here's the thing most games have a goal but some don't end like trove you keep playing and the goal of fortnite is to win but you do it over and over again so I disagree

I'll agree that some FPS or RTS can sharpen you, but only if you play competitively. It strikes me as a narrow exception that proves the general rule.

This is a very general statement that doesn't account for all games. Some games do teach skills. First person shooter games have been shown to improve hand-eye coordination, Kinect promotes physical fitness, and Rocksmith actually teaches you to play guitar. If you feel all games are a false sense of accomplishment, maybe you are just playing the wrong games.
