10 was a random number, could be less or more. I based it on my current 6 games per week "schedule" (self imposed) and I'm not a game reviewer. Also, his work week is probably more about writing preview/review/blogs, reviewing others work (Brad and Vinny are editors) and doing meetings. I suspect most of the gaming happen on his off-work hours.

Go try to keep up with playing over 4 games in a single week while spending 2-3 hours in each. With my 6 games, I have trouble remembering the keyboard layout for each and the rules. It's too memory intensive. I don't expect superhuman abilities out from people personally.
