Video games are certainly at the top. I like collectibles, such as trading card games and such. That's about it, though there are a few things I'd like to get into if I were able to.

i dont have a lot of "passion" for anything anymore but i still have a pretty vested interest in chiptune since that makes up like 80% of my friend group at this point. i also really like the donkey kong country franchise

History, mostly. Also playing games and coding, but to a bit of a lesser degree.

Music and wrestling are my two primary hobbies. After that, I like watching sports (particularly basketball and football), movies, video games, TV and stand-up comedy. If movies, TV, etc. are super-campy I'm especially interested in those. I guess you could also classify writing as a hobby but as somebody who writes at least somewhat professionally, I really don't do that.

I also like trying different craft beers.

Traveling, reading, playing complicated board games/card games, and baking. Though I’ve had to stop baking because of my diet sadly. I’d like to get back into writing. Especially because I’m going to try to start publishing my grad work.

...well, I mean, it's all different kinds of things. I mean, I like the coins that I'm into, I like the comics I'm into, I like the books and movies and games that I'm into.

Like, sometimes I'm not even entirely into the thing. I like Magic the Gathering, by way of a for instance. I like making dumb decks. I love nickel commons, and just pawin through cards, but I would never buy a special card out of the showcase at the comic shop, and I would never enter a tourney. And like I don't think I have to re-articulate my stance on Star Wars at this point. If it isn't eps IV-VII, the Ewok flicks and a very limited selection of books, games and comics, I barely care.

Games (video/board), keeping up with world events/random trivia investigations, and learning Japanese pretty much take up all my time. Travel is big as well.

I'd love to do more coding on my own if I had more time in the day and didn't already spend 40 hours a week doing that for work.

Drawing and writing are the big ones for me, and the intersection in that Venn diagram is making comics.

I also love to read, particularly comics and graphic novels, as well as subjects like history, paleontology, and religion.

I'm not particularly passionate about anything. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go stay up all night finishing my Yggdrasill from Tales of Symphonia cosplay that I procrastinated on because I've been working on my 30th playthrough of Tales of Symphonia in order to get the best title for Raine in NG+ speedruns. I'll try to find time to moisturize my Trunks tattoo in between essays on Goku's parenting while I'm at it.

Being a musician and artist both used to be important to me, I used to look forward to a lot of muscians' output and there was a kind of logical framework for the industry that has become very fractured and scattered. I don't know what I want now, but it would be really nice to have an interest in something, to have more in common with others beside the same old. Lately I'm just watching videos and stuff online, occasionally playing video/computer games.

I'm pretty into the aquarium hobby. I have a 45 gallon planted tank and a 20-gallon aquatic frog tank. My next step is transferring both into a 75-gallon breeder tank and really going for a nice nature aquascape. I used to keep pigeons as a hobby but when I moved I couldn't bring them with me so I found some coups for them to go too and that was that.

I do like video games. (obviously) Recently been really into anime and all that. I really like going to the gym that's always been a passion of mine. I was a swimmer most of my life, now I like a light swim and lifting. Fishing in the summer is a big hobby of mine. Also, I like to take trips mid-February to go after Cod in the ocean off Montauk.

I collect those Funko Pops. I try to get all from each anime series I'm watching. Love cars and bikes. ATVs have always been my toy of choice though. Idk I have so many weird hobbies and interests this is just a small snapshot. I'm part of a beer club. We host meetings in each others house use membership dues on food and flights to try. Meet once a month, it's a blast.
I also like trying different craft beers.

A man of class this one.

Passion? Mostly cooking, and also pairing food with beer and wine.
Hobbies? Just about anything gaming, also crafting.

I miss performing music though. augh
