Gaming is not - and never will be - a "job". Don't normalise the casual use of work. If PD want you to work, they need to employ you
There are people who get paid for playing video games so I hate to break it to you but it absolutely can be a job. And if it is indeed the “casual use” of work then it has, by definition, already been normalized. There are many uses of the word work, including in physics, so that’s not going to change to fit your extremely narrow definition. Yes you “work” in the game and you get “paid” in digital cars. That’s how most racing games work (look another usage that isn’t yours!), especially this one that wants to be realistic in, I would agree, several obnoxious ways.
