Anyway, just the ASCII environment still gives me the sense of awe and wonder I had back in 1980. I've played mostly Nethack until about two years ago, and have switched to Angband. Playing the former, I learned to be a little more circumspect about diving quickly, but Angband actually rewards it.

To a degree...
I read somewhere that it makes playing a game more like reading a book (vs movie) - with the opportunity to enhance our own imaginative creations. Maybe that is it for me. I also find that by working at an experience a little more, I gain greater attachment to the experience itself.
