I would say in between, I'm nowhere near good enough to even get in the vicinity of serious players, who unlike me have been playing it for decades an have reached truly superhuman skill levels.
I mostly find it enjoyable and it has noticeable mental health benefits.

I'm not really aware of the mental health benefits, mind linking some reading?

I haven't beat it yet. I thought I had a winning combination with ballistae + rifles + hand crossbows. Got all the way to the last night, then the game decided to spam lancers at me.
80 block out of the gate and 260 fucking armor? Fuck you.
Overall my feelings are conflicted. On the one hand, it's mega gay that you're basically designed to lose from the start, but I guess it's pretty compelling because I keep coming back.
For those who haven't played: basically you're defending the remains of a town after a magical nuclear war has scoured the rest of the planet and turned the population into magical mutants. You start off with retards wielding rusty weapons and feeble spells, but because of divine intervention you're able to start over again and again after losing, and the bonuses and unlocks you get through each iteration carry over to your next try.
The music fucking rocks though.

Black Mesa. It's pretty good actually. Only complaints are that multiple guns on number keys always sucked. And some puzzles are just weird or just don't even work. I had to reboot the game one time for something to work.

Has there even been any games about city planning out an Ecumenopolis before? Dysentery sphere program seems to try it but it’s still to barebones.
I was thinking about the mechanics of a game being a planetary governor of multiple different worlds. Maybe most of the functions of the world can be handled by a council of different parts of the planet that can be elected or chosen by you. The goal can be having the world survive as long as possible under your rule while keeping the tithe flowing. At the same time dealing with the mechanicus, space marines, the scholar progenium, rogue traders and the Inquisition. You can be a good guy and make the world prosperous but if you want you can just play a heretic (either simping for Chaos, Tau, Tyranid or secede from the Imperium independently) and go full Xaphan to burn the world in a blaze of glory.
The graphics could be the level of Aurora or Dwarf Fortress.

I am playing vanilla Factorio right now, currently on the green science tier. The base is steadily growing, but the bugs are getting pissed off because of the power plant and mines have shitted up the air, so I have to hunt down their nests before they start chugging the pollution and mutating. Other than that, I have begun researching engines and fluid handling so as to get on with oil processing as soon as possible.
Do you have a Matrix account? I don't play Mindustry much, but I would like to play co-op with someone on semi-regular basis.

Sky Kid (NES, 1986). This shmup has a good concept and it would have been an NES classic on par with Super Mario Bros. if the levels had been a bit tighter in design and more than ONE song, sheeesh (this is sheeesh even by 1986 standards, believe me). Here is something you MUST know when playing it, it's not a cheat, it's fundamental for surviving for longer than two minutes: While your damaged plane is falling, hold up and hammer buttons. The longer you fall, the better your chance to recover. That means flying high is usually the least dangerous option. But there are many targets on the ground and your shots only travel a fraction of the whole screen distance. These elements neatly fit together. You have one button to shoot and one button to do a loop. You can also collect a bomb that you drop with the same button you normally use for the loop. (This is actually brilliant. A modern remake would probably use a different button for that because modern game designers are stupid.)

How is taking away options from the player 'brilliant'?

The loop is for dodging. It's up to you if you pick up the bomb. The item appears on the ground, of course. It all fits together in the scheme of risk and reward. Once you have the bomb, if you really wanna loop, you can of course do that, just get rid of the bomb with one tap of the button and the second tap makes the loop. Even with the NES pad, the functions of loop and bomb could had been separated by involving the d-pad. But what would have been the consequence of that separation? The way it is means that once you have the bomb, it's tricky carrying it far enough to make good use of it. This creates tension. Separating the functions wouldn't.

Jeopardy on the… NES (developed by Rare for Game Tek). Fuck this is tedious. In this version of the quiz show, you have to type every response with a virtual keyboard. And it doesn't even make use of both buttons on the pad, so you can't delete anything by pressing the other button, you have to instead select a virtual delete key. I understand that they wanted to stay close to the original, but this is actually harder than the TV show. One typo and you are fucked. They should have used multiple choice instead or at least offer that as a mode. Or they could have limited the clues to only those with short correct inputs like "MIDI", and not "CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR".
Don't play Jeopardy on the NES, kids!

Metroidvania is a slang term for the games in the Castlevania series that ripped off Super Metroid and added RPG elements. Call them Metroid-likes (if collectible ability-based progression is something the game actually features), exploration platformers, 2D collectathons if you like, but Metroidvania is just wrong.

Ninja Gaiden III (NES). I'm playing a hacked version with infinite health and I'm dying all the time. Small platforms plus damage knockback. No knockback instead of infinite health would be easier. (At least there is no knockback when climbing or hanging on something – which is crucial knowledge. Later in the game there is a section where you jump from one tiny platform that moves through electro-shock fields to the next tiny platform doing the same thing (and below you is an abyss of course and there are also enemies). I have infinite lives and it takes me forever to progress because of how far apart the checkpoints are. This Godmode version is still harder than normal Megaman. There are no passwords! (I just read that the Japanese version had more health, more checkpoints, and passwords than the US version.) I'm now using the instant-save feature of the emulator while playing Godmode and still I'm thinking about giving up.

I want to love it. I really like the aesthetic. The sim aspects seem pretty deep. I like the idea of the lore and the world.
I don't like how you're outnumbered in every battle though. I think it's really fucking dumb that you can only use one ship at a time while the enemy can field their whole squadron. I can't fucking grok the aiming and it really annoys me when I whiff an entire salvo because the shitty reticle fucking sucks at indicating where my attack is going to go and the weapons are so fucking small you can't tell where they're aiming.

Probably because they’re shit at programming an ally AI or implementing a basic system to order your fleet. I love the game but Airships conquer the skies has it beaten in this aspect. Where fielding more than 30 ships at end game is the norm.
