    I used to play like 8-12 hours a day, but have since dropped down to--at best-- 5-8 hours a week. I just don't have the time for it inbetween apartment hunting and spending time with my girlfriend. If she had her computer still (her brother stole it >.>) I'd probably get more done as she would be able to play at the same time or at least while I am.

    For the last month or so i haven't been gaming much at all actually but usually i game 4 - 8 hours a day between my PC & PS3.

    I find i need to take break's every so often otherwise the monotony get's to me, i don't spend big $$$ on lot's of game's like some do so i guess that has something to do with it :confused: Between my PC & PS3 i think i have about 30 maybe 40 game's :eek:

    I'm looking forward to this year's release of Max Payne 3 & Far Cry 3 so i'll be prolly get back to serious frag time when i get those installed :)

    Used to be a hardcore gamer, but now I spend more time browsing various forums, checking out tech news and rumors, etc.

    10 to 14 hours a day. Less if I'm in class for obvious reasons.

    Casual pc gamer, I can play hours in a row or I can leave all the games for year or more. It's no more fun like it was in the 90s. I don't like new titles and don't want to switch to consoles either. Being busy with science and tech stuff is far more interesting.

    For me it depends on the game. If I like it, I won't stop playing it till it's done.

    But I do think I've spent to much for how much I play.

    He told you, every single day of his life.

    So do the math, 24 hrs in a day, 7 days in a week, 4 weeks in a month, 12 months in a year = a shit load of gaming lol

    :D

    For me, I get out of work every night around 11ish-12. So i'll probably play for 3-4 hrs before I have to wake up in the morning.

    About 4 hours a week these days unless a friend hits me up for a game of Arma 2 then could be playing 1 to a few days on a domination map or lots of missions.

    Sad to hurry my life up but cannot wait till 3rd Q for Arma 3 HA!. Although getting some quality RC time in with my daughter though :). Although she just as willing to play Arma 2 as well but have visions of child services coming knocking about her talking about blowing people up or some thing..m Then again speeding down the side street is not good either lol.

    EDIT: if they did not mess up GR 2 so many times i be playing in tournaments.

    funny thread! When a game is new and I have time I can play quite some hours during a week or so. In the past I have played WWII Online for nights and days nearly non stop, lol

    Now, the less I play the less I need to... and if I can, I always start again as a 'nubile' because I forget all the tricks and secrets, even the keyboard config. But anyway I don't want to end up being a hardcore gamer and a softcore disposable husband, lol.

    It depends if I'm playing a game currently. When I was playing Kingdoms of Amalur I played a lot but normally less than two hours a day I think. Good games are getting rarer imo.

    Having a daughter makes it difficult to game like I used to, so when ever I can. Before she came around I played games at least 25-30 hours a week.

    I only play when I have spare time, but I'm so hard-core that if my heart stops while playing they have to use a jackhammer to restart it instead of a defibrillator. :D
