    I find a good gaming session relaxes me and stops me thinking about everyday stuff so for that reason alone I don’t find it a waste of time.

    I never game because I have nothing else to do. There is always something that needs doing – its just I make a conscious decision to have some ‘me time’.

    I do find my gaming time increasingly limited though. For that reason I have to pick and choose my games.
    I like Pinball, Trials and COD because they are just pick up and play. I havent got time for some RPG that takes 10 hours to get going.

    Even great games that I have enjoyed (Dark Souls, Catherine, Xcom) I have ended up abandoning because I leave them for a week or so and lose the continuity.

    Everyone needs to something to switch off with. I like that Australian programme about airport security on Sky One.

    But if you ever catch me saying I need to make more time in my life for it, kill me.

    Yeah losing the continuity for me is a hard thing as sometimes time I get back to something I've forgot the story or due to lack of gaming time I get bored as the same game takes weeks to complete.

    I like long RPGs though and don't just want load up Fifa or COD once a week

    West wing re-watch > Gaming for me at the moment.

    Before that it was Breaking Bad, Before that it was the Killing (Danish).

    Basically box sets have taken over from gaming.

    Probably cause they tell decent stories unlike most games. It's telling that the last one I completed was Mass Effect 3.

    Yeah I'm the same, RPGS take forever to complete now and sometimes I just lose the flow due to not playing for a while and dump 'em (sorry Skyrim and Fallout NV), but I still get them and give it a go as there is nothing like a nice meaty RPG.

    The best solution is to have no social life and spend all your leisure time gaming.

    I agree with kalel though, gaming is just something you do in your spare time. If you have to make extra time for it, your priorities are probably a bit skewed somewhere.

    I think I am my own worse enemy. I will often buy games though I have loads of stuff already to play I then rush through games to get the next one. I spend more time on gaming sites, listening to podcasts and on hot uk deals website than I do actually playing them
