    So I personally only play maybe 2 hours at a time on average. I like to play for a little while and shut down the game and take a break. Some days I head back in to it after a while and sometimes I don’t. If it’s a weekend I might go in and out of the game 3 times or more. Usually on weekdays I’ll only play a couple hours after work. It’s not that I get bored but I can’t sit for a long period of time. So I take frequent breaks and I always go off and do something else for a little while.

    I can go longer, and sometimes do, but 3-ish hours sounds about right, most of the time.

    It varies, depending on what is going on. I prefer playing for at least 3-4 hours, more if possible. But sometimes I can only play for 30 minutes, which stinks lol.

    Just over an hour, usually, when the wife and kid are in bed.

    Lately not very long due to the new plumbob with the loading screens causing headaches.

    I usually play around 5 hours a day but I just got a new puppy and it's dropped to two or three hours.

    I go on binges. I will literally play for hours and hours on end then I might not play for a while. It depends on my personal life.

    1-2 hours is my answer!
    This is because often.. I sit down and start playing and then need to do something 1-2 hours later.. then... I just keep coming back for 1-2 hours throughout the day haha

    When I get on, I usually stay on between 3-6 hours. I end up losing track of time.

    I have played longer on rare occasion, but this would be my average. I’m a stay at home/homeschooling mom, so I literally have to schedule it in a few nights a week when my husband can take over.

    typically 3-4 hours per session. It lasts just long enough to have some fun and write a story up for that thread up on ts4 general discussion about what happened on your game today.

    I believe it's 5-6, hard to keep track because I get distracted a lot by chores and my kid.

    If you're just talking about how long I actually spend playing, it varies. If you mean how long I actually have the game open... all day. XD

    Depends if I am building or nah
    if building I probably end up playing close to whole day trying to get it right
    if no building tho its around 1 to 4 hours

    obviously i get off for some to take care of my own needs :joy:
    and don't play everyday

    but like if i start playing it likely ain't ending anytime soon
    there ain't ''i'll just play a little'' its all or nothing

    My gaming time varies from day to day and depends on what is on my schedule for that day. There are days when there is no time to play at all. Lately we have been very busy and the days are flying by. By the time Fall and Winter roll around I usually have more time to play my games.

    I always play before work, so I don't get tempted to play any longer :D. It could easily be an hour or two more ;).

    1-2. I can only play after I've put my daughter to bed. Sometimes I can do 1.5-2 hours, other times I may only be able to do 30 mins

    I just averaged it out, sometimes I play 2 or 3 hours, other times it's upwards of 6 hours ... all depends on the day. I guess I should've selected Different every time ...

    Now that I have a kid I am not able to play that long though when I was childless I used to play even 8 hours straight. Those were such lovely and QUIET times :D

    Usually 7-8 hours but then I can take long breaks in between when I get a bit bored, then I go back.

    I can have my game run all day, really. I play a bit, go do something else (or take a nap) then come back and play some more. Everything from an hour to 5-6 hours.

    It depends on what I'm doing in (and outside) the game. I spend a ridiculous amount of time on new builds and sims in CAS until I'm finally satisfied; easily 5-6 hours at a time and often for several days. It's like I'm driven to get everything 'just right' and can't rest until I do. I may spend less time in CAS, say 1-2 hours, if I'm just updating outfits or the sim I'm creating just comes together quite quickly. If a build/sim is taking a particularly long time or I'm stuck for ideas, I may also play for 1-4 hours and then have a break and come back to it when I'm feeling fresh. Sometimes I'll only play for a few minutes just to edit something that has come to mind or to take screenshots. More often though when I'm playing in live mode I probably play for 1-2 or 3-4 hours.
