That aside, I generally do my best to game every single night, but there are times (like this past week) where I'm just drained from work and don't even try. Or when I've been lucky to play a lot and my wife is starting to get that body language that says she needs some attention since she's been very patient with the games!

For the most part, I'd say 3-5 hours a day, totaling 25-30 hours a week.
I play as often as I can. Ever since achievements came out I have been addicted to that little "POP" sound.
Every single day for how much ever time I can spare. In the past 1400+ days the only days I didn't play and get at least one achievement was when my account was hacked (FIFA hack) and MS locked it. When my account was hacked, my streak was at 813 days so you can add that to what my sig bar below shows to get a feel for what my streak should be.

Stupid hackers...

I used to play all the time. The only thing streaks have ever meant to me is work, but, I would always play.

Surface and phone keep me happy right now, but I did buy a 3DS XL tonight, and Pokemon Y. Will spend some time training and battling my son, who got Pokemon X last week.
I play daily 2-3 hours the most. On Friday night and Saturday i play around 6 hours in total. I used to play more but with my family a full time job and my other activities is really hard to game.

I always have at least a dozen quick easy achievements lying around just in case I need to quickly save my streaks. It's sad. Too much work.
I'm unemployed, so it's pretty much all I do.
I play as much as I can when I can.. which would be everyday after work at least, but since my place of employment has recently been bought out and is going thru a big bunch of renovations I'm getting the short end of the stick.. which is good cause it means a lot of OT and good money, but it's been killing my game time and when its all over I'll be back to the regular money..lol.. but the reason it's so bad is that the scheduling is so sporadic and weird.. ugh.. like this week I'm pulling like 12 hour days... for most of the week (tomorrow will be the only reg. 8hr. shift for the week.)
