I can't get into this game, because the point is apparently to lose.  And I don't play games to lose.

That's not the point. Let's use this metaphor - the objective is to have the biggest mess. This is a game where you can literally have rivers of blood, where a horse can kick a dwarf from 3 levels high, have the dwarf break his ribs and lose a finger, have a doctor patch up the guy with wooden false ribs. Then a necromancer comes, resurrects the finger and the finger tries to poke the doctor's eye out.

You build huge monuments and watch them come crashing down. The player with the messiest explosions wins.

You only lose Dwarf Fortress when you've got nothing left to learn. :)
