Sorry if that sounded a bit sharp, but i assure u its just a blanket label for the direction of most modern games today. They seem to cater to players who need instant gratification and dont want to invest time into developing their game...

Im sure i will try out more of the variants so thanks for the advice

I guess i remember the beauty of Angband was that the game was very open and the player had many more options open to him... the current incarnation feels very restrictive and linear.

It would be great if there was a solid game setup opening screen so players could tune the game to their preference.
