And that's fair. I like roguelikes. Nethack is one of my favorite video games of all time. I just discovered Dwarf Fortress.Conversely, starting the game tortuously hard makes me never ever want to do anything more with it because I'll just feel more and more demoralized.
This is why I basically never play "roguelikes." Desktop Dungeons and Hades are the only two I've ever truly enjoyed, and both significantly reduce the difficulty factor unless you want that.
