They must think the average user resembles something like this.

The game designer wasn't a storyteller or a movie director, but more like an architect. They set up the rules for a world, let you loose in it, and hoped you would have fun
Cute fact about Pharaohs; some, apparently, ceremonially ejaculated into the Nile to secure the requisite inundation of the Nile to replenish the farm-lands. Ruler of an empire, cheerfully knocking one off the wrist while an anxious crowd waits and an uncaring Nile sits there. Don't see any developer building that into a game.
Sadly. I wonder how we'd [the gaming media] react if they did.
In other words, I've got the feeling criticism is so terribly debased that we wouldn't be able to deal with originality even if we saw it.

I didn't get any sense of immersion...

That sounds interesting...
