I did the same when I was around your age. I believe the better question is: “is there something more important and of value with which you could spend that time?” A new language, an instrument, a new hobby, bodybuilding, all kinds of things can be done with time, and in the end you will be more happy if you do these things instead.
I’ll tell something about myself I haven’t mentioned in these forums before. There was one summer in which I played 6-8 hours (sometimes up to 10-11) of video games almost every day, because I had no extracurricular activities to do. My parents were not so irresponsible that they would let me throw away my life in that way, but that year they decided that just once, they would permit me to just let loose and spend all my time on games.
I had a LOT of fun. However, now that I consider it, I spent a LOT of time on a game that I don’t play anymore, (all the skill I obtained was for naught) and that time essentially vanished. I could have learned any number of things in all that time; but I didn’t. I chose to spend it on games.
To this day, I regret losing all that time. It wasn’t a horrible loss, but it was a loss nonetheless.
I am not suggesting that these games are evil. They are fun and it is fine, even good, to spend some time on them. However, you need to decide for yourself what your priorities are, and what you value most. Just think how many pounds of muscle you could have by the beginning of the next school year if you spent three hours a day exercising and bodybuilding instead of playing games!!
A few things to think about. :twocents: No person on this forum can give you a “lid” of time by which it becomes a sin to keep playing; only you can do that.
