I guess Dark Souls would be considered a rogue like?


No it wouldn't.

In fact, contrary to most people's belief, Dark Souls, while a great game, doesn't not qualify as any type of genre.

It is an RPG action game and nothing more.

Azure Dreams
Dark Cloud

Not sure if you have a PS2 and a GBC but those are two of my favorites.

So what is a "rogue like" these days then?

There is a reason why we learned to spell and punctuate when we were five years old.

Random dungeons. When you lose, you often start over from the beginning.

Out of the ones not already suggested that I've played (I second Diehard Dungeon), Elona is free. Although it's not done and won't be for a long time, there's a lot of content regardless.
