Posted May 01, 2018 06:14:16If you’re an average, everyday person, you probably won’t be caught off guard by the news that Philippines is set to be the first country in Asia to officially ban virtual reality (VR) content.
That means, barring the occasional ‘we’re all the same’ moment, there’s really not much to it.
As VR-savvy Filipinos and people around the world have been saying for years, it’s time for us to embrace our own unique culture.
That’s not to say that we don’t still have our own ‘special brand of geek’ on the internet, as the Philippines is a place that loves to showcase its own unique style of geekery.
But in this article, we’re going to take a look at how to be more ‘fake’ when it comes to the VR-obsessed world of the Philippines.
The ‘real geek’ doesn’t exist 1.
If you were to take the word ‘real’ out of the title of this article and use it as a generic label for all geeky-fied things, you’d probably end up with a bunch of self-important, over-saturated, internet-only, internet content that is totally unsuitable for mainstream audiences.
This is where you need to be real.
Not in the sense of being cool or cool-minded, but in the spirit of the real.
There is no such thing as a ‘real Geek’.
You’re not a ‘regular’ person.
You’re a person who has chosen to embrace a niche interest.
So, what is it about being a ‘Fake Geek’ that makes you more ‘real’?
It’s not about being an online ‘fandom’ or a ‘troll’ on a forum.
Rather, it is about being the kind of person who is ‘real’.
The term ‘fake nerd’ comes from the phrase ‘fake internet’.
In the same way that the term ‘real person’ comes to be used for the person who takes an interest in something that is not their personal interest, it comes with the implication that being a person with a particular interest is something that they are not.
As someone who is passionate about geeky things, I think it’s important to understand that there is no one-size-fits-all type of person.
It’s important for us all to be authentic.
So what do you do when you want to be different?
Do you embrace the ‘authenticity’ of something and become a ‘faker’?
Or do you embrace something that you’re not passionate about and become the kinder, gentler ‘realist’?
This article is meant to be your guide to finding the ‘real you’ in this world.
If you’ve been wondering how to ‘fake it’, here’s how: A geek is someone who:1.

can be sarcastic, but doesn’t seem to be too serious about it.
The most important thing to remember when choosing the ‘right’ type of ‘fake gamer’ is that you can be a geek.
That said, if you are in the same boat as others, you needn’t feel embarrassed.
We all have our special brand of nerd that makes us unique.
And, while we all have different tastes and interests, we all also have a common bond that we’re all striving to share.
In this way, you will be able to find the ‘perfect’ geek that fits your niche.
You need to embrace the way of the ‘fake online’ The internet is a platform where anyone can be anything.
From a professional web developer, to a social media influencer, to an ‘alternative’ online gaming platformer.
It is also where you can create a life.
For many, it was their dream to get paid by the minute.
The internet, in many ways, is a way to make a living.
There are a few ‘real money’ gaming sites that can provide this, but if you want your money to be yours, you’ll need to do your own online gaming.
