Dwarf Fortress is a truly special endeavor. The gameplay is unique and engrossing. And completely maddening, in a the best way. The quirky bitmap graphics are mesmerizing. Each time you start a new game, it's a new world with new areas to explore and new chances to make your kingdom last longer than the last one. But the music! Amazing! Honestly the music is my favorite part.

In a lot of ways DF is similar to the early days Minecraft. It was just "special". You can get lost in it for hours on end.

Girlfriend - "You want to go out tonight?" Me - "Nah I'm good. I am just going to play Dwarf Fortress for 10 hours..." Girlfriend - "Well I am going to go to Dim Sum Garden!" Me "Iiee decisions, decisions!"
