How long is your average play session?

    5-6 hours
    Depends what I'm doing in the game. Sometimes the time seems to fly by and I'm like, oh ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it's dinnertime. LOL Plus, if I'm building, that takes me a while as well. :blush:

    It depends on the day. But it's usually on the longer side though.

    It depends really. I usually have time before work so I might squeeze in an hour. After work, maybe between 2-4 hours depending on what I feel like doing, and how busy I am. Weekends I can devote alot more time, especially if Im not doing any errands or working or another video game has caught my attention. I can easily put in 10+ hours in a session if Im devoted to a build.

    Usually 2 hours when playing. If I'm in CAS, building or redecorating then it becomes 3-4 hours.

    <1 hour

    For Sims 4, I usually spend maybe an hour or until I get bored--usually when the kiddos are asleep. Sims 3, I could play for about 3-4 hours. Sims 2, I would play so long, I would forget what time it was or whether it was still daylight outside lol

    I try to play at least one session per day, usually when my kid is asleep, it helps me relax to focus on their little lives (or working through the 100 baby challenge)

    After logging on I keep it running in the background after a while and minimise it to desktop whilst reading the news, web browsing or doing housework or making meals. I can run games like Bejewelled 3 or Solitaire inbetween visits! I don't know how many hours this counts on with EA Origin but I'm well over 3,500 apparently! I'm retired though.

    I really need an app to remind me to get up and go out every few hours! My late dog used to do that. :)

    Based on a number of the answers, I would be more interested in learning how long people play in a day.

    I generally play to unwind after work, and then stop for dinner.

    @Scobre Twisted Mexi has a mod called Clean UI that sets everything back to the original screens. It is a Godsend.

    The original screens gave me migraines too. So there in lies my dilemma.

    I try to limit my gameplay to 2-3 hours max, but sometimes if I'm building I reach the 5-hour mark.

    3-4 hours
    3-4 hours on average I'd say. I only really start the game up if I have the time to get really stuck in to it, unless I'm in the middle of a specific build and know what I'm going to tweak - then I might just play for an hour or so.
  • Sara1010PSara1010P Posts: 554 Member
    7-8 hours
    Monday thru Friday when I am working I sometimes don't even fire the game up. Weekends, when I am off, I average 7 to 8 hours, but I do break it up, take about 15 mins to walk around, stretch my legs, get something to eat or drink, then right back to sims.

    Lately it's been shorter than usual because I'm starting to get into those years where if you even think about lifting something you injure your back :D :'( :#

    If I don't have at least a few hours to spend on Sims, I generally don't open it. I counted building, and my builds usually take multiple hours over the span of days. I like really being able to pour myself into things, so even though my live mode sessions aren't as long, they're still at least in the three hour range!

    Its kinda different every time but I think 5-6 hours. I like to play on nights where I don't have to wake up early the following day like on a Saturday night where I would just play for hours

    I'd say anywhere between 30 minutes - 1 hour. Sometimes I quit within a few minutes. Sims 4 doesn't grab my attention as much as other games. I do tend to sink more time into this game if a new pack has come out.

    I mostly play for about 5 and 1/2 hours, but sometimes longer or shorter depending on if I'm just building.
  • MaggiedollMaggiedoll Posts: 241 Member
    I usually play for bits of time between doing other things. I leave it paused a lot.

    Less than 30 minutes and I'm bored again.

    I don't ge t - getting bored as I just change households if one household is not suiting my fun factor - so just pick another. I just never get bored when you have enough personalities and households. I am in control so I can't see how boredom would be an issue for me any way.

    I rarely have any game problems - so maybe it works better for me. I don't know.
