Has anyone seen the movie RPG Metanoia? It's the first Filipino 3D computer animated adventure film. They said the idea for this film was brought by the writer's intention to show his nephew what he is really missing as a kid. As we all know, kids of this generation are now exposed to all kinds of technology aka game consoles. They still play and have playmates but at the confines of either their homes or internet shops.
I have no deep analysis or whatsoever in relation to technology and RPG games. I have nothing against technology. I'm a proud owner of modern gadgets. I praise how technology progress so fast. But I just missed being a kid!!!!
Try to watch the above clip and it will really touch your heart and make you yearn for years that passed. Years when were young, wild and free. Years when the major problems that we would have are food, toys and clothing. Years when the biggest pain that we would be suffering are from bruised elbows and knees. Years when money were treated only as tool for buying sweet treats.
Those were the years. Those were the memories of the past. But, hey, stop. We can bring back memories to life di ba? Re-live it! Just as the old games that we used to play. From siato, piko to patintero. Luksong tinik, holen, agawan base and taguan. Name it. Nalaro ko na yan!
We can teach the younger generations how to play these games.We can still in their minds that these are pure-blooded Pinoy games.We can part them memories of our younger years and make them love it too. We can make them go outside, line in the streets, group themselves and sing the game's song. We can help them grow healthy and strong as they run, jump and try to catch their playmates. As oppose to spending hours sitting in front of computers. We can make their minds work by letting them think strategies on how to catch their prey. We can help them promote camaraderie and be sport.
There are so many "We can.." only if we do so.. Only if we take the initiative and take these ideas to life. So, come and let's help promote and preserve Pinoy culture. Game na? Taya!
