Player's Plaza / Stupid marketing of non roguelike games
« on: February 17, 2019, 04:30:05 PM »
I know that this topic is talked about daily, but i just want to get this off my chest.
It's extremely infuriating how marketing of games that are not roguelikes exploits the genre. Why do they insist that their games are roguelikes? Is it "cool" being a roguelike?
I don't even know how is this possible, who would think to exploit a niche genre?
I hope that this permadeath and procedular levels trend dies out. Maybe then real roguelikes will have a resurgence.
This has gone so far that like every single month some fake roguelike comes out and thousands more people argue on the internet hooooow much they love dem roguelikes, only for true fans to correct them and then we are called pendantic. It's not "Not a big deal, definitions change" I don't want for another genre to die.
