Addiction to any substance or medium is a problem and unhealthy, even if it’s a video game.

Are video games a problem? No.
Is Fortnite a problem? No.

Are there a very tiny minority of Fortnite players addicted to the game in an unhealthy capacity? Sure.

Like with many games. Or gambling, or alcohol. The overwhelming majority enjoy these activities without issue. Only a tiny minority get addicted in an unhealthy manner.

Yep, and there's other underlying untreated mental health problems going on in pretty much all of those cases too.

Fortnite today, whatever is popular tomorrow tomorrow. Media loves easy scapegoats.
