I suppose I'm more of an internet junkie than a game addict, but I do play video games a lot...

I try to stay away from the hour after hour gaming. When I was a kid I use to spend up to 8-12 hours a day of straight gaming (assuming that I could go unnoticed by my parents, which was easier then it may sound with all of my siblings)

Now I try to play less then an hour a day no matter what. Most days it is less.

I probably play 15 to 30 hours a week depending on if I have a new game or not. I once played Final Fantasy 7 for 23 hours straight. :headbang:

I tend to play more video games when I have friends around but, I do enjoy the occasion weekend of sitting under my bed, a black blanket of the window, and a few two liters of Mountain Dew. Great times

Hehe, Starcraft, good times... Anyways, I stopped playing WoW 'religiously' (Like Ratch said) because I got dial-up -.- And depends on if I have new game or not... Or I'll just pop up some old one, Like Legend of Dragoon or something...

I find I play a lot when a new game comes out, but after I beat it I sparingly play a few multiplayer games.
I love JAZZ!

Used to be back when WoW first came out. Ever since then, I've been playing fewer.

No other game ever will compare to how fun WoW was when it first came out. Insane graphics, kick ass weapons and quests, interaction. A vast environment, trade skills, different builds. It just had it all.

I think I become a little addicted when I get into a new game, but after a while I beat the game or the time I spend playing slows down, so I don't think it's a bad thing. At the worst of times, my video games are a major stress relief, at the best of times they are a hobby.

I usually only play a game for hours if I just got it or if I'm playing with a friend. I think the longest time I spent playing non-stop was about 5 hours or something. xD

I used to be pretty addicted to video games. I remember the time when I used to have my own laptop, I would clock in up to 90 hours of gaming in a 2-week holiday period.

The votes on "May be, I play often" and "Yes, I always play" is racing.
Close fight.
