Broadcast journalist Raffy Tulfo believes the Philippine government should conduct a study, and even ban, the addictive gaming hit known as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
Earlier this month, Tulfo featured a couple on his public affairs show Wanted sa Radyo, with the wife accusing her husband of domestic abuse. The cause of the broken relationship? The wife was apparently so addicted to Mobile Legends that the husband thought he needed to knock some sense into her.
After the couple aired their sides of the story, Tulfo weighed in on the mobile game. He acknowledged that the game could bring joy and even fortune to a lucky few. But then he also heard accounts of depression, suicides, and ill-effects on the gamers’ physical health and relationships brought by Mobile Legends addiction.
You can watch the video on Tulfo’s YouTube channel. It ends with Tulfo saying that the government needs to study the effects of Mobile Legends on its players.
