'Extreme' gamers spend 45 hrs a week gaming!

According to a new study by NPD Group. Where do you fit into the statistics, if at all? Are you an extreme gamer? What's your opinion on spending that amount of time playing games? Discuss here

You can view the full report here

I have not done any gaming for some time now. @ least 7 to 8 months or so

If I do gaming I normally do around 8 hours a week

I bet most of these are people who dont spend 40 hours a week at their jobs or have kids/family.

I'd say i spend maybe 35hrs a week playing on my pc.

Probably 3-4hrs on each weekday, plus 4hrs for a lan party every friday, plus probably 5hrs each of the days of the weekend.

I am probably what you'd call an avid pc gamer.

I dont see the point in these reports though, people who go to the i-series events could easily rack up 30+ hrs in 2 days!

It will be somehow used to show the evils of Gaming though.

I generally give about 3 hours a day gaming. Although when I´m busy that goes down to maybe 10 hours a week.

i can rack up more than that on holidays, but i certainly dont buy games regularly. if you're a dedicated pc gamer you stick to one or two games, not 100-200
