Games like PUBG are coming in thick and fast and include the likes of Fortnite, but also some big AAA contenders like both Black Ops 4 and Battlefield 5 later this year. If they don't float your boat though, there are plenty of other games like PUBG.

Pick your battles Some say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds it might be quite annoying that there are so many other games like PUBG out there. The entire concept of the Battle Royale genre isn't exactly new though, it was just a case of games like PUBG, including Fortnite, making it ridiculously popular right now - heck, even Black Ops 4 is doing it this year.

I had knew that I wanted to make games since the day I finished the Halo: Combat Evolved campaign.
