IGN : Ask three different video game fans to define what a Roguelike is, and chances are, youre likely to get three very different responses: One might say “Oh yeah, those are like that game with the sexy greek gods!” Another might reply “No, you idiot, Hades is a Rogue-LITE. A roguelike is a game like Spelunky.” And another still might slam their hands on the table and shout, “The reason why they’re called rogueLIKES is because they’re LIKE the 1980s dungeon crawler rogue. None of those games are roguelikes at all!”
