    Not so sure about shit, but definitely uninteresting.
    Don't think I've ever played so few of an RPG list.

    A propos, Hades is not a roguelike, and as I see, not an RPG.
    https://hades.gamepedia.com/Gameplay_mechanics#Abilities
    What the fuck. Shame on anyone who considers arcade with number or two the "RPG". What next is an RPG? Strife?
    Also felipepepe added shitton of weaboo shit and random games (collecting card game? Really), but could not be bothered to add bona fide Ultima clone Nox Archaist until Infinitron said so. And still not added a Note of the Outskirts.

    How so? A roguelike is a game where you explore a randomly generated dungeon. Your progress resets on death, and you can use a different build every time.
    Roguelite is the same but only 99% of the progress resets and there is small progress between runs.

    Hades definitly fits into this definition.

    You fight with gifts from the gods which reset on every run and heavily modify your gameplaystyle.

    Or do you go with a retro definition that a roguelite has to be turn based?

    That's not that roguelike is.
    http://www.roguebasin.com/index.php?title=Berlin_Interpretation

    So, you know that Hades and its ilk is not a roguelike.
    Are you retarded, fucking decline enabler? Roguelike is always turn-based. Invent (or use "roguelite") your own term for your turds.
    You are a shame to your :obviously: forum name.

    I don't feel invested enough into the genre to argue with this, Hades is a roguelite anyway because it has progression that stays between runs. That alone makes it 100% roguelite.
    But sure, action combat automatically makes it a roguelite is fine by me. I do not particularily like the edge cases like Spelunky anyway which use action combat and hard roguelike mechanics.


    Three times may you guess.

    Rightfully so cause there are ot fiished yet.

    Yeah that's absolutely disgustig.
    I thought to play it at some poit i the future, but after I saw this - o way.

    ot alwys - there is classic Trascedece space roguelike, that is real-time, but stays absolutely true to rogue-like mechaics ad spirit.
    But that's the oly exceptio I kow of.

    You should try Note of the Outskirts. It's pretty good Wizardry clone. Wizardry 1, of course, but beggars could be not choosers. In 2020 it's choice between that, Ultima 3 clone, or another Wizardry 1 clone (Labyrinth of Lost Souls) where scantily-clad anime girls whimper in high-pitched voices.
    It's a dark age again, and we don't have Vogel, Proudfoot or that author of Aethra Chronicles (Lawrence?) now.

    I got more of a Dragon Wars vibe from what little I've played.

    It's a mixture of a lot of stuff. I'd say mostly Dragon Wars, Wasteland, and early Wizardry and Might & Magic.

    System-wise, indeed, it's similar to Dragon Wars, with its combat or array of skills, but when you try to identify something and your identifier trembles in fear - you always know that it's something Wizardry inspired. Still it has a big map with a lot of exploration, closer to Dragon Wars or early M&Ms, instead of small, but great dungeon of the previous game (To Hell with Guns). Should play some more...
