If you care what England's royalty thinks about gaming and social media, Prince Harry is here for you. During a recent event at the YMCA in West London, the prince offered his opinion on both topics -- particularly the global favorite Fortnite.
According to his comments at the event, there's no benefit to having Fortnite in your house. In fact, he feels it causes extreme issues because "it's created to addict" players and keep them looking at their screens for extended periods of time.
"It's like waiting for the damage to be done and kids turning up on your doorsteps and families being broken down."
Because of this, he feels the "game shouldn't be allowed."
While his comments didn't call for an outright ban of the game, it is being interpreted that way. If nothing else, it implies he'd be happier if the game were barred.
Of course, people have been calling for bans on different games for decades, and while they can definitely be addictive, there has continued to be an argument as to whether the actual fault is with the games or just that -- as with almost anything -- some people are prone to become addicted to them.
So, there you have it. Prince Harry sees no benefit of people playing Fortnite and believes it shouldn't be allowed. He hasn't officially called for a ban, but it doesn't mean someone won't do it on his behalf. We'll just have to wait and see.
