The game "Fortnite" is being compared to cocaine in a lawsuit.

The lawsuit in Canada alleges that the game was designed to be addictive, resulting in the brain of players releasing the "pleasure hormone, dopamine."

The lawsuit, filed by two parents, also alleges that the game was developed by psychologists, statisticians and others over four years so that Epic Games could reap lucrative profits.
