I think all these sentences below are interchangeable when I want to mean like very often, but the forth one can cause ambiguity, am I right? It can have two meanings: I play video games very often and I play many different video games, can't it?

I play video games so much.

I play so much video games.

I play video games a lot.

I play a lot of video games.

  • In principle your last example is ambiguous, as you say. But the default interpretation for native speakers would always be I play a lot / many different types of video games, because we assume if the speaker had meant I play video games a lot / much of the time that's what he'd have said. – FumbleFingers Jul 1 '18 at 16:58
