The next time you see your spouse or kid glued to the mobile phone, please make sure that they are not suffering from the most dangerous addiction of today’s world – PUBG!
In today’s stressful world, where people just want an escape from their daily life problems, dangerous mobile games like Pokemon Go, Blue Whale Challenge, MOMO Challenge and PUBG are claiming more lives than ever!
These games make people so addictive that they are trapped inside the fantasy world and start believing it as the real world.
If you feel we are exaggerating about the effects of this game on families, then the recent story of a father leaving her pregnant wife and son for PUBG will be an eye-opener!
This incident was reported by a website called ‘World of Buzz’when a woman shared the trauma caused to her family through the Facebook post written in the Malay language.
In the post, she shared that her husband was introduced to the game by her sibling and got addicted to it.
This further led to quarrels within the family as he would play the game all night long and then would have trouble waking up in the morning, causing him to neglect his work and business.
She concluded her shocking story,
“It has been a month since he has left us. We are now left with no choice but to support ourselves through any hardship that may come. Before he started playing PUBG, his personality was much more tolerable.
However, the situation gradually grew worse from when he first started playing the game four years ago. Please pray that he will return to our family.”
If this game can make a father forget about his responsibilities towards his kids and a pregnant wife, then think what it could do to innocent young minds.
This is not the first time we have heard about the shocking effects of PUBG, also known as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Released in March 2018, the game quickly became an obsession that many institutions, colleges and schools are wary of.
According to a UNI report, there’s been a case of full-blown gaming addiction in India. It also talks about a fitness trainer in Jammu who reportedly began self-harming because of PUBG, and ended up in the hospital. Supposedly this is the sixth such case in Jammu.
Recently, Vellore Institute of Technology and Gujarat government issued notices banning the game in all primary schools.
