When I’m free, I play PUBG, when I’m busy, I play PUBG.
These are not my words but the words that I overheard in the metro while coming to work. I too love playing this fabulous game, but hearing those words from college kids made me wonder, how badly this game is affecting our lives.
Without much thinking, I could figure out that there are sure to be one or other kind of problems in real life if you keep playing PUBG for too long. Here they are-
1. Extreme violence
Just like every other video game, PUBG is accused of being a violent game by many peoples. And because of this, the Chinese government has banned this game in their country. Excessive violence can trigger aggressive emotions, thoughts and behavior in the player and this will ultimately make him a less humane.
2. Video game addiction
Playing too much PUBG every day keeps you busy, which means you can not do anything productive during this time. Addiction to the video game is not a new thing. In UK addiction to video games has become the reason several divorces.
3. Less social interaction
I have already mentioned that video game addiction is a thing in which, you’ll be wasting your entire day and night just by playing PUBG. This will make it hard for you to find a girlfriend because for that you’ll need to go outside your house and interact with other people.
4. Bad physical health
Just sitting in one place is not good for your health and that’s something everyone knows. Sitting in front of your bright computer screen can also affect your eyesight, and you might get a headache that never seems to leave your body. Not just this, but you’ll also forget about the goals you were trying to achieve.
5. Bad mental health
In 2018, WHO concluded video gaming addiction as a mental disorder. Video games are known to be the reason for depression in many people. And people who are addicted to playing PUBG might get easily stressed out or face anxiety issues in public due to less social interaction.
6. Less sleep
There are two reasons behind this, the first one is that you might not feel like sleeping because the game isn’t over yet. Secondly, sitting for too long in front of the screen can make it hard for you to sleep even if you finally decide to go to bed. You have already lost the chances of having a girlfriend but having less sleep means you can’t even dream about your crush.
7. Less time to do anything else
If you are a player of PUBG, you know that a single game can take up-to half hours to get completed. And, I’m sure no one stops with the single match. Now calculate, if you are not addicted but still play 5 matches a day, you’ll be wasting two and a half hours every day, which you could have used to do something more productive (I think you know I mean from being productive).

8. Bad academics score
One of the most serious side-effects of playing excessive video games is the bad academics score. Video games are fun and studying is nothing but the pain in our ass (at least that’s what we think). Because of this students tend to like playing video games too much and in case of PUBG, the gaming sessions tend to last longer, which affect the academic score of students.
Playing too much PUBG can make you miss out on many things and can even mess up your life. So be careful, be cautious.
