I'm an old man that's officially too old to play SMITE (I'm 43, lol). I have a wife and 2 kids (10 and 7 years) and I typically spend their waking hours with them. That usually leaves me a couple of hours on some nights to rest and relax (split between my wife, SMITE and whatever other games currently strike my fancy).
*note* My standard gametime usually starts ~9 PM Pacific (-7:00 / -8:00 GMT). SMITE PC IGN is Branmuffin17. Look for me in-game, and add me as a friend if you'd like to play sometime; I'm chill.
I first got into SMITE (the first and only MOBA I've spent any time with) at the suggestion of my nephew, a cocky teenage bastard. I queue most modes somewhat equally (though these days I prefer Conquest more than other modes).
Here and there, I also play other games on PC and other systems. Current playlist (other than SMITE) includes a rotating cast of PC games including Hades, Red Dead II, Dysmantle, Disco Elysium, Dead Cells, Rhythm Doctor, Unbeatable, Cloudpunk, and random multiplayer games w/ some of my buds (e.g. GTFO, Ultimate Chicken Horse, It Takes Two, Risk of Rain 2, Pummel Party). I have an unending backlist of games that I need to play / finish (e.g. PC's Divinity: Original Sin 2, Cyberpunk 2077, etc.).
I've been gaming since I can remember...I have vague memories of my dad propping me up on his knee so I could play arcade games at Chuck E. Cheese's...when the "new" games were Dig Dug, Joust, Q-Bert, and others...that puts my starting age around 4 years old. I've retained my old Intellivision, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, and Dreamcast to graduate my kids through the history of gaming. Too bad I don't have my Genesis, and have lost quite a few games over the years (probably mostly letting other people borrow them!).

I'm an avid hockey fan (go Ducks!), play ice hockey (not that well), am about 8 years into my retirement from karate since I was 7 years old, and I'm pretty sure I know a good deal about dietary supplements, as I've been in the industry for ~23 years now.
