Joe Rogan Brands Video Games As A 'Real Problem' And A 'Waste Of Time'

UFC legend Joe Rogan has faced significant backlash on social media after branding gaming as a "waste of time."

Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience with Joe De Sena, the 52-year-old American podcaster insisted that there is a "real problem" with gaming.

Rogan explained: "They're a real problem. You know why? Because they're f*****g fun. They're [addictive], I have a real problem with them. You do them, and they're real exciting, but you don't get anywhere."

The long-time UFC commentator went on to make an unusual comparison between MMA and gaming.

"You could be doing something exciting and fun, or you could just be playing f*****g video games," Rogan said.

"Three years later, you could just be that same kid, just playing video games, waiting for the next whatever the f**k game is... and you're gonna waste your time."

Rogan continued by moving on to people who are making "a lot of f*****g money" through gaming streams.
