Nor have I; but I've read about the bad aspects of it in the press.

Basically. The game itself is innocuous, but it's kinda the "fast food" of gaming. Super basic and very ubiquitous as a result. So the fact that some gamers are drawing lines in the sand over or are otherwise extremely obsessed over it is kinda weird.

The comments I saw were about how younger players were suckered into excessive microtransaction payments. The game took over $1bn in the first year.

Yeah, as far as I know Fortnite has costumes and dances and stuff that you can buy for your characters. Nothing that big or game-changing really, just a lot of really shiny stuff that costs money. I've never played the game, so I don't know too much beyond that.

I remember this from the textbook for my high school health class, though I don't think they showed all the pictures. It's from a man who was diagnosed with schizophrenia asked to draw pictures of cats as he got worse.

Not quite. Those pictures are by Louis Wain, when he was in a lunatic asylum. But he wasn't asked to draw them - he was an artist who'd always drawn cats, usually anthropomorphic, but became more experimental later in life. I had a book of poetry illustrated by him when I was young.
