John Raner Pascual is a Junior Buyer for Procurement. Raner’s job requires him to be analytical, creative, and aware. But he doesn’t put these skills to rest when he’s off work. Instead, he leverages them in video games. Raner plays a variety of titles, from Valorant to Super Mario Odyssey. His gaming journey all began with the PlayStation 1. He has since then moved on to other devices, like his customized computer, to play high-resolution games.

What Raner likes about gaming: • It’s an immersive experience that challenges me to be creative and critical • It helps me connect and reconnect with friends, which was helpful during the pandemic What Raner finds challenging about gaming: • Time management • The console and games can be expensive.
