So, I wanted to make a post about discovering a love for dungeon crawlers in the “what’s your favourite genre” thread. But if I’m honest with myself it’s really not my FAVOURITE genre. It’s a genre I enjoy now, but there are still thing I like more.
So this is a thread for that experience. What’s a genre you knew existed, but didn’t think you would like until you found The One Game that made you see the appeal? Or even maybe genres you DIDNT know existed
For me and Dungeon Crawlers, I had played a lot of older school games. Your Eye of the Beholders your Legend of Grimrocks and just didn’t really get it. but then I tried Etrian Oddyssey IV and found myself enjoying the way that game is structured. And especially enjoying the whole map-making aspect. I then went back and played more older school dungeon crawler and really enjoyed them with this new context.
