Tencent's Ma Huateng Says You Can't Ban Addicted Gamers

Ma Huateng, chief executive officer of Tencent, recently stated that the phenomenon of teenagers video game addiction should be prevented and treated. However, he believes outright banning of video games is not an appropriate approach, and more flexible management techniques should be considered. For example, linking daily tasks such as studying and homework directly to the length of time spent playing games. What do players think?

Player Comment 1: What do people who make games owe you? First you blame arcades, then you blamed Internet cafes, now you blame Kings of Glory. Outstanding people are still outstanding, if your family education program has problems, just take a page from videogames and blame your teammates.

Player Comment 2: In the past when there were no videogames, weren’t they all playing with mud, catching bugs, and being mischievous? How much did you smoke and drink in those days? How much does it matter? If you ban this, there will just be some other craze, how far will the bans go?

Player Comment 3: There’s reasons for self-control and family education! Parents and children are the same. We need a way for parents to get a good education! Teaching by example is more important than lectures! Stubbornly blaming children will only drive them further into gaming! Reflect on the way you teach your kids, and accept what you’ve learned by example from your own parents!
