Video Games, Movies, Novels, Music, Anime, you name it. Which is the best? You could also list the worst or do a ranking of each one you can think of.

1. Video games - interactive, fun for the whole family
2. Movies - like video games but for lazy people
3. Music - I can feel the energy music gives me and sometimes that energy is a boner
4. Novels - reading is for gay faggot nerds who are gay
5. Anime - I don’t watch chinese cartoons

I'd have said games up until a few years ago or so. Objectively I still think so, despite how it's become gayed the fuck up by lefties. I just don't have the energy or patience anymore though.

Now for me it's YouTube videos mostly, or maybe some anime, since my attention span won't get me through a full movie (and Hollywood is in even worse condition than the game industry, they churn out pure trash).

You'd need to put a gun to my head to get me to read nowadays. Music isn't interesting enough on its own either.

I think video games probably have the most potential of the primary entertainment types for pure absorption, but I also think it can be harder to find new ones that grab you as you work through them over decades. When it comes to non-interactive visual mediums I give a huge edge to series (TV shows, anime, etc.) over movies because they have more time to establish everything that goes into creating a thriving story over the comparably short film format. I actually think movies may be my least preferred medium as I probably have only watched about 10-20 in the past 8 or so years and the last movie I actually saw in theaters was Avengers: Age of Ultron. I've played more video games and watched more series at an exponential level in that time for comparison.

Books are an interesting one as they can be really absorbing in the right circumstances for the right people, but they for sure require the most effort on the consumers part for both reading the actual text as well as exerting the imagination to visualize what's on the page. I can see why they might be the least popular as movies/tv do all the work for you and video games carry the primary load of stimulus. It's understandable why they often fall to the wayside in modern times but they are for sure the most personalized experience when you get into them as how you see them mentally is unique for each person.

Music is not a primary entertainment form in my perspective. It's more of a background secondary thing, I don't think of it as something to engage with actively like the other listed mediums... I'm not gonna do nothing but listen to an album like I might focus fully on watching a movie.
