Lucky for me I have a missus who loves to play these games with me, so on our days off when we've finished all the house-hold stuff, we sit and play the consoles... And Wednesday nights is lads nights in with the mates, so I really do play alot of games daily.

Usually I'm a gamer that plays in small chunks, either because I'm keen to move onto other things I'm playing, or there's something else vying formy attention. Oh for the time when I could just sit happily with Final Fantasy VII literally all day, only moving to get food and drinks...

So at the moment I'm currently playing - as in properly attempting to make progress on a regular basis:

Puzzle Quest on XBLA
Every Extend Extra Extreme on XBLA
Riviera on PSP
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Final Fantasy Tactics on PSP
Halo 3
Cave Story

All of these games are ones that you can progress in small chunks (even checkpoint to checkpoint in Halo 3s case).

In addition to those I'm continually pootling about in things like Test Drive Unlimited (I just like driving about, and hardly ever do any actual racing), Geometry Wars Retro Evolved, Angband, Dungeon Crawl, Typhoon 2001, Return to Chaos, Knytt Stories, Freelancer, and Star Control 2

I'm in a similar pickle as Sabreman - too many games, not enough time.

Currently Vying for attention -

Wii - Resi Evil 4,Rogue Squadron (GC)
PS2 - GTA Liberty City Stories, Burnout Revenge and Timesplitters 2
DC - Chu Chu Rocket, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, Jet Set Radio
PC - Battlefield 2142 (Which is the main attraction at the moment) and just discovered Trackmania Sunrise to be surprisingly fun too!

That's before we get started on emulators.... :roll:

Insert "I have to change his nappy and cut up his food.... and the toddler's not easy either" gag here.

Dirt Track Racing 2
Max Payne 2

Not simultaneously mind you. :wink:

And as of last night into this morning, No One Lives Forever (PC). BTW, I don't usually play this many games at once either. It's generally two at the most but I prefer playing one until completion or at least half through but it's WoW that's causing all this. Since I have to pay for time on it I generally have to play it more than the others but then they mope at me like they're being cheated on so I have to spread the love around. :lol:

I usually play around 3+ games at once but at the minute I'm simply focusing on Banjo Nuts & Bolts while playing a little bit of Street Fighter III 3rd Strike.

I can only play one or two games at a time, I usually have to either finish it or decide I will never play it again before I move on. The only exceptions are if I buy a second hand game and want to test it or if I play a little multiplayer stuff. At the moment I'm starting Gears of War 2 on co-op.

I'm the same too. I rarely play more than one game at a time. I'll sit down and get totally immersed in one game until it's completed, then move onto the next.

However, there's an exception to the rule at the moment what with all these good releases lately. Currently playing Little Big Planet, Oblivion & Soul Calibur IV.

I can only manage 2 or 3 at a time.

At the mo its Pro Evo 6, Everybodys Golf PSP and XIII on the 'Cube.

Even the simple controls in those 3 tax my brain trying to remember them all!

I usually only have 1 or two on the go. I won't buy another till I've finished one of the current ones. Usually the second game will be something like Guitar Hero, so it doesn't have a story etc.

At the moment I have LBP and GH: WT on the go.
