Gaming and time

I really don't have time to play like I want to anymore. I seem to always want to play, but when I get to my free time, I can't seem to get myself to focus tons of time on playing. I've never been a marathon gamer. It would take a really fucking awesome game for me to play more than two hours in one sitting. I always have that voice in my head telling me I should be doing something else more "productive".
 
Question is, how do I deal with this? I'm happy that I have limits, but I'm also sad that I don't get through games fast enough. I also enjoy having a social life (as small as it may be)
 
But I digress. Gaming will (probably) never be my job, and it probably wouldn't be fun anymore if it was my job.
 
Currently playing - Dead Rising, Persona 2 - Innocent Sin, SSFIV: Great mixture of games for me right now. I pulled out Persona 2 a little fast after playing a number of RPGs, but its good enough to keep me working on it slowly but surely. I imagine I will play through Dead Rising twice, only because the game seems to demand it from you. I don't really replay games often, so it'll an interesting experience to do it back-to-back. And SSFIV is awesome. Hoping I have a friend or two interested in throwing down on a regular basis. Online has never been my favorite place to play games, but I certainly played plenty of SFIV that way.
