I play less games now for the sole reason that I have a job now. I only have about 2-3 hours to myself each night during the work week, and I can't spend that entire time playing games. I'm lucky if I even get to one hour of gaming. My time with video games has mostly been relegated to the weekend.

A job and all the chores that are accompanied with living on your own are both preventing me from playing as much as I did before. Not that that is not necessarily a bad thing, but it's how it is... I do play more than pre-Switch times because of the fact that I can play while traveling by train.

I think that is just a reality for most. The older we get, the more responsibilities we have, resulting in significantly less time for leisure activitities.

When I was a kid and teenager I had hours of freetime after school to play videogames, I'd complete homework as fast as I could so I had time to play them. Plus I had 3 months of completely free time with Summer Breaks. Tbh, I kind of miss those days, lol.

Now I juggle work, college, and various other commitments I've made, so I play videogames a lot less. It almost makes me wish I just went about living on student loans through college so I'd have a lot more time to just have some fun. My hope is once I'm done with college and I start a professional career, I'll have more free time again that I could devote toward gaming.

I’ve had more free time recently than I’ve had in years, so for the past... 8 months or so I’ve been gaming more than ever. It’s been a great opportunity to replay games that I haven’t in years for nostalgia’s sake, and check out some new-to-me games as well!

Thanks to Youtube and Crunchyroll, I don't play many games anymore, everything that goes up on Youtube is what I play. If it doesn't it's just for a few hours a week.

yup I don't have much time for gaming because of my work and study. Now I prefer to play easy game with the element of gamble from drakemall where I can win cool prize. I read what is drakemall on drakemall.info a few weeks ago and now it's one of my fav games. Very entertaining and light.
