What do you do when you don't play video games?

We all love video games and we'd do nothing but play them if we could.  Sometimes they're not available.  The question is: What do you do when you can't play video games?  Or, what else do you like doing?

Sometimes I need a break from blowing up ships and stomping goombas and throwing touchdowns.  I like to read books, I like writing short stories.  I like running and working out and playing with my kids.  I'll watch college football on tv.

This isn't about what you have to do, like homework or chores, but what you want to do.

When I'm not playing games, I'm typically reading up on linguistics (what little I'm able to understand...) or in a number of Discord servers either talking with members of the conlanging communities to better understand parts of linguistics I can't wrap my head around without a very simple explanation or talking about music, videogames and politics with my friends. I spend a little time on YouTube to see if anyone I'm subscribed to has uploaded recently.

That's pretty much it, though. Games, friends, studying if I feel like it. I haven't entered the workforce yet so I'm lacking in responsibility.

Well, I must admit I wouldn't be playing videogames all day if I could. In fact, I'm home alone for the weekend and I've barely touched my PS4 besides watching the videos I've been recording the past week, so there you go.

Still, when not playing videogames, I'm either watching sports (the only thing I regularly watch on TV) or writing guides. I could add up studying, though depending on what I have to study it can be a total pain and I need some preparation to tackle it. And well, watching anime would also count, even if nothing new has aired I have a list of "favorites" to go watch whenever I have nothing better to do.

I love doing a variety of things. Going for walks, hanging out with friends, going to the movies, exploring new roads, and stuff like that. It really depends on the day though. Sometimes I want to be inside but not really play games. In that case, I get some friends and play board games! I love playing board games. If no one is available to hang out, I'll read a book.

Everything I do that's not gaming:

1) School, which makes sense because I attend school and assignments keep me busy. Plus, I spend extra hours at school for friends and zumba.

2) writing, because I love to write so much, and this also connects with school, due to being in a writing class

3) sleep, because honestly, if I don't get enough sleep, I'm a complete grouch, and sleep is important.

4) discord, since I love to bother my friends and troll them

5) dance, if I have time, I like to dance a bit

Simply put, I don't really game much anymore, so it's easy to do anything when I'm not playing a game.

I'm not sure I understand why you'd need a break from those things, but I guess all things in moderation?

When I'm not gaming, I'm working, sleeping, watching Futurama for the 10000000th time, talking to Aria, or just chatting on discord.

I'm either sleeping, on the train, eating, or working, when I'm not playing video games. Pretty much everything that I ever do can be categorized into one of those places.

When I'm not gaming, I'm usually either working, running errands, house shores, watching tv shows or movies, or I'm out hanging out and drinking somewhere. I definitely want to make more time for gaming though, but with wanting to exercise and learning new hobbies, it becomes a bit difficult specially when I live with another gamer and we share a PC so more than often I game on my Xbox One or WiiU.

When I'm not playing video games I am usually at school or doing school work. I enjoy going on walks too, I moved to a new city a few years ago and I've been exploring every part of it. It's a pretty small place so I can walk across it in about an hour or two. I enjoy reading too and I have a handful of friends I hangout with too. I also write my own music too so I'm usually also doing that and recording it or something. I'm almost done a new album!

I also work, so I do that too. Almost forgot to include that. Now that I think about it, I don't really play video games as much as I used to.

If I'm not playing and video games (and working and sleeping doesn't really count), as an artist, I dedicate my time drawing stuff. So, outside of work and sleep, it's video games and drawing.

When I don't play video games, I either read books, hang out with my friends, read manga, work out, or work on my story. I even listen to songs on my phone sometimes. There are many things I could be doing when I don't play videogames!
