Youngsters and adults in India are all over PUBG, this battle royale game has now become the most popular mobile game in the country.
However, some people don’t like the game as they believe it can cause addiction and danger to its players and other people. And they don’t hesitate to express their opinion.
Recently, twin brothers Ashish and Amar Vitthal from Sion Koliwada, Mumbai, are attempting to show people the dangers of playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds using Holika Dahan. The pair made an effigy of the game and planned to set it on fire yesterday.
The effigy illustrates the PUBG guy that features on every poster advertising for the game. The effigy also wears a level 3 helmet and is attached with a pistol. It appears that the effigy has been inspired by 'Uri: The Surgical Strike’ too considering the phrase that appears beneath the game’s name on the effigy.
Talking to ANI, Ashish said “It (PUBG) must be banned. Parents tell us children play PUBG all day. They appreciate us for the concept.”
In fact, it is likely that older adults are increasingly thinking that the game is dangerous. Amar claimed that through playing PUBG, people are becoming violent while children are losing attention in their study. That’s why they had the idea, they wanted to spread the social message widely, as per Amar’s statement.
The twins are not the only one to have this thought. This effigy is in line with the last month announcement from DCPCR, short for Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights, which called the PUBG a bad influence. Not only PUBG but also Pokemon, Plague Inc, Hitman, God of War, Grand Theft Auto, and Fortnite, have had a bad reputation for their impact on players.
DCPRC, at the time, stated that the game has too much vengeance, deceit, hate, and misogyny. The Commission has its point, both Hitman and GTA have all of these characteristics. However, the mentioned words are not entirely true about God of War because although the game is about violence and hate, it also tells the story of a man’s downfall from those and he never stops fighting against negative emotions.
Meanwhile, Plague Inc is just about the danger of a pandemic, the game is more educational than dangerous to society. And although Fortnite can be too toxic for children, it’s currently among the most cartoonish shooters.
