Any of you guys play roguelikes?
« on: April 30, 2013, 01:13:05 PM »
So I know many people that play many different types of games but none of them seem to play roguelikes so I have no one to talk with about them. So I was wondering if any of you guys here play roguelikes? If any of you guys do play roguelikes what ones have you played and what ones are you favorite?

Ones I have played (that I could think of off the top of my head):
Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead
IVAN and CLIVAN (an IVAN variant)
Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup
Tales of Maj'Eyal (probably better known as its abbreviation: TOME)
UnReal World
Dwarf Fortress (some people count it as a roguelike some people don't)
FLT: Faster Than Light (like DF some people count it as a roguelike some people don't)

My top 3 favorite of those would probably be Elona, Incursion, and TOME in that order.

If any of you are looking to get into roguelikes I would suggest start with TOME or Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
Can we get this guy a "thread necromancer" member status or something?

i started pc gaming playing roguelikes.  started with..."rogue" ofc, was only one of my friends that ever beat it (find amulet and successfully bring it back to surface).

"moria" was the next one:
played that as it was being developed in the mid 80's

Angband is my fav

when i first saw diablo years after i first played roguelikes i instantly told all my friends that this game took the arcade game "gauntlet" and crossed it with "Rogue".

its why i gravitate to arpgs like diablo, titan quest, sacred series, poe, etc...they remind me so much of my roguelikes.
