https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-47813894 Prince Harry has called for a ban on Fortnite, saying the survival game beloved by teenagers around the world, was "created to addict". His words add to a growing debate among health workers, governments and lobby groups about whether gaming can be harmful to health. The remarks come just before the Gaming Bafta Awards, one of the biggest nights in the UK's gaming calendar, which take place in London on Thursday evening. But is he right? What did Prince Harry say? At an event at a YMCA in west London, the Duke of Sussex launched a scathing attack on social media and gaming. Of Fortnite, he said: "That game shouldn't be allowed. Where is the benefit of having it in your household? "It's created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It's so irresponsible. "It's like waiting for the damage to be done and kids turning up on your doorsteps and families being broken down." He added that social media was "more addictive than alcohol and drugs".
