MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Rey Tiempo took Game On to the London International Awards judging in October 2022, sitting down with some of the most influential leaders in technology and gaming today – the same individuals who make up the inaugural Creativity in the Metaverse category jury. One of the esteemed personalities in the jury was Jia Zheng, Vice President for Creative Strategy at Activision Blizzard.
In this third and final installment of Game On with Jia Zheng, she talked about what it means to have a “Gaming Shaman,” and its role in introducing someone to the wonderful and epic world of gaming. Jia also touched on gamers navigating the virtual world vis-a-vis the real world, and the blurry line that separates and connects them both.
