How many games?

I've been keeping up a few online and mobile chess games at once, which is still relatively new to me.  This got me wondering about just how often people play online as opposed to face-to-face.

The very idea of multiple simultaneous chess games in person seems a daunting task that few have an opportunity or want to jump into in public.  But it seems pretty common to have the same experience online regularly. 

So which do you prefer? 

One game at a time?  Stacking up several games?
