Is Angband evil? What do you think?

Tell me, is there any of this game any good?
Whether it is teaching anything? I played intensely for three months in this game and was pleased. But now, a year later, I wondered if I should regret the time spent. Help me to solve this issue.
I would also like to note that after Angband I can not play other computer games. They seem too easy. More Angband prompted me to read The Silmarillion. While that is all that I can identify as a "favor" of the game.

Are you enjoying playing? Then it's good. This is getting close to arguments over whether playing games is time wasting. I'm getting close to where a game I play is my profession. So playing Angband is "wasting time" which would be better spent playing another game. Kinda amusing, really.

I would like to play sometimes, but I did not have the patience .I dive too fast and lose. A year ago, I felt a very strong desire to play. But it's almost gone with my first victory.

It teaches you to pay attention to details and virtue of patience and futility of greed. It also makes you smarter (many games do, but problem-solving games like angband especially so).

I find those very valuable in real life too.

>it makes you smarter
Now I play chess very hard for the third month. Perhaps it is much better, than Angband. But Angband was really a lot of fun It looks like I have renewed their desire to play.

Maybe try playing a variant.

EDIT: And yes, Angband isn't just evil, it's the home of evil
