Still Going Strong
Diablo II should be in the Action-RPG hall of fame. Since it's release, it's popularity has never really ended. It's one of the finest in the genre, challenged only by its own developers who have since moved on to create the likes of Guild Wars, Hellgate: London, and Torchlight. Diablo is a title that spawned the name, "Diablo-clone", since it came out and many games tried to copy it, such as Dungeon Siege and Titan Quest. The tireless pursuit of power and loot is a compelling mechanic that has kept players playing. The levels and monster selection are all randomly generated, a trait from early dungeon crawlers like Nethack and Rogue. So no matter how many times you play, you'll never be able to memorize a route. Even if you somehow tire of the original game, the modding community has kept the game alive with mods and complete total conversions with new characters, skills, graphics, and treasure. The sequel is in development and set to be released soon. Pick up Diablo II and get a jump on the mythology. The developer, Blizzard, has a sterling track record for making the best in the industry. They've earned their reputation time and again, and Diablo II is one of their finest examples.
