Offline vs. Online Games

Being a kid in the 80s and even the 90s is far different from being a kid during this decade. The kids from the previous 3 decades were offline kids while the last decade are considered online kids.

The offline kids have enjoyed the sun too much that they actually changed color especially if they had fair complexion. Bones were stronger because of much running and jumping. The streets are filled with kids playing hide n’ seek, “tag, you’re it,” piko, tumbang preso, luksong tinik, luksong baka, which are mostly Filipino outdoor games. Kids will play as much as they can until they hear their parents call on them to have their lunch. Then it was customary to sleep in the afternoon. That is also one reason that children in the previous generation are usually bigger compared to children of today during the same age.

The online kids, on the other hand, are computer whiz genius that at a very young age they have learned how to master different keyboard combinations to play a 3D game that their parents could not even decipher. Some are bloggers already before reaching 10 and some have probably tried new bing0 sites! Not to mention, Facebook has a lot of games to offer not only for grown-ups but for kids too.

    I’m an offline gamer during my childhood. I actually feel bad that most of the kids in this generation aren’t aware or aren’t excited to try luksong baka, agawan base, patintero or tumbang preso. Most of my nephews have psp’s and are more knowledgeable with google games than me.

    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements

    It’s very Cute design.Looks to me like they designed it “in-house”. Your best bet is to contact their corporate office and see if they will tell you.
