    The issue is casuals find a game like AoD way too hard (will most likely not try playing it or scream for all to see on YouTube if they do) and the younger "gamer" generation thinks the likes of Fallout 1 is hard. They then write poor reviews where they cry about how hard it all is. Since we know that with the snowflake generation, failure is not an option and you all get a red ribbon. Despite AoD having some instances of failure actually result in a favorable outcome anyways (assuming you didn't die), they don't want to deal with the challenge. You can tell by a lot of wording that their idea of a game is to be the chosen demi-god "hero," running around and raping enemies with ease. Playing a character with limitations and spending a good deal of time (or perhaps the whole time) as a general nobody is not appealing to this crowd. Too bad though, because it makes Age of Decadence a true gamer's game in it's challenge and much more sweet once you forge a path through it.

    Game needs a "ride-off into the sunset with Miltiades" romance ending.

    It has one but to romance Miltiades you must have CHA 12 and INT < 3.

    In these times, even joking about such things is dangerous.

    It needs an Agathoth romance option.

    Newest GOG review (3/5):

    One of the best negative (I'm disregarding rating here and judging this by text only) reviews I've read (which isn't hard considering that most of the other ones are of the "it's too hard" variety) but still there are many false claims like "there are rarely more than 3 dialogue options" or suggesting that there isn't much flexibility for character building (yes, pure fighter or pure talker are main builds but there are dozens more interesting ones that sometimes require some ingenuity to work).
