"Fortnite, like any well-designed video game, satisfies what we are all looking for. According to Edward Deci, a professor at the University of Rochester in the Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology, and clinical psychologist Richard Ryan, people need three things to flourish. We look for competence — the need for mastery, progression, achievement, and growth. We need autonomy — the need for volition and freedom of control over our choice. And finally, we strive for relatedness — the need to feel like we matter to others and that others matter to us. Unfortunately, when considering the state of modern childhood, many kids aren't getting enough of these three essential elements."
