General: Wayback Wednesday - Diablo 2

In our latest edition of Wayback Wednesday, we take a look at venerable Blizzard powerhouse Diablo II. Take a walk down memory lane and see if you remember the good old days!

Last week on Wayback Wednesday we strayed from the norm and played a game that most would not consider a true MMO. I did refer to it, however, as a MiniMO, because of the online and LAN based multiplayer. With the hype surrounding the current smash hit Diablo 3 I decided to go back and show where the roots of this game developed. Let’s take a look at Diablo 2.

    Great fun game! I fear the anti-mmo mob will soon start crushing this article though...

    Amazing game.. I left it once and for all, though, after the hacking and exploits really started to take over.. Went to EverQuest and never looked back.  I'm playing D3 now, and it seems good, but not as immersive as D2.  Then again, I was about 11 when I played D2, and it scared the bajeezus out of me.

    Yeah, maybe it's because I'm older, but Diablo 3 just doesn't scare me at all.  I can remember several times in Diablo 2 when I ran around a corner and a mob was there and it scared the crud out of me.  A couple of times I screamed lol.  I thinke Diablo 3 should've had a closer up camera like diablo 2 had.

    Agreed. Such a great model to build from and they jacked it all up.
