    Is Diablo worth it?

    After getting rather tired of WoW I've been looking for some other games to play, out of all of them I think the Diablo franchise looks the best (and I don't want to argue this so don't bother suggesting better titles because I won't care).

    I've done some looking around and I noticed the battle chest which contains Diablo, Diablo 2 and its expansion going for about $60. My other option is to start a Refer a Friend account and insta-level characters to 60 for three months and get the Touring Rocket too.

    So my question to you is if the battle chest is worth the money nowadays.

    Diablo 2 is a great game. Everyone should have it.

    Depends, really.

    I personally wouldn't play it anymore since most my friends who played it quit =\

    And it has TONS of Bots these days.


    But it IS a great game.

    But there is a single player mode right? (I'm playing for the story mostly so I can get the full experience from Diablo 3)

    Uh... the story is the only thing that made me play Diablo II, because hack-and-slash games usually bores me.

    I would look around, $60 for the battle chest is too pricey. I have seen the Warcraft III, StarCraft, and WoW battlechests go for $29.99 at places like Fry's or Best Buy

    Depends, Diablo 2 gets really mundane after you beat in on Hell, after that it's just experience grinding and trying to pick up gear that drops in pug's before other people grab it. But some people love that and still play it today, it's a matter of taste.

    Fuck the multiplayer, do the singler player. BUY THAT FUCKING CHEST!!!
    It really is a great series, but get used to potion spam.

    Well I got the chest and it's pretty fun (When I think about it I have no idea why, I mean all I'm doing is hitting skeletons with a mace).

    I rolled a Paladin and have so far spent all my points in Smite, it's pretty fun just spamming one ability and killing something that would have two shot me.

    I really like the mood in Diablo 1. The music and the atmosphere is great. It's the first game that actually got me scared from playing late at night. Diablo II had some more variation in the environment and better gameplay, but not as creepy atmosphere as the first game.

    Get Torchlight. It's WAY better in my opinion. Plus you can mod it. They already got some really awesome mods for it. No multiplayer unfortunately...

    Torchlight got crappy story though. It's just hack'n'slash without motivation.

    I am a big fan of Diablo. In my opinion, it was one of the best games ever created. With the official release date is scheduled for December 31 August 2010 for which there was no advertising for it? I fear that Diablo 3 will be a pushover game that the third week in. I have seen no advertising and nothing new about the game have been released. What are you opinions?
