Featured Gamer: Dian Dela Cruz
How about a break from all these "Beyond Gaming" stuff that Rocky talked about? Let's go back to the basics and feature a hardcore gamer that dates back in the early days of Philippine online gaming. Meet Dian, GameOPS' very own certified Gurl Gamer.
I don't know why I'm featuring her here again since you guys probably already know who she is. Maybe it has something to do with the flash grenade and jungle knife Dian's holding right now? Or maybe because I can't forget how she fragged me on Counter Strike with a pistol and a railgun on Quake? Heck, she even fragged me in Soldat T_T
Know more about Dian after the jump. And before you ask, NO, She's not single :P
I'm 23 years old this year (2010), a fresh graduate from De La Salle - College of St. Benilde after 6 ½ long years. I had too much fun in college so it took me awhile to finish. I’m now planning to take my masters in DLSU but still thinking about it. I just love school! Haha! I was born and raised in Metro Manila and now resides in Makati City. I'm currently managing my own shoe business which I will be launching on May.
When was the first time you actually played a video game? What's the name of the game and game system? What or who made you play?
I think I was only 9 years old (not sure) when my brother introduced me to my first video game. It was my idea, actually. We only had 1 computer at that time and I saw him playing DOOM so I asked him if I could try it. I got addicted to it. After school, I'd always cry to my brother so i could be first to use the computer. Now we have 6 computers at home (including laptops.) My sisters, my brother, even my dad are computer addicts. Yes, even my dad plays counter strike.
What is your favorite video game? Why?
My all-time faves are Counter Strike and Quake 3, because I'm good at it. Kidding, Well maybe just a little. I love fragging Jepoy while he's camping during our DOGZ days. Hah! :)
I'm one of the first few members of the Philippines' first online gaming community, Destiny's Online GameZone (DOGZ) and one of the members of the all girl group 7Ds (Seven Deadly Sins) Clan, also in DOGZ. Oh God, I’m such a nerd. Lol!
If you were to convince a friend or co-worker to play video games, how would you do it? Would you do crazy stuff just to convince him or her?
I'd invite him/her to play with me, 1 on 1 in counter-strike! If he/she is a first timer, I'll use only a knife just to be fair! (yabang!)
Did playing video games make any difference in your life?
Well, when I was in junior year high school, I skipped classes just for computer games! Ugh, I was on the honor list then. After excessive gaming, 2nd honor no more! So kids, you know what to do.
Any last message for our readers?
Sorry to disappoint you but yes I am not an interesting person. I was just a nerd back then who was addicted to Counter-Strike and Quake! Hahaha!!! I'll be posting here at GameOPS regularly now, promise!
