To play Factorio, you need a little logistic "nerdiness", cause that's what this game is about. Your spaceship crashed on a planet full of hostile creatures and your goal is to build a rocket that can get you the hell out of there. Sounds pretty straight forward, however the way you do this is far from simple and gets you sucked into this 16-bit style nostalgic masterpiece easily. By gathering recourses you create components, weapons and/or machinery that are needed to create and research more elaborate machinery and weapons to eventually build the rocket and destroy curious creatures that want to, eat you I guess. I think it's no spoiler to reveal you need A-LOT-OF (different) components to create others and build a country size factory with fully automated logistics. Combined with a hurdle of monsters that constantly want to crash your factory-party, this is a real challenge !
I lost count of all the times I realized my logistic planning lacked and restarted the game with a "clean sheet". Yes, in my case it took a lot of trial and error to get the logistic automation to work. But that's the greatness of this game, that's why you keep playing it, to build a better working factory next time. So for people with no patience or determination, this game will be a pain in the ass. It will take a while to get your rocket in the air if you don't use any mods and/or cheats, but man it's so rewarding when you finally do. Factorio has a great fan base with mod developers that create content and tools for the game, but also the original game settings give more than enough options to play this game the way you like. You can even build your own scenario using the custom map editor.
