I work a second job as a freelance writer (first baby on the way!!!). If I don't produce, I don't get paid! For a break, I'll play some quick video games to clear my head.
Television, in its modern incarnation, is the bane of society. And RPG games, gotta lump those in, too. An occasional TV show or movie may not be bad, but hours of mind-numbing drivel that could be spent bettering yourself or actually parenting children are wasted on the tube. And how many hours have you spent "leveling up" you character (I include my younger self in this) when you could be gaining real life "experience points" leveling yourself up?!
