Is alekhine's defence even worth playing?

I do not get why people play alekhine's defence. To me it seems like black gets their knkght kicked around and white gets a center.

After the moves:1. e4Nf62. e5Nd53. d4d64. c4Nb65. f4 what has black gained? A weak kingside? A loss of tempo? Please tell me why people play this position.
