Joe Rogan doesn’t appear to be a big fan of video games.

During a recent episode of the JRE podcast with author, fitness guru and businessman Joe De Sena, Rogan said he believes video games are a “real problem” in society and are a “waste of time” for most people.

“Video games are a real problem, They’re a real problem. You know why? Because they’re f**king fun. You do them, and they’re real exciting, but you don’t get anywhere.”

“You [could be] doing something exciting and fun, or you could just be playing f**king video games, “Three years later you could just be that same kid, playing video games, waiting for the next whatever the f**k game is… You’re gonna waste your time.”

Rogan goes on to say that kids are better off doing something productive like learning Jiu-Jitsu.

“Like martial arts, you can get obsessed with Jiu-Jitsu and three years later you are an elite Jiu-Jitsu athlete and you’re entering into competitions and you’re a purple belt and you’re thinking maybe I’m able to open my own school someday.”

Rogan admitted that some kids are able to make money playing games but they have to be “adaptable”.

“There are kids that make a lot of f**king money playing video games,” he finished. “But you have to be adaptable, you have to able to play multiple video games. Because the one game you get really good at, what are the odds it’ll be around in 5 years time?”

Rogan’s comments obviously ticked off a large portion of the gaming population.
