#GamingBytes: Five harmful effects of PUBG Mobile

PUBG Mobile offers an intense tactical Battle Royale experience and as a result, draws large numbers of gamers.

Most of these young gamers quickly get addicted, trying to win chicken dinner. To combat this addiction, there have been proposals to ban PUBG Mobile.

Recently, the Gujarat government issued a circular to ban PUBG.

In this context, we present five harmful effects of PUBG Mobile.

In context

PUBG Mobile can harm you, find out how

Effect 1

This violent, nihilistic game often leads to aggression among youngsters

PUBG Mobile is extremely violent in its gameplay.

Gamers have to win chicken dinner by eliminating 99 opponents, using weapons and items at their disposal.

Notably, the Chinese government has taken a strong stance against the game on grounds of the violence, which it promotes.

This violent, nihilistic game often leads to aggression among young gamers, which causes quarrels and fights in real life.

Effect 2

The game is addictive and ruins your social life

Playing any game means you are sitting in front of a screen and concentrating on it. You do not have time to go out and meet others.

When you play an addictive game like PUBG Mobile, it further ruins social activities.

You might feel like you are interacting in-game, chatting with squad-mates from other countries, but spotting enemies and loot is not social interaction!

Effect 3

It can lead to addiction and harm mental health

The rush for chicken dinner can make you addicted to PUBG Mobile, prioritizing it over everything else.

Notably, in the UK, gaming addiction is one of the leading causes of divorces.

This addiction can also harm your mental health, as recognized by the World Health Organization in 2018.

PUBG Mobile can cause anxiety and stress in gamers, due to the lack of social interaction.

Effect 4

It leads to lack of sleep and bad physical health

PUBG Mobile can be very alluring, especially if you get a taste of victory.

You will want to keep playing on different maps against different opponents.

This might affect your sleeping habits, and lack of sleep leaves you tired and takes a physical toll.

More importantly, sitting in front of a screen for hours is bad for your eyesight and overall health.

Effect 5

It leads to bad academic scores as well

Bad academic score of their children is every Indian parents' nightmare.

To be honest, PUBG Mobile leads to gaming addiction. As a result, children devote more time to gaming (which is way more fun anyway) than academics (which children are bound to find boring).

This leads to poor academic performances since most kids fail to effectively balance time between gaming and studying.
