You have users that will rate on an "all or nothing" scale where only the lowest and highest numbers are viable options to them. You have those that will rate a game highly because it's a meme. Then you have those that will participate in review bombing of a title because of a variety...

    Fortnite Might Add a First-Person Mode

    This is perhaps not the FPS from Epic you were looking for.

    Epic Games is no stranger to first-person shooters, what with them having made several of them with the Unreal franchise and all. Lately, their real bread and butter has been found in Fortnite, a game that is very much not an FPS.

    That might be changing in the near future. Known Fortnite data miner and leaker, HYPEX, shared that Epic Games is developing a first-person camera mode for their battle royale.
