I know more than one person who play games while watching Netflix. Sure, it's a way to enjoy their day but if this is the case I'll simply skip for something else. From what I see grinding MMORPGs while watching series is a popular trend among my friends.

I'm guilty of constantly tabbing to read shit in between rounds on Overwatch but when the game starts I like it to be gamey enough to hold my attention.

Still, if the person enjoy their day doing that go for it, it's just not for me. :)
