This game is criticized by many but played by all. I have seen people addicted to this game after a while. Despite this, people spend a lot of time on this game. Recently, there is news, people who play Pubg gets violent in behavior. Nepal has banned this game on concerns over children. Whereas, in India, people are spending a lot of money on subscriptions, paying for ranks, etc.

Obviously, parents are not happy with this game as it keeps occupies their children day and night. In this lockdown, people are advised to stay at home due to COVID 19. The changes in our lifestyle are less felt due to this online game as all are connected in this game across the globe. Players make their own squad or join clans and play matches together. Unlike other video games, Pubg has a feature of voice talk in the game which makes it more live and interesting to play.


Apart from Pubg, clash of clans, mini militia and others were also popular when launched. The engagement or participation of people is very huge. There are other games that are also popular like Ludo king, subway surfers, temple run, candy crush, and others such as car racing games.

It can cause stress, reduced immunity, hypertension, and others. Many cases are reported every year, and many are not but exists.

 If we can improve or save us from falling into such conditions is a blessing. It is recommended to play more and games such as football, cricket, badminton, etc to live a healthy lifestyle. Though, playing video games is not bad until it does not affect mental health.

Play video games but in a limit. You must not play video games for more than 2 hours a day. You must know what game management is.

Game management is very important for a healthy lifestyle and one must do.
