Is playing video games considered an actual hobby?

May seem kind of weird to ask but I’m a sort of a crossroads, I’m 21 and I enjoy playing them but is it really immature? I feel like I’m never doing anything productive … wondering what other people believe

I think it is. I mean it is something you spend time on and can improve over time skill wise so why not? I don’t think everyone considers it a hobby though and I am not sure why. If watching sports can be considered a hobby then so should playing video games.

Yeah, why not? I mean people say gardening, puzzles, and even poker is a hobby.

I think anything you do in your spare time on a regular basis can be considered a hobby.
