China imposes the world's strictest limits on...


It is getting dangerously close to "game over" for young players in China as the country is tightening its reins on their allotted time for video games. Recently, the China National Press and Publication Administration (NPPA) released a notice on preventing minors from becoming addicted to online games.




If you are under 18 and a fan of video games, you will not be happy to hear this piece of news. Under the new rule, online gaming companies can only offer one hour of services to minors between 8 pm and 9 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, as well as on public holidays.


The rule, dubbed "the world's strictest limits on video games," aims to "curb video game addiction among children and effectively protect the physical and mental health of minors," an official from NPPA said at a press conference on August 30. Once the notice was announced, related topics on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging platform, racked up seven hundred millions views, winning overwhelming applause from Chinese parents who are tired of yelling at their own teenage children to quit playing miserable computer games and do more useful things.


"As a parent, I firmly support this rule. The minors need more guidance and supervision on online gaming as they have poorer self-discipline than the adults," one netizen commented. "It is a responsible decision for the government to save the children from indulging in virtual games," another added.
