comment How to explain to a new player that metagaming is encouraged in this group
Metagaming isn't inherently bad. It's often perceived to be in games where the DM takes an antagonistic role towards the PCs. However there are many RPGs where metagaming is encouraged (and even supported by the rules).

comment What is the impact of sharing GM notes with the players?
I think the game matters quite a bit for this... The difference between a homebrew D&D adventure, a D&D module or a session of something PbtA will very much affect how sharing GM notes should be viewed.

comment As a GM, how to react to players challenging contradictions in your narration?
In a fantasy setting with magic, or a SF setting with sufficient technology 3 could be quite interesting ... the raise undead spell/nanotech device must have been pretty good if the other PCs are only just now noticing the character is actually still dead.

comment Looking for a meta-RPG about escapism in RPGs and the reality of one's actions
Not exactly the answer, but well worth mentioning is the Fiasco playset Dysfunctions and Dragons.

comment How can I make “Empty” rooms interesting?
Honestly, if the PLAYER is carrying a crowbar they can have as much treasure as they want. If the PC goes to those lengths, I see no reason why they couldn't try and invest the effort to snag an extra 100gp so worth of melted copper. If they're inventive let them be.

Pretty sure Megadungeons aren't meant to be cleared out in one session.

comment Handling many similar opponents in combat
I wouldn't put it past a D&D party to try and kill all ~400 zombies. And possibly succeed.
