limitations already were in placePreviously, China had limited the length of time under-18s could play video games to 1.5 hours on any day and three hours on holidays under 2019 rules.
now they're even stricterThey limit under-18s to playing for one hour a day - 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. - on only Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, according to the Xinhua state news agency. They can also play for an hour, at the same time, on public holidays.
i wonder if they saw any actual improvement in school performance/other social areas, or in typical china fashion just said fuck dem kids
