    Man, I don't know wtf about reading this gave me a nostalgia hit, but it brought to mind playing that old Infantry game.

    Probably the most overrated boring game ever released.



    People talk about Oblivion and to a lesser degree NWN/Kotor for causing the quality of the industry to decline but Diablo with it's mindless(and it really is the most mindless game of all time) gameplay caused much more damage.




    Not even going into all the terrible Diablo clones we've been graced with over the years( unfortunately I've played and even finished a few).

    Good gear was rare is an understatement, good luck fully decking out a character in the best gear on your own. Natural drop rates were so low you p much had to cheat, beg, or become a Jeff Bezos tier merchant to get it.

    One thing that puts diablo 3 well ahead of D2 is that you don't have to dedicate your life to the game to get top tier gear while still leaving plenty of room for autists to grind for hundreds of hours to get the top quality of any particular item.

    The only thing they can announce in conjunction with Diablo is that they're shutting down D3 servers to improve HotS matchmaking or some shit. The game has been all but abandoned by Blizz.

    Kill millions of identical enemies to pick up garbage


    sell garbage because only because of ocd because you never actually need money unless you want to gamble


    repeat as long as your sanity lasts





    Pretty much the experience of playing Diablo, how anyone with an iq higher then 85 enjoys such drivel is completely beyond me, so I'll just go on believing anyone who's a had of these types of games are moderately retarded.




    The most fun thing to do on diablo 2 was to hop in peoples cow levels on battle net and kill the king, which I found amusing when I was in my teens.

    I bet the release thread of the remastered Diablo 2 will reach 100 pages within a week, despite all the negativity in this thread.

    We'll need 7 playthrougs and 5 reviews to verify whether game works fine on resolutions higher than 800x600.

    You're talking about the golden age of the medium where practically everything was original. Genres were barely established at all, outside pulling off simple programming/rendering feats before anyone else.

    The 90s was just a funny period for game designers too. Depictions of sex/violence in games was becoming very taboo as tech got better - thus, anything with comedic levels of it like Doom or Diablo, was equal parts awesome/hilarious for everyone involved. Moreso when all angles of the media, for years, tried to equate them with "Satanic influence" or "war propaganda" etc.

    Classics were born from times like this.

    Diablo 1 and 2 aren't classics. 1 is average at best and 2 is shit. They're literally designed to be unfun and addictive to appeal to the socially non functioning OCD crowd.



    So shut the fuck up and stop trying to be a pseudo intellectual while quoting me, I just think you're an even bigger retard.

    Diablo 1 was always the best in the series. No other sequel or clone has managed to capture the magic it had.

    This is so fucking wrong there is a crater of wrong they have been digging for centuries and they still can't find your arse buried beneath

    I remember playing D2 in the early days, and finding the first Stone of Jordan - it was memorable, it felt fantastic, and it happened as a process of, as Thal described, organic play where you were always hunting for great gear but you were also actually playing the game and enjoying your character.

    Soon, SOJs were a basic unit for bartering great gear. That was still fine; finding SOJs and other uniques made you think about how you might use them for your future characters or how you might trade it to fill those very real gaps in your current gear. Getting my first Windforce took a series of exchanges and that was a cool part of the game as well, trading with real people your salvages. (Then like a moron I traded it for something shit, all part of the process.)

    Fast forward a while, and SOJs were devalued like a Zimbabwean currency, and over time you start to get more hacking, more RMTs, more gold farmers, more macro bots, more overinflated rare drops, etc, etc.

    I tried Diablo 3 a bit at release, and then very recently. D3 never had the truly satisfying moments of finding great gear, but over the years it's like they turned up the fucking loot algo up to the moon. Now, don't worry about MFs, or bosses, or anything - just run around pew pewing at random shit, and you'll get rares every 30 seconds and uniques every 5 minutes without hyperbole. Actually reading the gear description of all the shit you find is inefficient - you get better deal for your time if you instantly sell everything except ones with bigger numbers. Sold a good item by mistake? You'll get 20 more drops while you shit!

    That's online gaming in a nutshell. And I was only referring to the first, which I played once as a kid. Countless clones that emulate it religiously, obviously don't encourage many people to remember the period when it everything was new.

    Sure, because people would like to see a proper Diablo game again. Can't fault 'em for trying it out despite the lack of confidence in Blizzard.

    Meh. Who gives a shit? Diablo 1 and 2 still hold up as well as they ever have, and between 2000 and 2018 there's been some Diablo ripoffs which are actually viable alternatives. Long story short, play Titan Quest.
