#1 Posted by sam-jay (26 posts) -

after a long hectic day nothing i like the most than spending an hour playing video games, i think that's very relaxing, but the problem is i don't have that much time... i barely spend 4 hours a week.

I'd say around 2-5 hours a week depending on other stuff I have. It's been rainy this week so I may play more

Probably around 10 hours a week on average.

As a university student it varies a lot, some days it can be from i wake up in the morning until late when there isn't a class or lecture and real life permits it. and some times it can be weeks without ever touching a game, simply because life is busy.

As I am unemployed right now, I think I spend around 20 hours a week on gaming. Otherwise it would be around 8 hours.

Yes I was unemployed from early February up until last week and I seemed to spend so much more time on gaming, as it was my best form of entertainment and at times I simply had nothing else to do! But now I'm back to work I obviously don't spend too much time gaming. I play most days though as I like to wind down for an hour or so playing a game before I go to bed.

Yeah, gaming is great to empty your head and relax. Although being umemployed and gaming a lot does make me suffer from 'gamer regret'. I remember as a student I wouldn't feel as guilty about gaming for hours on end...

Around 10-12 hours. I play less during the summer because im outside more.

Maybe like 0-3 hrs. Some weeks I have more time than others, so it varies.

Around 10-16 I think, depends how busy my weekend is. I'll usually fit in a few hours most nights.

The past couple of weeks I haven't touched anything. It just doesn't sound appealing to me. Maybe towards the end of May I will jump back in. I was in the middle of Bravely Default, and then got sick over spring break and haven't had much desire to play anything after. I feel as though I've undergone aversive conditioning because of it as silly as that sounds. I also just have a ton of work that I should be doing instead for upcoming exams.

Depends on whether I'm at work or not. Right now I'm a full-time student so I have a good deal more time than when I had when I was employed recently. I sometimes went a full week or more without turning anything on due to a busy work schedule. If I did'nt have at least 2-3 hours free, I wouldn't bother trying to play anything.

Right now, though, I usually average about 10-20 hours a week. I have been doing a good job of completing work ahead of time for my current courses, so that's why I've been able to put in 80+ hours of Dark Souls II over the past couple of weeks.

3-6.

Same here, it varies. Some weeks I will have a match or two on Fifa or Counter Strike before work and then have Saturday to do some gaming. Other weeks I will watch TV or do something else after doing jobs around the house. It varies and thus I can not give a solid amount of time. On average more than one hour per week but probably less than 20. I work full time so that affects it and when I get holidays I tend to do gaming of an evening or whenever I don't have anything else on.

This is a common question on game boards like this one. I'd like to know how many hours a week people spend watching tv, and how many hours per week they spend on browsing the net.

Depends on how much i work and how many reports i have to deliver. Anything from 10-40 hours i would say

More than I care to admit, though it ranges quite a bit depending on what I'm playing or how much I really feel like playing.

I do a little too much gaming but that's cause I don't have class tell next Tue and I spend all of my free time ether gaming, here on GS or watching Netflix.

Way too much. I have a problem. At least it's not denial. Probably 25-30. With school and work full time as well. I should really sleep more.

#23 Posted by withe1982 (450 posts) -

Average at around 1-2 hours a night if I can Mon-Fri. Weekend can vary depending on shifts at work for me and my wife. I can play as much as 10 hours on a weekend if home alone yet can go weeks without playing much at all. I'd say at Most 22 hours, at least 2 hours (and boy do I hate those weeks).
