Balancing life and video games, is it possible?

Depending on which survey you believe the average gamer is anywhere between 30 and 35. It goes without saying a lot of these gamers have kids. With kids comes life and all of its responsibilities. Gone were the days I could play my games into the wee hours of the morning, replaced by long nights of a baby crying and taking the dog out to use the restroom.

One of the good things about this generation is that the costs of producing games are becoming so high there seems to be a trend of games becoming much shorter (see heavenly sword)and dare I say simpler to complete. Gone are the days of looking for a save point for 2 hours, and in many games if you die you generally restart a couple of minutes from where you last were (I'm looking at you bioshock).
Although this pains me in some ways (I want my moneys worth out of a title) - it does make it easier to balance work and life commitments as I get older.
