PubG: Glorification of violence in media.

PubG is a multiplayer video game where 100 players are deployed on an Island, and the last player standing wins. It's the survival of the fittest and is just one of the many popular games considered "normal" among the children of Gen Z.

The viewership of violence, primarily that depicted through these games is so readily available and not regulated. A study conducted in the U.S. showed that 63 percent of kids involved in school shootings depict behaviors of craving violence through media.

The glorification of violence through video games targeted at young children has desensitized violence, while also contributing to the neglect by authorities and adults of society.

I do not mean in any way that watching or engaging in violence in media is equivalent to actually doing it, however, it still does not mean that the person consuming it hasn't been affected mentally. Someone somewhere is going through something that might be affecting his mental state, where content like this if consumed could lead to detrimental circumstances acting as a nail in the coffin.

We need measures to increase awareness and parental training so that the youth is not susceptible to such content at a very young age. Total prevention may never be possible in such a technologically advanced time, but we as individuals can opt to be more responsible and conscious of such content which may be influential in adverse ways.
