Is it OK to keep video games as a hobby / social event?

I literally want to spend all of my days just playing video games with my friends, and at any time I can, I do. I and a good 6 or 7 of my friends all wake up sometime between 11 and 3 and go to bed between 2 and… Well, sometime after that. My parents are okay with it but they think it is just a kid-thing that I will grow out of, and I don’t think I will nor do I want to.
