View Full Version : On average, how many hours a day/week do you play video games?

For me it depends. I can go days/weeks without playing an hour or less than that per day. There's others where I'll play about 2-3 hours per day.

So, I'm gonna say about 7 to 14 hours a week usually.

What about you?

It depends for me as well, on the days I have to go to work, I would say on average 30 minutes a day but on my days off, maybe 2 hours a day on average.

At least 1 hour a day, on weekends/day off at least 2-3 hours.

People who don't play videogames are missing out. In just the last few years so many excellent games came out.

It's funny but I used to play more on a daily basis when I was a kid/teenager. Even though back then I was "forced" to study and do my homework by my parents, unlike nowadays where I can choose when I feel like studying or doing some uni work. So you'd think I'd manage to play less games when I was a kid and my mother told me near midnight to turn off the console and go to bed :lol:

There are just too many great games coming out. The PS3/360 gen had so many excellent games it's ridiculous, and I'm not talking about FPS either, but it had so many great games in so many genre's.

Plus Nintendo games have been consistently good on Wii and DS, and now 3DS and Wii-U/Switch.

It's insane, videogames are so much better than movies or TV shows. They've caught up and surpassed them entirely. Why would I want to watch someone be a hero in a movie when *I* can be the hero myself in a videogame? Now that games are so realistic we don't need action movies anymore.

I used to play a lot of video games when I was younger, and had more games to play with.

It is quite a different scenario nowadays since I hardly ever play anything. I used to be able to play within an online game site, and it recently got shut down.

I'm still bummed about that.

On average 0 hrs/day, but when I get hooked into a game I can play it from a few minutes daily to an hour. Depending what type of game it is, if you give me a RTS game I can spend an entire afternoon playing it or if I just want to beat a game I spend about an 1 1/2 every day until I finish it but for the most part I don't really game much and the previous examples are the exceptions of me not usually playing games.

It's also hard to define playing games, does the electronic sudoku on my phone that I use on the subway count? I am counting it but there are such passive games that I hardly count as really "playing" a game.

Games aren't realistic at all, games have become crappy movies since they don't have the high quality writers of movies so you're left with a repetitive game or without any real challenge now. There are tons of great movies that only if you watch hollywood blockbusters you'll never understand. You can read books and use your imagination to tell a story. There are very few video game stories that are even on the caliber of good movies/shows and I'm talking about the "critically acclaimed" stories on video games. Seriously watch some of those "Video Game The Movie" that compile all the cutscenes and story elements of games, you'll get bored out of your mind and see how ridiculous the story is that you only forgive because you are playing as the character and it helps transition between two levels.

No, sdp, sorry but you are wrong here. Even with the sheer mass of cinema scenes in modern games, there's still plenty of actual gameplay. Look at the big budget games of today like Uncharted, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, Dishonored 2, Doom, The Last Guardian, Overwatch, Dark Souls, Dues Ex, Yakuza 0, Resident Evil 7, Nioh, Horizeon etc.

It seems nobody on this forum knows anything about games other than Cure and I. We seem to be the only two hardcore gamers on this forum who keep up with all the modern releases and follow the industry.

Inflated ego much?
Face it dude; gaming isn't what it used to be. Most games that come out usually fail to capture the interests of a lot of people, compared to older games. They usually don't bring much new to the table. How many reskined COD games are you gonna buy until you're tired of 'em? Pair that with overinflated prices for new games and consoles that become "obsolete" compared to a new model a few years later. Because of this interests dwindle. Personally, I figured the modern game market was crap a long time ago, that's why I just dedicate my gaming time to what I consider the good stuff: retro and bootleg systems. I'd much rather play NES or Super Pong than XBone or PS4. The graphics may not be the same, but who cares about stuff like that? All that matters to me is gameplay, and to me, older stuff delivers more than whatever the modern stuff can spit out.
Also, I'm not surprised that not a lot of people post about games here, there's not exactly much traffic on this site in the first place. As for you guys being the only people who "know about video games" that's bull. There are tons of accounts here, and by your logic only two known about games? :roll: There are others, I'm sure. They just decide not to post about them for their own reasons.

Dark Souls III
The Witcher III

Dishonored II
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Overwatch

Ratchet and Clank
Metal Gear Solid V
Resident Evil 7

Fallout 4
Batman Arkham Knight
Doom
Star Wars Battlefront
Gravity Rush 2
Yakuza 0

Anyone who doesn't have at least 1-2 hours to play videogames a night either doesn't manage their time correctly or is too busy with kids. For those of you without kids, it's rather easy.

You guys probably waste most of your time browing online forums or sites than playing videogames. Cut back on the computer and you have more time to play games.

You make several posts a day, though. I've only reached 1000 posts around 2013-2014 and I honestly think I already have a quite high post count considering how small these forums are. If I had gotten one thousand posts per year ever since I had joined I'd still have less than 10000 posts. So yeah, CyberCubed, you post a lot. Not to mention you also reached about 90 thousand post on IGN quite early on and I imagine you have a ton of posts on Serebii as well.

And to answer CC question about how it's impossible to find 1-2 hours a day, I'm guessing he doesn't do exercise because that takes an hour or more of my day, so there goes my daily gaming time to health.

Does anyone here have stories of games they got into over 10 years ago? I'm talking about games that you still check out even to this day. For me, the only 3 regular video games I play have been out for than a decade and I haven't been interested in maining anything else ever since:

1. Pokemon: I started when I got Pokemon Ruby for the GBA in about 2005. Was instantly hooked to the series then and started playing FireRed, Leafgreen, Sapphire and Emerald as well. Then I got a DS in 2008 which was when I began playing Diamond and Platinum. My DS then one day broke and I didn't play Pokemon for a few more years until I discovered emulators. That got me into the gen 1 and 2 Pokemon games. However, I never got into Black and White and never tried it, instead just quitting the mainstream Pokemon games completely when I discovered Pokemon Showdown which I still play to this day since 2013.

