Dota 2 and more games that are highly popular especially in the SEA region might in trouble as a Filipino Senate Aspirant campaigns against “violent” video games and wishes to replace them with educational ones.
Is Dota 2 in trouble?
So, a Filipino Senate aspirant Beth Lopez is campaigning against violent video games and cites them as a cause of not graduating or pursuing their studies and are overly addicted to video games, check out the Tweet below
“My plan to buy is educational games. For example, social studies games. So I call on the programmers of our country, make good for the people. Do it, game subjects. Thus, they are overnight in the internet cafe, not just playing but studying the lesson”.
This is an insanely uneducated opinion by Beth Lopez as it has been shown time and time again, that gaming doesn’t have anything to do with these kinds of issues, addiction can be of any form, and the medium isn’t always to be blamed, gamers will find a way to play these games regardless of the ban, but at what cost?
The eSports business is booming with highly rewarding tournaments, career, and opportunities for young gamers who want to pursue gaming as a career.
In other news, the official installation requirements for Red Dead Redemption 2 have been revealed, which you can read here.
While we’re certain that none of this won’t ever actually happen, it’s still sad to see how people who have no idea about the video game industry and the cultural impact it has, keep repeating the same uninformed things over and over again.
