Just one thought that came to my mind after reading the last few pages:

That's why these days i only play or invest time on games that support mods:

Darkest Dungeon, Kerbal Space Program, even x-com(which i HATE without mods), Xenonauts, Rimworld and the list goes on.

Modern games needs mods, an army of modders will always rise to do some change to appeal almost every possible taste. (And specially in Darkest Dungeon i play both a full modded campaign and a no mod campaign at same time given how many changes mods can do to that game, and Kerbal Space Program has literaly mods for EVERYTHING... thing something you need, someone did a mod for it, and after looking the modlists you will find things you need and didnt even imagined existed :P)
