers up until the most recent patch 2 weeks ago. I honestly hated the game during that period of time. Bluehole fixed it. Seeing that 99% of the hackers were from China, they made it so that everyone with China's ping ended up in the same match (i.e., the hackers were placed with each other in the same game - the ultimate troll). PUBG is beautiful, challenging, and addictive. Bluehole has worked so hard to make this game the way it is. There will always be room for improvement, but at the moment, with my 1000 hours logged since 2017, I can honestly say that there is nothing wrong with the game (assuming you have a decent computer, once again. The players that complain usually have cheap computers or are not skilled at the game - if you get killed by a camper, that's your fault for not stocking up on flash grenades or being more alert - it's not rocket science.

    I see why people are annoyed at this game, but it easily beats fortnite. I almost never get any lag and I dont have many complaints at all.
