- LEGO Fortnite offers a deep survival mode with exploration, resource management, and village improvement, surpassing expectations and delivering an addictive family-friendly experience.
- Minecraft lacks basic furniture options like chairs and couches, while LEGO Fortnite provides a wide range of decorations and furniture items from the start.
- Minecraft could learn from LEGO Fortnite’s approach to interior design, adding usable furniture like chairs, couches, and tables alongside smaller decorations to enhance the game’s aesthetic and player experience.
LEGO Fortnite has gotten off to an excellent start. Revealed during the Big Bang event alongside Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival, the crossover game has proven to be far deeper than anyone expected, as Epic Games has knocked it out of the park with its family friendly survival mode. Players can explore caves, befriend LEGO Fortnite’s animals, and visit different regions, all in hopes of acquiring resources to improve their village and attract more characters to move in. Decorating said villages is also a big draw for the game, and this decoration process is an area where Minecraft could do far better.
To be clear, Minecraft does have its share of decorations for players to use within their homes and bases, such as its famous paintings and some flower pots that players can add different colored flowers to. The community has also had fun coming up with their own designs for refrigerators, toilets, and so on. Still, with Minecraft having a bed that characters like Steve will actually lay down in, it is strange that the game has avoided adding some proper chairs and couches, as well as other basic furniture items like tables. Fortunately for LEGO Fortnite players, Epic Games has delivered exciting decorative items from the get go, and Minecraft may want to take notes from it.
Other Games Could Learn a Lot From LEGO Fortnite’s Approach to Animals
LEGO Fortnite pushes players to gather several resources from animals in order to stay alive, but it gives players options when dealing with them.
LEGO Fortnite’s Decorations Are a Cut Above Minecraft
LEGO Fortnite Has Furniture Items That Minecraft Players Have Regularly Asked For
When decorating the interiors of buildings in any game, there are a handful of items that players would expect to have access to. Chairs, couches, and tables come to mind, as well as kitchen counters, wardrobes, and natural-looking storage containers. Minecraft lacks all of these, whereas LEGO Fortnite contains each of them despite being a brand-new survival game. Clearly, Epic Games recognized that furniture is one of the basic things players would want to use while decorating the homes they worked so hard to build, and the wise decision to include it allows it to dodge similar calls for furniture options like what Minecraft regularly experiences.
Admittedly, the LEGO Fortnite furniture is not perfect. While it serves as a great decorative option, with chairs and couches also able to be sat in by NPCs, players unfortunately lack an interact button to sit in them themselves. However, this could easily come in a future update, and even without the option to sit, it is nice to have the furniture.
Minecraft Could Also Benefit From LEGO Fortnite’s Smaller Decorations
LEGO Fortnite goes above and beyond, as not only does it have multiple couch, chair, and table designs, but it has smaller decorations that Minecraft lacks as well. Players can build a toilet and a roll of toilet paper, table props like kitchen utensils and plates, and more. While Minecraft may allow players to come up with their own designs for interior furniture, these take up plenty of space, and some official blocks would certainly be welcome. Beyond that, Mojang’s hugely successful game leaves players with limited options for small decorations, lacking everyday things like LEGO Fortnite‘s toilet paper rolls and unused plates even though they would add a lot to the aesthetic of kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms.
LEGO Fortnite boasting a better array of decorations not only gives it an advantage over Minecraft, but hopefully will serve as inspiration for Minecraft to add its own usable furniture and more small decorations. Flower pots and paintings simply are not enough in 2024, as even a game within a game like LEGO Fortnite has managed to surpass Minecraft’s interior decoration options. While Minecraft refusing to add usable furniture for so long makes it seem like it could never arrive, and smaller decorations are added at a very slow pace, the game’s consistent support means that there is always a chance for Mojang to overhaul its interior design.
Lego Fortnite is a mode within Fortnite that draws inspiration from Minecraft. You’ll build structures, craft weapons, and upgrade your village to help you survive the monsters that come out at night.
