God of Taking Forever to Finish A Game

So I finally beat God of War last night, the first one, not the second. I hadn't played it since the early morning of December 31, 2006, around 1:30 in the morning, give or take. I think I started playing it in the summer of '06, after that spring semester was over, and then I took a break when the fall semester began, played some more over winter break, and here I am, about a year after I began the game.

And the kicker? I really only had another hour or so left to go, maybe two.

I just fear that if I keep playing the games during the semester, it'll distract me from school work, but since I seem to have forgotten how to relax, maybe I need the games, or something else, to help me release the tension I seem so easily able to accumulate.

Suffice it to say, I now need a new game and I don't think God of War II is cheap enough yet. Thoughts? Suggestions? Keep in mind that I'm poor.

There is always small mini games on the internet (free ones). Like zombie killin' http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=23152

It a fun one. And a decent site.

Have you tried Marvel Ultimate Alliance? It's decently long, and has a fairly large roster of comic book chars. I tried the PS2 version, it had a Diablo/gauntlet feeling to it. Lots of powers and costumes to unlock. Graphics and sound were so/so. I ended up trading it in.
