I too have spent a good chunk of my spare time playing video games. The best time were when I was playing with friends... fighting games, Co-op RPGs, MMOs. I still have bonds with people I met online.
The same goes for photography. I keep a circle of friends that are enthusiastic like me and we go on shoots or talk about it over lunch. With my non-photographer friends, I take the pictures at the parties and trips we go on. Sometimes they will model for me.
It's not an investment in monetary terms, but an investment in yourself. I can think of much worse things I can be doing, so it is at least keeping me out of trouble!

Totally agree. An investment is only useful insomuch as it can make you happy. The point lost on a few of these guys is that different things make different people happy.
