I receive this comment often from friends and family when I told them that I spent the weekend gaming.

I get it. Gaming can be anti-social. (Though it really depends on the game). But at the same time, it’s a hobby. It does not have to be social.

I think it’s good to have hobbies – I certainly have other hobbies including  painting, yoga, and reading. However, when it comes down to it, painting, yoga, and reading aren’t really social either.

My argument is simple: hobbies should be based on what the person enjoys, and hopefully, is not something that negatively affects a person’s well-being. That is all. 🙂
