According to a survey by the National Bureau of Statistics, more than 30% of people in the UK felt lonely during the quarantine. In the 16-24 age group, the proportion is nearly 51%.
The “Play & Talk” weekend event hopes that everyone can chat with friends and family online to reduce loneliness. The British Interactive Entertainment Association said that during the epidemic, they observed that people around the world began to socialize through games and play with friends and family. In a friendly and relaxed environment like games, it is easier for everyone to open their hearts, and this way is also safe.
The “Play & Talk” campaign was supported by more than 50 game companies, including Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Sega, 2K, Wargaming, etc.
The basic idea of “Play & Talk” is to choose some family games, call family or friends on Saturday or Sunday, and spend an hour together in the game, the plan starts this weekend.
