It depends really on if I've recently gotten a game that pulls me in. During those times I'll pull 6+ on week days and definitely over 8 on weekends. But during lulls like right now it's 0-4.

I'll probably play more come this fall, since that's when they're releasing everything.



Everyday? Jesus, go outside every once in a while...



4 is fine, I'd say that 2-3 is average, but 4 isn't really pushing it. When you play for around 6+ a day... that's too much. 1 quarter of your day wasted.

Some people like doing things for longer periods of time than you. Go figure rolleyes.gif

It's not time wasted if it's time enjoyed.

Depends on what I am doing that day and what game I am playing. Minecraft I have spent 10+ hours playing it.

I usually manage to get at least an hour in a day... I find that with work and other factors sucking motivations for things out of me, all I do is sleep, work, eat, and chat for my off hours. If I'm lucky, I can sneak (and by sneak, I mean pull it out and play in wide open. During lunch, EVERYONE is messing with their cellphones or whatnot) in a round of Plants Versus Zombies while at work on my iPod during lunch.

Since I'm currently working a part time job [20 hours a week] I play less than 1 hour a day, when I start college for my IT career I probably won't get on the computer for anything other than studying.

Steam rating: 3.0 "9.3 hrs past 2 weeks"

Perhaps when BF3 is released that will change for a little while. smile.gif

It varies day to day but anywhere from four to twelve hours. At least while I've got some good material. Playing through The Witcher series and the Mass Effect series right now. And, just for the record, I'll choose real life activities over gaming any day tongue.gif

Varies between seasons. During the school seasons, I'd say around 2-4 hours. During school breaks, I'd say around 6-7 hours for the first half and 2 hours for the second half. smile.gif

1 hour to 6 hours of gaming. On my computer all day. It's very sad frown.gif

Whenever I feel like calling a friend or a friend feels like calling me I'll be out for the whole day though..

Just need more friends lol, 3 and they're all guys..

38 hours past 2 weeks, which is like almost 3 a day. 37 of these hours on FO:NV. Sometimes way more, it really depends.. I spend a lot of time researching and writing, but, I don't sleep as much as I should, so late night game sessions happen often. And with friends staying for 4+ days at a time, we don't ever really sit down and game, I like to suck up all the time I can.

Plus I've started working out again when i can, so, that takes up time.

In the past year or two, maybe an hour or two a day. I've had a few 4-6+ hour sessions lately now that I've gotten into Minecraft though.

I don't spend long stretches of time gaming. If I'm playing a single player game I take a break every hour or two to check a few websites, maybe get a drink or something. Once Battlefield 3 and Skyrim drop, I expect to be glued to my PC again smile.gif
