I love when people blame gaming on irresponsible parenting. Just points out all the assholes who don't know how to actually control/parent their children. Their kids aren't "addicted" to games, they're just being ignored by the people responsible for them because parents are too busy posting crap on Facebook 😂😂😂

why prince harry dont ban alcohol.... thats responsible for much more harm to society than video games and possibly makes less money for the economy if you factor in costs as a result of alcoholism and the costs associated with alcohol related crimes and "accidents". maybe someone can look into the stats, but from a harm standpoint alcohol is waaaay worse

He's got a point, there is no good that can come from it being in your home, unless you or your kid is a YouTuber and can make bank from it!! And I think we all know, with a game like Fortnite, it really IS created to addict, I've even heard the colors used are used to further possible addiction to the game, and I heard that back in 2017!!

Video games can be addictive, especially now with the Live Services game style that incourages concurrent spending and is meant to keep players coming back for more. The industry is trying to make it so games aren't just a short time hobby.

Many games are the reason I became so good at maths and history. And they have been monumentally helpful to my creative side. However the games where addiction is a risk because the game was literally made to be addictive should be outed and warned about. Way too many people lump all online or multiplayer games into this category but that's not fair. Many people use these games to socialise and it is yet again helpful to play these. But is is always the online ones that are the addictive ones, thus the confusion. Addictive games where the player can resist gambling for lootboxes, and instead goes for teh grind, becomes addictive for the same reason, the reward. Rewards that are often limited. You feel obligated to play to get these things. Or even WoW with a monthly subscription can make players feel obligated to play. That game saw the first epidemic of gamer addiction. It was unheard of before WoW. These games are first, shit games, but secondly they are bad for you. And they should 100% be avoided. Fortnite is a modern day moneygrabbing piece of garbage that is incredibly addictive be design and should not be played by anyone. Prince Harry has nothing to apologise for, he's just speaking the truth. Such bad games have been normalised and they target children. It's bad. It's not as bad as drugs though... That was a stupid thing for him to say. Also some drugs are normalised but still very harmful, like alcohol and nicotine which are many multitudes more harmful than marijuana. The Prince seems to not realise this, and downplaying this problem is not helpful. But in the end. Fortnite is bad. It's a bad game, and it's bad for your health. This is a fact. Keep your children away from it. Give them real games, like the original Mario series. Oh and "Social Media Addiction" is utter bullshit. This is what the old people used to call "Talking". Idiots that are too ignorant to understand that, whilst posting this on social media, they deserve redicule.

In my opinion I think the borders should be military protected. We have weak borders. Our borders are too weak for how bad our rep is in the world. We are one of the most hated countries in the world and most places you can just walk/swim in... Safety should be our priority right now we have been on the offense for so long! We need to chillin on fighting certain fights,we should be using our military budget towards saftey and defense.

The real danger of fortnite is it's manipulative use of FOMO and other psychological tricks that children are extra susceptible to in order to drain the player's wallets in what is marketed as a free game. Folding Ideas has a great video on this. Warframe has the best free to play model in my opinion.

Look Harry, big H, p dog. This same shit happens with all types of entertainment, I've seen people marathon movies and shows, I've seen people spend an entire day painting miniatures, and there were always those kids in school that read a different book everyday. It's up to people to decide how much time they put into their hobbies regardless of any worth you may see in them. Would have thought you lot would have gotten the message that your opinions don't hold universal value when they turned your crown into a decoration, but hey that's none of my business.

Trump threatening to close the border wall, saying it would be "so easy", and then flipping on his decision: how unsurprising. it's all a talking point for his pep rallies. clearly he is using the border as a punching bag. he won't do anything before the election, because there isn't any plan for it in the first place.

