I would say anything more than about three hours (and that is still pushing it) a day would be too much video games (possible exception on the weekends when you have nothing else to do).
[24 hours a day. Minus 8 hours, give or take, for sleep, leaves you with 16 hours. Minus 8 hours, give or take, for school or work, leaves you with 8 hours. Minus 3 hours, give or take, for other things (eating, bathroom, shower, conversing, etc.), leaves you with 3 hours.]
That depends on a few things. If you're off from work over 5 hours is not good. Unless you're girl friend is into gaming then play on for 1-6 hours. If you're coming home from work over 2 hours is not good. Ya' gotta' sleep. Ya' gotta' eat. Ya' gotta' work. If you're in a relationship ya' gotta' give them them their quality time first if you want to stay in a relationship. So I say on a work day, 2 hours is good. Not working 4 is good. 5 if you're playing a role playing game (you know how the hours seem like minutes when playing those).
When I was playing World of Warcraft I was putting in over 30 hours per week. Now that I've curbed it back, I have a lot more time to do so many more things. Don't get sucked into that game.
i think it doesn't matter if you fully do all your duties at home, and i think if you do i will not find a lot of houers to play on video games..
I don't think that there is a definitive number. When it begins to effect your school, work, family, social life, etc... then it is time to back off. If you can play 5 hours a day and still manage all these other aspects of life, then I say more power to you. Each person has their own number that they need to figure out.
If you have nothing else to do, play all day, but it should come last on your list of priorities. Do it only when you have nothing else to do. Using games like Call of Duty and Halo for stress relief will only put off the other things you have to get done. When you come back to reality after 2 or 3 hours, you'll wonder where that time has gone and everything you could have accomplished with that daylight. Sell your XBOX if you can't control yourself.

I understand everyone needs a hobby or a past time, but should our adult males be playing video games more than our kids!! I have an older brother, he doesn't have any kids, yet instead of doing something...

I've been loitering around the community news forum for the past few days looking for some interesting discussions, and the place is dead. So I've come to the conclusion everyone is over at Bubblews chitchatting there....
