The Rise of Role-Playing Games (RPG)

Role-playing games (RPG) are the ‘in’ thing among the youth today. Actually, this has been the case in the last five years or so. Here in Manila, not all homes have a computer. That’s the reason why internet cafes have mushroomed like crazy in the city. That’s also the reason why the RPG trend has been sustained, even flourishing at that. If you’re a parent of a ten-year old boy, now you could probably guess where your son goes to after class.

One of the more popular RPG these days is the DEUS EX. According to Wikipedia, it’s “a cyberpunk-themed action role-playing game developed by Ion Storm Inc. and published by Eidos Interactive in 2000, which combines gameplay elements of first-person shooters with those of role-playing video games.” Cool game, eh?

I believe my brother has played it before, spending most of his allowance on internet cards than food. He seems to be more interested in girls now, but that’s a different story. I remember he once asked me to get him a Microsoft XBOX as birthday present because he wanted to play DEUS EX at the comforts of our home. But the frugal me didn’t give in to his request and instead, just gifted him with a new mobile phone.

If you’re really into RPG like the one I mentioned above, I suggest you invest in it by buying your own game. There are many online shops that sell them. Just make sure you deal with a legit one so you don’t end up wasting your money.
