Less Online Games, More Sports says Philippine Congresswoman
AKBAYAN Party-List Representative Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel's message to a recent commencement exercise at the University of the Philippines Cebu College was that DOTA or any other role-playing game will not help hone the skills needed for college and beyond.
"DOTA, or any role-playing game for that matter, may be fun, but it won’t be able to teach you the skills you need for your first job, or for higher education. You may protest and extol the virtues of being Mogul the Axe for five hours, but unless you are in the brink of developing gaming software and needs the game to test your theories, then play DOTA or any RPG in moderation," she said.
Hontiveros-Baraquel stressed that graduates should take up sports instead of being addicted to online games.
