i'm 43. so old, that when i was a boy, i had to leave my house and go out to an arcade if i wanted to play videogames. true story...

i play for an hour or two each night, after the kids are in bed.

i've played every incarnation of gta and would say that gta online is my favourite so far; being closest to the spirit of the original, in which you could progress through the game without doing the storyline missions, but just by making money from selling cars (when you weren't running over lines of hare krishna - GOURANGA!)

I'm 20 and I play whenever I get time, usually on the evenings after Uni work, but I play earlier in the day on weekends sometimes.

Well, I'm 33 and I remember having to stand on milk crates to see the screen on arcade cabinets at my local mom and pop store. They had Mrs. Pac-Man, Galaga and Punch Out. And there were pool tables and pinball machines, drawing in the older crowd, which is why my mom hardly let me into those smoky dens of "evil" without her or my dad with me. lol

I agree that GTAO is pretty much the apex of what I wanted in the series. Sure, I can nitpick, but none of it would detract from the amazing open world we have to play in. If I'd have seen this game as a kid, I think I would have gone blind and mute form the awesome.

36. Usually between 8pm-12am GMT. Sometimes till around 2 or 3am if nothing else is going on and I don't need be up early the next day.

 

I do like how this topic reminds me how many 'older' gamers there are on here.

Looking at the age statistics for this thread lets us know that

 

50% of players prior to this post are over 30 mature gamers.

 

50% of players need to pull their trousers up and stop playing their music so loud!!!!!!

34, but you're only as young as the girl you are feeling, she's 24.

 

I play from 7pm gmt to 12/1am maybe 2-3 weeknights, afternoon and evening at weekends depending on other plans.

After school i used to do my homework in the arcade then treat myself to a few games of double dragon, outrun, chase hq or the one and only shinobi ;)

The reason i dont bitch and moan about this game is because i can turn on my ps3 and see how far gaming has come in the last 30 years

34, playing GMT afternoon up until early morning: roughly 6-8 PM up to 3 AM give or take. Got some mixed friends in there: 23 French, 33 USA, 26 UK, 30+ USA that we play regularily in that timeframe.

 

For comparison to USA time, I have been told I am +8 to Central America. That means +6 from GMT time reference. MY local 22:00 would be 20:00 GMT and 14:00 Central US time.

I'm 25. Basically play whenever I have some time to myself around a full-time career/girlfriend/social life. So I'd say a couple hours, every other night on average. Wish I could more
