Welcome to this forum!
I do not blame you for spending so much time in the computer doing research. That's part of your commitment as a writer.
I spend hours in the computer, most of the time researching about White-Collar crimes. That goes with my forensic accounting and fraud prevention favorites fields. I found it fascinating and I learn and gather information that I share with my readers.
Computer games? I never have played. I have friends who play all kinds of games and find it exciting.
