Young generation is playing it each and every day. Everyone loves to play it. Celebrities, Youtubers, college and school students all are playing it.
If you don't know what PubGis. You must be not living on this planet. winner chicken dinner" is winner moto of pubg. Lets see how Pubg affects you in real life?
Any kind of gaming is symbolised by parents as time-wasters, and worse, some education experts believe that these games corrupt the brain. Playing violent video games can easily be blamed by the media and some experts as the reason why some young people become violent or commit extreme anti-social behavior.
Most of the bad effects of video games are blamed on the violence they contain. That's what people says about PubG as well. Children who play more violent video games are more likely to have increased aggressive thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and decreased helping others.
People can be addicted to video gaming. The WHO in 2018 declared gaming addiction as a mental health disorder. Addiction to video games increases their depression and anxiety levels.
Addicted people also exhibit social phobias. Too much video game playing makes you keep busy with the game only. You may become socially isolated. You may have less sleep. Also, you may spend less time on other activities such as doing reading, sports, interacting with the family and friends and also sometimes not concentrating on your career as well.
Although, Every other person react in a different way. For some, its interesting and competitive while for some its boring. A person had said "PubG did change my perception in real life. I have now became a better employee because I am more careful with every single detail at work (I work as a receptionist in a clinic). It's like it unlocked a whole new Spectrum of ways to act in my brain. I know it sounds crazy but PubG really IS like a drug, a good one that is, when taking responsibly, just like anything else." on reddit. PubG changed his life. But other people commented in another way on the same article.
I myself also played this game for few days. And my personal experience is- PubG is a very addictive game. You can't get asleep while playing this. You spend or waste a hell lot of time on PubG. And also, you not only spend your time on playing but also on watching others on streaming channel and youtube. I also faced a kind of heaviness when i started playing because of too much concentration it needs. But, later on this got resolved. Don't know about other, but i love this game untill and unless this is a huge addiction.
A single game takes around half an hour and yes, you can not stop at one game. So, this is really a time consuming game.
Also, i have noticed one of my friend complaining of vertigo, weakness and flickering in front of eyes after he became addicted to this.
What I suggest is Just don't make this pubg game your addiction.
