Yeah, I respect that. Since playing video games does not seem to be fun to you, it wouldn't make much sense to play them. However, would you find them to be a waste of time to people who enjoy them (referring to those who enjoy them in moderation)?

I only ask because I've heard the "don't understand why anyone would waste time with them when they could just be hanging with people instead" line in the past and it always makes me wonder if the people saying that sort of thing ever watched TV alone or perused the internet for no good reason.

Again, you were pretty clear in saying they were a waste of time for only you, I just thought I'd open things up to discourse a little bit.

Don't get it twisted, I waste time with the best of them. Video games are just at the bottom of the list of things I'd chose to waste my spare time with. Hell I'll sit and watch a re-run of Pimp my Ride when I get home from work sometimes. Not many things are more of a waste of time than that.

This is 100% how I am. Except it's obsessive and all consuming for like a month then a break for six or so months. this is because I'm obsessed with a couple of old xbox games with a lot a replayability, and my 360 broke like 3 years ago. San andreas, Vice city, Jade empire, Kotor 1&2, and star wars battlefront 2. I fully beat 2 of those games and play battlefront 2 like crazy then I give up on video games for another 6 or so months.

I have little to zero interest in video games anymore.

I used to play a lot of Playstation, 64, Xbox, etc. growing up and spent a lot of money getting games but I couldn't care less now.

Only games I will play are NHL, NBA2K or Madden.

More as a social thing. I don't feel the need to own a new gen console.

Other games literally bore me and seem so complicated to learn that I jus don't give a shit

use to be addicted to starcraft 1, counterstrike back in early high school
