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.

  1. nglilipana na mga alagad ni satan, eto ung tinatawag na panahon na ng paghahanda para sa mga nglilipana na mga anti christ sa mundo. nkasulat lahat sa bibliya ang mga babala gaya nito. kailangan ng ibayong pananampalataya para malabanan at mapuksa ang mga ganitong kasamang mga laro ng kabataan. sinisira ang buhay ng bawat kabataan resulta ng pgkawasak ng kinabukasan pagkasira ng relasyon sa pamilya at marami pang ibang negatibong bagay.

  2. Tama i ban talaga ang ML nayan kasi laro ng demonyo yan kung papansinin nyu nagiging bastos at palamura na ang mga kabataan nagiging bobo na sa bahay kasi laro lang inaatupag, nagegets ko naman na d kasalanan ng game yan o ni moonton yan pero pansinin nyu din ang inpluwensya nyan sa society, eh ano kung may chooks ano kung may dogie ano kung may hypebit ano kung may MLBB payan bakit kahit sabihin mo success sila bakit lahat ba ng tao yayaman sa ml?? Mas madami damage kaysa benefits sa society ang dulot ng ml kay yung mga nagsasabing isip isip naman eh kayu mismu mag isip isip kasi nadedemonyo na kayu sa laro nayan mag basa kayu ng bible para marealize nyu ang dulot ng game nayan

  3. pres Duterte please ban mobile legends it is developed to cause psychological addiction to people who don’t have self control and people struggling with harshness of life they look for escape rather than facing Thier problems mobileledends take that oppurtunity draining people’s resources and shiny rewards tournament to kill time
    .

  4. I agree! Mobile Legends should be banned from the Philippines! It’s a shame to play a game made by blatantly copying every single thing Riot! is trying to offer but then have a thick face to say that,”…We didn’t know League of Legends, everything in Mobile Legends is ‘original’.”

  5. It must be banned permanently not only in the Philippines but also in other countries. This online game makes people addicted into it to the extent that they don’t know how to manage and limit their time and know their priorities and even their responsibility to their own family 😤😡

  6. Storbo sa online class, nagiging tamad na mga kabataan, naglaho na talents at passion nila. Nangungupit pa minsan ng pera maipaload lng para mkapaglaro kasi mahina ang wifi at correct me if im wrong halos lahat naglalaro naging tamad sa umaga kasi madaling araw na natutulog.
    Sana e ban nlng ng gobyerno.

  7. I think it should be Banned in the Philippines.. its not useful , it become addicting ..and waste of time and load at the same time….as i observed marami na ang nagiging tamad sa games na yan.
