Regardless, my argument remains truth, and one that I feel too many people do not consider these days when double-clicking that *.exe.
You have bettered no ones life, you have made no difference.

I could spend the morning doing a parachute jump or play CoH, either way I've still used up my morning doing something I enjoy which has next to no effect on anyone but myself. If people want to play these games to fill a social void, or just as a distraction from the monotony of reality, then so be it.
I see people who watch hours of TV a day, or go to the gym 4 hours a night. I see no therapy for their 'addiction', in fact they're considered normal.

productive: They better the body, mind or soul. They dont have to be "work", in fact they can be anything from meditation to lifting weights.
counter-productive: They better nothing, however, they do provide an escape and relaxation. Examples are television, computers, video games, etc.

You cant classify something as productive and counter-productive simply because even your "counter-productive" things are productive in the fact that they are necessary or helpful in some way or another.
P.S. isn't meditation a form of "escape and relaxation" ?
