    I prefer a solid experience with everything just right over buttcex hard. I do like me my roguelikes, though. They're simple, and difficult to an enjoyable degree, and it feels great seeing as though most of them have a new experience with each time you lose.

    Games that are just difficult because they can be don't sit right with me for very long. I'm looking right at SMB when I say that.

    By simple I mean the experience feels simple. You start a game, get it going, do shit, and then you most likely end up dying, and you start again. The point is simple, the gameplay may be simple depending on the game. Most of what I play is Binding of Isaac, FTL, and Don't Starve, though.

    I'm seriously not trying to be pedantic its just rougelikes are inherently complex and usually require a lot of planning to succeed at, so its like the opposite of what you're describing.

    Engi ship is alright. Pretty useful off the bat since it uses the drone, stun, and auto-heal thing. I usually stick with the standard ship whatever it's called. Can't go wrong with the burst lasers, it also has a much more fire-friendly hull layout. Venting fires in the Engi ship can be a bitch.
