    24.

    Lately I've really lost it for gaming. I used to play a couple of hours each day, but with almost everything being a first person shooter(which I never really cared for) or a huge environment MMORPG(again, never really cared for) there just isn't a lot that catches my eye anymore.

    I have to really be interested in the subject to read a book. I have to read The Rape of Nanking this semester, which is great because it's something that I've wanted to read for a while and just never got around to it. I'll probably finish it in two or three days.

    I definitely spend most of my free time listen to/playing music and watching movies. I chose gaming over reading because that's what I would rather do out of the two.

    What kind of games did you used to play? I personally never cared for FPS's either (Goldeneye excluded) and don't have the time for MMO. I am hooked on Skyrim at the moment but it's very rare that I get into a game that big. Because, again, I just don't have the kind of free time they typically require.

    I tend to play a lot of downloadable games from PSN, mostly puzzle and platformers. I like them because their usually short and sweet but still a lot of fun. And you can get some truly great games for under 10 bucks. They remind me more of the games I played and loved when I was a kid. I think a lot of games these days are unnecessarily convoluted. I like stuff that I can pick up and play for 20-30 minutes at a time.

    I would rather play a good video game than read fiction. I would rather read good non-fiction than either of those things.

    Don't have the commitment for marathons. Though I could do one if it's for a good cause.

    Now if it's a sport with a ball, I can literally play all day.
