What are some good dungeon crawler games? Gauntlet Dark Legacy is one of my favorite games of all time with countless hours of gameplay with friends and family. I'm hoping there are some similar games out there that still hold up.
Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 1&2Champions of Norrath 1&2
>>7965125What's the difference between dungeon crawler and action RPG (hack&slash like Diablo)?
This is the gold standard of 6th gen dungeon crawlers
>>7966839>literal who>gold standard compared to baldur's gate dark alliance and gauntletno.
Non retro trash, never played it. Here ya go OP Ill help ya out.
>>7966846>baldur's gate dark allianceDidn't that game just get rereleased and get bombarded with bad reviews? Maybe you shouldn't let nostalgia blind you and play more games brother.
>>7966826an action RPG can be a dungeon crawler but a dungeon crawler is not necessarily an action RPG. a dungeon crawler in the most traditional sense would be something akin to might and magic or even king's field where you explore open-ended or even generated environments and there's a fairly heavy focus on interaction, puzzle solving etc. A third person action RPG can have those same elements while focusing more on combat, so it could conceivably be considered a crawler too. Gauntlet probably isnt what most oldheads mean when they refer to this genre but it's a legitimate use since the game is literally about exploring endless dungeon mazes, even if the questing and interaction are simplistic.

>>7966851>bad reviewsdoot doot, NPC alert
>>7966862You responded to my comment with prejudice so i did the same
>>7966868it's not really prejudice -- i've actually played all of these games, and you haven't. nobody thinks Busin "Wizardry Alternative" is better than Dark Alliance you retarded faggot. go home.
>>7966881Oh i'm sure you played that japanese game, especially considering you don't know that it was also released in the west with a different name.Anyway keep playing those western games on consoles lol.
>>7966890I've actually played it on PCSX2 and it's a piece of shit. sorry.
You can't go wrong with Might & Magic or Wizardry, also Shin Megami Tensei games are pretty cool
>>7966851It was pretty fun to be honest
>>7966851>Didn't that game just get rereleased and get bombarded with bad reviews?No, it didn't. Learn how to google before posting please.
>>7965125>YOU ARE NOW ENTERING......YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE
>>7965125I don't know how I could stand Gauntlet as a kid, honestly. It's overly simplistic even compared to other action dungeon crawlers. Still, those good times sure happened.
>>7966839a shame it never left japan, Tales of the forsaken land was an absolute masterpiece
>>7969386That cover is from the japanese version of Tales of the Forsaken Land, its the sequel Busin 0 Neo that sadly didn't get a western release.
God damn I love this game
>>7965343Champions of Norrath / CoN return to arm (1 & 2) are by far the strongest in the genre for me for dungeon crawling, check them out both ps2
>>7969474CoN has a retarded difficulty spike compared to baldurs gate I found. Perhaps my starting build was bad or I missed a good secret but I got FILTERED.
>>7969601Gauntlet Dark Legacy
>>7965343Both boring as hell compared to OP's pic
>>7965343Also, the Hunter: the Reckoning games. The first one is Xbox/GameCube multiplat, the second one is PS2 exclusive, the third one is Xbox exclusive.
