On June 29, 2000, Diablo II hit store shelves. Let that sink in for just a bit... ten years! An entire decade ago, we first got our hands on the Barbarian, Necromancer, Sorceress, Amazon and Paladin on our way to invade Hell. The first Diablo was an amazing game, that's for sure. But the sequel kept the core gameplay that made the original so fun, and added in all manner of user-friendly features like the stash, and cranked the loot up to eleven with the addition of sockets. It all came together perfectly to make one of the best games of all time.
In the summer of 2000, I and many of my friends were in the heyday in our Everquest addiction. But when Diablo II hit, I actually stopped charm-kiting and froglok-camping long enough to play through it several times. We'd meet every night, looking for the best combinations of classes that would allow us to go ever deeper into the game. It was a glorious time, and one that I look back on fondly. I've gone back to the well of Diablo II goodness many times since then, and it holds its own compared to modern games every time. What are your favorite memories of Diablo II? Any cool co-op moments come to mind?
