How many hours a day should i play video games?

right now i play 1-3 hours a day.

After your schoolwork is all done, I don't think 1 to 3 hours is bad at all. I know others that play all day and into the night. Schoolwork first and a couple of hours is fine.

Personally the way I look at it. I get good grades and I am in good physical shape, so I'll play as much as I want.

I'm limited to one hour because more is unhealthy, and my mom doesn't like TV on so much. But I always have to finish my homework first.

I used to play 8 hours a day...(on weekends). I think the time you play is fine as long as you are getting chores and schoolwork done too.

According to an article of a newspaper it is bad for your eyes and brain to play more than two hours of video games every day. Therefore, if you are done all your work (jobs, school work, chores etc.) you should only play for two hours.

One to three hours is a good spot to be in. So long as you take regular breaks from video games and get out doors for an hour, you'll do just fine!

it is fine to play video game for 1-3 hour but you should take more interest in outdoor games. playing video games has its own advantage but as usual anything in excess is harmful. Apart of fun and stress-release, video games will increase your focus, hand eye co-ordination, thinking ability etc...so make sure you have enough time left in your day to utilize all these skills.

If it starts effecting your grades then you should stop entirely but right now 1-3 hours seems great and reasonable.

i think you are not a totally idiot,if you don't study you know what will happen to you. you'll urine your life in future you cant do a job and cant spend money for buy new games or new pc. so 1st you should do your school work/studies then you can play as your don't sacrifice your bed time too.

I don't even. I have to wonder if YOU did your school work, based on that reply. I mean, a few spelling and grammar errors is one thing, but you literally said 'urine' instead of 'ruin'. XD

I say, so long as you're getting all your other responsibilities done, it doesn't really matter how much time you spend playing. If your school work is finished, you're getting enough sleep and exercise, and you're not neglecting your friends and family, go ahead and play. Video games are (typically) only unhealthy when they distract from those things, but if you have the time, you might as well spend it playing, if you want.
