    I hardly game, and hardly talk about gaming...
    I do love hardware!

    I definitely spend more time gaming than talking about gaming, as on TPU I mostly talk about hardware.

    I spend more time on TPU in general (moderating, answering questions, etc.), but I get in more hours gaming than talking specifically about it.

    LOL, good question! When I was a PC gamer I used to spend more time upgrading/tweaking/benching than I did playing games :D

    I spend more time gaming, although when im not gaming I got 3 FaceBook game tabs open followed by TPU in the 4th tab. I prefer to talk about hardware or WCG then gaming tho when posting on the forums :D

    Well considering I'm on and off TPU all day at work I picked the second option. Though my PCs are never really "done" and loop maintenance etc often gets too long ignored because what time I do have with it I just want to game.

    I definitely spend more time gaming than talk about games, but on the other hand, I do a lot of other stuff in TPU too, and that takes up more time than gaming I believe.

    Sadly I spend more time reading about games and benchmarking them than actually playing them. Apart from my favorites like my current Fallout:NV.

    Actually I realized this a long time ago, and am trying to make an effort to spend more time gaming than reading about hardware/software performance vis-a-vis the game on the net.
    Problem is that I enjoy doing both...

    Nothing wrong with that, you have plenty of good casters from Day9 to Husky to Artosis. Plus, I always feel that I am a shitty player whenever I play :/

    This^

    1)I spent more time gaming, than talking about it.

    2)I spent more time checking hundreds of mods, modding game, than actually enjoying gameplay of it.

    Well I'm talking recently here because I am a bit more of a casual gamer at the moment.

    I spent more time tweaking a game and talking about it than playing it.


    But overall

    I game more than I talk on forums or IRL which is why my breath starts to go bad and I have to brush my teeth 3-4 times a day :laugh:
