I don't get it, I mean I'm 35 and I do consider myself a gamer since I play many pc games such counterstrike, doom and so much more. But what the hell is all this hype about fortnite, I mean it's ok but why so much hype?

My thoughts exactly I personally hate Fortnite and other games like League of legends, rainbow six siege, etc. These types of games are turning people into dead beat zombies who lock themselves in doors for days on end and the worst part as a fellow gamer is that developers are releasing unfinished products onto the market with the promise that a batch will later on fix many issues/bugs mean while forcing players to spend money on DLC's just to keep the game interesting or playable. Look at street fighter V you have to buy half of the roster that's a damn shame considering how expensive games are being sold for. If this is the future or gaming I quit.
