When people say gamers aren't being productive...
Seriously :l I mean, what is "being productive."
As far as I know, we are all going to die, at least I'm going to enjoy my life and spent plenty of time doing what I love (gaming) as long as you're not struggling through and hating life or making life hard on others WHO CARES?!

Gaming = consumption of media. Now I know people who pull several hour gaming marathons.

Now Imagine if someone watches TV for 6 hours a day several days a week. Wouldn't you find that odd? Granted TV is far more passive than gaming, but they're both still consumption of media. You're not producing anything while you're doing it.

How could you be productive? Volunteering. Studying to achieve greater roles in society so you can do more to better society. Engaging in social interactions to help both yourself and other people develop and broaden your knowledge of the universe. Literally anything other than sit on your butt and consume media.

Everything is fine in moderation, but you need to get that if someone thinks you're gaming too much it's akin to someone thinking you watch too much TV.

Fair point but not exactly what I had meant.

Productivity true definition isn't exactly what I had meant, being that some people productivity could change how many things work in the world, such as new inventions and cures of disease.
But things many people consider to be proper usage of time, such as working extensive hours on hobbies people deem to be normal, such as working out, gardening, sports, Ect. People would normally see those things and figure "wow, that person knows how to spend there time well."
but would see other people like gamers and say things along the line of "wow what a ******* waist of time, that guy has achieved nothing."

Now i don't mean to be depressive when i say this, but in the long run everything you do could be considered a waist of time unless you enjoyed the time or it helped you enjoy something in the future. In the long run everyone dies, so all the things people think are important such as those things listed above will have been just as much of a waist of time as gaming and other things that are usually made fun of.
