Also, other players have other vices, like going to strip clubs or nightclubs or sleeping with a lot of women every week which is tiring too cause guys don't want to be done after just 2 minutes and those threesomes can be demanding.
The only real argument against gaming is probably how it can effect dopamine and might numb players to the thrill of working hard and getting that delayed gratification. But you'd have to conduct a study in order to truly prove that.
If this were true, you would expect lower prevalence rates of ADHD among professional athletes than in the general population, but current research suggests the opposite.
