Video game creators are creating games to keep players on longer but is it creating a problem?

One of the most-popular games taking the country by storm has been Fortnite and it’s Battle Royale mode. The game has become so popular players are spending hundreds of hours and even hiring coaches.

Psychologists say one aspect of the game that keeps players coming back is the social nature of the game. But if games are being played daily for 4-6 hours, then it could signify a problem.

Parents are advised to keep their children on a structured schedule that creates balance instead of opening children up for the potential of gaming addiction.
