I don't know how to exactly describe it but it just feels like a game of 'modifiers'. Like sure, there's gameplay diversity and I admit sometimes they can be entertaining but for the most part it just feels dry after a while.
I'm not even min-maxing or anything. I'm just playing the game casually and it feels boring. Like, there's all these modifiers that either give you some kind of positive or negative bonus to your empire or they just end up being these roundabout ways of achieving some empire bonus, and the roundabout tends to not be rewarding or entertaining to the mind. The Shroud is a very good example, sure it has all this nice psionic paint to it but once you take it off it just feels like an rng event that you have to wait 5 or 10 years to do again (i dont remember the exact time).
And then there's the wait. Honestly, I can deal with those mundane periods of game-play as long as the pay-off is worth it in the end, but that pay-off rarely sparks my interest.
Some people suggest role-playing. I tried to, but honestly – once I started role-playing, I just turned off Stellaris and opened up Microsoft Word to write a story.
Who knows, maybe the game just isn't for me, maybe I need more mods, who knows.
And, of course if you enjoy Stellaris, please do not be alarmed by my post. Different people, different minds, I understand that, no need to hate me.
To all you chaps out there. Yes, I know that all games are painted up programs. What I mean is that I find those games to be capable of putting up that illusion of it being a game better than other games. Like shit, if that was the problem, I wouldn't enjoy games like Hearthstone because it'll all just be a bunch of modifiers interacting with each other. Hell, I even enjoyed Eve Online for some time, and people called that "spreadsheet in space".
