What you write really conjurs up the essence of what makes G1 (and G2) so thrilling. The game is hard - especially at the beginning. Enemies can one and two-shot you. But every stat increase, every incremental weapon/armor upgrade has meaning and makes the game hugely interesting.

Just a 5 point increase in strength causes the thoughtful player to consider, 'hmmm, maybe I can eek out a victory with those lurkers now…'
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
