I stopped playing Cookie Clicker for quite a while. In April it added a gardening minigame that triggered memories of FFXI's gardening and I guess that jarred me to a consciousness of what a meaningless time sink FFXI was. I picked it up again a few weeks back and got a lot closer to "complete", and then Orteil added a new building type (fractal engine). But that didn't change much, I was still very close to "finished" and conscious of the meaninglessness of it all.
