    Hello Guys!
    How do you usually spending your free time when you are out of work or your business?
    As for me, this is really important to do something completely different for an hour at least, when I'm back home.
    I would prefer to play some online games, such as FIFA 17 or LoL. That really helps me to forget about my business issues for an hour or so.

    I play basketball, baseball and lacrosse to refresh myself. But, I do more preference to outdoor games instead of online games. It gives me a break from mental pressure and helps me to restore my energy.

    I also meet with my friends once or twice a week to play basketball. This really help us to keep in shape and forget about any other issues related to the business.

    I stopped playing games a few years ago. I'm watching tv shows and movies when I have time to spare.
    I want to drop these as well and start reading business books and self improvement.

    Personally i really enjoy playing racing games, coming back from work taking my full wheel set, putting any ps4 racing game and just go...
    Other times when all friends are online, we easily go play GTA online, causing mayhem in da streets! Meanwhile when we make break at work, we usually play silly small game called Mu Origins, via phone.

    Cheers

    I play a matching game called "Jewels 2", and recently downloaded "Mario Run", the first game for Android from Nintendo. You do have to pay attention when playing "Mario" though, so I only do that at very slow times.

    I likes playing matching game type. But I also want to compete with other so I usually play online games like League of Legends more xD

    I mix gaming and working at the same time, it makes my team on edge and moral high at the same time.
    We have a compulsory gaming time while at work, it started with board games then we transitioned to video games when we got console (PS4).

    I'm not really big on video games. I spend 5-6 days mostly sitting in front of a computer so I don't really want to have to spend the rest of the week not getting things done. Instead, I visit the weekend organic market near my apartment and catch up with a few friends over brunch. Although I'm pretty guilty of binge-watching a couple of Netflix series a few times a month. :D

    I play one or two Lol's a day after work and before clases, if i don't have to study. It helps me clear my mind and after years of gaming, i even think it helps me think faster and (talking about lol) it made me have a "team" mindset, which includes a lot of patience. But i like to go to the gym in the mornings before work, like 6am. Once you get used to it is amazing!

    There was a time I use to play all kind of games but now unfortunately I don't have much spare time to play games. At present I play FIFA occasionally.

    I think LoL is so much fun simply because there's not exactly an end to it! You just keep leveling up and improving your skills. I love the idea of working with a team and really having a strategy... not just button mashing.

    I like to play League of Legends because of its features where one or more player can play and it gives too many adventures, fun and, enjoyment.

    Video games have just gotten more sophisticated and more accessible (you can browse through thousands of free ones on your smartphone), people are making more time to play them.

    Another possibility: Young men may be playing video games instead of working because they’re having trouble finding a job, especially one that offers good wages and upward mobility. The lower the wage, the less incentivizing it is to keep at it if you have the option of say, living with mom and dad for a while.

    I have to say that I'm spending a lot of time in Assassin's creed Odyssey universe after work. :D
    I like games with an open world, different things to do.

    I can talk about games like all the time. I'm happy that my work is kind a connected to video games.
    When people see how I like video games they often are shocked because it doesn't seem like me at all. :D
