Diablo

A classic game! One of the first I was addicted to

Diablo, made by Blizzard, was the first role playing game that I became fully addicted to.  The character creation (beginning with 5 classes) and level of gameplay was entirely fun and interesting enough to keep me coming back.  My favorite character was the Amazon, then the Warrior.  My favorite parts of the game were finding treasure, learning new spells and completing quests.  Gameplay differed slightly for each class/character type.  You'll find in Blizzard's more recent games references to the original Diablo.  I will always have fond memories...

Hi Talulah, nice review! This kind of reminds me of the Lara Croft Tomb Raider game (pre-Angelina Jolie). I used to love the different levels, the quests, and the puzzles. Have you ever tried the Wii games? @HealthyRache wrote a cool review on Wii fit and I've been meaning to try it out.

   I'm by no means a person that defines them-self as a "gamer", my favorite games are Super Mario 3, 64, Land and World; but this game is great. It is so in depth and addictive. It's one of those games where you actually start to feel like you are your own character, and of course get as much gold and treasures as you can ;) The only other PC games I think I spent as much time on were the GOOD Warcraft games, and the X-wing vs. Tie Fighter games. This is one of those …

About this video game

Wiki

Diablo is a fantasy role-playing game that captures the spirit of original face-to-face games like Dungeons and Dragons. With a straightforward story line based on fulfilling quests assigned by nonplayer characters, you equip yourself, venture into a dungeon, and slaughter legions of hideous foes. Along the way, you unearth magical treasure, discover mighty spells, and earn experience that can be used to increase your combat abilities. Almost all of your time with Diablo is spent underground, exploring and conquering ever-deeper levels of the gloomy dungeon. Combat is fast, brutal, and constant. Whether your weapon of choice is a sword, axe, bow, or spell, all forms of combat employ a simple two-click system, which is elegant without being simplistic. Replayability and customizability are Diablo 's strong points; the incredible number of options and possibilities--and the fun that can be had experimenting with different strategies--keeps players coming back for more.
