    Gaming is one of my primary forms of personal entertainment. I'd say 15-20 hours a week is typical for me. But not unusual to put in an 8-hour stint on a weekend day.

    You ever have that moment when at 8 pm you tell yourself you're going to shut Civ 5 off at 10 pm, and then its somehow midnight?

    I play PC games for 1hrs if I have enough time. By the way, the original post's picture, it looks like a cockpit for robot for me but I want to know what kind of the controller is it ( which locate on the right side that have 6 swithes).

    It is really hard for me to average this. Like at the moment I am constantly playing New Vegas on PC... however sometimes I get dry spells in my gaming where I am literally playing like 5 hours or less a week.

    Far too much...
    Average 10 - 12 hours a month.

    Right now... I'm in my 3rd week of unemployment. I'm pretty much playing games too much. I'm running out of gaming stamina but I've done 10 hours in a day pretty easily.

    Not as much as I've played before. Now roughly 10 hours / week - best case scenario. I'm pretty busy preparing the house for winter...hopefully after that I will catch up and enjoy the games I like.

    I'm still finishing up my undergrad, so the time I spend is heavily dependent on how much work I get. Some weeks I'll play an hour or two, other weeks will be several hours.

    Now-a-days I average about 2hrs a month. 2-3 years ago I would play 18+hrs a day. MMO grinding fest, can't say I miss those days. FFXI was my timesink and it sure was a huge timesink at that.

    I play 1-2 hours a day, but this monday I begin working in a new job, so, this should probably affect the time is spend on games.

    Hmm, well I would say about 10 hours a week. I have a girlfriend, and a job, so yeah, those two things keep me busy.

    But even if I was single and unemployed, I would probably still play the same. I like games, but if the games aren't that good (or don't have much replay value), I'm very likely to just delete them.

    Probably less than 9-10hrs a week on average. Not many games grab my attention...or hold it.
    At the moment the average is creeping up since I'm playing through the Narodnaya Solianka mod for STALKER:SHOC. The fact that it is so huge (includes all the maps from SHOC, CS and CoP as well as the Labyrinth, Dead City, ATP, Undiscovered Country, Forgotten Forest etc.), an additional two main storylines and around 200 additional quests (some very sophisticated and interdependant),....in addition to the not-fully completed translation, makes for a very challenging gaming experience that on many occasions requires backtracking to earlier savegames- which usually means extended gaming just to get back to the point where you started- albeit without the storyline lockouts from the previous run through.
