PUBG is one of the most-watched battle-royale games on Twitch. The young generation is playing it every day. Everyone loves to play it. Celebrities, Youtubers, college and school students all are playing it.
If you don’t know what PubG is. You must be not living on this planet. This is a multi-player online shooter game that allow for solo or team play and subscribes to the battle royale format, which drops 100 players at a time into an enclosed space where they must scavenge for weapons, medical supplies and other resources in an effort to be the last player standing and getting “Chicken dinner”. Yes, that’s what a winning team is called in PubG the “winner winner chicken dinner”. Let’s see how PubG affects you in real life?
PubG game has both good effect and side effects or negative side effects on health, education, career on people’s life. Are there can be many benefits to playing PubG as well? How does it affect our minds positively or negatively?
The Positive Effect of the PubG
Many scientists and psychologists find that video games can have many benefits – the main one is making people smart. “Video games change your brain,” according to the University of Wisconsin psychologist C. Shawn Green. Playing games alter the brain’s physiological structure in the same manner as do learning to read, navigating using a map, or playing the piano. Much like exercise can build muscle, the effective combination of concentration and rewarding surges of neurotransmitters like dopamine strengthen neural circuits which can build the brain.
The Negative Effects of PubG
Most of the bad effects of video games are blamed on the violence they contain. That’s what people say about PubG as well. Children who play more violent video games are more likely to have increased aggressive thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and decreased helping others.
People can be addicted to video gaming. The WHO in 2018 declared gaming addiction as a mental health disorder. Addiction to video games increases their depression and anxiety levels.
I also played this game for a few days. And my personal experience is- PubG is a very addictive game. You can’t get asleep while playing this. You spend or waste a hell a lot of time on PubG. And also, you not only spend your time on playing but also on watching others on streaming channel and youtube. I also faced a kind of heaviness when I started playing because of too much concentration it needs. But, later on, this got resolved. Don’t know about others, but I love this game until and unless this is a huge addiction.
- These days many news coming out regarding PUBG like The teenager jumped to his death from his uncle’s fourth-floor flat in east China.
- A single game takes around half an hour and yes, you can not stop at one game. So, this is a time-consuming game.
- Also, I have noticed one of my friends complaining of vertigo, weakness, and flickering in front of eyes after he became addicted to this.
- What I suggest is Just don’t make this battleground game your addiction.
