NetHack in the comics at User Friendly:
Ten bucks buys you an awful lot of dungeon-hacking -- it sure ain't NetHack but it ain't bad.
Nethack is one of my all-time favorite games, one I've been playing since 1200 baud was smokin' fast.
-- Actor Wil Wheaton, http://www.wilwheaton.net
In short, NetHack 3.1.3 is the most elaborate role-playing environment you are ever likely to explore. This is a place to return again and again, each time for a different experience. You're really going to have to play it for a year or two and see for yourself.
