I have no issues with retro games in general but I will not give a game a second chance if "The commands are all over the keyboard" or if I can't figure out what and/or how I'm supposed to do fairly quickly.

Back then things were very different for me: I remember one of my first pc games was the first Civilization that someone gave me a copy of (yes I was a filthy thief). No manuals no instructions or anything + I didn't understand english so well yet. I had absolutely no idea what that game was about or how it worked and what I could do with it - and I didn't know anyone that could tell me, but I was happy to just sit there for days and days slowly figuring it out until I could play properly… and play I did… until I beat it again and again.

I just don't have that kind of patience any more (+ I have great respect for a well designed, intuitive interface)
