Hey guys! What hour of the day do you prefer to play?

Myself, I prefer to play in the middle of the night, as it offers less distractions! Usually I can only do that on weekends, but I'm lucky enough to start late at work on Wednesdays, so Tuesday nights can be almost as bad! :)

I love to play games and even work during the night, I guess its just the feeling that the entire country is sleeping and no one can disturb me.
Also, because of timezones its easier for me to find people to play online games with during the night.

I usually play in the evenings. Anything I have to do for that day, I try to get done during the daytime to free up my evenings.

I like evening gaming. Unless I've been conditioned to staying up real late for quite some time, I play like utter crap past like 10:00PM XD

Either the evening or later at night.

Playing to much games during the day makes feel guilty, makes me think i could be doing something more productive.

In the evening, between 5 and 8 (not solidly, just anywhere between those times). That's when I tend to be most focused for console gaming. Handheld, I tend to play randomly during the day.

I like the evening because there's less eye strain watching a screen when daylight is coming through the windows (if it's sunny, you should be outside anyway).  However, one thing that upsets me about midnight gaming is that I can't crank the subwoofer without the neighbors getting pissed off.

I used to play late at night before i got a j.o.b.

Since i get up at 5:30 and get home at 6 all my gaming falls between 6-11 pm.

Whenever I have free time usually, but usually is later at night, like 1 am or later...then I get on a really odd sleep schedule...which is amazing when you have to get up for work :\

I play after 10 pm to about 2 am on weekdays.  I don't mind the sleep deprivation much.


On the weekends, I usually play all evening.

LOL i knew this topic would turn into a "o god is that a real girl"  topic.  Get a life boys go out of your house and meet a girl that lives near you instead of trying to meet a girl that lives in a different time zone.

I mostly play games at night, but if i have the time i play them when ever.

During the night, mostly.

I just feel more comfortable at night, when there aren't going to be any distractions, and I can let loose on vent with my friends.

That, and my WoW guild is mainly on the eastern hemisphere, so to raid I have to go at 1am..

Well it comes with attitude and etiquette as well, and frankly, calling someone out like that is not very gentlemanly.

Looks aside, I usually play in the evening after dinner if there's nothing on TV to watch. 

Especially if my girlfriend is busy blogging or studying or whatever else she might be up to.

My game time is going to seriously hurt now that Sarah Connor Chronicles, Heroes, House, and other shows are back on. Not to mention football.

I play games any time of the day, but my favorite time is the night. I guess it's because I've always been a night guy, preferring to do things at night rather than doing it during the day.

Mine varies quite a bit, but when I'm doing a normal college term I usually play in the evenings on weekdays and play mornings/afternoons on weekends.
