Your timing is uncanny Slash as I'd just watched the 100% TAS of Kirby's Amazing Mirror the other day and thinking that the Kirby backdrop would work well for Roguelike sensibilities.   :D  With Pokemon being semi "done" otherwise, Kirby and Ninja Gaiden have my vote.

Super Rogueio Bros sounds like a winner to me.

Oh, come on! It's got to be Carmen Sandiego! The spyness of it all! The setting being cities and landmarks, being able to travel, maybe going underground in the sewers! Man, it'd be AWESOME! Totally non-linear too!

"I think a Pikmin roguelike would kind of rock. "

"A Donkey Kong roguelike(as in Donkey Kong Country and similar, not the arcade one) would also rule, and it's old enough to be classic. "

"do a space shooter roguelike. "

"of course, there's only one true answer: Ultima Underworld "

"and a second place would be "double dragon" :) "

"Shin Megami Tensei"

"There's one in particular that I think would be perfect to fit in roguelike format : System Shock 2. "

EVO, although it's technically not a Series =(
But the whole concept of continously evolving your creature and progressing through evolution would fit perfectly for a Roguelike. Each major evolution step could also represent a major shift in visual appeal. :O

If you choose Metal Gear, call it Metal Gear Ascii.

Armoured System Cog: Iron Infinity? (A.S.C.I.I)
Anticipated System Crash: Inject Inhibitors
Ancillary Sonar Collimator: Infinity Inside

Ooops, step too far? Now I want to think of a reasonable acronym!

System Shock 2 would be pretty awesome. Been dying to play that game a while, but Vista (ugh) doesn't like it.

System Shock was brutal. I got it at around 2pm and thought I'd give it a whirl. I never saw any enemies early in the game but still had to quit and leave it until daylight. It's so scary! Love it! It's not DOOM-like scary, as in BOOOO! It's the ambience, the atmosphere!

Pokemon and Metal Gear tied in the top with 36 votes each, Mario follows with 29.

Shin Megami Tensei, whatever that is, seems to be a favorite :P

Out of boringness I did a hi-level ER model for a potential pokemonRL...

http://slashie.net/share/pokeworld_ER.png

I also mocked up Carmen, Sandiego...



I will also refresh that good old Metal Gear Mockup



Here goes pokemon again



I will do the Mario one tomorrow... probably..

that metal gear one is really cute.  you should do that. :D

my favorite non-RL to RL transformation has got to be doomRL though.  By the way, i liked your castlevaniaRL
