We only really need the major applications of Word, PPT, Excel. I’d rather not have to pay an annual subscription.
I used to be of the same opinion but soon realised that every few years I splashed out on a new version of Office.
For about three years now I have had a subscription to Microsoft 365, which allows me to Install premium Office apps on all my devices and be signed in to 5 at the same time. This includes both my iMac and my wifes PC as well as phones etc. It costs £59.99 a year and always has the most update version of all the apps and gives you 1TB of cloud storage.
There is no need to have the DVDs any more as it is downloaded and updated on line.
As far as Fortnite goes, I am not a gamer but you can run it on a Mac if you follow the link for guidance.
