Types of problems arising from gaming addiction.
« on: July 21, 2020, 11:10:56 AM »


1. Health issues: Long hours of gaming can increase the chances of obesity, weaken the muscles and joints, cause incorrect posture, weaken eyesight and even cause headaches.

2. Behavioural problems: Violent games like PUBG can trigger aggressive thoughts, emotions and behaviour affecting the mental well-being of the players. These can create long-term impressions on the minds of young children.

3. Failing social life: People gaming for long hours end up becoming less socially active. Being isolated, even if there is direct voice connection with friends in the game, is dangerous for our physical and mental health.

4. Disrupted sleep pattern: Spending long hours in front of the screen disrupt your sleep pattern and people may sleep less just to play the game.

5. Exposure to wrong values: Since children often try to emulate the same behaviour as portrayed in the games, exposure to excessive violence, profanity, racism, and many other aspects in games like PUBG can be harmful.

6. Academic performance hampered: Children may skip homework or studying for exams and choose to play video games.
