Did anyone else think this topic was going to be about wangs? Anyway, I'd say the 3-5 hour range is the cap.
Maybe if you know your true love is about to move away to college or something, you can stick this shit in the stereo and make the moment last while at the same time listening to pussies whine about bitch shit. Just like you.

Too much... hah. In the Star Wars Galaxies post-launch days I stayed up for 60 hours playing. I didn't even realize how much time had passed.

Depends what your playing. I can't do a tactics game for more then like 2 hours tops, to much thinking. Then theres games like battlefront, I've gone 6 hours with my friend before. 6 hours of mindless killing fun.

1 hour, because time seems to pass slower for me than others.

I do play for 4-6 hours at time, though.

I refuse to vote.

12 hours is wayyyyyy to little, at minimun it should be 24+ hours.

Certain games deserve 3-5 hours, but 7-9 is a bit over the top. Better question - why is 6 hours not in the poll...? Online games are a whole different story, though, you can play them forever.

There should be a "Never" option on this poll.

On average I play video games for 6 hours a day, which is why I fail most of my subjects.

But on weekends and holidays I usually play for up to 12 each day.

Oh what is a little boy to do with an almost infinite amount of RPGs Hmmm?

Six hours a day? You really have too much time on your hands. I don't play more than an hour a day generally, because of school, work and friends but when there's nothing to do on a holiday or weekend, I've reached about a day of non-stop gaming.

All depends what game, what kind of mood i'm in, if i'm sick or bored, and last, if I have people over to play multiplayer. On average 1 hour a day, maybe 2 on weekends.

Although my record is 13 hours straight of Wind Waker (My brother and I have this thing where I'll get a game and play it and he'll comment/provide good company, so I had to beat WW before he want back to college), but that was on Christmas break... Usually I'll get maybe 1 or 2 hours of Tribes in on weekdays, and weekends I'll maybe go for 4-5 hours sessions, but it's still a lot less then I used to do...

I'd say I've been playing an average of 5 hours a day lately. I play as soon as I get home from school, until dinner, and then play even more, and on weekends I play from whenever I wake up until about 2 or 3am.

Monday and yesterday I played for 8 hours because I got a new game, but I won't tonight because of assignments and House is on.

I also played Windwaker last Christmas break but i only played for about 10 hours straight. The longest i had played games for would be about 17 hours from playing games 12 hours straight at a LAN party with friends then going back to one of my friends places and i played other multi-player games for about 5 hours.

Zelda: Twilight Princess is coming out early next year and it is going to be awesome! :D
