I have been playing Nethack and stuff for quite some time now and I love it. Let's have a thread for it.
What's your favourite Rogue-like?
What role do you like the most?
All things Rogue
I like Dungeon Crawl. Was never particularly fond of Nethack's overabundance of unfunny nerd in-jokes from the 80s or the way Angband didn't have persistent levels, but between the two I liked Angband more. I also played Larn for a while which I remember as being OK but kind of broken.
If a Diablo is fine too, I like that also.

ADoM and Dwarf Fortress are my favorites, but I haven't played Dwarf Fortress in a while. Sil is probably the most exciting roguelike I've played in a long time, since they've made AI that's actually clever and can chase or corner you, and knows better than to group up and follow you down hallways, calls for help and archers, etc., but I haven't played it enough to really call it a favorite yet.
I usually play Paladins, I like the balance between casting and heavy armor and melee. I'd play rogues/thieves more often, but they're usually unsatisfying in roguelikes and just play as very fast warriors.
Sort of like a priest + warrior class combination.
Played western roguelikes + some first babby's japanese in, like, 20 years or so but now only playing Japanese shit. Shame on me.
ADoM was very good though.
One of the strongest charas for me was Mindcrafter.
Bishi Bashi was an excelent game for the psone, consisting in a lot of mini-games, with an excellent and bizarre sense of humor. I have it :3 Now, is there some similar game for ps2?
I can't think of anything similar on the PS2, but on the PS1 there's also the Japan-only Bishi Bashi Special 3 (assuming you got the European game, which is a compilation of 1 and 2) and Salaryman Champ. The last Bishi Bashi game released in arcades was Bishi Bashi Online, and that never got a console port, but I suspect Konami might resurrect the series for the DS or Wii in future.
A bishi bashi on Wii, that sounds really interesting. Let's hope konami give us something like that in the near future.
is there any bishi bashi games for nintendo ds lite?
Incredible Crisis for the PS one, Great Fucking Game! (ps2= none that i know:()
There's a great bishi bashi iOS app available for free on the jp AppStore. It's F2P, but still pretty fun.
I'm a Japanese student. I'm writing article about Zelda series. And I have a question. That's question is "why do you like Legend of Zelda"? Please give me your power.
Because when I hit an old man, his bonfires wreak vengeance on me with magical balls.
I love it because of all of the little puzzles and stuff in the game, they actually force you to think and be creative if you want to finish the game. Games like Minish Cap were extremely hard when they came out (The only reason I consider them easier now is because everyone just Googles everything haha)
I do not like Legend of Zelda, it is probably one of the most overrated games in existence.
It's really just a mediocre puzzle game.
There was a thread like this in /anime/ and, although it seems to have died from lack of interest, I liked it. Let's try it here.
For instance, assuming >>0's favorite is THE GAME: What fun is a game that can't be won? Also, you just lost it.
My favorite: Metal Gear Solid 3
No protracted arguments in this thread please, just keep it going.
Imbalanced classes out the ass.
Card Fighters Clash
nobody ever heard of that shit
Strategy games are for uncool nerds
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
What are the best PSP games you guys have played?
Right now I've been playing Rengoku II, Mortal Kombat Unchained, and Tekken 6 but I'm looking for something new.
I used to play a lot of Loco Roco, Monster Hunter, Persona 3 Portable and Ridge Racer. Pretty solid games, check them out.
Ace Combat X
Brave Story: A New Traveler
Metal Slug XX
I found the Dracula X game to be some good shit. Also Soul Reaver but that has framerate issues
Seconding the Dracula X remake. Would've been cool if they'd included the SNES game in the package too. It's not nearly as good as the PC Engine one, but it's still worth checking out in its own right.
Anyone still playing it?
A lot of my friends are, but I'm not for lack of a 3DS.
I would love to play New Leaf, but that's the only game I would play if I had a 3DS, so thats kind of an expensive buy for me
I still play it every once in a while. Can't find people to play with though.
I don't have a 3DS. Replaying the DS Version since I got hyped again because of New Leaf
I am the worst mayor
Does anyone here game in Linux at all? If so, what games do you run, native or emulated (Wine/Crossover), and where do you foresee the future of gaming on Linux?
Lately, I've been using Wine to play a handful of games. Right now I'm getting Skyrim onto this machine through Crossover. I think the future of gaming on Linux is going to start looking good, with Gabe Newell talking about Linux being the future of gaming and the soon to be unveiled "Steam Box", which has been rumored to run some variant of Linux (Probably Ubuntu)
I mostly play DOSBox stuff. Other notable stuff, Doom, Quake (2) and Hexen II have some native ports, and I do some stuff via WINE such as the Disciples series and I forget what else. Some (S)NES/Genesis emulation too.
Most native games for Linux are kind of shit in my experience though, aside from Wesnoth and Dungeon Crawl.
Pro tip: ditch GNOME in favor or a light window manager like IceWM, as it's a bloated shitpig-express. Doing this switch can make a big performance difference for some stuff (DOSBox in particular.)
I'm annoyed by how few games are packaged in Debian. The StepMania, Aleph One, and Vega Strike packages have all been abandoned. Every so often there's a Request For Package and maybe someone shows interest, but it never goes anywhere. Compiling a lot of these games can be a pain.
Still, a lot of independent games are released for Linux now, and they're generally distributed as archives you can just extract and run.
I game only on Linux now. Mostly just playing Steam games, since that's what I played on windows anyway.
Also I play Quake Live sometimes.
I play Tuxcart Racer, does that count?
Valve's Linux based OS looks really promising. Back when I ran kubuntu, all I played were dungeon crawlers like DCSS and emulated consoles.
