On average, how many hours in a day do you spend playing video games? 
 
I do not really get much time to play video games on weekdays, as I work full time, but I get a few hours in here and there. On weekend I spend 8-14 hours playing games...But that is probbaly due to the fact I don't get to play them on weekdays, oh and cause I'm a total cool dude 8) 
 
You?

Are you single? That pretty much used to sound like me before I had my gf move in with me. 
 
Now I'm probably 5 hours to 7 hours a week maximum. Usually 60 minutes a day or less due to being so damn busy. Hopefully I can increase that over time though.

#3 Posted by KarlPilkington (2731 posts) -

About an hour on average, don't play much on the weekdays.

#4 Posted by canucks23 (1087 posts) -

Used to play a lot. Now about 7ish hours a week is the max i'll play games.

#5 Posted by dancinginfernal (474 posts) -

Quite a lot. 
 
And I mean, a lot. 
 
It consumes most of my unspent time. So, around 24 hours a week.

#6 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

I have a bad habit of playing a game until completion in one sitting because I'm impatient. Other days I don't game at all. Mostly 10 hours a week.

@UnlivedPhalanx:

#8 Posted by one_2nd (2359 posts) -

i don't really go on to play games anymore, it's more i go on to talk to my friends. Most of the time i go on i'm sitting at menus or the dashboard. but yeah, a couple hours a day i guess. 

#9 Posted by Niall_Sg1 (362 posts) -

The only games I seem to play atm are DS games..I just can't be bothered to start a game where I know I'm gonna have to sink a lot of time into.  I've got like 50 steam games to get into from this Christmas sale but I just can't be bothered...I'm to lazy to play games :( 

#10 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

i would say about 17 hours or more. i usually play during the week because there isn't anything on. i use to play a lot more when i use to play wow though.

#11 Posted by SSully (4192 posts) -

During the week?? 3 -5 hours. And during the weekend it depends. Usually 4-5 hours total, but this weekend I didn't have shit to do so i got like 10 hours in, which is the most I have played on a weekend in a long time, it was soooooo good. 

#12 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

On average I play zero hours on the Weekdays(Except for Fridays when I play later on in the night.) 
 On Weekends It can be 5-6 hours depending on how much I have to do.

#13 Edited by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

Working fulltime. On weekdays I'm happy if I can squeeze in 2-3 hours per evening. Weekends (if I'm not out drinking) I can easily put down 6-8 hours per day.
 
And my girlfriend is fine with that!

#14 Posted by DrPockets000 (2859 posts) -

If I'm lucky, less than two hours a day if at all.

#15 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

Weekdays I play like 2-4 hours, mostly pc stuff next to social stuff and work.
Weekends I play as much as I can without ignoring basic stuff like groceries/social coffee drinking and what not.

#16 Posted by ShockD (2401 posts) -

It depends really. I'd give it 3 hours average.

#17 Posted by RoboRobb (1052 posts) -

On a good day, three hours maybe? But usually, around an hour. Bad times..

#18 Posted by csl316 (8693 posts) -

some weeks i don't play anything, some i go like 15 hours.  i dunno, i got too much else going on to stay consistent.

#19 Posted by nick_verissimo (1385 posts) -

Normally, I play about 1-2 hours, but on weekends if I've got little to do, I'll play between 3-4 hours each day.

#20 Posted by lazyartist (61 posts) -

at least 4 hours a day

#21 Posted by Kjellm87 (1728 posts) -

#23 Posted by AckbarTheGreat (419 posts) -

Whenever I have spare time. So it usually varies.

that nothing, I average atleast 8 hours a day ^_^
#26 Posted by rargy (437 posts) -

Probably 5 hours max.   
Either one game that i really like or multiple games that i switch out after an hour with each.

#27 Posted by Tsoglani (585 posts) -

Usually after work or study, I try to game for a couple of hours a day; that is when I'm not flat out busy. I use the weekends as my gaming time, and then I could spend anywhere from 4 to 10 hours on Saturdays/Sundays.

#28 Posted by Enigma777 (6073 posts) -

Too many

I never said it was a good guess. I'm just saying it's at least that.

#33 Posted by destruktive (1069 posts) -

#34 Posted by StriderNo9 (1092 posts) -

These days I'm playing like 2 hours of gaming during the week days and on weekends I play I play like 5 to 6 hours a day. 

#35 Posted by Dick_Mohawk (378 posts) -

While work is quiet...a whole bucket load on my 360, mainly red dead online and Forza 3 with Mass effect 2 and Assassins Creed 2 still to be played. Maybe 30 hours plus a week.

#36 Edited by TheChaos (1158 posts) -

Depends on the game. 
If it's really good then I usually power-game it up to 10-12 hours a day till I beat it. 
If it's just "okay" then about 5 hours, on and off.

#37 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

Recently only about a half-hour of CS every night. I usually get a good 20-25 hours in a week though. This can vary wildly depending on time constraints and what games I have on the go.

#38 Posted by MisterMouse (3554 posts) -

everyday maybe 30 minutes... its comes in spurts at time during a week I will play video games more, but I have been pretty busy recently and havent been able to do to much game playing. (still have some games I need to finish, and some other ones I need to start.)

#39 Posted by Killroycantkill (1406 posts) -

Since I don't watch television all my entertainment is videogames. Wouldn't be a surprised if it was like 5 hours a day or more. That is when I don't have homework.

#40 Posted by MisterDunlap (245 posts) -

I used to play 4-7 hours a day, but then I got a girlfriend, and that dropped to about 2 hours a day. Now my girlfriend and I game together, making the average total about 4-5 hours a day on average. Yes I calculated this beforehand. Don't judge me.

#41 Posted by JJOR64 (18995 posts) -

It all depends if I got a new game or not.  Usually a couple hours a day.  Not as much as I used to.  Used to play games practicably all day when I was a kid.

#42 Posted by Hourai (2795 posts) -

3 ish.

#43 Posted by Dimsey (954 posts) -

About 2-4 hours a day, though much longer on weekends.

#44 Posted by Fleppie (200 posts) -

Good to hear that I am normal. I usually can't get more than an hour a day. 5-7 hours a week and much less if it's a busy time at work. 

#45 Posted by frankfartmouth (1018 posts) -

Over the past year, an obscene amount. Absolutely obscene. Like more than when I was 10, 11, and 12 years old combined. I was put on disability and was pretty sick, so fuck it. I'm about to go back to work now, and while I'm very happy to be doing better and getting back out there, I must admit I'll miss being able to play video games literally all day, every day, and get away with it. It got old sometimes, but overall, it was pretty fucking awesome. 

#46 Edited by Meltac (2002 posts) -

The last couple of weeks I've only been playing 2-4 hours in the whole week.

#47 Posted by Badhands (399 posts) -

I normally dont actually play games that often recently, whenever I do get into a game I will just stay up late and play like 6-7 hours a couple of days in a row to beat it.

#49 Posted by wewantsthering (1567 posts) -

Between 0-1 hours. 6-12 hours if a new Valve or Double Fine game is out.
