    It's more a matter of when/if I can fit in the rest of my life, once I find a game worth playing! Can't wait for PA5!

    Generally 5 PM to midnight on weekdays and about 12 hours on weekend days when the MMO is worthy, taking an occasional day off fir family activitIRS.

    I figure out what hours I can play based on my work schedule.  From there my time usage priorities are: Work, Game, everything else.  Unless I need TP.  Then that comes before work.

    I play when/if I can, but when I have a worthwhile game (especially mmo) I find myself carving out more and more time for it.

    Almost always if/when for me, but if I'm lucky enough to find a specific group that meets on a schedule, I will definitely try to make it.

    As frequently and for as many hours as possible. These are my primary form of entertainment.  I'm lucky in that my life responsibilities end when the work day is finished so I'm free to play every day until I just can't stay away any longer.

    If I schedule something with my guild, I will do my utmost to make sure I'm online for it.  Whether it's a raid, a dungeon group, or putting on a server event - I am making a commitment to other people to play the game with them, and I take those commitments seriously.  Sometimes things change and I have to cancel a thing or bail, but I try not to do that.

    The rest of the time it's just playing when I'm able, but I like to try and keep a consistent play schedule just for my own sanity and so people can predict when I'll be around.  I like to be seen as a reliable person because unreliable people annoy me greatly. :)

    I only game after the kiddos go to bed, usually from about 8:30 - 10:30pm. Not as much time as I once had, but it'll work. Eventually, I'll have more time when my kids are older (I hope)

    tough question! It's always fun to have a scheduled time to play with friends, but given people's busy lives that can sometimes be hard. Otherwise, I suppose I will play when I'm available which will inevitably become a makshift schedule as I find myself available to play around the same time each day.

    9-midnight (ET) most nights of the week, more on weekends, and often a couple hours early morning on weekends before I start yard/housework.

    It depends.. It's an immersive game that I fall in love with I will make time for it.. Otherwise I just game casually when able.

    I will fall into a fairly regular schedule that will depend on any odd hours I might have to work but should regularly spend 4-6 hours in game

    Well, past dictates that I work life around a game that I'm wholly interested and invested in. However, I'm a far cry from my 20's now and life holds more responsibility that demands my attention. It's safe to say that my play time will be when I've time to spare---but I'm pretty decent at making time as well. So, the answer is "both".

    I will Dedicate certain times. I can probably be online only a few ours per week so. Work comes first, then family, then firiends.  I will be jealous for those who can play 24/7, but Real life comes first.

    I do both.  Back in my early days I just played all the time.  Now that I have a family and a real job I must plan times to play otherwise the "if/when I can" will never occur.  So, I plan times to play, but I'll also jump onto a game if I find myself with some rare free time.

    All my freetime is dedicated to gaming, which is usually 4 to 7 hours per day. Also I play with my GF since 10 years which is a blast.

    I'm glad I'm not alone on this one.  I have the same exact hours (and reason) in mind.  I might stay up past 10:30 though depending on what's going on in-game. 

    Hopefully we can find enough other like minded people to group with when this game goes live :)

    My wife plays with me. Most of my kids do. It's our family togetherness activity.
