Other. Little and often with different games. There is nothing worse for me than spending days playing some shitty game. It would have to be a special game like FH4 for that.

Make a 40 hour start on a 200+ hour game for the win. I'm all about XCOM 2 (285h unfinished), Forza Horizon 4 (182h unfinished), Assassins Creed Odyssey (355h unfinished), Fallout 4 (455h), Destiny (2995h), Halo Reach (1000h+). I feel cheated by any game I can complete in under 100 hours!

I split my time up between TA sessions, helping people I have meet in sessions (while not in a session, off TA) and solo boosting, or single player. Depends on how much work an achievement needs, or if getting rewarded (like Microsoft rewards) (ex. seriously 3, seriously 2, etc)

I voted "Other."

It varies and just depends on what I'm playing at the time. Usually a couple of games from the backlog in rotation. Once or twice a year a new release will soak up most of my game time.

I strive for completions so 1 game no matter how many hours though there is a limit. I might move on and come back but it better be worth it.

If I'd have put half the time you did into Fallout 4, I may have taken a sledgehammer to my nuts. Cheers to you.

I also went with four 10-hour games because I like a little variety. Especially because I have too many games in my backlog that I want to play. Maybe it's weird, but I feel a little guilty playing the same game for {#}too long{#} when I have so many other games.
Exactly!

Should have added more hours, would be interesting to see if people like those 200+ hour completions while ‚games as a service‘ is such a big thing.

Other, I like going to a LAN but this is usually 48 hours spread over 3 days lots of booze if you want! play other people's games, or any codes, as a rule I don't sleep ,it's a good laugh meet gamers that your friends with and make some new friends, especially if your struggling to get an achievement!

I tend to play a couple of hours of a lot of games.

Recently had a great time completing Assassin’s Creed 4 and Red Faction Armageddon. Once I started getting bored with one, I’d switch to the other for a bit. Great way to kill 40 hours.

It used to be 1 game, but now it takes me a month to play that long, so I'll play a variation of games in that time.
