PUBG in its full name actually means Player Unknown

Battlegrounds. Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) developed in 2017 as an online multiplayer battle royal game -only game that requires a constant connection to the internet. Each server can include up to 99 players. At the completion of each round, players gain in-game currency based on their performance.

In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed them self. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.

What is the game doing to us?

The World Health Organization has recognized excessive online gaming as a disorder among humans. Several incidents have been reported where PUBG seemed to be the prime angle of mental illness. Critics found out that while the game had not finished fully and had some technical flaws, it presented new types of game-play that could be easily approached by players of any skill level and was highly re-playable. Players with such high skills on the game could possibly even hack and obtain private information of other players.

Another concerned fact, is the frustration level after one loses leading to anger and depression. This dangerous game has led many to the hospital with an unstable mind. Most of the people playing PUBG are based in an imaginary world that has begun affecting their lifestyle and health.
