How To Cut Back On Playing Video Games

It is painfully obvious that the author of this article doesn't have a full time job (other than writing about playing video games) because most of us in the working world have so little time to play the games we WANT to play it isn't even funny. I damn near died laughing when this guy suggested spreadsheets.

Create a gaming log, be it a spreadsheet or just a piece of paper, and write down when you start playing a game and when you stop. Then add up your total gaming time at the end of each week. When I saw how much time I was actually spending in virtual worlds, it was enough to snap me out of my escapism bubble.
