Garena Free Fire

Garena Free Fire is a survival game – Fortnite and PUBG style – for mobile. In this action game, you will have to survive against 49 other players to win the game. As in Fortnite, you have to parachute out and choose your starting point on a map that will get smaller and smaller. Grab weapons and drive vehicles like in Player Unknown’s BattleGrounds (PUBG) to cross the map and kill your enemies before they kill you!.So, how do I deal with my kids who is addicted to playing the Free Fire game? How do I help them get rid of this?

WHAT PARENTS SHOULD KNOW

Parents should know that Garena Free Fire is a freemium multiplayer shooter for iOS and Android devices. The goal of the game is to kill other players until you are the last man or woman alive. There is no scenario or fantasy science fiction around the gameplay; you simply shoot other humans in a real environment and collect rewards for doing so. The violence is realistic, so injured players bleed and fall dead when shot. Some female players are sexualized (as a sexy nurse, sexy schoolgirl, etc.) and wear revealing outfits. Players communicate via text and voice chat, and can create lists of friends and join or create guilds. Consumerism here is high; when logged in, multiple screens appear inviting players to buy things, and the application’s menus constantly encourage players to buy virtual currency to spend on costumes, weapons, pets and extra characters. Players are assigned ‘missions’ to buy from the online store, and players are encouraged to spend money to play mini-games. Read the developer’s privacy policy for more details on how your information (or your children’s) is collected, used and shared and all the choices you may have in this regard, and note that privacy policies and terms of service change frequently.

As in other Battle Royale games, players should outlive their comrades, but there’s nothing new to discover in this game – unless you plan to be harassed for buying things. Once Garena Free Fire starts, you (and up to three of your friends) will battle strangers, do your best to equip yourself and position yourself to win. Success depends as much on avoidance as it does on confrontation, as shooting guns is a sure way to die early. But you also have the timer countdown and the safety zone narrowed to keep things from becoming static, making players more desperate and things more dangerous. (An occasional lag makes things particularly dangerous.) Fortunately, the app’s controls are simple and well-designed, making it easy to run, shoot, drive and use objects. It (almost) compensates for the overall ugliness of the game, with its terrain and buildings covered in low-resolution gray and beige textures. Still, if you can ignore the lack of style, there’s a certain excitement to be had and something undeniably satisfying about being the last player standing.

That said, this is not a game for young players. The violence is not presented in any fancy packaging here; it realistically shows that humans are slaughtered, bleed and die in the context of arena sport. Moreover, the application really pushes the purchase. From the second you log in, you’re hit with a barrage of ads for various items built into the app, so the temptation to spend money on vanity items such as clothes, hairstyles, pets, characters and emotes is huge. (The app even goes so far as to call up gameplay missions for certain purchases). If that’s not enough to sideline parents, the app’s friend system allows strangers to interact and communicate directly with each other. As a result, Garena Free Fire is not worth the download for players involved in other Battle Royale games. If you are new to this type of game and are over 18 years old and are comfortable with realistic attacks against humans for sport, this is not a bad introduction to the genre.

TELL YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT…

1) Don’t easily give in to your son’s demands and give away the mobile to play. It may hurt him at first, but over time they will get used to it.

2) When you are at home with your son, use a phone at the very least because your son will copy our actions and if we use the phone more in front of him, he will also follow suit.

3) When you give the mobile phone to your son, make sure to disable WIFI or mobile data and delete all offline videos. This may make them angry once or twice, but over time they will learn not to use the mobile phone.

4) Involve your son in other physical activities that don’t require watching a mobile screen, such as playing a puzzle or other outdoor games. This will keep children away from the mobile and bring them closer to other activities.

5) Give your son a set of toys so he can take care of them and forget about everything else. Since children tend to like to play with toys.

Hope this helps
