Roguelike is a shit genre name to begin with.

Remember back in the 90s every fps was called a doom-clone? Then someone with a brain realised that shit wasn't going to work in the long run and coined the phrase first-person shooter? Notice that we don't have any autistic debates about it now because the genre's very name succinctly summarises what defines it? Imagine if we had stuck with doom-clone, or even gone with doomlike. Then when games like portal got made we would have started getting complaints about how obviously different from doom portal is. We would have then had people throwing the phrase "doomlite" around to try and compensate.

That's what's happened to roguelike. The genre name should have been dropped for something better a long time ago.

84aed3 No.14326663


No, eat shit. If we drop the Roguelike name and go with some broad, generalizing term like 'permadeath-ASCII-dungeoncrawler' then future games will continue deviating from the original until the genre stops resembling what it started out as (kinda like fps games!). Roguelites help make a distinction between actual roguelikes and games that have fucking nothing to do with Rogue.

96fd14 No.14326668


The problem is that roguelikes are a subgenre of RPG with very nuanced characteristics. What do you propose we call it? Permadeath dungeon crawlers? Each name I could think of would bring endless autismal fits over the name not being accurate enough. Roguelike is vague enough for autists who disagree to inject their own idea of what it is, which prevents all discussions on games in the genre from devolving into semantics.

"Allegedly" (this is based on self-proclaimed MMO oldfags that I found on Jewgle), "toon" was a term that arose so that RPG players could feel less attachment or show that they don't identify with a character they generated. As a guy who's played tabletop RPGs for 10 years, I find this to be very retarded, but I wouldn't be too surprised if it were true because even most tabletop RPG players are very retarded. There are some traditions, like giving human traits to the dice or RNG, that are fun, but that just sounds very cringeworthy, like the person saying it honestly thinks their dumb character is a perfect representation of themselves in high fantasy.

So posers then. You can go on urbandictionary right now, a site founded in 1999, and the oldest entry for toon as used in MMOs is in 2004 which even then mocks the term. It was never a "MMO oldfag" thing, period.

No, it was used in EverQuest. I know a guy who used to play EQ and knew others who were so addicted to EQ it ruined their life and they used the term.

I think "Please send tell" has stuck around because it abbreviates to "pst," which indicates that you want to whisper something to someone. It's a play on words.

Mission packs and map packs are not equivalent to an act or episode. To begin with, the former two imply expanded content over the base game

Furthermore, a map pack does not necessarily have mission-based or story-based content. They are strictly just maps

Scene comes from 3D modeling programs; at the time, their primary use was in creating movies and TV shows

I've never heard sentence used in that way. Can you provide examples?

>permanent death was what defined Rogue

Yeah, I'm taking this bait. Permanent death has never been defining to Rogue or Roguelikes. It's the unique turn and tile based gameplay that you can't find in any other genre. Not the permadeath, not the procedural generation, not complexity, not ASCII. It's a genre of gameplay based on a those specific criteria.

Also, "Adventure Game" is the single worst excuse for a genre name I've ever heard. It explains literally nothing. How many games can be described as "an adventure"? What kind of gameplay is "an adventure"?

"Frag" originally appeared in Doom, and it came there from an actual military term "fragging", which stands for a deliberate killing of a fellow soldier/officer. Considering all players in Doom belong to the same faction, its use is somewhat justified.

Stage = World or equalivant. If someone asks how far along in the game you are, or, what "stage" you are at in the game you'd tell them what world you're on.

Level = Level or equalivant. The level within the world.

Map = Specific portions of a level, i.e, there's multiple stages to a castle. Alternatively, it can be used to group distinct types of levels together. "That level is a castle map" or "That level is a map with floaty islands"

Wavedashing, Waveshining, etc, is called that because when performed correctly it looks like you're moving like a wave does in the ocean

One hilarious term that I used to encounter in online games that seems to have died down (though I occasionally still see it in German sessions) is "nab" for noob. How did it arise?

One ironic spelling for noob is "nub", people would start missing what it supposed to mean reading it like the actual word (as in a small knob of some kind) and started making ironic misspellings of that, thus "nab".
