I'm not really anymore. I used to play about 5 hours a day, but now I only play for 2-3 hours a day. How many hours a day do you spend playing video games?

I don't think I'm addicted to video games because I don't get ill when days go by without my playing them. On days off, I might play for 3-4 hours, but on workdays, I might not even hit an hour before I have to give the console up for other things.

I never really get that much into a game to be totally taken over by it. I do like to game but I know my limits. I am not running around only gaming, sitting in front of the computer with a bag of chips next to me along with a beer. I know limits and stick with them.

Ha ha Avshy -- I'm guilty of having the chips and beer with me when I'm playing! That's one of my favorite things to snack on when I'm here by myself on my day off and I have the time to play a game.

I don't think I was ever addicted to video games. I just remember playing around two times a week for four to five hours and I'd be done with it. It's not like I have a need to play it.

I am, but I'm not. I like to play when it is a game that I actually enjoy playing, but I am able to control my urge to play when I know there are other things that I need to get done.

Depends. If it's a game I REALLY get into, I'll finish it as fast as I can. I can go months between games, though, so it's limited to just having a decent game to play, I think. When I was a teenager, though? I was definitely addicted. I remember spending entire weekends gaming with friends. Definitely not the gamer I used to be in that regard!
