Here’s how you can take your gaming time to the next level
Even before the days of the pandemic, online gaming has been a part of many Filipinos’ day- to-day activities. Today, it has been a way for people to get together remotely and a way to escape the stress caused by the work from home set up. Thanks to online games, anyone can have a serious “good game” or GG with their friends without leaving the comforts of their own home.
As an avid gamer, cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao understands the importance of having a GG time. Known for her gaming skills in Dota 2 and League of Legends, she knows a few tricks to keep
you on top of your game and ultimately have a smashing experience before and after the games.
Schedule gaming hours
With deadlines at work, daily errands to attend to, and the need to beat a game record, one might just get overwhelmed with all the things to juggle. As the line between work and leisure has blurred, scheduling your activities can be the key to keep you sane and not let game time affect your productivity and even your relationships.
“Allot a certain number of hours and always be aware how much time you spend on gaming,” she says. “Make sure it won’t affect personal relationships negatively. Having a good balanced routine would be best.”
Dress up for the game
Exerting a little effort on your clothing doesn’t hurt. Much like a Zoom meeting, sometimes online gaming involves you sitting in front of a camera. This doesn’t mean you go full on cosplay while playing. Making sure you that you at least put on a presentable and comfortable shirt is good enough, keeping in mind that you’ll be playing for hours. Better yet, wear your team spirit by donning a graphic character shirt.
While playing is already fun, kick the experience up a notch by having snack on your GG time. Food delivery apps like Foodpanda can be a lifesaver when you are hungry while in the middle of your game.
“Have everything automated already. Have your payment terms done all online so that, in just a few clicks, you can get the food you want without bringing out your wallet,” Alodia says. “It’s very convenient if you are in the middle of a game or stream. I really love how convenient Foodpanda is because my orders arrive after a game or two during my stream.”
Whichever kind of gamer you are, whether you’re an almost pro or a casual spectator, Foodpanda’s selection of meals under Gamer Chow features Alodia’s favorite restaurants that you can order from with just one tap and many are equal parts tasty and easy to binge on while playing. Enjoy Alodia's picks, from chicken, pizza, burger, and fries to every possible feel-good food that deserves a spot in your own restaurant rotation. The best part? Foodpanda delivers food and other goods in 25 minutes or less, with insane deals that reach as much as 40 percent off from over 20,000 restaurants nationwide. This is the best time to stay in and order whether you’re a noob or celebrating a winning streak.
