    11-20 for me. That’s on a good week, though. Mostly I miss about 2-3 days per week due to other events. Lately, my time has been split between Guild Wars 2, The Secret World, and Star Trek Online. :)

    Where’s the option for, “I don’t keep track but my spouse/significant other says it’s too many”

      Far too many. This is the person who thought games we’re silly and who,once playing, swore she would never pay to play. I find it the perfect antidote go work stress, but yes I play too much.

    Up until a couple months ago, I’d have said 20+. Since starting a new job, it’s much closer to “1 hour or less”. I’m very grateful to have a job again, but I do miss my LOTRO and Rift friends. :/

    Since i found Lord of the Rings Online after playing RIFT and WOW for quite a long time i am well 20+ hours again. 75% is Lord of the Rings Online… the story is unique and i love the mature player base.

    100% LotRO, but I’ve set aside Tuesday evenings to play,which used to be 5-6 hours, but has fallen to about 3-4 now. :( I take work home nearly every night and appreciate some family time. During vacations, it’s often another story though. :)

    I’d say somewhere between 6-12 hours a week, sometimes even more if I don’t have any plans for that week. And mostly it’s LotrO, and to some degree DotA2 or War Thunder

    im down to 1-4 hrs a week from a recent peak of 20+….. i find myself really burned out on the whole live in a game thing lately. when i do go on I enjoy myself but the days of capping each craft guild, earning raid gear, and lvling to end game are gone. been there and done that. felt like a fool for wasting so much time in a game.

    Seems at least one person is strolling so casually through MMO’s that they don’t even play MMOs.

    :-D

    I’m down on the hours I play 1-4, mainly cause I chose to hit the gym more often (and that eats up spare time believe me!). Even though I cut my hours down to 60hrs/wk, I still have less time for gaming. Two other games I dabble in are Star Trek Online and Star Wars Online. Gave up on Ultima Online.
    If we could just “gamify” real life! Rewards for hitting a new weight goal, rewards for reaching a certain level in school, rewards for accomplishing something at home. Is there an App for that? LOL!

      Actually… I don’t know about school, but I use Fitocracy to track my workouts. You earn points and level up and they even have quests you can complete. I voted 1 hour or less since unfortunately I don’t have much time for LOTRO lately, but if you count fitocracy I’m definitely in the 11-20 range

    Fluctuates a lot, but recently has easily been 20+ a week.

    Thinking back though its sad how much is low intensity stuff: crafting, waiting for hobbits to want to tell stories, chasing after chickens. All with something else going on in the background. So not sure if that counts.

    I stopped playing lotro and didn’t find an MMO worth my time. Or I’m just old fart who’s getting bored quickly.

    Anyway, I play War Thunder which technically is MMO few hours a week.
