With gamification, game creators and game developers can shape user behaviour of gamers that they become addicted.

The sample size is 15 respondent using purposive sampling technique. The results show that most gamers are between 16-32 years old because almost all the games have a high level of difficulty which is so challenging and hard indeed for people below 16 and above 32 years old and PUBG game has various techniques of gamification that influence how the gamers want to keep playing.
