No offense to this giant network who produced this game show but for me it is deceptive. I stay awake very late until dawn while doing my projects and having my television on. For the past few months, I enjoyed watching this show but then for so long I came up with a reaction according to my firsthand observations. I consider Games UpLate Live deceptive to its viewers. We’ll get them deceived by easy games with prizes ranging from 1,000 to 30,000 or even more at times. But consider the process: Per download will cost you 10 pesos and I’m pretty sure there are a lot of downloaders out there staying uplate to push their luck on this game. With all the tempting prizes, it requires nothing less but your day to day encounters on something or any vocabulary for example. With 10 chances to win and guess the word in the game, only a few (2 or 3 ) will make it. There are so many ways for them to change the word behind the board so the contestant being called up won’t make it. And one more thing, for an hour and a half, why only 2 to 5 people are being called? I guess Pinoys should take a little more caution to this deceptive people doing their best just to push through on their own selfish agenda. I don’t intend to convince any of my readers but I really feel good sharing my sentiments, my reactions, my opinions toward something especially if it is really something ought to be said and shared. For Games UpLate Live, if you really are not deceiving your viewers try to be more transparent. I’m part of this society and social awareness is much needed.
