There's great stuff (and tech) out there, but having been through it before and knowing what kind of time a really good game can eat up, I resist the urge to give into that temptation. I said 'traditional' because I do spend a fair amount of time working with Second Life, which is technically a game but really an open-ended virtual world with awesome tools for building and making things.

Then I picked up Skyrim and I was shocked by how peaceful and relaxed I felt while playing. Haven't touched an MMO since. For the last couple of years I've been playing Japanese RPGs a lot - currently working my way through the Tales series and loving it.
