Roguelikes are a sub-genre of RPG games. They are typically dungeon based, with either ASCII style graphics or very simple pixel tile art. They tend to be turn based games with procedurally generated dungeon maps, random spawning items, weapons and skills.
Of all the things I geek out about, Final Fantasy is probably my favourite thing to spaz over. So as anyone who knows me is already well aware – Final Fantasy XV came out recently. I’ve managed to pry myself away for a few hours whilst I write about it before I forget everything that happened, and what my thoughts are on the game.
So I’m staying up late with nothing to do for an hour or two, and it’s been a while since I wrote a retro game review. I’m currently eagerly following the development of a new title in this series. So it seems like a good idea to review the original title and rave about why it is one of my favourite nostalgic games ever.