Any entertainment can be addictive, it's up to parents to regulate how much time they spend on it. My issue is the pay structure and how they basically trick kids into needing useless items(eg skins) and only give them a limited time to buy it with a countdown timer, making them think they are missing out. I'm sick of arguing with my nephew about how it's a waste of money and he will never be getting a cent towards it. Kids don't notice the deceiving pay structure or lack of value. Also, the fact it's a 6/10 game at most but is somehow the most popular in the world is a bit irritating(kids I understand, but ppl over 16 that play it?). It's a sad reflection of society, and is very common in the music industry as well. Marketing and promotion are more important than the actual product sigh

As someone who plays video games almost daily, Prince Harry makes a good point. Video games need to be consumed in moderation, however what really needs to be observed are the causes of video game addiction. Personally, it was depression, social anxiety, and a severe lack in self-confidence. The only time where I felt confident was with games. This resulted in a spiral of irresponsibility, horrible time management, and the neglecting of friends, family, school, work, etc. I'm better now thanks to therapy, strategies for time management, long talks with those closest to me, etc. So video games are not bad. In fact, I love games! But what needs to be scrutinized is regulation of games IN THE HOUSEHOLD and moderation when consuming this kind of media. Video games are not like drugs and alcohol, and thus the subject needs to be approached appropriately when confronting addiction. Usually, the kids don't just show up on your doorstep broken because of video games, they've been breaking for a long time now and one of the ways they're trying to keep it together is by playing games.The responsibility to regulate their child's consumption of media and gaming falls on the parents/guardians, NOT the businesses. The businesses are only developing and producing according to supply and demand. Whether or not a child buys/plays the game falls solely on the parents.

Online play is the issue. Ive gamed for over 20 years. Multiple online games such as wow, ff, even everquest. It creates a fake world. People you have never met. Grinding for days and feeling its a worthwhile time sink. It creates a different reality... a easier one. "Friends" you have never met become more important than your rl friends or family. People dropping thousands, and thousands or dollars on buy to win games. Its broken...makes you feel like your doing something worthwhile.... not fun mind you. Im gear score xx on this new game... wow man, thats amazing. Who cares 5 years later ? Pretty much noone. Hundreds of hours sitting in a chair in a digital world for momentary fame.

Electronics can certainly be addictive (not only gaming, but electronics usage in general with social media and the like), but I really only see a danger when it negatively affects self-image or functioning in society/taking care of personal matters and when there's incorporation of miscro-purchases and "gambling" with loot boxes.

Video games can definitely become addictive. About 10 years ago at this point, my brother went to Iraq and when he came back months later for a short r&r my ex sister-in-law was only playing video games. She didn’t take out the trash, she didn’t clean up what they had for breakfast the day he left, their daughter was smaller than she should have been for her age and her hair was dyed pink because she had slept in kool aid for so long. My brother said he was taking their daughter to my mom’s house (3 states away) and she said “as long as I get the Xbox”

If you cite Video Game addiction as the reason your relationship ended you should also take time to consider WHY your spouse was addicted to that game. Was it stressful work life? Deaths in the family? Or was it you? Because something made normal life too hard to cope with for that person.

I still don't get the whole Pewdiepie is a white supremacist thing. The only thing he does is joking around, and yes, satire is also a form of humor. But people these day's, you really need to watch what you're saying, because every word that comes out of your mouth or that you typed, will always be used against you these days. If only people could leave each other just alone. Giving an opinion is a crime now. It really sucks! But, here is my opinion, i don't have anything against Pewdiepie and i even subscribed to him in the past just to support him. I don't even watch all of his content. Though, i wanted to support him, because i can't stand what the media has done to him.

Prince Harry should shut the hell up, he's out of his element. First, there's ZERO proof fake "violent" video games like Fortnite "cause" any change in behavior, whether that be violent behavior, aggressive behavior, or addictive behavior. Second, where exactly are kids supposed to play outside when there's no place to play outside besides rural areas because of urban sprawl and mainstream news media creating fear of neighbors/fellow man.

