We use our computers for everything, including entertainment, social networking and homework, but a new study shows that teen boys spend most of their online time playing games.

According to BigNews, the survey found that more than 45 percent of male teenagers spend more than 60 percent of their Internet time indulging in flash games, multi-player games and even social networking games like Farmville, Mafia Wars and more.

"A large number of teens seem to spend most of their time playing online games," said Jack Wills, PR Manager at Casinator, a games site that was involved in the survey. "The growth in the online gaming industry has remained strong and even the leading social networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace and Tagged have been used by game developers to take advantage of the large number of gamers."
Does this come as a surprise to you? Sixty percent is more than half of the time, and while many of us play online games, this seems like a lot of logged hours. Do you play online games? If so, which ones and how much time do you spend playing them? %Poll-47213%
