I've never ever gamed that much, jeez. Most addicted I've ever been is FFX which I completed over 2 weeks so that was roughly 30 hours per week, and I've never done anywhere near as much since.

I've probably done 60-70 before, I average about 25, but now my hours will be around 10-15 with school coming up.

You know sometimes you see interviews of developers, and they ask them what games they like at the moment or have influenced them and quite often they say that they don't get the chance to play much, or they name some game thats like a year old.

Before i met the wife & had to two kids i would come home from work at around 4:30pm, have some food, straight to my room on my pc, playing from maby 5:00pm untill 12:00am - 1:00am(sometimes later)in the morning, just on steam speak chatting to my squad members, playing online games i only used to really go out on the weekends when i was off work .. mind that was a long long time ago when i still lived with my mam and dad, even now my gaming hours still aint to bad, finish work at 4:30pm, get home spend time with the wife & kids, kids go to bed at 8:00pm every night & the wifey usually goes around 9:00pm - 10:00pm ... as soon as the wife goes to bed ill go on and have afew gaming sessions, the weekends are great, it means i can game till 2:00am - 3:00am and have some beers while playing!

While I do work 40 hours a week, I sleep around 5 hours a day. Why only 5 you ask?
Because I would rather sacrifice sleep time to make sure I have as much time as possible to delve into the world of videogames. People need to understand that when someone is extremly addicted to videogames, it's not because they are 'fun', it's because they find that their life is so disappointing that they feel by creating a different life, or lives, in videogames, it gives them more self satisfaction than what they do in their real life. Sure it's sad, but it is a serious mental problem that needs to be tended to.
You play sports? I find playing sports makes me feel better and allows me to meet people... signing up for a gym sucks in the beginning but if you get into working out it has huge benefits (they say it takes 3 months to make and break a habit)... unless you change something in your life you'll tend to keep getting the same results...
