Yes, indeed.

And I am fully aware of how much people will laugh at me.

(Besides, I don't remember Transport Tycoon having "candyland" setting. It looked much different to me. Or was it Railroad Tycoon ?)

I don't say that they are bad from a technical perspective.

It's just that I don't like the setting.

I still believe, after all of these years, that it is possible to present "mature" themes in an non-dark & non-gritty way.

Indeed. Nowadays I'm actually watching myself withdraw more and more from PC games, and rather invest my energy elsewhere.

Another solution would be to buy myself a Wii and play Mario games.

(And the British "Retro" magazine reminded me in/with their current issue that there indeed once was a Mario RPG !)
