Default Battery life when gaming?

Might be a silly question, but what is everyone's battery life when playing games? I find that my battery is terrible when playing a decent amount of games, which makes sense, but from what everyone else seems to be pointing too, and hour of a game shouldn't obliterate the battery.

Anyone have any ideas?

for me it drains 3 to 4 times faster, when i am gaming compare to when i am doing more basic task. But that is expected.

I'm using SetCPU to under clock my cpu when gaming so, it doesn't drain battery as much and doesn't get as hot as usual. And strangely I don't really see performance drop in most game's at 1,5GHz, it's like they using more cpu power than they really need.
