You remember playing Rogue, right? Of course you do. It’s one of those ubiquitous classics that everybody has gone through at some point or another, no matter how indirectly. Trying to say that you haven’t experienced Rogue is like trying to say that you’ve never played Tower Defense, but happen to have developed an obsession with Plants vs Zombies.
In any case, Gamasutra now has a comprehensive history of Rogue sitting pretty in its features section. This is an awesome article with links to even more awesome articles, and it’s sure to send a shiver of nostalgia creeping up your @’s spine.
Read now: if not for the fond memories, then at least for some basic enlightenment about one of the most important videogames of all time. We’re being super serials, here.
UPDATE: Also, there’s a really cool NetHack game guide over at GameSetWatch. Perfect for people who love the game but just, you know, aren’t really all that good at it.
