rogue or anything rogue-like - nethack comes to mind 8-)

I started playing it in the mid 80's. Still play it today. I have it on my iPad, Android phone, Mac Desktop and a whole slew of
Unix boxes (SGI/Sun/IBM/DEC) and even (ughhh!) a PC/Linux laptop... It's usually the first thing that gets
installed/compiled on a new machine/platform.

The only experience that will top the above, is feeding some quarters in a "Fun House" or "Black Knight" pinball machine...
