Mobile Gaming

By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos may understand the mobile gaming industry but he admits that he is not keen on playing with it. Games are like digital books that people can learn from. It is understandable that parents can be worried about children spending too much time on them. However, if they know the values of those video games, they would rethink their views otherwise. The key is in the physical and mental balance. If a gamer retains a healthy lifestyle despite the passion for gaming, then it’s a win-win situation. Some Senators may want to eliminate MP or Multiplayer games but it would be hard because of the strong public patronage.

Responding to Comments

Here are just a few of the many really interesting, smart, provocative comments you’ve sent! Keep them coming, Marcos urges his fans on his vlogs.

The Achievements of Former President Ferdinand Marcos

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos also said to Francis Ian Q. Meneses that humility aside, the late President Ferdinand Marcos has lots of achievements that it is difficult for him to feature all the good works of his father on his video blog. It is known that the intentions of the older Marcos were laudable. To improve the economy by increasing agricultural productivity and to dismantle the oligarchy that had dominated the nation were his priorities. His greatest achievements were in the areas of infrastructure development, safeguarding the country against communism, and international diplomacy.

The Love Bus

In another comment in the vlog, Amajble Adams inquires about the solutions to the bad traffic in EDSA. BBM explains that there should be an efficient transport system so that there will be lesser cars. During the time of PFM, there was the Love bus. It was a comfortable bus system with handy terminals. The Love Bus is one of the first air-conditioned buses in the country. The former First Lady Imelda R. Marcos who was a Metro Manila Governor back then spearheaded it. It was a revolutionary vehicle when it was first launched. The blue paint and with ‘no standing on the aisle’ policy were distinctive. The first terminal of the Love Bus was in Escolta, Manila. From there, the bus goes to Philcoa. It then makes a U-Turn towards East Avenue and Ali Mall terminal. There was also a route from Cubao to Rustan’s Makati and then back to Escolta.

In this video of Bongbong Marcos, he has a contrasting opinion on a no internet games rule for the children in the family. Instead, he warns parents to be vigilant by understanding their child’s activities online. This is because the skills needed in industries right now are also going digital. Mobile gaming now is not just a form of entertainment but a way of training to enhance creativity. Parents could be killing a child’s potential as an app creator that pays a lot of money. Like one educator said; Why force a child to go to school when he or she wants to do something else? Let the young ones fail so that they can learn, he added.

No Internet Games? Play Offline

Game consoles like Boc, PS4, and Nintendo are now phasing out. It just takes a smartphone with IoS or Android programs to run a mobile game. Once the app is downloaded, you go into a no internet games zone. The following mobile games can be played offline: Alto’s
Bloons TD 6.
Crossy Road.
A few Square Enix games.
Friday the 13th.
Hooky Crook.

Online Jobs Require Creativity and Diligence

Like any other online jobs, creativity, and diligence are needed to become a mobile gaming developer or even just a mere star player. Creating a mobile game app or performing well need concentration. Nagging children about staying away from their phones can only frustrate them. You must have a more interesting alternative if you wish your son or daughter to do something else.

Raising a Millionaire

Marcos reminds adults to be aware if you are raising a future millionaire. Brian Wong In 2010 with friends, Courtney Guertin and Amadeus Demarzi, founded Kiip. It is a mobile app rewards platform that allows companies and brands to give real-world rewards for in-game achievements. Kiip is active on more than 1,100 apps. It is installed on 75 million devices. These kids are just a few successful individuals. Simply because they are passionate with what they’re doing. Nurturing parents can enhance the talents of their offsprings.

A Degree Does Not Guarantee a Good-Paying Job

In the Philippines, there are many university degree holders who are still minimum wagers after many years of working in a company. These are people who are contented with routine jobs. Their biggest fear is the penetration of AI in businesses. All systematic tasks can soon be handled by it thus, eliminating the need for hiring people for these positions. However, a robot can never replace creativity, passion, and talent. So, time to make adjustments on parenthood strategies to mold happy and successful future people in the workforce.
