Deaths are one of the most common things when you are playing a video game. As gamers, we have killed many villains and blasted off many galaxies. Whatever we do in a game is acceptable and is allowed. But sometimes these games can become the cause of deaths of real people in real lives.

Many times we hear about different problems caused due to the addiction of video games like the end of relationships, no social life, obsession, and much more.
