Civilization IV considered harmful to productivity

I’ve been playing way too much Civilization IV Beyond the Sword lately rather than coding. The really awful thing is that I don’t even care about any particular game. If I don’t like something that happens I just quit the game and start a new one.

My favorite part of the game is the map discovery phase, where I’m exploring, meeting other cultures, and building my initial cities. Once that’s done, I’ll sometimes finish the game, but lots of times I’ll just quit and start another.

Why am I doing this? It’s completely pointless.

Blast you, Sid Meiers and the rest of Firaxis!
