あまり vs. そんなに vs. ほとんど

Okay, I've read the lesson several times, I've gone to other sources to see if I can find a place where it's explained in a way I understand, and these three adverbs still confuse me. If I'm using different examples, can anyone tell me if I'm on the right track or if I'm completely off-base (in which case, anything to set me straight would be so so very much appreciated).

 

ゲームをあまりあそびません。 <---I don't play games much.

ゲームをそんなにあそびません。 <---I don't play games all that much...

ゲームをほとんどあそびません。 <---I almost never play games.


Also, am I using the adverbs in the right place, or would they come at the beginning of the sentence? I couldn't find any examples like this on the lesson page, so I'm not sure about that, either.


Thank you for any help you can give! :D

 

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

Hi!  It looks like you've understood these adverbs correctly.  You're using them in right ways.  I just would like to say that you want to use the particle で instead of を.  So, the sentences would be like these.

ゲームであまりあそびません。

ゲームでそんなにあそびません。

ゲームでほとんどあそびません。

Also, the adverbs can come at the begining of the sentences.  Either way works!

あまりゲームであそびません。

そんなにゲームであそびません。

ほとんどゲームであそびません。

Hope this helps!

Yay! I kept getting the questions wrong on the drills, so I thought I was completely wrong in my understanding. どうもありがとう~!
