Once upon a time in Mondstadt.
Who says gamers aren’t romantic? With a popular video game, a month of preparation, and a humble surprise, Jerome Javillonar proposed to his long-time girlfriend; and she said yes.
Ronica Pilar Mejica Cabansag posted on social media how her ex-boyfriend proposed to her using their favorite game, Genshin Impact.
Explaining that he is a big introvert, she wasn’t expecting anything big when he asked her and her mom to visit him one night saying, “even his mom it looked like walang idea sa surprise”.
But when they asked her to open his room, she got a glimpse of lights and balloons that made her anxious about what the surprise could be. He even started capturing the moment with a video.
When she finally entered the room, he asked her to play Genshin Impact on his laptop where he made use of the Serenity Teapot function to create a maze.
Going around the maze, a poem made of in-game elements emerges: “Roses are red, Violets are blue, Forever is real with you, will you be my waifu?”
Twitter recently released their “2021 Year in Review” where the Philippines was among the top 10 countries that tweeted most about gaming last year.
With Japan, United States, and Korea in the top three, the Philippines remains high on the list at sixth. Twitter attributed this high ranking to the return of in-person events and new games.
Many professional teams also made headlines last year including Blacklist International’s champion win on the recently concluded Mobile Legends: Bang Bang World Championship (M3).
However, Genshin Impact remains the most talked about game in the country according to the Twitter report. Other games on the top five include Valorant Esports, Roblox, League of Legends, and Minecraft.
It’s not surprising to hear that Pinoy gamers will be inspired enough to make use of a game that can connect players. “Super naappreciate ko Yong effort niya,” wrote Cabansag.
