I work as a writer and can totally relate. At the end of the day, there isn't enough energy to stare at a screen for even more time.I used to play videogames a lot back in the day. But as a Freelance graphic designer/illustrator, I already spend a lot of time sitting in front of a screen working, so whenever I have free time, I don't really want to spend it sitting in front of another screen. Whenever I play I only do it for 2 hours and I play chill/casual games like The Sims.
I also prioritize my job first before I play my favorite online games. I play if I don't have any task to do. I play for recreation and relaxation.How much time do you devote to your much loved hobby gaming? Do you have responsibilities you have prioritise first? I have work and then comes gaming. Generally speaking, an hour at most weekdays longer on weekends.
The same, college is priority now, it requires hours and hours of studying everyday. Wish to go back into the high school days.When I was in high school, I remembered playing games until the morning hours. It is because its school vacation days and I don't have a class in the next morning.
