Just one thing, if one is playing a game just for fun and entertainment then it is not a big issue. Spending more hours playing PUBG rather than doing their work is a big problem. If one is feeling heroic by shooting some animated enemy then he or she is making fool of himself or herself. When one is not playing the game but still is thinking about the game then it is also not good.
