I was just pondering, how many of you guys and gals have ever played Nethack and more importantly, how many have beat it :p

Feel free to share your high scores with the world...which I'm sure you already have.

I started it once. Spent hours and got mightly confused: easily the most complex CRPG I've even encountered.

Never won. Played for a very long time too.

I'm more of an ADOM guy myself. But I've played Nethack. Never got the hang of it, but taking pictures of monsters was cool.

Is this that freeware ASCII rpg? I've thought of DLing it but (as much as it pains me to sound so shallow) I really don't have the patience to convince myself that ASCII characters repersent little men and monsters.

There is a version with a simple graphical tileset: exactly the same game without the ASCII characters.

I personally prefer zAngband. More sensible than Nethack, as you tend not have to keep searching for hidden doors, and the shops are better as well.

Yeah, zAngband is definately more of a "traditional" RPG. Traditional meaning that you can actually grow attatched to your character without having to worry too much that you're about to fall down a pit and get eaten by the demon waiting at the bottom.
