Poll: What Are Your Summer Gaming Habits?

Summertime can a weird period for gaming. Traditionally, big publishers don’t bother launching their blockbusters during the summer months, although this trend has started fizzling out over the last few years or so. Still, looking at a list of  2018 release dates shows an absolutely packed latter half of the year, leaving June, July, and to some extent August barren by comparison. Some of you may be eyeing that backlog or perhaps the PlayStation Store’s summer sales.

In any case, your options are quite open over the summer, so we want to know how the season impacts your gaming habits. Do you end up playing more games because you’re taking a break from education? Maybe you book time off work to relax at home with your console of choice? Or perhaps you ignore games altogether and make the most of the hot weather?

Whatever you do, be sure to let us know in our polls, and then lay out your plans in the comments section below.
