I wish I had the energy or intelligence to attempt anything as complex as rougelikes.
I couldn't beat the original Fallout.

I use tiles for dungeon crawler when they have a lot of monster types, so I don't confuse them, and don't use them on simpler one like doomRL.

For dwarf fortress I keep ascii, because I'm used to it, and the information on screen are clear enough that I don't feel the need to use tiles. And also I found that DF tiles are ugly as hell.

>>2 DoomRL is also a good beginner RL. Very little enemies and weapons to remember of, so you don't have to fiddle to much with occult statistics. And you can choose level of difficulty to get use to it. And the tiles of doomRL is really good if you have problem with ascii.

ASCII for the same reason I like textboards, it reminds me of a simpler time.

Also half the time tiles look like vomit and actually afford me less visual information than ASCII does. If there was a tileset that looked seriously good, like hand crafted top of the line spritework good I'd probably use it. Unfortunately almost no one gives enough of a fuck to do all that work for free.

You can be damn sure that Clinton won't be in jail, the debt will be higher, the US will still be at war, and Americans will have even less freedom in 2020.;_ylt=A9mSs2uXjVNYsqoAZqpLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTEyamdudXNlBGNvbG8DaXIyBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjI2NTBfMQRzZWMDc3I-
