Mine would have to be ADOM, Spelunky, and DoomRL.

it's always been nethack. I've played a lot of adom and dabbled mostly with the *bands, IVAN, dwarf fortress, and crawl (mostly pre-stone soup), but nothing compares to nethack.

It's depressing to think that I've been playing rogue/hack/nethack on and off for over 20 years and have ascended a grand total of... once.

EDIT: wait!! I forgot about Incursion! Incursion blows me away already, and when the final version comes out, it's going to ruin my life.

Oh yeah, incursion is awesome.  I think it'll be the next big "thing" in roguelikes.  I don't play it much yet because it's still a bit too buggy for me.  My best character is just kind of stuck because once I get to a certain point in the dungeon it just crashes.

They also make it way too hard to be good on their morality axis.  I don't have a problem with good being something harder to attain than evil, but you have to be such a pansy pushover doormat with every single encounter because apparently if you get ambushed by a monster that is purely and inherently evil, it's bad to defend yourself with lethal force.

Crawl all day, baby.
I used to tear up some NetHack, but after DCSS everything else pales in comparison. I'm trying to broaden my RL horizons though; I've tried nearly every game available but haven't gotten far into but a handful of them.

Crawl, Dwarf Fortress, and Mage Guild are my favorites.

I fallen away from DF as it doesn't have magic, and barely has fire, both of which I love. (I was purely a mage in Fable, and I never play anything but a caster in DnD/Crawl
