I purchased the base Diablo II about a month ago. This was out of curiosity, and protest. I have friends who still play this game, and also it actually runs on my computer. I have a very high-powered laptop that I got last Christmas, but I can barely play most current games. I makes me furious that PC game developers focus mostly on graphics, and force gamers to drop thousands just to play the games released during the year. Couldn't we just make games more efficiently, and focus on gameplay and story? I remember when you could play most PC games on any regular PC, but those days are over. Richie Rich has taken over PC world. Anyway, Diablo II is a well-made hack-n-slash MMORPG. You can play the story mode alone, but I don't know why you would choose to do that. Play online, level up, get really powerful stuff, and complete more quests. I like how the difficulty increases with each player who joins into the game. Although it is rather annoying when n00bs pop in begging for free stuff. I am definitely a console person, but for those who can't run F.E.A.R. at the highest frame rate, give this one a try.
