My experiences as online game player
By Elrond Abram G. Esplana, 7th year grader student, Philippine Christian University-Union High School of Manila (PCU-UHSM)
As an online game player, I am playing Minecraft, Roblox, Five Night’s at Freddy, and many more. I am playing online games because I want to become a professional online gamer and You Tuber like DanTDM, Srampylonghead, Iballisticsquid, Ashdub, and more celebrity You Tubers. I really love to play games since I started playing games in 2010, when I was 7 years old during that time. I played computer games initially with the stand alone computer game technology which I used to play using my father’s old computer, desktop Windows XP.
When I play games, I learned many things such as: 1) learning to understand and speak in English; 2) knowing other game players in different countries, including my fellow Filipino game players, schoolmates, and classmates; 3) learning to make strategy, be alert to remain alive in the game, 4) developing the skills in finger dexterity to win the games; and 5) other learning experiences I gained from one online game type to another.
Almost every day, I played games at least two hours or if I have time and I am not doing anything. I use Smart Phone, Tablet, and Computer in playing games. Now that I can make online blogs, I write article and stories about my experiences in playing online games. This makes me happy and gives me the positive feeling and confident to myself.
My inspiration in playing online games is anyone who I loved and awesome, like my parents and brother. I’m inspired to be a good online game player because i want to dedicate them to my parents and my brother who are awesome and good people. Now that I am grade 7 student, I want to see myself in the next five to ten years from now that I already graduate in college. I want to be a successful person like a programmer or a software engineer in the future. My course degree in college which I want to take is computer science, and then, I will make online games.
