It is heresy to flinch at the mere sight of ASCII.
Have you even so much as played any of the Big 5 (Rogue | Hack | Moria | Larn | Omega) or their derivatives (ADOM | Angband | Crawl | NetHack | ToME)?
I bet most of the casuals that go to /v/ haven't even heard of roguelikes until just now.
>Big 5 (Rogue | Hack | Moria | Larn | Omega) or their derivatives (ADOM | Angband | Crawl | NetHack | ToME)?
Yes, no, Yes, Yes.
Yes, Yes(Zangband), Yes, Yes and Yes.
Mostly ADOM, ZAngband and Crawl, but yeah. I prefer ASCII grapix over pixels and tiles and shit.
People that play Roguelikes or Hacklikes with tilesets should be shot.
WHERE THE FUCK IS MY @?
Every single time I run into a fountain I
dip a disposable item and hope to get a wishfrom it.
I don't mind games like Exile, which use tileset in their original form, but all those faggets who can't into @ are very strange to me.
I also love C:DDA
I also wish I could code, and not be a fagget about it. Would make a RL myself.
>I bet most of the casuals that go to /v/ haven't even heard of roguelikes until just now.
You do realize "roguelike" is the current buzzword of the indie scene, right? One that gets a lot of flak on /v/ simply because most advertised "roguelikes" tend to be nothing like Rogue.
As for most of /v/ having not played Rogue, that isn't a hard guess, considering most people haven't played it. That's like being asspained that someone hasn't played a CRTAD.
And I bet you haven't, faggot.
At least I know you're telling the truth.
I've read into rogue and NetHack, and really wish I could enjoy them, but fuck me the ascii shits just too bad.
I even tried a tileset, but really, its like a less immersive tabletop game. I just don't find having to stretch my imagination that far to visualize whats going on fun. If I did, I'd play tabletop shit like DnD.
Same story for dwarf fortress.
I agree its a casual filter and you probably play good games but I'd prefer my bullshit die at any moment fun but frustrating games to have more graphics.
That was my initial reaction upon seeing the OP image. However I took a few moments to read it and found that it was not me he was looking after.
just because theyre the first doesnt make them any good by todays standards. i play plenty of roguelikes, have a roguelike folder on my desktop but i dont have the fucking 80s roguelikes on them
That is all good and well, and your taste is your own. The man in OP was saying that those are the BIG FIVE, that's all. The forefathers, so to speak. Enjoy whatever you enjoy.
I'VE BEEN PLAYING ADOM FOR 10 YEARS NOW (with admittable breaks)
I NEVER EVEN WENT INTO TOEF
I HAD A VERY PROMISING CHARACTER JUST NOW
GRAY ELF WIZARD, HAD ALL THE MORGIA, ALL THE SPELLS, JUST WRECKED THE SHIT OUT OF REHETEP
AND THEN I FUCKING MAGIC MISSILED MYSELF TO DEATH BECAUSE I FUCKED UP THE TRAJECTORY
I will never beat this game, anons.
