Students should not be allowed to play PUBG
The game significantly interferes with a person’s studies. Teenagers who should be studying are wasting their time playing this game. As a result, studies are neglected, and concentration levels are low. This is because their brain activity is slowed as a result of their PUBG mobile game addiction.
Computer science is a very complicated subject. A student playing games on their laptop and a student playing games on their mobile phone are likely to suffer the same results. Therefore, computers should be used only for serious school work.
Students should not be allowed to play PUBG or Fortnite, not because they are part of the Defense of the Ancients community, but because of their popularity and the real-world impact it could have on teenagers.
There is a natural battle royale game mode, where a large number of players are thrown into a building where only one can live. In many ways, PUBG and Fortnite is a battle royale game mode taken to the next level. Both games can be played in non-battle royale modes, but as soon as a player dies they are automatically booted out.
While there are a great many players of these games and many have managed to “win” with the highest number of kills, the game can’t be played without watching a player die or watching them win. It is extremely common to see players aggressively flail their arms in anger as the sole survivor walks into the water. The game is constantly triggered as soon as one player dies. While the game in itself is not harmful to children, the nature of the game and the popularity of it with children means that the game could have a serious negative impact on their minds.
According to Fortune, many adolescents have begun to indulge in extreme lifestyles because of video games. Teens spend too much time gaming and not enough time on doing the things they are told to do, such as studying. Children lose interest in their schoolwork, and thus neglect their studies and are subjected to failure. Another common occurrence is that teens are unable to communicate in a verbal manner because they are always in a game and have difficulty replying to a response they have made in an attempt to complete a task.
Fortnite has been found to have an effect on children who have had previous psychological problems, and even suicidal thoughts. Children who begin to show suicidal tendencies or have previously tried to commit suicide are more likely to continue playing the game. Fortnite’s addictiveness has led to some very real consequences, and the game should not be played by anyone who is currently not in school.
Exploiting children’s creativity, skills, and affection for video games is not a worthwhile reason for allowing them to play a video game. One student, who is a rising junior, states that Fortnite “is way more time-consuming and does not really have a life outside of it.”
Teenagers should not be allowed to play video games of any kind. More specifically, they should not be allowed to play online video games unless there is a high school aged staff member present.
The advice comes after police arrested two Fort Myers teenagers for allegedly taking part in the highly-disturbing online pedophile ring.
While Florida law bans anyone under the age of 18 from registering for online gaming, including Zynga’s free-to-play social gaming network, virtual pederasty continues to go down the hole of the dark net, the global network of dark web websites, chat rooms, and websites.
That network is operated through regular web browsers, making it difficult for law enforcement to search and prosecute. This creates a nasty loophole, which seems to be getting more dangerous by the day.
