THANKS for writing this and sharing such valuable insight into why this game has captured the imagination of many.

I am an American father living in Japan and my 13-year-old son loves “Fortnite” and sometimes I worry he plays too much.

Thus, this article eases my mind some and actually makes me want to watch him play more closely. It’s definitely an attractive-looking world and not so focused on the violence, as you point out.

Anyway, well done! I hope other parents with kids who love this game will read your article and take it to heart.
