fortnite and pubg

A moment ago, Iraq’s parliament has voted and passed the motion on banning popular online games Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), citing their negative impacts on youth including addictive qualities.

Addiction and Violence in Fortnite and PUBG

The government and majority MPs approved a decision to bar online access to the aforementioned titles and ban related financial transactions, i.e., in-game transactions, season pass, etc.

From the report by Thomson Reuters, the ban came “due to the negative effects caused by some electronic games on the health, culture, and security of Iraqi society, including societal and moral threats to children and youngster”.

The leader of a political alliance and former head of the Mahdi Army militia, Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, initiated the ban request and beseeched youth and children to not play PUBG especially, quoting that it is addictive and not beneficial in any ways at all.

“What will you gain if you killed one or two people in PUBG? It is not a game for intelligence or a military game that provides you with the correct way to fight,” al-Sadr said in an official statement.
