Megan Young shares passion for gaming and Pokémon

Many people know Megan Young as an actress and model. In 2013, she also made history as the first Filipina to win the Miss World title. Some, however, might not be aware she also has a passion for gaming. Her love affair with video games started when she was very young. No pun intended.

“Our parents had 9 to 5 jobs (my mom worked three jobs at one point). So I guess they needed to find a way to stop us from causing havoc around the house! Kidding aside, I remember clearly that our dad bought us an SNES. I couldn’t stop playing games like Q*bert and Galaga. I was really young, and I probably didn’t understand the mechanics of the game. But I was so drawn to the style of the games,” Young told Digital Life Asia.

“We had our first PC at home when I was eight years old. My dad thought it would be something I would like since I wasn’t the type of kid that liked sports or going out to play. From there, he showed me how I can make my own website through an online generator that would put everything together. As I was learning more about it on my own, I knew I wanted to push beyond just clicking away at options and started reading about HTML, CSS, and Java so that I could make my website better than the other ones out there! I guess I really was competitive early on haha!”

Gaming PCs come of age with new Lenovo Legion lineup

Lenovo Asia Pacific Gaming Lead Ian Tan emphasized that the company designs gaming PCs based on what gamers want.

Remember when gaming laptops looked like alien machines? With flamboyant designs that loudly proclaimed to the whole world that the owner was a hardcore gamer? Nowadays, however, avid gamers are more likely to choose gaming PCs that combine a stylish design for everyday use and savage performance for intense gaming sessions.

“There will always be different horses for different courses, and people will want certain types of designs. There will always be people who like loud designs. But the majority of gamers want something that is sophisticated. That looks like you can bring this anywhere and it will look cool. I’m quite hardcore myself, and I love technology in all its forms. So if you look at my router at home, it’s got a loud design. But the laptop that I bring, given the different scenarios that I often find myself in, I need it to be as sleek and beautiful as possible,” Lenovo Asia Pacific Gaming Lead Ian Tan said in response to a question from Digital Life Asia during the online product launch of the Lenovo Legion 2020 lineup on April 17.

“Because sometimes that also forms other people’s impression of you when you bring it around and use it for meetings. So I think for hardcore gamers, there’s also been an increasing demand for more minimalist designs. There’s a bunch of them who really like very bombastic designs and very loud stuff, and that’s cool. But we cater to the broader market out there which is what we have designed right now and you see that in the Lenovo Legion lineup,” he said.
