Recently, at the opening ceremony of China Metrology University’s Class of 2022, President Xu Jiangrong gave a speech in which he offered three pieces of advice for students, one of which was that online games are the biggest campus drug, and 90% of students who are disqualified from school each year are not worthy of sympathy because of the games.
In this regard, netizens questioned the source of the data “90%” and teased: “99% of the people who drop out of school eat rice, so it is prohibited to eat rice instead.” “Also ‘measurement university’, do not know that correlation does not mean causality.”
Zhihu also appeared “How do you think about this data?” Epic GameStop’s response received 12,000 likes.
Epic Game Store said: “To be honest, I’m not sure how the “because” of “90% because of the game” is deduced. There is no scientific proof and arbitrarily set up a conclusion, it is too unscientific. This kind of article has been slightly numb, as a practitioner, shame has been covered by my thick skin, and even the corners of my mouth raised a smile.”
He added: “I’m grateful that I believe that the industry I work in – whether your life is a success or a failure – we have brought you joy.”
To the statement that games are drugs, Epic GameStop replied, “I think the great pressure of life is probably the biggest drug of all, after all, it can actually steal all the users from the hands of the “drug” of games.”
