    For new players, my recommendation would be to try the base game un-modded for one playthrough and then move on to some of the modernised versions. Why? Because no game is worth doing physical harm to yourself. The original Diablo is a click-fest without equal and can fuck up your wrist if you're not careful.

    Can these be modded or are you stuck with vanilla flavored diablo and crew?

    I cannot remember, what is happening when my character dies in Diablo1?
    I have to load a saved game?
    Or respawned in town then I can go back for the lost items?
    :i am confused:

    This one, unless you got mods that do it differently.

    Gotta say that I hated Diablo back when I played it on Playstation almost 20 years ago; I found it mind numbing and grindy as hell
    But today on a whim I installed the GOG version and I rather enjoyed it fpr what it is... mindless clicking and looting is almost soothing
    Do the Hi Res packs work with the GOG version too?

    Diablo is not an RPG and so this belongs in the other general gaming thread. :troll:

    I'm not a fan of the Blizzard classics ported to PlayStation 1.

    When I checked Warcraft II in the console, years ago - and I had already played it in a computer, so I ended up comparing both - I was horrified by the abysmal MS-DOS port!
    It was so crappy, I didn't even play any human mission, in the campaign.
    I was glad to remove the save file, from the memory card, afterwards.

    It's true that Diablo for the PlayStation 1 has local co-op (unlike the original), but I'd rather play in the computer.
    You can't play Hellfire, or mod the game, in the console.
