      Fortnite:

There was a new feature added to the popular game called Fornite this month. Fornite decided to add a revolutionary feature which was the option to thank the bus driver . This new feature allows players to thank the bus driver before they hop off into the map and have an all out battle with 99 other players. Adding this feature to Fornite shows that developers care about bus drivers and that everyone should thank them. This feature is personally funny to me, and by having it in the game it could probably teach people to be grateful and thank the people that help you.

  • Travis Scott – Astroworld
  • Trippie Redd- Life’s a Trip
