Yes, I know all of that. I even explicitly said I pretty much despise the guy. I'm not sure how to make that clearer.
My only point was that this stereotype of gamers as overweight 37 year olds living in their basements seems rather laughably out of date in 2017, when there are high-profile people like him raking in the cash for doing it.
I don't really like watching things just to kill my time unless I'm depressed and don't want to do anything (like now). I also consider watching sports is totally the same as watching a stream. If I'm watching a whatever thing I don't really care (or you can consider I just want some background noise for X reasons), I'll have my Rubik's Cube with me.
I usually only watch informative gameplay videos, but it limits to somebody I know well (maybe) or something I've played. Sometimes I'll watch blind playthroughs for fun, but it's kind of unlikely. To be honest, gaming is some brain working to me unless you just play some games that doesn't even require thinking, or low amount of thinking. I don't think playing games is that bad until it gets in the way of your life, which doesn't happen to me, so I still think gaming is a positive thing for me.
I'll be sure to tell Vinny he's a failure at life who lives with his parents (ANYTHING but that!!) :)
