How many hours you devote to playing computer games every week?

Well as for me i used to play like hell till 2 years back but after that my interest is going down regularly. I now just download/buy the games and never play.(just to show to others i have them :p )
Dunno i have noticed that increasing graphic requirements of the games is one reason. Esp now when development cycle of the card manufacturers is just about 6months, it is a real pain if not absolutely impossible to invest regularly in graphic cards.

For that particular reason i do believe that its now getting pretty ridiculous. Ok one can say that you can play the games at lower settings, but is that any argument, When you pay so much you do expect full performance for atleast 2years.(in that sense processors are so much better) Can't say what can be done but i think it will be better if the development time is made larger for the cards so that they get the best card in the market not to regularly and which lasts some time. Or better the gaming industry get together and started standardizing the requirements for a period of 1and a half or two years.

I play about 30 plus hours a week.
And yes its a pain having to buy a card every 6month.
I couldn't agree more about what you said about the gaming industry,just look at DOOM 3 system requirements....it is ridiculous.
And the war between ATI & Nvidia which the victims our us the consumer..
I hope something will change in the near future in better for gamers.

As with SuperNova, I too get excited when a new game arrives like say HL2 or Doom3. I try my best to get those but unfortunately never manage enough time to play the games. Its sad but rarely do I finish any game from first to last :(

On an average, I'll say 1-5 hours per week but then also there are so many games and demos all round, its really tough to play and finish them unless u're a full time gamer.

yea...programming is there but we got 4 subjects along with it also.

and apart from that, we gotta give seminars also in coll...so u see, if u r in a company, it is tough to find time due to the long working hours.
