Joe Rogan is talking about video games again, and is going viral because of it. During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, the comedian and podcaster suggested that the video game was a waste of time, and these comments were aired on the Internet and social media. After a long time, people and in particular, prominent members of the gaming community reacted. Some agreed with Rogan’s taking, others defended it with context, but most took umbrage with it.
“Video games are a real problem,” said Joe Rogan while speaking with Joe Day Senna during JRE # 1514. “They are a real problem. You know why? Because they are f ****. I have a real problem with them. And they are really exciting, but you don’t get anywhere.
Rogan continued his hobby of martial arts, noting that one could learn about and be inspired by jujutsu, and it could lead to a real career. However, it could not go anywhere. Equating the two, Rogan noted that there is truth about video games. It is possible to make a career out of passion or passion for video games, but this is not common.
Rogan also admits, the same is true with a career in stand-up comedy, and he is told that his passion for it is a waste of time. As a result, he doesn’t like the “one in a million” rhetoric about making a career out of video games, but he says it’s difficult and warns against the negative effects of playing too many rounds Earthquake.
As you would expect, shorter versions of the video above are going viral, and in many cases, people are not fully listening to the comedian’s move. However, others have pointed out the real flaws in taking it, which is that it is a generalization and misses the point that most people who play the game play it within moderation and do not , But one form of this is entertainment.

I love Joe Rogan but …
Can’t this be said about an entertainment product such as sports or movies (or something like UFC)?
If a video game is a “waste of time”, what other entertainment product pays? A weird criticism especially just for video games. / Https://t.co/IWRcxw2d4g

His comment comes from a place of being more accustomed to video games than anything borderline, with Rozan playing Quake for 20 years and bringing in pros and devs as guests. If you are going to be mad at Rogan, then there is better stuff to choose from.

Joe Rogan says video games are a waste of time.
Video games are an important part of my mental health. I play them when I need a break from work. They enrich my life in the same way that books and films do. Video games are not a waste of time. Telling someone how to enjoy their life.

Listening to this podcast is a waste of time if you do it all day and wait for the next episode.
Taking generalized spoilage is bad. Anything higher can be harmful. Video games have made many people successful, they are the reason for the majority of my friendship, etc. https://t.co/j86f8VZUU
