There'll be a slight delay on writing up the individual winner, runner up and highly commended entries as I've only just got back from an overseas trip and need to put my feet up for a little while.

Joseph said...

I've got an excel file that you can sort easily if you want...

John Harris said...

Oh, TOME again. Dammit, I had my fingers crossed for ADOM.

Trefall said...

Will there be a RLR episode talking of the top 10-20 games or something? Will be very interesting to see if there are any hidden gems in the top tier this year.

Got to give it to TOME4 though, with all the publicity of ADOM this year, it's well accomplished to win! Though cheating the poll is a bit too easy to really consider a winner... I think the more interesting thing is to look at the top 10-20 games, and look for titles you might not have heard of, or wouldn't expect in the top tier.

And thus, I find that an RLR episode on the topic would be very interesting.

sort them! sort them! sort them! sort them!

Alessus said...

I don't really understand... Where is the original classic NetHack? How can you do "the best roguelike" poll without it?

ethan said...

im sure nethack has enough recognition; lets let some new ones shine eh

roocey said...

My understanding is that the poll primarily includes roguelikes that had a release this year. I think it has been a few years since Nethack had an official release.

onyhow said...

Nethack's last relese is, what, 9 years ago? So no...

Also pleasantly surprised to see Unreal World pretty high up!

Alessus said...

Oh, I think I didn't seem to understand the main thing of this poll. I didn't know it only covers last-year released roguelikes. That's OK then.
But you know, I don't seem to like other roguelikes. Maybe I'm just used to NetHack, but every other game seems to be wrong, and doesn't touch me... I only tried ADOM, Dungeon Crawl and ToME except for NetHack, but it should be enough I think, as they are the most notable ones as far as I know. I don't like Dungeon Crawl and ToME at all, but ADOM is very good. Though I can't play it for a long period of time though, NetHack only.
