    I mostly focus on one. I prefer pouring all my attention on one thing at a time, getting that done, and then moving on. There are exceptions of course, but that's generally how it works best for me.

    I've been getting into a bad habit of starting a load of games and not finishing them so I've become more ruthless now. I only play one game on any given system. Currently it is

    PS4: The Last of Us - Survivor Difficulty
    PS Vita: FFII
    Wii U: Mario Kart 8

    I do but not often. I might have 3 games on the go. Or I may have one. It just depends on my mood. (Keepers Nutty can you sound more confusing.)

    Don't, the more I think about it, the more I worry about myself sometimes.

    I tend to have 2 - 3 on the go at once:

    - Dragon Age: Inquisition (on the PS4, as opposed to Mr. Carny's 360. It's so much better)
    - Tales of Xillia
    - Shin Megami Tensei: IV

    I'm about halfway through SMT, but I'm still in the early stages of the other two games. So it'll be like this for awhile.

    I worked it up to two these days. One for my biweekly video game review, and the second on handheld for when I'm on the toilet.

    What? It takes a while to go number 2. I need something to do.

    one or two.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Far too many... 4+
    I've tried to limit myself, and I' happy to say I have 'too many games' nowdays...

    One MMO: FFXIV
    One singleplayer game.
    And as few competitive games as possible: Blazblue, DoA5
    Thought atm I've been meaning to get back into Heroes of the Storm and have a crapload of shorter games in my backlog, oh man.

    Considering I also go for readable/watchable media at night...yeah I'm kind of juggling a lot of hobbies.
    For better or worse, to be a fan of Final Fantasy is to witness history in the making.

    Me too! Focus solely on one and then move no to another when completed/bored/frustrated enough.

    Way too many at a time. I think I'm currently playing 6 different RPGs split between my PC, tablet and phone. I tend to stop and start games depending on my mood.

    Competitive games are the bane of my productivity.

    I try to limit myself to one or two games at a time but it can be tricky. And one is more than enough to be obsessed with.

    4-5 is probably the most accurate. Always a couple multiplayer, sometimes casually a free MMO of some kind, and usually some kind of short/quick game and a long/enormous game.
