What I find interesting is that in Japan, the genre (in the traditional turn-based sense) is still fairly popular. On the handhelds, there seems to be a few roguelikes released every year.
The only one I sort of got into was Legend of the Red Dragon 2, a BBS game from way back... but other than that, the genre didn't really grab me. I don't know why, because having everything be "slow paced" somewhat appeals to me. Maybe it's my obsession with narrative or something.
