Swiss Gamepad

Should I get off your lawn while I'm at it?

I can be anything.

Can we drop the hobby-shaming about video games, yet? I'm sick of my parents, my siblings, and even my spouse making me feel bad because I enjoy wasting some time playing video games. It's my time to waste, okay? And as far as hobbies go, it could be a lot worse. Sure, it can be a tad on the expensive side, but would you rather have me throwing my money away at the bar or a strip club or something? I don't get all uptight when you buy a new pair of shoes to go running in. I encourage you to pursue that endeavor! Particularly if it gets you out of my hair so I can play some games for a few hours.

I just don't understand how an interest that happens to occur outside is somehow more valid than one I can do from the comfort of my living room. So I sit on the couch. So what? Do you know how much I paid for this couch? I'm getting my money's worth out of this, okay? And sure, I didn't go outside today, but I did win a Super Bowl, save the planet from alien invasion, build an entire civilization and lead it from cave dwellers to star farers, and shoot roughly 500 dudes in Battlefield 3.

So you go ahead and roll your eyes about my hobby and how it's somehow not legitimate. I'll be in the living room enjoying myself.
