Your top 3 Rogue-Likes on PC?

#1Sexy_L4DYPosted 7/26/2014 12:22:21 AM
Roguelikes are one of my favorite sub genres, It's one of those sub genres I'll never get sick of and I'll always be interested when a new one comes along.

1. Dungeon of the Endless - I love this game. The characters, music is incredible, the pixel art is beautiful and very addictive. Difficulty spikes when you hit the fourth dungeon. I should probably look up strategys to having a good party and researching the right gadgets.
2. Eldritch - Kind of a 3D Spelunky, very hard and fun.
3. Rogue Legacy - I thought I'd like this game more than I do but it's still very fun and addictive. The fact it plays way better with a controller kind of bugs me.

Spelunky is my all time favorite but I have that on my Vita so I thought i'd choose rouge-likes that I own on my PC.
FTL is also great but I've only played it for like an hour or two so I can't really say it's one of my favorites yet.

#1 - The Binding Of Isaac - Incredibly simple, incredibly addictive. 257 hours clocked on Steam, 3 hours longer than Skyrim. If that doesn't convey how fun and more-ish it is, I don't know what will

#2 - Ragnarok - The early '90s one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragnarok_%28video_game%29), not the MMO of the same name (different IP.)

#3 - Torchlight 2 (Hardcore mode) - I guess it depends how you define "Rogue-like", but I'd like to think of perma-death as the primary criterion.

I respectfully disagree about Rogue Legacy. On paper it sounds like a great concept. In practice, I didn't find it to be a whole lot of fun.

Spelunky was almost on the list, until I realized how little time I'd put into it (only 15hrs) compared to the listed three

Umm, no. Your definition is completely wrong. It isn't a rogue-like by any stretch of the imagination.

Nethack, FTL, Sword of the Stars: The Pit... Begrudgingly... Still f***ing mad at that last floor.

Could you stretch my imagination and enlighten me as to your definition then please? I seem to encounter the same problem with your nomination of Diablo 1. Great game, undoubtedly one of my favourites. But no perma-death makes it nothing more than a standard dungeon crawler to me.
