Video games never go out of fashion, I think we can all agree on that. There has been a craze of various games like angry birds, subway surfer, Pokemon GO, candy crush and now PUBG.
People used play these games in a crowded train when they couldn’t even stand on one frigging leg properly. But again, every game wears out overtime and a new one is dropped in the market by some college student who was too bored to pay attention in their academic curriculum.
Although it becomes a great success for the founder, it also becomes the doom of hundreds of young kids out there who are hooked on their phones because of this game.
How PUBG Is Ruining The Indian youth?
This game has caused so much chaos both mentally and physically.
The game has officially been banned in Gujarat and is proposed to be banned in possibly all the states in this country.
- The basic reason for this is the fact that it is causing a major downfall in the academics.
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has absolutely made sure that this damned game is banned among the kids who can’t handle this addiction.
- They have completely lost the focus in studies and the overall result of the students compared to before the game was launched has decreased terribly and has affected students as well as parents in the worst possible way.
- Now comes the mental state of the young chaps as well as their parents. There are various psychological impact that one needs to lookout for if that individual or anyone around that individual seems to be addicted to this game.

The game has also casted lives of various young chaps and when this bar hit, it was for sure that the game has serious problems.
The violence in the game has turned the kids into these impatient and short tempered human beings who will snap real hard if you do anything against them and worse is that restrictions can lead to suicidal thoughts among these children.
