Well, first of all, I don't pretend to have any kind of relationship with video game characters. All joking aside, I only play nonstop when I get a new game until I beat it usually. Other than that, a week is nothing.

When I got my job I played 1 match in 2 weeks. Usually I wouldn't want to not play for that long, but I just wasn't in the mood to game. Back to gaming at least every other day now.

I bought a ps3 a month ago for my birthday which is not till april 29th, so I can't play with it till then

Try going a month with a machine in the house and not letting yourself play it

I've gone without video games for much longer than 1 week. In fact, from May to early June, I won't be playing video games at all; because of exams. That's one whole month. What makes it worse is that I'll be missing out on GTA4, but what makes it a little bit better, is that when my exams finish, MGS4 will be right around the corner.

Easy, COD4, Resistance, Warhawk, Rainbow Six Vegas, and Uncharted all get pretty boring after you finish them all. And I don't have $60 to buy another game, so I've went about a week and a half without turning on my PS3 before.

Though I also draw and write in my spare time, which in my opinion is more fun than playing video games if I have a really good idea.

I pretty much went through high school without playing video games.

This whole week I haven't played much either with finals and such.

I've gone weeks before. Never months, it all depends on how much you play it when you do play it. I'd say it's better to play it for an hour a day for a week, than to not play it at all for six days, and rack up seven hours on the seventh day.

Its not hard to not play games... Makes me wonder what sort of social lives some of you people have...

If I start an interesting game, I do everything in my power to complete it, and if i'm not playing anything, it stays that way until a good game comes along.

It isnt that hard to go a week without videogames because I dont play them until the weekend. It is just my personal rule because of school. I just play crisis core the most and that is an addicting game. I cant go a week without it though.

I think I can go through quite a while without touching any games, but that does not apply if I have to study ...... especially for exams.

For me, gaming is a way to relieve my stress and once in a while, I´ll pick any short game (for example NOT Oblivion) to play.

By the way, I have been avoiding any online games for a couple of years now as they are way too addictive for me
