Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
Most roguelikes or lites or whatever you prefer to call this newer generation of permadeath roleplaying games, I play to win. Or, at least, to try to win: with the intention of victory, even if the actuality of it is unlikely. In Sunless Sea, I always play as if doomed.
