    So then boys and girls, i've noticed there are people on my friends list that just live online, so it got me thinking, just how many hours a week do we all spend sat playing with our beloved 360s?

    I tend to get in on average 2 hours a day, so roughly 14ish per week, i'd probably play more if the kids didn't rule the house during the day :(

    one advantage of not gaming so much is it makes games last a lot longer :D

    At the moment I would say 5-7 hours a week somtimes less. I should be playing more really but haven't got the time, I've got a whole lot of games that I need to complete aswell at the moment.

    My gaming time is erratic to say the least. Some weeks it could be a consistent 1-2 hrs per night or it could be one 5 hr session or if i cant be arsed then as little as 1hr per week depending on my mood!

    Think I'm roughly in the same boat as the OP - a couple of hours a day on average.Comes and goes, but I think my days of 8 hour marathon sessions are over now...

    Those days are gone when you could play Football Manager on the ZX Spectrum for 10 hours a stint.

    But can you honestly say you can play PES, Mario Kart, COD et al for 10 hours solid?

    Gfx wise, games today are nothing short of genius (and better things are to come), but to us they are not engaging enough.

    We will not be happy until we are fighting a life-size Darth Vader in holographic form.

    For me it depends on what games I'm "working on". I've just bought GH3 and Fuel of War so I'm pretty active atm, I'd say 15-25hrs a week currently.

    If theres nothing that I really fancy playing to earn achievements I'd just play COD4 online and my weeks gaming time would be up-to 15 hours :cool:

    Probably 2-3 hours 3 nights a week then about 5-6 hours Friday night and about 5 hours or so Saturday night. Depending on what else I'm doing of course, I'd never let gaming get in the way of a day / night out and I try to keep it for when my daughter has gone to sleep.

    15-30 vote from me, wouldn't say I clock that many hours up every week as sometimes I play alot and other times I don't play much at all through the week(usually play daily but often just for an hour or so).

    Taking into account I must play for a good 5 hours on a Friday evening most weeks I think I probably put over 10 hours of extra play during the rest of the week between the Xbox360 & the Wii consoles.

    Probably 15-30, although I haven't been on it quite as much lately as I have previously.

    The last week I'd say I only played about 10 hours.

    During my Addict periods - 4-6 hours a night, till 2am on school nights, 4am at weekends.
    When I've got other stuff consuming my time (Family, OU, Work) I'll squeeze in an hour at the end of the night to unwind.

    Went for the 30-50 option, usually have about 3-4 hours a night on average and more at the weekends, will tend to be the very early hours on a friday night / saturday morning when its a weekend that a decent game has come out, like this week with Grid.

    On a normal week I try and get 1 hour or sometime 2 in the evening.
    Much like everyone else though I have a stint on one of the weekend evenings so am probs getting about 20 hours per week.

    Although this weekend was in Ireland and am away all week so no game time :(

    I try and watch TV with the lovely Mrs Spammy for at least an hour a night, as we can ususally agree on at least one program per night.

    If there is only crap, (Or Shona Telly as I call it), then she is happy for me to go into the dining room out of the way to play. It saves her having to listen to me slagging off the garbage that is UK TV !

    I ususally manage to get in a couple of hours on wqeek nights and longer if Shona is working (Wednesday Night FTW)

    would normally vote 15-30 option 2 hours week nights and around 5 hours on fridays and Saturdays with 2 hours on the Sunday, but ended up going for the 5-15 option as the missus and me decided to try for another sprog, so duty calls;)

    most of my weekly hours lately have been on COD4 my 5yr old is addicted to online deathmatch - not sure of the morals about letting him play it but hey could be worse sitting watching him playing the vtech

    Depends if I've been hooked by a game. 'Mass Effect' ate a lot of my time up in December/January but at the moment I hardly play at all. 'GTAIV' just hasn't sucked me in at all. I've played about 25 hours in the past month but I really can't be bothered to carry on.

    5-15 for me really i think, Thats me playing on my own but alot of the time me and missus will be playing a few hours of a night on GH3 or GH2 or maybe a bit of Scene It.

    Is there any way to see how much game time you have put in on the 360 ?

    I probably spend more time actually reading reviews/buying etc on here than i do playing the games themselves, suprised no one spends 50+ hours a week though, what about those unemployed/students wow addicts etc:rotfl:
