So I am currently playing Tribes:Ascend and Path of Exile beta. I have played several characters to max level of the content and have gotten as much enjoyment out of the game as I can considering the characters will be wiped. So I was looking for something to give me a fix for a week or two waiting for Diablo 3 to release. (Say what you want about D3, but regardless of how good or bad it will be, I have ALOT of irl friends and family who will be playing D3... so that is the massive appeal to me.)
So, to get that temporary game fix, I decided I would dig out my old D1 and D2 cd's and give them a playthrough, just for kind of a blast from the past nostalgia type feel. And upon popping the Diablo 1 CD into my computer, I found it quite halarious what I saw on the setup menu.
Just goes to show how old Diablo 1 was in terms of the computer and internet age. I was 11 or 12 when I purchased Diablo 1. My dad stopped by a tire repair place to get a hole in his tire patched up after I had purchased the game. So I sat in the chair at the car shop with my Diablo 1 box in my hands just staring at the pictures. My next door neighbors had been playing Diablo 1 for a few weeks so I knew first hand how awesome it was. It was my first real Gamer's Computer Game. Before Diablo 1 all I had played is educational shit like "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego" and "Spell It 3". So that's what I mean by Gamer's game.
