Ya i like diablo to, but i have still to find a good game that has more of the good qualities of the diablo series than the bad qualities of the cookie cutter society. I'll alert the press when i do : )

nope, nope, and nope. havent played neverwinter nights friends said it was boring, baldurs gate is way more complex than the simple hack and slash diablo, and bards tale is more like fable...which is not like diablo...

I dont know, I thought Neverwinter was pretty damned fun. I dont recall doing much other than going around killing stuff, lol. It did have a story plot but I dont think it forced you to follow it directly like an fps game plot. I know the multiplayer was pretty much just hack and smash, lol.

I've heard Neverwinter Nights is a great game. I'll buy it when I upgrade. Its too bad Intel thinks hardware T&L is garbage.

yes the one with an asus mobo and non exsistant apg slot. It was free so dont yell at me LOL.

Yes, there is more substance and character development in Neverwinter Nights than Diablo2... but if you want a Diablo 2 hack and slash clone using nice 3D graphics, do try Dungeon Siege... DS2 just came out, so the origional game must be cheap now...

ds2 is a little too simple in the controls of the character... it is easier to learn than D2, but harder to master.... it is, however, a very good game. Now if i could just figure out why am i getting these damned unable to connect messages.......

And if your system is not up for Dungeon Siege, give Darkstone a try... I had a lot of fun with that game when it came out... I got that when I was waiting for Diable 2 and Icewind Dale to come out... it must be selling for $2.00 on ebay... it, too, was a Diablo clone...

I agree I have baldurs gate, and stopped playing cause of the non-simple hack and slash you mentioned.

Mate, 3 words: Throne of Darkness. Its a Diablo 2 style game [core programmer was the same dood apparently].

You control a bunch of Japanese Samurai and you fight all kinds of monsters including humans etc.

Its cheap too, should only be $10 or so in the US.

If you liked Diablo and Diablo 2 I would try Sacred. Most places you can get Sacred for about $20.00 and now they have an expansion, Sacred Underworld for I think around $30.00. Very much like Diablo 2 and lots of sidequests in addition to the main quest. There are also varying levels of difficulty you can try. I've been playing about a year now and really enjoy it. There is also online play if you feel the need, but singleplayer is challenging and fun.

Two Action RPGs like Diablo 2 are Sacred, and Dungeon Siege or Dungeon Siege II

I have a strange feeling the OP is not going to respond to a post...3 years and 9 months later. (Just jokin.)

The guy with the post from earlier 2006 was right on the money though. I picked up TQ: Gold for $10 on steam a few months ago. In some ways though I thought it was actually better than D2.

surprised nobody has mentioned DOTA...

Fate, but you have to pay for it. It's pretty good though, better than Diablo in a bunch of ways but also not as good in some others. If you have the money, it's worth it. It's a lot of killing, but it doesn't have much of a plot, if you like that. Which I am definitely okay without, but that's me.
Also, Diablo III is coming out at some point soon-ish, but it's got really good graphics so it's not exactly for old or crappy computers. I think this Diablo actually uses a graphics driver this time, so you have to have a pretty good one, and it uses a bunch of RAM so you need a lot of that also.

I've been looking for a diablo like games ever since i played diablo 1. here is my list.

Diablo 1 & 2 along with expansions
Nox
Space Hack (Same as diablo except in space, not that fun)
Titan Quest (Same fun as diablo)
Sacred
Dungeon Siege
Torchlight (Same as diablo, and it's great)
Fate 1 & 2 (Same as diablo but no blood, feels childish game)
Fallout : Brotherhood of steel ( Playstation 2 )
Baldur's Gate 2 : Dark Alliance ( Playstation 2 )
November 11, 2009 7:42:21 AM

No, no and no! Diablo is inimitable game. Nothing can be like Diablo. It can be Diablo only, so lets wait for Diablo 3.

Let me re-quote that last statement ...
"all of these games are made by blizzard."

Seriously? :na: 

Please don't "assume" that a particular company made a particular game simply because it shares similarities.

Blizzard Entertainment hasn't developed, produced, or released a game outside the worlds of Warcraft, Diablo, or StarCraft since 1995.

Baldur's Gate and Champions of Norrath were both developed by "Snowblind Studios" ... the same company that was behind EverQuest.

Just so there's no confusion ...

Blizzard Entertainment was founded by three guys in college at UCLA in 1991. Originally they were known as Silicon & Synapse until they decided to change to the name Blizzard Entertainment in 1994.
Since it's initial founding, they have operated as a child company under much larger parent companies, who inevitibly own the rights to Blizzard Entertainment ... currently, they are owned by Vivendi within the Vivendi Games branch/group.

The Diablo series were developed by Blizzard North (who originally existed as Condor Games prior to Blizzard's purchase of them). Blizzard North was a separate branch of Blizzard Entertainment located is a different area of California. In 2005 However, Blizzard North was dissolved by Vivendi due to poor performance and expectations. Key members of the team went separate ways and became Flagship Studios (8 of the original members) and Castaway Entertainment (9 of the original members).

Flagship Studios went on to create Hellgate: London and Mythos (which I personally really enjoyed) ... but because of the large failure of Hellgate: London, they went Bankrupt.

After that, members of Flagship went on to form another company ... Runic Games ... known for the game Torchlight. The development of Torchlight is led by Travis Baldree, designer of Fate, and Max Schaefer and Erich Schaefer, co-designers of Diablo and Diablo II, joined by the team that developed Mythos. Not to mention Matt Uelmen who was the music composer for both Diablo and Diablo II.


Phew ... so there's the history lesson for today. ;) 

I'll conclude this with the following ... a complete list of games released since the founding of Blizzard Entertainment (beginning when they were known as Silicon & Synapse) ...

1991 ... RPM Racing
1992 ... Battle Chess (Windows and Commodore 64 ports)
1992 ... Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess (Amiga port)
1992 ... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vol. I (Amiga port)
1992 ... Castles (Amiga port)
1992 ... MicroLeague Baseball (Amiga port)
1992 ... Lexie-Cross (Macintosh port)
1992 ... Dvorak on Typing (Macintosh port)
