It depends what you played. Games like Maplestory is a waste of your time repeating and killing monster unlike Crysis, Gta 4, Mafia 2 where you learn something new. Moderation is also important though.

Whilst i believe gaming is a waste of time (unless you are playing professionally or for some kind of benefit), it completely depends on what you could have been doing instead. If there is nothing else productive that you can think of to do then gaming is a fun way to pass the time.

It's ok in moderation. In my opinion, more than an hour a day is too much.

Time is for gaming.

gaming is bad if you spend more than 5hrs a day on them, its a nice way to wind down at the end of a day or if you're bored on the weekends but it can be addicting if you even attempt competitive play

I'd say no, it's a great way chill and let stress out.

i think it is as much wasting of time like watching a movie or reading a book andjust like the book you learn some things from it (like English games helped me a lot) and what do other people watching facebook or so all the same amount of waste (only gooing out with friends isn't a waste) so i'll take other :p because it is a waste of timebut maybe a better one than all the rest

If it's one of those great games you have to experience, like say Half Life 2, then no. If it's someone playing something like Call of Duty for the rank and not the fun, then I think it's a waste of time, in my opinion anyway.

Maybe I should stop wasting my time buy not watching your video's. Anything I enjoy is not time wasted. What do I consider wasted time? waiting 20 minutes for a bus when it would only take 10 minutes to walk.

I know it's a waste of time but I can't stop my self from playing games. I enjoy it in some kind of way, but at the same time im thinking of doing something productive. Games win in most cases.

I think it's a waste of time. I play games very rarely.
Benchmarking is much for fun! ;D

Hell no,

It can be an awesome way to unwind and escape from the bs that gets thrown at you during the day, week or what ever...great outlet for other things too.

I think it depends, It is a bit of a waste, I say that being a Web Designer, and I know when I play games I could be improving my designing skills. But at the same time everyones gotta relax once in a while and have fun.. I do think though if you play hours end you are truly wasting your time :P..

Everything needs to be in moderation.. Too much is not good..

ps. wasn't rly addicted, My points were good but could be better ;)

Just if you pay every month (WoW) than it's waste of time ;)
But it's very productive.. Just chill ;)

I believe that enjoying a leisure activity in moderation is not a waste of time. Unfortunately, for many in my generation, leisure has become their God. They may not be bowing down to a golden calf or statue, but they offer all of their extra money, time and devotion to it and it consumes their lives. For people who worship leisure activities, I'd say it's not only a waste of time, but destructive to their lives. For those who enjoy a good game now and then, I think it can be a great way to un-wind.

No.

And I can`t understand people saying that it is a waste of time. Gaming is a hobby people like to do just like they like to go hunting, wind serfing, reading books or what ever they enjoy.
