TV>Video games (not)
Anyways, my point. Whenever I met these people, they seem content to tell gamers to get a life while spending hours watching reality television or obsessing over football rivalries themselves. Is it really sad for me to spend a decent amount of my time playing strategy games and League of Legends but not for them obsessing over... well, I hate to make jabs at reality television, because karma is a *****.
So, why can't everyone have their own obsessions, and we all can be cool with that? Except for the dangerous ones of course. I tend to discourage obsessions with pyrotechnics on the basis of that being slightly accident prone.
