I'm working my way through Wiz6 for the first time right now, trying to find a party build I like (currently in the belfry, grinding bats). I'd be delighted to find more of these games. Thankfully, I still have Wiz7 to go, plus all of the Might&Magics, and the Bard's Tales, praise be to DosBox.

I've been sorely tempted to have a go at creating a console-only Wizardry-style game, but I've got way too much else going on to take on another project. It was nice to see Devil Whiskey, though I wasn't much enamored with the result. There's probably more out there like it, but I think we'll only ever see the like from small, indy houses.

And then by coincidence, while looking for some console programming info for a test app I need, I just now stumbled upon this site: http://www.taat.fi/tmdc/

It never occurred to me that you could do things like this or this with ASCII graphics.

Obviously us cranky old CRPGers aren't then only ones who still like consoles.
