Set aside an idea for Chinese youth for anyone who wants to snatch kids from consoles and phones for dinner, homework and real life. China has announced another measure to allow children to play online games with a new limit of just three hours a week. Platforms like Tencent can now offer children games only on Fridays, weekends and holidays from 8pm to 9pm.
Earlier this month, Tencent was forced to reduce the number of minors playing the hit mobile game Honor of Kings only one hour on weekdays and two hours on weekends.
Further tightening of the rules will not come as a surprise. Earlier last month, state news agencies published an editorial calling video games “moral opium,” explaining all the negative ways the game could affect China’s youth.
I can now imagine parents telling their children how to calculate the strict rules and blessings of the game in China. I can imagine that most children ignore them.
