Addiction | One time there was a time for Addiction of Kingdoms, then came Addiction to Women, Addiction of Power, Alcohols & now Time also introduced us with Addiction to Digital Games. Digital & Online Video Games have become very popular, at the same time can be very addictive & are very competitive. But to think of a game Destroying People’s Lives is quite the concept coming from out of the world but indeed coming real now.

!!!…Fortnite Caused Over 200 Divorces…!!!

To be able to Wreck Relationships is indeed bizarre. Fortnite is one such game that has been gaining traction worldwide for its features, streaming, competitiveness & popularity. However, this game has been cited as one of the main reasons for divorce among many couples in the UK. According to Divorce-Online, Fortnite has been listed as a reason for divorce in over 200 cases. Other than Fortnite, the other addictions that were listed are Social Media, Games, and Porn. “These numbers equate to roughly 5 per cent of the 4,665 petitions we have handled since the beginning of the year and as one of the largest filers of divorce petitions in the UK is a pretty good indicator,” Divorce-Online reported.

The spokesperson from the firm added, “Addiction to drugs, alcohol, and gambling have often been cited as reasons for relationship breakdowns but the dawn of the digital revolution has introduced new addictions. These now include online gaming and social media, so it is no surprise to us that more and more people are having relationship problems because of our digital addictions.”

!!!…Delhi Teen Murdered Family Addicted With PUBG…!!!

A 19-year-old, who was arrested for allegedly killing his parents and sister, was addicted to online battle game PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds). Suraj alias Sarnam Verma killed his father Mithilesh, mother Siya and sister in the early hours of Wednesday and later ransacked the house to make it look like a case of robbery. He was arrested the same evening. While family members told police that they found Suraj to be a “quiet and nice” fellow, his neighbours said there were frequent quarrels in the family over his behaviour. He felt he failed his Boards since his father had asked him to supervise the construction of their house.

He was upset about being blamed. Suraj’s father later got him admission to a private college in Gurgaon for a diploma in civil engineering. Prior to the murder, he behaved normally and even saw photo albums with his parents till midnight. He woke up at 3 am and first stabbed his father multiple times. He also stabbed his mother when she tried to raise an alarm. He then went to his sister’s room and stabbed her in the neck. His mother came there and tried to save her daughter but he stabbed her and even stabbed his sister in the stomach, police added.

Suraj then ransacked the house and washed off his fingerprints from the knife and then alerted his neighbours. After being taken into custody, police said the accused showed no signs of remorse but kept saying, ‘please save me from the law’. Suraj’s family was cremated today but his relatives did not request the court to allow Suraj to complete the last rites. Mithilesh’s brother and nephew carried out the last rites.


To be honest, if this is the consequence of playing Video Games, then it’s obvious that parents will prohibit their child from going even close to Video Games. But we all need to understand that it’s not the game which is causing these deadly cases. This is the lack of good relation and communication between the relations which causes such a devastating gap, & gradually that gap gets filled with evil. Since Video Games are the most popular free time fillers & also time wasters in today’s world that’s why everyone is blaming that source. But if there won’t be video games then there will be something else to generate the same outcome within no matter of time.

If there is this side of tragedies created by getting influenced by Video Games, then there are also hundreds & even thousands of cases where Video Gaming is a proper source of Income for many people. It has also been taken as one of the best ways of refreshment and entertainment for a huge majority of people, & obviously there is no tragedy in those cases, instead, those cases are building thousands of good relations all over the world. So to actually prevent it from happening and bring it back to a healthy state we need proper education, relation care & guidance. Fear is something which surely dominates over people’s brain for some time, but when the time will come and the eruption will occur, no amount of fear will be able to avoid it. So what we need is the power of Love and Care to tackle a situation like this & make our society a healthy place to live. Everyone can spread hatred, but the only thing which matters is are we able to dominate that with Love & Care.
