Actually, right now I'm playing "Etrian Odyssey II" on my Nintendo DS (about once or twice a week in practice). It's exactly like all the old-school adventure games like Bard's Tale, Ultima, even Nethack - endless mazes with random-generated enemies, turn-based battles, convoluted go-and-fetch quests, sometimes impossible enemies, constant leveling, stats and abilities galore.
