  1. Ah hell yes! I had just graduated college when this game came out and played it with my friends while we were all unemployed and having trouble looking for jobs as newly grads. A business degree in 2000 was equivalent to me frying chicken nuggets at McDonalds. Why couldn’t I major in Diablo instead?

    I finished both the original game and the expansion with the Druid and Necromancer and still haven’t touched any of the other classes. Maybe one of these days I’ll pick it up again since I still have my original Diablo 2 discs I got when they came out.

    I swear Damian looks like Other Joe.

  2. One of the greatest games of all time, it really defined the action RPG genre more than any other game.

  3. Any class is actually viable if you build them right.

    One of my biggest complaints on Diablo 3 is that your build is pretty much identical to anyone else of the same class, all that matters is gear.

    • Agreed. 3 felt too much like it was geared towards beginners with a new shiny coat of paint. 1 did a good job having the 3 classes play differently and 2 improved on that with even more classes.

      The replay value of the first 2 Diablo games was their strongest point as it felt like a different game with every class. 3 was more geared towards click mashers and I’ve only beaten it once with the Demon Hunter.

      Don’t get me started on 3’s “Expansion” that only lasted a day of play time. I wasted $40 on that crap when it came out.
