When I knew nothing about Dwarf Fortress, I didn't know why people play it.

Then I learned a little about Dwarf Fortress, and I started to understand why people play it.

Now that I've been studying how to play Dwarf Fortress for a few days, I have no idea why anybody plays it.


@Nezchan I'm so intimidated by that game. It's as opaque, UI-wise, as NetHack and way more complicated. ;_;
