  On the night when the "Notice" was released, many game companies told reporters that they would strictly abide by and actively implement the latest notices and requirements of the National Press and Publication Administration.

  Correspondingly, many domestic games have launched new measures to prevent addiction.

  At that time, Tencent also told reporters that in order to further increase protection, the original "zero-point inspection" was upgraded to "full-day inspection" from the pilots of "Glory of the King" and "Peace Elite", and all suspicious accounts were re-authenticated.

  When only one hour of online games was available on weekends, some children began to return to offline games. The scenes of children holding toy guns and sitting around playing cards reappeared on social media.

Many children choose to play stand-alone games or use some video sites to pass the time.

  In addition, there are reports citing the parents of their children as saying that the number of visitors to museums and libraries on weekends has increased significantly compared to before.

According to local media reports, the average daily reception volume of the Guangzhou Library increased by about 30% compared with August during the first weekend of anti-indulging in online games for minors.

  However, there are also some minors who choose to "vent their excess energy" on the ratings of online games.

  The reporter noticed that during this period, many online games were given 1 star in app stores and game platforms.

  However, this score was gradually raised again by the "escorting" adults.

In order to restore the game score to normal, many adult players have given 5 stars.
