How much time per week do you spend playing games?

Since I started working on this page for everything video games, I play way too much, but then again I do this for a purpose. I think there is a purpose to all this besides having fun. How much gameplay is way too much, well it isn’t always games I think it’s more of being in front of the computer or TV too much in general.

I would have to say I average at least 25 hours a week of gaming and at least that much more writing so  that’s way too much time in front of the computer. To me that isn’t as much as I used to play. There was a time when I played at least 6-7 hours a day and that was even more on a day off.

Yeah I had a problem then, not enough hours in the day for one thing. Now I try to spread out my gaming sessions. I get up and get some exercise a lot more than I used too.

Aldren has written a good article on time management for games and how to take full advantage of it online games with over doing it. Read his article Here

If you do game please don’t over game, get up from your screen eat something, get out of the house with your friends, and but above all please take care of yourself.

We all love games but first and foremost you need to make sure you stay healthy. Today it so easy to have an unhealthy lifestyle.

    I wondered this too recently, and my estimate for myself would be about 15 hours of gaming a week.

    at least 2 hours a day, and probably 4-6 hours on weekends if I’m free. So that equates to about 20 hours approximate a week, +- 1-2 hours.

    My average gaming time per week is around the 10-15 hour mark. I mostly enjoy this hobby during the weekends.As you mentioned, time management is key here especially if you have several other hobbies.

    I agree. I was once a hardcore grinder in an MMORPG I am playing, but now I balance it by doing chores and taking a walk for a fresh air outdoors.

    Trust me, you don’t want to feel vegetative and stagnant.

    A day I might get an hour, maybe two if I’m really lucky. Work, life and friends keep me from too much gaming a lot. Though I had a break for July last week and spent at least 5 hours a day playing when I wasn’t out walking or with friends

    10 hours per week or something around that. These 10 hours are mostly used playing mobile games (I’m playing Pocket League Story 2 atm) or some little Indie game (like Don’t Starve).
