    I Think the man was Mad he tooked serious to the Game.
    PUBG is Nothing
    PARENTS ARE all Things
    But he played a game for 24 hours even if he had done another work for 24 hours then their would be a same result.I will say a thing
    Gaming is not crime. But not take it serious it will not gave you anything
    Esports is not the future of games e.g because in the millions of players have registered in PMPC Official tournament. But only hundreds are qualified.Now a days Schools,etc are closed its why students are using Mobile all the day.Its Wrong Please Play games use mobile but not All day PUBG is the game not life so please understand

    Brother you are right but the nature of every individual is different. Like cricket is an enjoyable game but it is not recommended for older people or those people who are emotional. The view of everyone is different from each other. The man was very emotionally attached to the game and he was very emotional type. that’s why he took everything serious. It is the responsibilities if parents to make a time table for studies mobile gaming and physical gaming for their children. And ensure that they play physical game 2-3 hours daily and with mobile gaming. Mobile gaming is not bad but time table is required. maximum 2-3 hours
