Edit: Ignore the greater than symbol in the poll, it should be a less than symbol.


Seeing that the gaming thread is the biggest thread in the pit (in all of UG?), I'm assuming that most of you play video games at least a little bit.

So how often do you play them? Is it usually just when you're bored, or do you have an obsession with it?

I play video games much more than I should. About 4-6 hours a day is the norm. :\

Most days.

And the GT is made up of a core of like 10 or 12 people posting religiously.

I usually only play when I'm with friends. A social gamer, as it were. The exception is Knights of the Old Republic.

Usually once a day, but mostly not consoles anymore, I'm bored of the stuff I've got. I just play some of those smaller online games that get addictive (see: Jelly).
#12
probably 5 nights out of the week I'll play playstation for a couple of hours
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

I play something at least once a day. World of Warcraft I get on every now and usually like maybe twice a week for a total of 6 hours. 360 I hardly play since I have beaten everything. Diablo 2 is what I spend the most collective time on since this last few months there have been a few days where I played it for 8 hours nearly. I mostly play guitar these days though and don't game as much as i used to.

Usually at least two or three hours a day. I generally don't play PC games though, so if I'm broke there's a lot of replaying.

Probably not, at least until free private servers start popping up. I really can't justify subscription gaming with my current lifestyle. Supposedly the main private server for Star Wars Galaxies goes online in November, though, so I'll probably check that out. I don't like video games so much as I like Star Wars.

Depends really, I've been known to just become obsessed with a really good game and just spend all my time playing on them until I get bored, but sometimes a week or two will passs and I won't play at all, weird really.

Couple hours a day but that's including little flash games online. If i get a new game that grabs my attention i'll spend almost every waking moment until it's conquered otherwise it's the occasional veg session with my buddy playing halo 3 online.

Sorry. I don't think I can change it now though.

Anywhere between a few hours to many depending on if I've got a game that I enjoy playing. I remember waking up in the morning, popping on FFX and not stopping until the next morning. This has also happened with Ocarina of Time, Paper Mario and a few others.

Those were the days

Meh, in the summer I play way to much. I've been playing tf2 for 3+ hours everyday so far. Though when school starts back up, it'll drop down to a more reasonable rate.

most days. It depends what else I have to do. Some days I'll play all day right into the night (>8 hours), other days not at all.

Ive played about an hour in 2 weeks, on a sega genesis. I'm thinking about getting an Xbox 360 because I'm bored of all the games I have, I've beaten them all. Basically I wanna buy a 360 for BF: Bad Company and a coupe other shooters.

This. Add in three days off from school due to teacher illness, the Wii having come out about two days before and a fresh copy of Twilight Princess accidentally landing in my hand.

Those were indeed the days...
