Winter months might seem like the more logical choice, but I do more game playing in general when I'm drinking and have friends over. And that activity occurs more during the summer months I think. So almost a tie.    :lol:

Myself I play more in the Summer.  I'm outside more in the Winter as I hate the heat that comes with Summer.  Warm weather increases the number of humans outside too. I hate them as much as I hate the heat, if not more so. :grin:

Winters are long, cold, and dark here in Chicagoland. A great time to stay inside and play games!

 

Summers are short here, so it's time to get outside and enjoy it while you can!

Ah, I remember that winter well.  Off work for winter break.  No requirements to be around other people--no need for brush, bra, or beauty.  Begging bar stool and Wonderboy for the Sega Master System.  And it hit me:  "This game has unlimited continues...the programmers made this game so that I can beat it...I WILL SAVE MY GIRLFRIEND AND I WON'T LEAVE THIS SEAT UNTIL I DO IT!"

 

And that is what I did.

Probably slightly more in winter, if it is too hot in summer it is not comfortable to sit and play games for too long.

 

My gaming time depends on how much time I am sending writing and recording music, the more music, the less gaming until the urge for gaming is stronger............

Winter. Work is usually a little slower (not the last couple of years though) and the down time affords me more playing time. Summer is silly season and not only is my work busy but thoroughly exhausting so playing is low on my list of things to do which begins and ends with "nothing".

Being in college, the summer is when I get to actually spend time with my video games. Unfortunately, this also means I have more time to spend more money on more games and systems than I should...

Winter.  I can enjoy outdoor summer time but I'd rather curl up by a fireplace in winter and video game or book are great way to pass time.  And PS no I won't move south, too many freak hurricanes down south, and earthquake south-west.

I voted summer. I am too busy with youth soccer during other times of the year (and yes... there is indoor soccer too).

 

July is one of my slower months.

Summer is perfect for A/C and indoor gaming.

I voted summer. Where I live the high temperatures are in the 100's, it's perfect for having an ice cold beer and the A/C cranked while doing gaming sessions. The winters in my area are mild with highs varying from the 50s and 60's with even some 80 degree days. But a coldspell can hit though.

Way more in Winter for me, too cold to be outside for most of it and it gets dark at 5pm so gotta do something to pass the time.

My guess is when the high 90's roll in, video games will be played.

Winter - The wife and I usually take the first week in January off after the family stuff dies down and have a little staycation.  Video games are a feature part of the activity that week.

I could not answer this poll of the week because it's two years old and it all depends when I get a new toy.  It's not seasonal with me, it's more dependent of the comings and going of the USPS, Fed Ex or UPS guy.
