Platform Nation’s “A Simple Question”: Game Time

As I get ready for my work-day today, I’m reflecting on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  And gaming.  I was trying to recall how much time I’ve spent over the last year really gaming, and started getting a little sad when I realized I’m just not playing as much as I used to. Call it real life, call it having kids, call it growing up, but I just have a harder time making time.  I still love playing games as much as I did, it just seems that I have a larger stockpile of games I must play, versus games I have beaten.

Which brings me to this week’s ASQ (It’s a two-part one this week):

Have you been spending more, less, or about the same amount of time playing games this year than in years past? How much time do you spend playing games a week?

I find my week of gaming is made up of hosting a Rock Band Tuesday Happy Hour after work for a few hours, and some odd gaming times a couple other hours a week; nothing steady.’s response: “I stopped playing video games about 6 months ago, this would mean that I play a lot less than last year.”

A Simple Question (ASQ) is a weekly segment for Platform Nation.  Each week, you’ll be posed a question.   Give a response and let the world know what you think, there is no right or wrong answer here.  I will post my response on Friday. If you have a suggestion for a question, hit me up on twitter @vttym.

  • I’ve been spending less time overall this year, though lately I’ve been trying to play a bit more in the late evening hours after everyone in the house is asleep. Trying to get back to my gaming days of old. A large fail for the most part :). I probably spend about 10 hours a week right now on games. I don’t count Angry Birds in that count 🙂
