PHOTOS: How Kids Had Fun Before Gadgets Took Over

Remember the time when we used to spend the entire summer running around outside with our playmates?

Does “Langit, Lupa”, “Tumbang Preso”, “Patintero“, and “Taguan” ring a bell?

Those were the games we used to play when we were kids. But now, with all the smartphones and tablets around, most kids of today prefer to stay at home and swipe on their gadgets. Not that I’m saying that this is wrong, it’s just that these kids are missing out on physical activities and experiencing the real world.

Anyway, here’s a nostalgic look back to all those games. Lemuel Macalinao posted on Facebook an album filled with games we used to play before gadgets took over.
