We are gaming to the tune of 13 hours a week on average. According to an independent study from research group NDP the average time gamers spend doing their thing a week has risen from 12.3 hours a week up to 13 hours a week.
you can spend as much time as you want playing games and i wouldn't say that its weird or too much. i usually spend 5-6 hours a week playing games but much more when i get my hands on a new game. sorry for my english :)
lol @ bubbles for his trolling comment..... to bad dude looks like you tried a little too hard on that one.... try to be a little more subtle on your next attempt. edit i saw one of your previous comments.
rats lol good catch though
All things are bad for you in excess. No matter how fun or good for you it is. Everything.
You really need some good English class lol, umm tend to get tired quickly of being in the same spot sometimes so gaming's time spent is not a matter for me.
according to xfire I'm more around 20/30 (big fork I know) That's not enough :D luckily I got a wife otherwise.... 60 maybe? ^^
that controller just made my skin crawl
Me too. It makes me wanna barf.
then watch most of the crap on t.v now a days
since RDR came out ive played that for atleast 8 hrs a day. 13hrs sounds casual to me, cant get anything done in 13hrs a week.
I been playing Demon Souls and GoW3 all week!.
i live on my own and have no real commitments to my time other then work so much of my evening is speant gaming
If I play half an hour a day, I consider myself lucky :-/
touchable friends, Kids, WAGs or HAB's
I'm at about 15 hours. I would like to do more but I have a wife and a career, among other responsibilities.
yeah thats how life is... i play a lot more now, but thats only because ive been divorced for almost 2 years now.
that is the dumbest pic i have ever saw.....that controller like that whoever picked it to put in the article should get thrown off of a cliff.....and whoever made it should get raped by wild animals
@ the controller pic
I play at least 8 hours a day. Almost got 100% in RDR o.o
so how bout we talk about how much time people spend just watching tv instead..... double standards
I'm around 12-15 hours a week gaming. I have a full time job and a wife. If I was a bachelor I would easily double that, lol.
For the most part I spend little time gaming Maybe about 2-3 hours an evening, but thats on a weekday night due to college On a weekend, or Holiday like now, I'm more likely to spend around 5 hours of gaming a day.
I swear I cannot sit and play a game for more than two hours at a time. Every great once in a while like with Fallout 3 and Uncharted 2 I'll have a 5 hour session. But other than that I like to make my games last. It's pointless to play through a whole game in a day or two that you just bought for 60 bucks.
THAT'S BECAUSE YOU ARE SCARED YOUR X360 WILL RROD, chances are higher once you spend more than 3 hrs on x360, ps3's can be left on all day, no problem:):)
only 13? noobs. learn to sleep with your eyes open like i did so the gaming never has to stop.
The PC and the PS3 combined I can do 40+ hours a week easily, expecially If i'm playing a game I'm really into.
No one should spend 40 hours a week gaming. Just think about it. That is almost two full days out of every week where all you did was sit and play games. You gotta learn to ease up on the gaming bro. There is so much other stuff in life to experience.
If you manage your time right it can be done, man I remember the PS2 days. I was averaging 50+ hours a week on wow a few monthes ago. Leveled from 1 to 70 in two weeks. Most of it was solo. then got tired of but still kept my account active, I paid for a year. Playing many hours a week is not as bad as people think, at least not for me, and Yes I have a family to, A son and a wife and yes we do family things together.
I agree with you waltercross i spend about 20hrs gaming, but my kids are my priority and i only play on my games when they are in bed or at school, i am still looking for a job so hat could be reduced down to around 8hrs per week, so gaming is not bad at all as long as you manage your time correctly
Wow that was actually interesting. Amazing!!! A decent article on N4G. Appreciate them when they are here people, because they are few and far between.
I friggin WISH I had 13 hours a week to game!!! maybe way back in high school or early univ when nothing mattered.
I game about 10 hours or less every week.
