5 Reasons Roguelites Are So Rewarding

5 Reasons Roguelites Are So Rewarding


It can feel like there are so many titles and genres that any gamer would struggle to get through all of them in a lifetime, or even longer. Still, it’s always worth exploring as many games as possible, but if you’re tired of the typical RPGs or sports titles, you may want to check out roguelite games. These are becoming increasingly popular among both novice and experienced gamers due to how rewarding they are, but why are they so rewarding? 

They’re More Casual 

Roguelite games do not demand that you learn decades of lore, pay close attention to every piece of dialogue, or even pick up and search each rock you come across (looking at you, Tears of the Kingdom). Instead, it’s almost a meditative experience. They can feel repetitive, but that means the experience is more familiar because you know what you need to do while still offering enough action to keep you engaged. Since they are not so demanding, it makes it easier to choose a gamer computer as you won’t need to focus on the best specs, either.

They Are Easy to Pick Up 

These games are also much easier to pick up than other titles or genres. Everything is laid out in front of you, and while there’s still a slight learning curve, you never feel too overwhelmed. Furthermore, you don’t need to dedicate hours to enjoying the game. You can pick it up for ten to fifteen minutes before going to bed and feel satisfied that you’ve had a good, fun session.

You Can See How You Improve 

People naturally improve the more they play any game, but your progress is more evident with roguelites. Even if you don’t feel you’re improving, you will eventually get the hang of it. Checking out this beginners guide for Wall World can also teach you what to expect from the game and give you a great foundation without spelling everything out for you and making the game too easy.

They Mostly Come From Indie Developers 

While your big game devs have all the money to fill games with details that the average gamer may not even notice, roguelites mostly come from indie developers which is part of the charm. Here, gamers are closer to the source, making them feel like they are part of a more rewarding community. As these games don’t get the same marketing as other titles, it also has a hint of word-of-mouth about it that makes the players feel special. 

There Are No Microtransactions or Loot Boxes 

It’s no secret that that microtransactions are ruining the industry and even preying on people who don’t know any better. Roguelites won’t have any of that nonsense, so you can p[lay (and let your kids play) without the risk of losing hundreds of dollars on digital add-ons, skins, and more. Rather than trying to make as much money as possible, roguelites are more focused on offering a pure and perfect gaming experience for people who want to game more than anything else. 

Roguelite, Rogue-liked 

Roguelite games offer something different than your typical games. They are rewarding without being too overwhelming and that makes them excellent for those who don’t have much time or prefer a more casual experience.
