Everyone should be playing Cities: Skylines. It's pretty fantastic even with the commercial zone bug although the mod fix seems to have corrected that problem for me. I have about 75,000 on 3 tiles so far and I can't stop building. I love this game!
The commercial zone bug was fixed in the last patch.

My buildings are rarely devolving and it seems impossible for population growth ever to be in the negative.
It will go negative, but in cycles. When you have a lot of seniors and they die, you get a year or so of negative growth where you lose ~ 10% of your population. It stabilizes and continues to grow again the next year, only to repeat after the cims' 6 year life-cycle.
If you continue to provide for your cims and build according to demand, it'd be hard to see why your population would decline?
That said, it is not a terribly difficult game, no. If your city fails, it'll fail in the beginning, and even then it's not that hard to recover.
