Best Battle Royale game: 'Fortnite' or 'PlayerUnknown's Battleground'?

Gamers are having a hard time deciding between Battle Royale games. "PlayerUnknown's Battleground" was the original Battle-Royale styled game before "Fortnite" adapted it, gaining a crazy following. Many hardcore gamers still prefer "PUBG," but celebs like Lil Yachty and Drake played "Fortnite" publicly and made it extremely popular. Both games offer cool features and cosmetics. But which Battle Royale game is your favorite? 🎮

PC Gamer's Steven Messner and James Davenport broke down a few of the "Fortnite" features—like the game's fun weapons and vehicle options:

Fortnite's cartoonish stylings don't match its militaristic arsenal. Its assault rifles, hunting rifles, sniper rifles, submachine guns, pistols, revolvers, rocket launchers, grenade launchers, and crossbows all imitate the real deal in appearance and behavior. But in practice weapon recoil is nearly invisible, and bullet spread is only a problem for players that never lift their finger off the fire button. Some sniper rifles need to account for bullet drop, which is about as complex as Fortnite's weapons get. 
"Fortnite" isn't concerned with traditional vehicles because they have other options.

Fortnite doesn't have any vehicles to drive, but clever players have found a way to ride rockets and pull off some insane kills. With the ability to build ramps over mountains, terrain isn't much of an obstacle anyway. In tandem with gear like the launchpad, players can sail across a third of the map to outpace the storm or flank distant opponents without the need for wheels. Epic has stated they've tested vehicles internally, but worry about how they'd affect the pace of the game.

TechRadar's Emma Boyle broke down why the weapons and maps of "PUBG" may make it more appealing.

Befitting of its gritty realistic visuals and large maps, PUBG has far more items and weapons than Fortnite. That’s not to say Fornite is short on weapons — there are a range to choose from, and Epic Games has stated that it'll be adding more in the future; in fact, only recently it added a minigun to the mix. But its system is less full, complex and deep than PUBG's and fans of serious shooters may find it less satisfying. 
According to Boyle, maps matter:
In PUBG, when the map has shrunk down, players must use the world around them to move to higher ground or duck for cover. Generally, PUBG matches are much more tense and stressful affairs.

Because you can’t build your own vantage point or protection, you have to move to an advantageous position fast or you'll end up dead. And because you can’t use player-made structures to safely pin-point the locations of other players, the chances of someone hiding in an abandoned house waiting to ambush you are much higher.

This tends to mean PUBG players are far more cautious and matches can last far longer, while feeling far more intense in their final moments.
