PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a last man standing game based on an island. All 100 players in solo fight must locate guns, armour and supplies all to be the sole winner.

Upon first look PUBG doesnt look like anything special, just a shooter with a last man standing formula. However, the more you play the more you understand how it has become so popular. This game may not be as aesthically pleasing as most games now days or work most of the time but it does have its hooks, and boy are they good ones.

Firstly, this formula creates a very competitive environment in which can break even the most placcid people. There's only so many times you can die by a naked dude with a hand gun who layed in the grass most of the match. Secondly, this is the biggest seller of this genre, its online multiplayer features to play with friends or randoms. This is by far the best part of this game as playing with friends and randoms leads to some of the most interesting game play and conversations ever.

Lastly is the glitches, yes I know, how could you like the glitches. I've personally got mad at the ridiculous ways people manage to glitch kill, but it also creates some of the funniest moments I've had in games in a long time. As you've all probaly noticed every streamer and YouTuber seems to have at least one video about the funny glitches.

This game has so much more potential in the gaming community now. All I can hope for is that this experience becomes a lot more refined in both gameplay and apperance.

PUBG has become one of my go to games to play with friends when I just wanna sit back and have a good time. I can happily recommend this game to everyone but with a warning that there will be very infuriting moments throughout.
