5-6 hours a day?

#4 Posted by 49th (2691 posts) -

Usually about 2 hours with a multiplayer game, then sometimes 1 or 2 hours with other games.

#5 Posted by Demoskinos (14562 posts) -

About 5-6 a day unless I get the chance to hang out with my friends which is a rare thing now days since they are both married. I hate TV so gaming and fucking around on the internet are usually my entertainment for the night after work.

#6 Posted by Jams (2959 posts) -

The times I play really jump around. Some times it can be 15 minutes and another it can be 8 hours. Then again I've never kept count so I really have no idea how long my play sessions are.

#7 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2718 posts) -

Depends on the game. Usually around 2-3 hours a day.

#8 Posted by Video_Game_King (36012 posts) -

Several days, actually.

#9 Posted by Hector (3356 posts) -

Usually about 3 hours a day. During weekend maybe up to 5 hours.

#10 Posted by SJSchmidt93 (4884 posts) -

I will go weeks where I play a game 8 hours a day every day, and I will go weeks where I don't play any game at all for any amount of time.

What he said.

It depends on how fast I get bored, sometimes you can lose track of time easily if you are playing a multiplayer game. So I would say around 5 hours.

Edit: I don't play daily, I barely play once a week. So, when I do play, I play lots of hours just because I haven't played in a long time.

#13 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

A couple of hours. I phase in and out when it comes to videogames.

#14 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

How many hours do you spend making polls a day?

#15 Posted by D0tti (786 posts) -

It depends on how much freetime I have, what game and how fast I get bored during that playtime. But I can probably squeese in at least 5hours of gaming every day.

#16 Posted by JasonR86 (9608 posts) -

On average probably 3-4 hours.

#17 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

How in the hell are some of you playing for 6 hours a day? Have you never been outside? That's insane, man.

#18 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

That's not how the "larger than" symbols work.

I spend around 5-6 hours playing games, on average, a day.

#19 Posted by frankfartmouth (1016 posts) -

I play something online for at least an hour or two a day. My total hours per day go way up when I have a good single player game going, which I don't right now. Beginning with Skyrim in the fall, then moving onto Arkham City, then L.A. Noire, and finishing with Mass Effect 3 recently, I've put enough time in over the past few months. I need to get some shit done for a little while.

#20 Posted by Elyk247 (366 posts) -

Get home from school, usually go running for 45 minutes, but then I play just about until the good t.v. starts. Then if I'm not too tired I play a little more.

#21 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

In the last 13 hours I've played 8 hours of Max Payne 3. I haven't played so consistently in a long while.

About to start it myself. I'm assuming you are enjoying it then?

#23 Posted by BigChickenDinner (766 posts) -

I find an extreme lack of the option

"I have no job, and I am currently mooching off the family"

Lemme just leave the thread with this, I can't put a number on the amount I play daily.

@laserbolts It is neither demonstrable or quantifiable. It's all just a blur, ITS MADNESS!!!! ITS

A 50 second video of my gameplay that I recorded earlier today: 
Clearing a 7-man room in less than a minute without using cover. God bless high sensitivity mice!
#27 Posted by Cyrus_Saren (530 posts) -

5 hours during weekends. Less during the weekdays. Used to be more but since I have a daughter now...

You used cover. Never stop shoot dodging.

#29 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -
@Pie:  Well when the game forcibly puts you in cover at the beginning of a fight with 2 guys a couple of feet away from you, you cant really not use the cover you've been cornered into.

Just shootdodge from the cover into the two guys

Yep, my working day ends at about 7PM and I play the rest of my time til about midnight. I start work at 8AM, so I see it as a balanced schedule.

#32 Posted by DoctorDanger99 (686 posts) -

some days i spend all day on a game. somtimes i go a week without playing much.

#33 Posted by believer258 (11635 posts) -

My gaming hours vary wildly but the average is ~2 hours per day on weekdays and ~4 on weekend days.

Keep in mind that sometimes that number will be as little as 10 minutes or as big as 8 or more hours, but both of those are fairly rare and getting rarer.

#34 Posted by RedCream (704 posts) -

It depends on the schedule and mood really. I can go on a two day straight (8 hours each) gaming if the game is gold. Otherwise I'll probably try my best to play at least an hour so that I can advance through the game. I also usually focus on one game at a time so the story won't be lost on me.

#35 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

8+

Unemployment makes it so.

#36 Posted by Gradev (43 posts) -

2-3 hours during weekdays, 8+ hours at the weekends

#37 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

I rarely play games, like maybe two a year (normally a big RPG) like the first week Skyrim and Diablo III came out I played probably 8 hours a day when I didn't work. Normal weeks though it's maybe an hour a day.

#38 Posted by Dagbiker (6939 posts) -

Until im not having fun

#39 Posted by Karyyk (6 posts) -

I try to get a couple of hours in a day, more or less (usually less; more on weekends). I'm an old guy with babies now, so I don't have the abundance of spare time that I once did.

#40 Posted by wemibelec90 (1552 posts) -

I have way more free time on my hands then I deserve so sometimes I can get upwards of 8-10 hours a day in. Lately, I've been busy with other things and out of games that I want to play so it's gone way down. Currently waiting on Lollipop Chainsaw for something to play.

#41 Edited by Zekhariah (697 posts) -

I sometimes manage a couple hours / day. No kiddies yet, so I'm a bit scared of what will occur when that comes along.

If I am into something (like just getting a x360 and halo 3 for this month) bad things happen to my weekends.

#42 Posted by NuDimon (168 posts) -

Quite often less then 1 h. Then again I do have some 18 h+ sessions as well from time to time. :p

#43 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

about 2 hours a day. it also depends on how i feel and if i am enjoying the game.

#44 Posted by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -

It really depends. Work, if I have a new game, if I'm tired. It just depends for me.

#45 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

Just about two hours. I'm usually busy doing other things.

#46 Posted by Tireyo (6409 posts) -

Until I remember to eat or do something important. I'm on hiatus right now, so it's been close to 1 - 2 hours a week.

#47 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

Probably about 3. Some days its way less (although even in sparse times, I play games at least 1 or 2 days a week) and some days it's way more.

#48 Posted by WINDWAKER1 (49 posts) -

On a weekday I'll play an hour max. Weekends maybe 3 a day, but I play at night so it's usually like 11-1 or 2 (I'm in college though so it's a lot more acceptable haha)

#49 Posted by TobbRobb (4579 posts) -

Dunno, I'm really inconsistent. Even if I'm home doing nothing for a week, I might not play a game at all. And sometimes I'll play like 15h the same day, no matter what happens the day after.

For example, I think I got 3h of game time down today, none yesterday and like 12 or more Sunday. Mind, I've been home without responsibility these past days.
