    Default How many hours a week do you spend gaming?

    We'd all like a bit more time away from our responsibilities and sat at our consoles/desktops. How often do you spend gaming at the minute per week?

    Any time I get is precious so I have to make the most of it. How about you lovely people?

    Depends on what I'm playing and how much I'm distracted from writing and other things. Right now Im playing DQVII so of course I am VERY MUCH sucked in, so I'd say it's about 10-20 hours per week.

    Not THAT many actually, a lot more is spent idly surfing the web. Still, since right now I'm back in Warcraft III mood and I spend about 3-4 hours on it every other day, adding onto that time spent playing Touhou, I'd estimate around 35 hours a week.

    18 hours-ish. Playing an MMO though, if I'm not careful I can get way, waaay more.

    2-5 hours I'd say. I'm on the computer more than Bri wold like but, I not really ever playing a game anymore or doing much of anything important for that matter. I'm usually just on Reddit reading in the Magic: The Gathering subs. If I am playing it's usually a game or two of MTG online during the week and maybe an hour or two of playing a FF on the weekend.

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

    Probably 30-35ish, I'm sure it would be a lot more if I wasn't stuck at work all the time. There was that time I got super obsessed with TES and averaged 50 hours per week for about a month (got the Steam screenshots to prove it), that was a great month.

    I was probably around 50 hours each week the past couple between Dragon Quest and streaming some Broforce. I clicked 30-50 because sometimes work gets in the way of breaking 50, though many weeks it is over 50.

    I did some counting and realized that at just 3 hours day, that breaks 21 hours a week. And I play at least five. So yeah, 35-ish hours is more accurate. Pretty much double what I guessed earlier.

    Not nearly enough. Perhaps 5-10 hours a week.

    Between 30 and 70 hours depending on my mood and what's going on in the gaming world. I probably average just over 50. Notably less when I'm binging on a TV series, doing lots of work for whatever reason, people are visiting, there's some good sport on TV or uhm. Or basically if there's anything else I feel like doing. But yeah, my idle time is generally spent in FFXIV, which is technically gaming even though most of the stuff I do in FFXIV is not very 'intensive' like most single player games or online FPS/MOBAs are.

    I have no life you guys.

    5 hours most nights after work, pretty much the entire day both weekend days - probably easily nearing 60 hours a week.

    I really am not telling lies when I say I have no life.

    Even though I love gaming still, I barely have time and when I do it's mostly towards FFXIV. I'm hoping to get time for FFXV when it's released, though.
