I am entering college and after this gen I'm done with videogames. I had a good run but I get tired of games really quick nowadays, so I'm not buying PS4/X1. There are more things to do besides gaming, and I'm starting to have more fun with those things than with videogames actually. 

What do you guys have to say? Is gaming your favourite hobby or are there things that you have more fun doing? For instance, I love movies.

I have a decent gaming PC. Gaming isn't all I do. It's nice to have there to play games that come along that interest me.

Ohh poker, my father taught me to play about 5 years ago and since then I've always been a fan.

This has been my favorite gaming gen by far. Before this gen I played games more as a secondary hobby. Now its my number one thing to do. If the next gen is similar to this gen then I will probably be spending more time gaming.

one of them for sure. I have three hobbies. Gardening, watching anime, and gaming. Those three things keep me sane~

When I was like 18 I grew out of them. I haven't played them in so long. Now I would say my favorite hobby is watching TV shows but I am trying to get that switched to making music.

I might play 12-15 hours a month, if that. I just have other things to do.

My favorite hobby is flirting...it's fun and when done right, the other party gets a rush, too.

Not my favorite because I don't really get rewarded by it like I do other hobbies. I enjoy collecting antiques / coins, cooking, weight lifting, brewing beer, playing guitar and tin whistle ( I admit I haven't played in a year or so), reading ( not sure if thats considered a hobby), movies, shows, etc.

My absolute FAVE hobby is DJ'ing. I LOVE it. It is my passion. Video games are a close second, tied with movies ;)

Hobby is such a small word really. A few years ago I might would say that gaming was one of my passions. Since then I've found way better more practical things to do with a passion, music, guitar, cooking, to name a few. Video games are definitely more at hobby level these days along with like comic books and stuff, ie if I have the time I might play a couple times a week but not much more than that.

I do some interior painting in nice neighborhoods, so my favourite hobby is googling how much people's things cost. The one I remember most is 1.4k for 5 bottles of alcohol.

But yeah I guess video games are ok.

It's more than a hobby for me. So I'd say my favorite hobby is video editing or something.

I would still consider it an important hobby, but it's become less important as I've gotten older.  It's harder to be engaged with it when you don't have a lot of time to commit.

I hear you. Games with long single-player campaigns are my favorite, but it's hard to sit down and start a 60+ hour game when in the intervening periods between plays you forget all the minor details of what you were doing, especially in games like Total War when you micromanage everything.

No it isn't my favorite hobby. I love fishing, camping, hiking, cycling, and gardening more than playing video games. It is why I play a lot of games during the winter, but not much during the summer.

It's up there but I'm starting to enjoy other things more, like reading, music, and sports. My interest in video games has slowly declined since I graduated high school five years ago, and aside from the occasional game that really captures me, I don't finish games very often anymore.

Not really, no. I enjoy playing them, and this summer I've spent more time playing them than usual, but there are other things I like to do much, much more than gaming. When I go to college in the fall I really doubt that I'll devote anywhere near the same amount of time to games.
