PlayerUnknown’s Battleground PUBG can take away your mental balance, which means you could self-harm, or harm others or turn hysterical and in turn become a patient of psychological diseases.
The game which acquired popularity recently saw a fitness trainer from Jammu land up in hospital. The fitness trainer who lost his mental balance is now undergoing psychological treatment at the hospital.
This is the sixth case in Jammu city itself.
‘PUBG’ is a game that’s popularity went up hugely after it introduced a mobile version.
The game also has constant updates and new features, and the player-base for the game is constantly increasing. This is enough to get anyone addicted to a game. But this could definitely backfire.
As per a report, a fitness trainer in Jammu started self-harming and then ended up in the hospital owing to his addiction to PUBG.
The fitness trainer allegedly got addicted to playing PUBG online over a span of just ten days. After completing one of the rounds, he started hitting himself with blows and was injured. This resulted in him being admitted to the hospital.
“The patient is unstable at the moment and has partially lost his mental balance,” a doctor treating him said. The doctor added that he was recognizing people. However, his mind was not very conscious and still under the influence of the ‘PUBG’ game.
Locals have also appealed to the Jammu and Kashmir Governor, Satya Pal Malik to get such “life-threatening” online games banned.
Pertinently China’s Online Gaming Ethics Review Committee last year in December has reviewed 20 games. These games contained “ethics risk” and nine of these games have been reportedly banned including “Fortnite” and “PUBG.” Also, corrective action has been proposed for the remaining 11.
