I got the impression you had to really enjoy detailed optimizations and be in the thing for the long haul to get something out of it.

I'm having trouble getting into Stellaris. Again, it is the time commitment thing.

That are pretty, for lack of a better word. I learned to enjoy Dwarf Fortress (with some really basic tile sets), though its hard to go back to that now that I have Rimworld. I'm not sure I could handle the starkness of Aurora for an extended period of time.
Yes, I agree definitely. I don't care much for whiz-bang 3-D graphics spinning around, but I do like good looking games.
