    I'll flip flop between not at all to 5-10 hours a day depending on my mood, my workload, the phase of the moon, and other various unknown factors.

    It used to be around 20-30 for me, but anymore it's an hour or two on the weekend when I find the time and if I feel like it. The obsession has mostly worn off for me. Though my brothers and I have been known to go 10 hours straight playing Lord of the Rings Online.

    Still play SOF2 at least an hour a night, and play WOW, BC2 and will be playing Black Ops when it is released, so about say 20 hrs a week
     
  7. Around 14-20 hours a week
     
  8. I play games on Facebook (Frontierville and Farmville) every single day. They are always freezing and stalling because they require so much from a computer. It's starting to be too aggravating to play.

    Nowadays I spend anywhere from 1/2 an hour to 4 hours max. I used to be able to do alot more, but i've gotten too inactive and I can't sit around as much as before.

    Gaming seemed to be my life in college, but now that I am out....not any more. I actually don't think I've played an online game in quite a VERY long time. Oh well, life changes and other things take precedence. Not a big deal, just move on.
     
  13. My mate plays 5 hours A DAY barely leaves his room
    I play 2hrs a day

    I get about 26 hours a week on average, playing video games. Lately, it's been mostly PC gaming because of Fallout New Vegas.
     
  15. between 2-4 hours a night or 14-28 hours a week. With a gf and full time job. I spend even more time watching streams for example starcraft 2 gsl tournament which can take upto 4 hours a night during the season.
     
  16. Haha, I hate saying this but its probably around 30 to 40 hours per week, if not more. I straight nerd out for a while but somehow maintain a healthy relationship with my girlfriend, work and go to college full time.
     
  17. No one can really bash gamers for playing less than 4 hours a night when the average american watches 4 hours of a tv a night. I'd much rather by gaming uses the brain alot more.

    Average week...
    2hrs of facebook flash games after work (14), Mass Effect 2 or Gears of War replay for another 3, PnP D&D on saturday (about 10hrs). so, um... 30ish hours.
    Wow, looks like gaming is my other job. However, I do accomplish menial household tasks (dinner, laundry, time with the spouse, etc) between apps and work too...
    No wonder I'm always tired, gonna have to cut back on the menial tasks and get more sleep.

    My apps (cafe world & castle age) have been slow too. I am beginning to think is a network speed issue with facebook as my wife plays on her system next to me and we both experience the lag of facebook on different games. Keep in mind that our systems are custom built gaming machines that play City of Heroes, Mass Effect and others with no issue.
