    12:22 Just so you all know. That game is so big, celebs were said to play it. They made a variety web show where they got top Chinese celebs kind of playing the game IRL like LARPing. And its also essentially the game that stated the 3 hr a week limit (there were restrictions coded into the game for young players). The news called it 王者农药 (basically Pesticide of Kings) as it was supposedly "killing" the populous (mostly mentally).

    well, I can see how countries with bad computers/no computers and poor internet quality somehow makes such games popular, but the western world mostly got the tech and income to run better games, thus kind of negates the need to play something that's bad. Why would I play a mobile rip-off of PUBG when I can just.. you know.. play PUBG? This makes me think that.. sure, there might be a market for it, but for us that isn't living on 10 dollars a day? We probably won't see a difference. And while the mobile gaming industry might be bigger in China, I know for a fact that people like me won't play them. Mobile games for us isn't something we try to be competetive at, for several reasons. It can hurt to hold a phone over a long time, the layout isn't customizable, the phone can overheat, your neck starts hurting after a while, the list goes on. There are just no reason for gamers that make an alright living to play on their phone when they have a console or pc at home. We can use it to skip time on the bus, or while we have our break at work, or when we excersize such as playing Pokemon GO or similar games. Other than that, there's just no reason to. Why choose a lesser, worse experience, when you have a better experience right in front of you? I just don't see it.
