It's only a waste of time if you didn't enjoy it.

Well said.

If your're happy with what you do who cares what others think or say.

Escape is escape, be it books, tv, or games. I bet he spent way more time at work in the last few tears than gaming. Heaven knows i have.

I don't know if it's a waste, but that's a heck of a lot of time spent playing video games.

To a point. But I also think they can increase your situational awareness playing FPS games like Call of Duty, when you see red dots around you and are focused on killing a guy, looking at the radar and determining where they are vertically and then where they're going to go to get you and then having it play out is awesome. I've gotten a lot better at struggling at determining things like that to knowing where they were if I saw a red dot not even on a location on the map around me. It can totally help for stuff like that. But besides those small things and good tool to have kids expand their imagination and development, they're just entertainment.

It's a good use of time if the alternative would have been watching TV.

Ugh, Gran Turismo 2 and 4, Forza 2, Call of Duty 4, and head and shoulders above all else Halo 1, 2 and 3. So many hours well spent enjoying myself.

Back in 2007 when Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 came out, I don't think I ever even considered playing a game other than those 2 games for a good year or so. So many good times, time well spent.
