Too little. I honestly spend more time on VGC than playing. I've got backlog Bristow-syndrome

All I know is I play 20 to 50 hours a week depending on how my week goes. I've always found threads like this one interesting. It really shows you who is a real gamer, and who is a keyboard warrior.

I’m sorry.



lol this is me to a T.

My best guess is that I've been hitting about 2 hours/day on average for the past few months. Some days no time, at all, some days 5-6 hours.

THIS IS ME TO A T! My bad 🤣

I try to play every day, but can't always. When I do play, I usually fit in at least 2 hours. More on weekends I have off.

Huh, more than 24hrs a day eh, how is that physically possible? Anyways, depends on the game, but if it's something I can't put down, the highest would be 10hrs, but as of late, my average would be around 7-8hrs a day.

Potential ways to play 24+ hours a day, from most to least physically, financially, and emotionally feasible and least to most legitimate:

1. Play multiple games at once, such that the total game-hours played is 24+ (like 2 games for 12 hours each). Very easy, just play Cookie Clicker and one other game. Kind of cheating.

2. Play all day long, including on an airplane flight headed west at least one time zone. Technically true from the perspective of official passage of calendar days, but Earth does experience 24 hours, i.e. a day, at the same time you do, so kind of subjective.

3. Play all day long on a spaceship going slower than the Earth, such that everyone on Earth and the planet itself experiences more time dilation than you, such that time passes more slowly for them than it does for you. By the time they've gone through a whole day, you'll have played video games for slightly over 24 hours. Downside is you'll be left behind by the planet and unless you stay in Earth's orbit so as to be picked up by the planet in a year, you'll never see Earth again. Upside is you objectively, scientifically, played more than 24 hours of video games during the period of time that Earth experienced a day.

4. Stop time for everything but you and your video game system and the energy powering it. Requires magic.

Honestly feel anyone that tries to disqualify others from being a "real gamer" has some issues with enjoying the hobby.

 

Anyone that plays video games is a real gamer, it doesn't matter if it's a 50 hour session of dark souls or a 10 min play of candy crush on the bog, we're all customers to gaming and enjoy the hobby as part of our lifestyle.

Oh gosh, what's the minimum amount of hours to be accepted in the elite circle of real gamers?

At least 5 a week on average. That's enough to get you through about five or six moderately sized games a year. 

Maybe I should have phrased it better, but I just meant that some people spend way more time talking about games on the internet than they do actually playing them.
