Stossel is on a distinguished road
Roguelikes also don't have any sort of advertising machine. They have their advocates, but outside of an IRC channel or these forums (both of which someone who doesn't play roguelikes isn't likely to stumble across), you're going to have a hard time finding advocates. I think they'd enjoy more popularity if more people simply knew about them. The graphics will turn many away, but there are a lot of gamers out there, and not all of them will ignore great gaming just because of the graphics.

A few articles on some gaming sites as to why roguelikes are still awesome and better than most of what you can buy off the shelf would bring in a few folks I bet.
