Data rate on videos is higher than usual

Log file:
I'm recording with CQP rate control set at level 18. This has worked for me before, giving me bitrates around 3,000-5,000. But recently, the bitrate has become 30,000-35,000, which takes up way to much storage, and I don't know why. OBS is updated, and my settings are all the same. Does the game I'm playing have an effect, like if there is more motion? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm sort of new to this.

Please review and follow directions and recommendations of the analyzer:

CQP is quality-based, more motion will result in bigger files as more bits are needed to encode that motion at a consistent quality.