Here's the thing with games trying to keep kids in front of them as much as possible. Kids will have so much time alotted to them by there parents. As I did when I was a kid. At least that's how it should be. The games goal is to ensure that all that time is their time. The more invested you are into a particular game the more likely you are to spend money on only that game. Imagine a kid playing half and half, League of Legends and Fornite. Kid gets $20 for his birthday, $10 goes to one, $10 to the other. Now imagine one game is very captivating and the kid see it best to spend all his time in one game. He gets money, and there's only one logical place to spend it. The game he plays the most. If you are worried about the amount of time a kid is spending gaming, reduce their gaming time. If you are worried about how kids a lot their times to game, fuck you. It's their time. They have X amount of hours that are theirs in the day where no one tells them what to do. Let them choose how to spend it. My bias here, if your kid is playing Fortnite start buying every possible game you can that's not Fortnite. Fortnite is a terrible game. Eventually they'll realize there are better game concepts than land kill die repeat. There are stories out there and challenges designed to be difficult but achievable. That bullshit PvP hope you are the biggest no life on the map is a bait.

I believe social media is addictive but as long as it's not to the detriment of the user then it being addictive is fine. I think it's more about finding where that line really is where that addiction starts affecting your life negatively. I think it's human nature when we find something we enjoy we are simply going to keep going back to that activity, regardless of if it's gaming, or gambling, ect.

I think people just hear the word 'ban' and they react without thinking. I don't think Prince Harry is totally wrong and I think of my own childhood as an example... I didn't play my first video game until I was 11 years old (I distinctly remember it because I so badly wanted to be able to play) and that was a single-player game, X Wing vs Tie-Fighter. As I got a bit older, I got a bit more into games and had more opportunities to play them, eventually seeing my first online game with SWG. I don't think I was more than 13-14 back then. My exposure to it didn't last long, but I think it was too soon for me. It didn't take long, even with very little play time, to feel obsessed with that game. Part of it was arguably just the quality of the game, but I think there's something extra in online games that tends to make them more compelling because you feel that tug to be involved with other players; especially if you didn't have much of a social life prior to playing it. Online games would later become a significant part of my life, sometimes for years at a time. I even helped run a guild in one for a couple of years. And it wasn't a 'bad' thing, but it was something that largely compensated for me not having much of a social life in RL. And this here is where I think games like Fortnite are most dangerous. If a kid is already struggling socially and you put something like that in front of them, it can act as a sort of compensatory mechanism that they will become obsessed with because they aren't getting their social needs fulfilled elsewhere. If you fill that social gap and get them involved in RL communities, they probably won't feel the same tug to obsess over the game (or their obsession will be more balanced, at least). What Prince Harry is missing is why kids would become obsessed with a game like Fortnite or any game for that matter, and I think the answer is obvious; it's the same reason they go for any other form of distraction obsessively. They have needs that aren't getting met and it's a way to avoid thinking about the pain. What the focus should be on is not Fortnite or games as a whole, but on what's missing in these kids' lives. It's healthy to enjoy games and play them recreationally, but if someone is obsessed with them to the point of neglecting their RL, ask what it is they're missing, not how you can ban the thing that is keeping them sane.

I do believe that video games can be addictive, but claiming that they're more dangerous than drugs is just blatantly false.

I lived more in game worlds than the real world for years. It can most definitely be addicting. I had two thousand hours into Star Wars Galaxies alone. That's 83 cumulative days. Shit's unhealthy.

Honestly, while the Cancel Pewdiepie petition is so irrational and stupid I really wouldn’t mind at all if Pewdiepie got removed from YouTube. He doesn’t make actual content, he just takes from other people and his undeserved fanbase just eats it up and thinks he’s the best but he just does the same thing every single damn video.

Honestly, Im frustrated with Pewdiepie in terms of the mosque shooting. I know it was not his fault in any sense, but I feel like he doesn't do enough to condemn white supremecy. Yes, he says he disagrees in his videos, but I think there should be an individual video were he is completely focused on white supremecy, or if he does a public act to upset them. Right now, it seems like he isn't doing a whole lot to get them off his channel because he knows the make up a big chunk of his revenue.
