Globe has launched the “Game Well-Played” campaign a few weeks ago as the company tries to push past gamer stereotypes that has plagued gamers to this day.
In a 2020 statistics report that Globe shared that around 43 million gamers within the Southeast Asia region has seen an unprecedented rise in the Philippine gaming industry. With the report also stating that 74% of the Philippine online gaming population playing on their mobile devices, 65% on PC games, and 45% playing on the classic console games.
While there are many stereotypes and stigma around gaming, we believe that there is value to acquire in spending hours of training for a competition or simply getting lost in a new world while meeting new friends. In seemingly dire battlegrounds, strategic thinking and creativity can flourish.
Said Rina Siongco, Head of Get Entertained Tribe at Globe.
The campaign kicked off with #KakalaroKoYanWithGlobe movement where everyone is encouraged to share the different benefits gaming has brought in their everyday lives, to break the stereotype around it by answering the question: Ano nga ba ang napapala ko sa paglalaro? To answer this question Globe invited content creators Cherizawa and Boss Maw and shared how gaming helped them gain valuable skills like time management, financial independence, and multitasking in a series of social media posts using the campaign hashtag. They recount that gamers can develop these skills while playing games like Mobile Legends.
To further push the point Globe also released a digital film titled Good Son which can be seen below.
Ralph Aligada, Head of Games and Esports at Globe, said,
With #KakalaroKoYanwithGlobe, we encourage everyone to see the good gaming brings beyond the screen. More than the entertainment it brings, gaming can actually help an individual to develop skills and capabilities that can help him be more successful in life, enabling him to help others too.
Globe adds more to existing bundles

Globe further shared it’s dedication in changing things up and establishing its position as the leading partner in gaming in the country by throwing its full support to professional leagues like Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL), and organizations like AcadArena and Blacklist International.
