There’s nothing wrong with playing a Pokemon game at the age of 35. Hah, just kidding. There’s a lot of things wrong with that. Video games have stress decompression components similar to watching an episode of The Walking Dead or sipping a Macallan 25 neat in front of a fireplace. The only real problem with gaming while in a professional career is that there’s a much larger time investment required. If you do manage to break free from the shackles of life and are ready to burn a few hours on a video game, you had better spend it wisely. And no, we’ll never suggest anything embarrassing to play.Lets explore what we call, “sophisticated gaming” for the modern man.

RAMONE is a composition of non-fiction short stories and introspections by Reggie Tan.

Howdy. I first started blogging on RAMONE.ca in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.

About me-Power user of technology. Style guy. Avid gamer. Obsessed with the Cybertruck. Lyrical poet. I like my beats bottom heavy. Madaline is ∞. Only God can judge me. INTP. Birthed in the East Coast of Canada by a pair of cool Filipino parents. Cautiously ADHD. I prefer my whisky neat with a tumbler of room-temp water. Otherwise, a pint of your best draught will do.

I'm a member of the anti-social club. Happily retired from Facebook or Instagram. My verified Twitter account was recently hacked. I do use LinkedIn for business.
