As we know, the Indian government has been working for a long time to try to fight and severely limit its dependence on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds: PUBG is very popular in India and millions of young boys seem to suffer from a high rate of addiction to the game.
This is, unfortunately, the case of a young 16-year-old resident of Hyderabad (South India): according to reports in the local media, the young man was now playing PUBG assiduously most of the time, neglecting studies, social relations, sports activities and rejecting any other activity that is not playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
In recent days, the boy’s mother scolded him, asking to devote himself more to his studies and to better prepare for the upcoming English exam he was supposed to have taken at school. The story, unfortunately, ended in tragedy, with the young man who took his own life after the reproach of the parent. The case generated considerable media hype in India, with the father of the boy who asked for a ban from PUBG , we recall that in some areas of the country the game was banned and the police have already arrested numerous people on charges of having violated the rules, trying to play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds despite being explicitly banned in many schools.
A not insignificant problem that has also affected China, where Tencent has banned access to PUBG to children under 13. In India, the company imposed a maximum limit of six hours of daily play, but apparently, this was not enough to prevent young Indians from developing a real addiction.
