Online gaming addiction is claiming lives rapidly. Artificial intelligence games and challenges that force a participant to go to its very end are having a drastic impact on them. 

 

Youth especially children and teenagers are glued to their mobile screens instead of their academic material. Starting from less harmful gaming apps like Candy Crush, Subway Surfers to more mobile games like Pokemon Go,  Blue Whale Challenge, MOMO Challenge and now PUBG- have taken over the world.
 
These games provide millennials an escape from their daily life problems. So much so that they get trapped in their fantasy world only. The Blue Whale Challenge required people to draw a whale on their hands with blood and commit suicide in the end. The participant is led to believe that if he/she doesn’t commit suicide then their family can be harmed or their lives will be made hell.
 
Therefore, it was considered necessary to block any such gaming culture that might lead to irrevocable consequences. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds popularly called PUBG has now ventured into the gaming world and anyone who is remotely social would know that it is driving the youth crazy since its release in March 2018.
 
Last month, Google released its annual list of Android’s best applications and games of 2018 and obviously PUBG Mobile took home the award in the ‘Best Game’, ‘Most Competitive Title' and 'Fan Favorite' categories.
