I do not feel so. Rather it is like a break from the daily chores when you play your favorit computer game. But my daugher and husband feel I waste my time playing them. Oh it is real fun when you reach the levels given by them with a good score. How do you feel.

Hi friend, Thanks for your response. Anything when you get addicted is bad. So long as you maintain limits it is always good.

I think it is waste of time...I rather do mylotting and make money :-) My hus loves playing games on the computer..I think people are addicted and eventually they waste a lot of time on that...because in games, the person will not feel like leaving it half way and hence wastes time on that...

I don't agree with you. A thing that refreshes you or relaxes you can never be termed waste of time. Life is not always making money. You need some relaxation and fun too. Happy mylotting.

I love playing computer games whenever I get time especially games like free cell, solitaire, even other games on the net are exciting. As you say it is a great relief when you play some of these games after the daily routine work. Even my children and husband do sometimes do not like me playing but I just enjoy.

Well, computer games aren't a waste of time if you can control yourself, try not to play 24 hours straight =p and games are really fun and are good to pass time and relieve stress from everyday life

No i don't feel so.TO play a game we need a lot of concentration.And we enjoy alot till the end of the game.No more is precious than enjoyment in our break time.And it makes the children challenging to do a task again and again

I play games to refresh my mind.It give some sort of relaxation some time.But if I play more time,definitely it is a time wasting effort.

I don't think it's a waste of time as long as you don't do it to the exclusion of everything else. I'll admit that there have been days that I really did nothing but play games on the computer -- which really was a waste of time since I had stuff I should have been doing instead. But when I play computer games, I tend to gravitate towards puzzle, hidden object and brain teaser games. The type of games that exercise your mind while providing entertainment. That's certainly not a waste of time, since games that exercise your mind helps keep you thinking sharp according to "the experts" whoever the experts are.

I enjoy playing computer games. My husband and I often play the game Mahjong (I think I spelled correctly, it is the Chineese card game). My husband has been playing it for a long time, then I thought it is stupid and waste of time. Now, he taught me that and I started playing it often. I think these games are relaxing and refreshing.

computer games are good stress busters and one generally play such games when they have enough time to waste ;) I do play computer games when ever i take a break from my routine. But i don't personally like when people get addicted to computer games and forget to complete their tasks. Other wise it is a wise and productive way to pass time :)
