Fallout 2 vs Diablo 2

If you think that the GameSpy poll was stupid, wait till you see this article. Some guy actually tries to compare Fallout 2 to Diablo 2 apple-to-apple style.

Fallout II is set in a future after a nuclear war has devastated the world. You start the game in a "tribal" village, composed mainly of tents and people with spears. You are sent on a quest to recover a GECK (Garden of Eden Creation Kit) which will save your village and create a, well, Garden of Eden to live in. You set off, kill a bunch of stuff, get a lot of levels, plunder a bunch of cool stuff, kill off the bad guys and win the game.

Otherwise, the side quests are pretty impressive. Yeah, you get the "help Torr defend the cows" ones, but you get the "Find the missing watch" quests which involve dynamiting an outhouse. Fallout II actually has characters, too. Yeah, I know that Alkor is a wannabe necro, and Charsi has a thing for barbarians, but they don't really compare to, say, Sulik who talks to the bone in his nose, or Fergus, who had deluded himself into believing that he runs a nuclear power plant single handedly.

Wow!
