"there is another world, there is a better world..."

I think that playing so much City of Villains is making me stupider. Certainly, my thoughts are becoming less interesting to me. Even listening to NPR while I play can only help so much. I need to increase my outside stimuli and decrease the hours of gameplay. Fifty plus hours a week is way too much. But should I just let it go on at this pace and wait for inevitable burnout of interest in a couple weeks? Or should I try and cut it down to twenty (or even ten) hours a week?

I don't think I have a particularly addictive personality, but I am a creature of habit. I like not having to make decisions, being able to leave myself on autopilot for a while. I find that doing so gives my brain more time for creativity. So I just need to reprogram my habits regarding the game, which essentially means reintegrating some of the behavior patterns I've neglected since I started playing.
