Tell me one reasonably well known famous/successful person who plays a lot of video games (excluding pro-gamers).
Are video game just worthless time sinks that destroy your potential to succeed?
This is probably not gonna ring any bells since OP is probably underage, but DJ Clue who is arguably the greatest and most influential rap producer of all time had a well documented video game addiction (this was during the PS2 heyday).
Elon Musk, arguably the most successful entrepreneur of our time, has been recorded to binge on video games for days at a time. (Source: I just read his biography book, it said he was never big into alcohol or drugs or stuff like that, but his friends would have to stop him from playing video games at times)
Rampage Jackson has a vidya addiction and even streams on twitch.
Motherfucker said he used to play virtua fighter at the arcades in japan before fights
Nick lachey, snoop dog, and Harry potter's 3 actors all rumored to play runescape (like 10 years ago).
Elon musk is pretty legit gamer. Look up the Reddit Ama where he plays bioshock, civ, etc.
That kid Carl from walking dead has a YouTube video game channel.
Lots of fucking people play games yet don't talk about it.
I mean, unless you're some kind of theist or believe in some kind of overarching force in the universe guiding our lives then even education is as pointless as entertainment. Even then you can still be religious and think it's all pointless.
I'm Christian and Ecclesiastes used to resonate a lot with me on how pointless everything is.
