I've seen a couple other people use this as a test, and I like it enough to repeat it:
Do other people have fun playing with you?
• If yes - you can do cool stuff but you leave room for others to shine as well, or, even better, you enable others to do cool stuff too - awesome, powergame away!
• If no - if you leap forward and end every encounter before it begins, void all role-playing situations (either through über skills or by just attacking and killing everything in sight), and basically leave everyone else in the party standing around feeling useless - yeah, powergaming sucks.
