Yeah man I'm afflicted to solitaire. I can't describe the feeling when I win and the cards bounce on the screen. It's like I won at life. I just can't get enough.

I go through many regular cycles, and one of my annual cycles is Free-Cell. I'll download Free-Cell on my phone, binge 500 games at an average of 2 - 3 minutes per game, delete the app, and repeat the next year.

*For those who don't know, Free-Cell is basically solitaire with a capacity limit on the number of cards you can move around at one time.*

I play CSGO, Overwatch, Rocket League and F1. I don't want to play long games that take hours haha since I am busy and I don't want to like miss out on real life (no offense) living a virtual game that I'll probably never remember all the details after and how the coders put effort into easter eggs etc.

I did, way back when, but as I suspect was the story for many many of us it was all strategy games.  Civ, SoSE, etc. My once mighty gaming rig has been relegated to pushing quad 4k monitors for Bloomberg. (i5 2550k that never really overclocked, 32gb of RAM, GTX1060, etc. etc.)

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

I feel you, started with strategy games and then got big on shooters. Playing lots of Humankind lately though. 

I just updated my rig from a config similar to yours, went from that i5-2500k (what an efficient beauty this one, could hold his own for 10 years) + 1050ti to 11th Gen + RTX 3070 a few months ago.
