Fortnite has been driving may kids and even adults crazy. Kids play endlessly, In class or even in the library, Reports say kids have actually downloaded the game into class computers and play. I believe this game should be banned

" Kids play endlessly, In class or even in the library, Reports say kids have actually downloaded the game into class computers and play. "

- This happens with everything throughout history including phones, Music, Or even books. We shouldn't ban something simply because some people abuse it? By that logic, We should ban cars since some people drunk drive, Or ban marriage because some people abuse their partner. Do you not think this is the first game or fad this has happened to? Silly bands, Minecraft, And the clash of the clans were all games which disrupted the school system so does that mean they should be banned? The fact is that kids are always going to find a new fad to get into which will disrupt the school system, However you're going to punish millions of kids happiness just because a few kids disrupt the class with fortnite or are annoying?

I agree with this, However, Banning fortnite during and after school hours specifically is going to harm more people than it will stop people.

Schools should ban gaming on school computers though.

Oh sure, Ban switchblades because some people flick them too much, Or ban gum because some people stick it under the table in school.

Bah I say to that.
