Another Country Says No To Battle Royale Games!

Recently, Nepal, as well as a few regions in India, decided to ban PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (which we discussed, too – somehow they forgot Fortnite?), and now, another country follows their example.

The Thomson Reuters news agency reports that the Iraqi parliament has voted this week to ban both PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds AND Fortnite „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 youth.”

Moqtada al-Sadr, a Shi’ite cleric, who is also a leader of a political alliance that gained the most seats in last year’s parliamentary elections, said the following: „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.” He called for the ban, and he implored the children to especially stay away from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, as it causes addiction, and that it provides no benefits to their lives.

We can carve up another country to the banners’ list.
