Do you spend more time watching television or playing video games? in Poll Forum Posted March 28, 2006 I've managed to break out of the "turn on the TV to see what's on" trap of modern day life. I find myself downloading a few weekly mainstream shows (Survivor, Amazing Race) to watch with my family. Otherwise I download fansubbed anime and can spend 1.5 to 3 hours (four to eight episodes) a week watching it. That being said, I would say that I prefer to play more videogames than watch TV, but while my TV viewing in consistent, my game playing is erratic so I may play less than I watch in any given week.
