Recently, my husband playing video games for the whole day during weekends and he only stop during meals or sleeping time. He bought some new pc games last week and now spend most of his time playing. I am glad that he enjoying playing because I understand that when he was a kid he never experience playing video games. Most of the time he was studying and playing guitar, piano and violin. I think he missed playing during childhood days. Now its his time to play and catch up with video games. How about you my fellow friend do you play video games during weekends? Do you enjoy it? Happy mylotting!

Ya I also play PC games on weekends. Right now I am playing Max Payne 3. I have started playing this game since last month. I am fond of playing action games. Project IGI series, Delta force series and Max Payne series is my favorite. :) In Childhood I didn't play much video games as didn't own one. Neither did I had a PC. Playing PC games started from college days. And I too spend hours playing PC hours.

War games - I really love war games, strategy games
Of course, right now, that's what I do almost of the time aside from work and time for my wife. I really enjoy video games because it can take away those stress. I'm playing the strategy games, so I do also the thinking and planning here. I'm on my 30's and I still love videogames. Thanks

Oh, your playing strategy games it will help you to think fast and learn how to solve problem while playing. I think there no age limit in playing video games as long as doesn't affect you relationship with you wife.

I liked to play the video games. However, I already have a child and therefore I hardly have my own spare time. Today even if I have a tablet and Xbox 360, but in fact I don't play them in usual. Perhaps I will have more time to play the video games when I am retired:) I love China

I use to have that habit during weekends. My wife could not do anything when I already open the computer and started playing games. I will spend most of the weekends in front of the computer rather than spending it with my family. That is when we're still had no child. But as a typical husband, that habit changed when our first baby was born. I realized then that I now had a little child to take care off and would teach her by way of example. If I continue with that habit, I would not have had a happy life right now because it may ended up as quarrel with my wife which is not good for our kids.

I do enjoy playing video games sometimes. There are times where I play computer games too. I used to play a lot of games when I was younger and as a child. I see as I am getting older as an adult, I am not very interested in playing computer or video games for long stretches of time. My friend likes to play a lot of video computer games in his spare time.

I use to play games of a weekend, but now I do not. My husband as well as my children are always playing their games during the week, as well as at the weekend. I think that some people spend to much time playing games, rather than talking to friends and seeing friends.

I agree there are some people like my husband choose to play games than talking and seeng his friends because accordng to him he can save lots of money if he not going to see his friends during weekends and I like. Thanks

Hahaha. I see you are a good wife. Your husband spends all weekends to play PC games, and you are still glad. That's too good when you know your husband needs to try some new hobbies. However you know, play guitar, piano, violin...are not a boring work. I think your husband feels happy when he plays its, because he likes that. He is just like me. The first time I play a game on an video game box is very interesting. Trying something new is very interesting. You have to give your husband to try to find experience. Then, he will balance his time. Have a good day!

Playing video game is really good experience. I have played the tv video game for the first time when I was in the first class. I really got interested in the games and used to have in my daily routine. I had even separate television for playing video game. From seventh class, I began to play the pc games and used to play daily during the seventh and eight class. Now i am eleventh and play games only on sunday. But the fact is that I still play. It is while playing game that my mind really works with interest. I am sure that I will never quit my relation with the pc games.

Bhebelen: Yes. whenever we buy a new gadget we use it for a long time. After using it for a few days--then it is dumped in a corner of the house. I have also done this regarding video games. I use to play for one or two hours daily. After a few days I never played video games. it is natural to enjoy video games when it is new.

Hi ravisian, I also play video games for 2 to 3 hours after that I do some household chores and cooking. I think playing video games with time limit is very good so that we can still do other things. Thank you for sharing my friend.

Hi there Bhebelen.. I do not only play video games on weekends but actually everyday. I make sure I make a time for leisure everyday. It fights off stress from my studies. But I don't play for like 6 hours straight. I enjoy playing especially if I can exercise as well. I have xbox with dance central in it. It's a good thing you can be fit while playing video games. I also play PC games as well. But I make sure, I finish first my priorities before them. Have a nice day as well!

Good to know that everything is in order in your schedule. You still give time to relax and have fun after doing your school work. Thanks for your response.

I really don't have a schedule when it comes to playing computer games LOL I would play them any day I want. When I was younger, I would usually spend my whole weekends in playing and would even go to work without a sleep. There was this adventure game that I really like and wanted to finish it so I almost did not sleep at all just to finish it. I would just take a nap, would set the alarm but won't turn my laptop off so that when I wake up, I am ready to play again. I also did not experience this when I was a kid since we don't have computer at home. It is nice to know that you don't feel jealous because your husband spends his weekends playing games. I would usually feel that way when my husband is too much into playing games.

I used to do this when I was still single. I'm such a nerd that I even sometimes skip a date or two just so I could finish the game LOL! I know, I know, but I was still young then and didn't know any better. Now that I am older, and married, and my husband having no interest whatsoever in video games, except for a few games which rarely happen, I also outgrew my "addiction" to video games. We still have the PSP and Wii just in case. =)

Video games are so riveting though for some people. Hope he will outgrow his addiction, if this is really an addiction. . Anyways, as long as he is happy with it, I'm also happy to see him enjoying.
