Which roguelike have you played the most?
« on: September 19, 2009, 07:42:23 AM »
Hi,
I am interested in seeing the relative popularity of major & semi-major roguelikes, if you'd like to help out you can vote on this poll on my blog:

Nethack and LambdaRogue are the only roguelikes I play sometimes.

And Kaduria, I hope ;)

As always,

Surprising!
I also still haven't played Crawl; gotta give it a try. Is "stone soup" the same game?
What I enjoy the most in roguelikes: Anti-Farming and Mac Givering my way out. Kind of what I also enjoy in life.

Stone soup is a branch off the original development.   It is the most current, up to date and balanced version of crawl as the original version development stalled a long time ago.   Play it now.

Also it probably is best to play Minotaur or Dwarf Berzerkers or Fighters at first.  Because casters are weak in the early game and crawl is brutal in the early game for new players.

Crawl Stone Soup Tiles probably fascinated me most (and longest) of all PC roguelikes. Regarding console roguelikes the only ones I spend more than 100 hours on were Fatal Labyrinth (and its Game Gear version Dragon Crystal) and the Ancient Cave Minigame in Lufia II.

If I count playing for bugtesting into the time I probably played my own games most, though.

I'm currently playing fatal labyrinth on the ps3; its quite good and easy to get into - but the interface is so cumbersome...

Well I prefer interfaces that only need 1-2 buttons, so I can't complain. The only bad thing about the menu browsing is that there's no "Go back" feature. You can either select the next option or close the whole menu. Other than that I thought the interface is perfect.

(assuming the PS3 version is the same as the Genesis version)

Thats what i mean; and i cant see the inventory (items) within a category without activating it.

Otherwise like context menus much more then 10 different keys.

Angband...though Lost Labyrinth 3.xx must be close.
Years ago i got into the genre through Moria and Hack.

After a no PC gap of over a decade i have picked up playing them again, but i still suck:)
I prefer David Gervais to Ricky Gervais...