2. Counter-Strike I discovered in 2006 I think when my dad first got the family a desktop PC and I was allowed to buy one game for it. Browsing the flea market of cheap games, I discovered Counter-Strike. It looked interesting so I chose that game (mostly just due to the awesome looking packaging of a SWAT team). When I installed it onto my pc, I was instantly hooked. Ive tried out Counter Strike Source and Global Offensive as well and liked them, but its 1.6/Condition Zero which keeps me coming. Even the Deleted Scenes mode is a guilty pleasure for me and Ive had so many good memories playing Counter-Strike for over 10 years, from inviting friends to play Lan, to having all the different skins, to the experience and feel of the game in general. Still play it occassionaly every week and proud of it.

3. Super Smash Bros: Where do I begin? Well I guess at my cousins house where I saw them with this weird purple toy box with a kiddy gamepad attached to it. Weird as the console was, the game it was playing looked absolutely stunning. Mario and link duelling on Pokemon Stadium, what an awesome concept! I was instantly hooked and it became I sole reason I used to come to visit my cousins so frequently about 10 years ago. Even better, we were neighbours so it was less than a walk in the park. Anyways, I put alot of hours into Smash Bros Melee back then and it became even better when I got a Wii and began playing Brawl. My cousins also showed me their N64 with a working copy of the first smash game so I got the best of all three worlds. I enjoyed all 3 smash games immensely at the time. However, when I moved away from my cousins (overseas), I sort of lost interst over time. That is until last year when I tested Melee on the Dolphin emulator and it worked! I plugged my laptop onto the tv screen and use a Ps3 controller to make melee feel like the good old gamecube again. I've never played Smash 4 for the Wii U and 3DS. I love 64 and brawl alot but Melees my all time no.1 favourite and I still play it to this day. Watching competitive melee videos is also fun and its helped me develop my skill over time.

30 thousand in total, right? What did you get banned for, out of curiosity? Was it those Pokémon fics you wrote that got you banned?

I do this thing where I either don't play much at all or I do 1-3 hours a day until I beat a particular game.

I found a Super Nintendo Jr. at my local retro gaming store and have been blasting my way through Super Metroid over the last week.

In all, I own a SNES (2 of them now), a PS2, a Wii, PS3, three Game Boy Advance systems, and a PS4. I also have a few games on my PC.

Most days, though, I feel compelled to do other things (like reading/art).

No I just found it narcissistic that those 2 acted like they were the only ones around here that play video games or know anything about video games. I don't need cred here. It's not a video game forum. Most people don't care about trophies any way. I make up less than 10% of the gaming population statistically.

Before I had kids I'd say probably 35-40 hours a week. Now....about 1-2 a week.... If I'm lucky. I got my Switch and played through Breath of the Wild and probably won't be able to really pick it up again and binge until Mario. There's just not really anything coming up on XB1 and I finally just got rid of my PS4. Although now I got a major raise at work and don't have to work 5 days a week now and since the kids are in school I might get a lot more time to play and that will be awesome. It's a lifelong hobby for me and I miss it dearly when I don't really get to do it.

I love A Link Between Worlds. Breath of the Wild just rubbed me wrong with all the weapon durability stuff and things like that and so I actually would say that I had more fun with A Link Between Worlds than I did with Breath of the Wild. I know that's just me but that's just how I feel about it. I also enjoyed Wind Waker and Ocarina more than BOTW as well.

I've been gaming since 1986 so there are tons of games that I've played through multiple times and games that I always go back to. Speaking in terms of generations I still remember like it was yesterday when Mario 3 came out and I've played that game over and over. Then on Genesis I've played through Sonic 2 over and over and on Super NES Street Fighter 2 was my favorite and that's a game I can always play. Then on PS1 it's definitely Metal Gear. I can't tell you the time I've spent with that game. I'm a huge Metal Gear fan. (more about that in a moment) Then on 64 Ocarina and Mario Party and Smash Bros were games I could never get enough of. Then on PS2 it was Sons of Liberty EASILY. In 2002 I was actually involved in a worldwide speed run tourney through Tips and Tricks Mag and actually had a time that tied for 10th in the world. You just had to beat the game as fast as possible from start to finish and I beat it in 96 minutes. I played it over and over and over to whittle my time down to that and really could have gotten it down more but figured that might be good enough to win it all. Got my name in the mag for it though and that was so cool.

On Gamecube it's Wind Waker and Eternal Darkness and Viewtiful Joe. Obviously I loved Smash Bros and Mario Sunshine as well.

On original XBOX it was Ninja Gaiden. I've been a huge fan since the 80's and man when that game came out I played through it over and over and over. Then I played through the Black version. Then on ps3 I played the Sigma version as well. LOL!

On ps3 my favorite game would be Metal Gear 4 obviously.

On 360 my favorite "exclusive" is Gears of War and specifically part 2. Although my favorite overall is Dark Souls. I love Dark Souls so much that I literally beat it from start to finish as a Level One just to take that challenge. To this day it's one of the funnest times I've ever had with a game. That's a game that I will always never be able to get enough of.

On XB1 it's Dark Souls 3 and on PS4 it's Bloodborne. If you haven't guessed by now I pretty much adore Miyazaki and the whole Souls series. LOL! So that's pretty much my gaming life in a microcosm. Although I didn't even get in to my love for survival horror and Okami and Mark of Kri and Soul Reaver and Vagrant Story and Kingdom Hearts. But I digress. LOL!
