I am not satisfied

Looking at my game playing for the last year or so it is clear that it has been in decline.  Working and the family are part of the story, but really don't explain it all.  I think the biggest contributor is that I just don't get any satisfaction by just playing a game anymore.

During the time I played WAR I was an active blogger, part of the Core Tester team, and ran the Arsenal of WAR website.  So I did more than just play the game.  I really enjoyed all that too.  Now I find it hard just to play a game without all of the extracurricular activities.

Instead, I've turned my attention to projects like Sites with Benefits and Project Venice.  Both allow me to be more than just a user or player.  Don't get me wrong, I still like to play games.  I just don't get as much satisfaction from them as I used to and that leads to less playtime.
