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.

Music is cool in general, but performing it

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.
