I haven't touched an RPG since, the whole thing fad ...

Is Blizzard Racist? Diablo 3

My Love For Diablo 3 I grew up with the Diablo franchise (Diablo 3, YES!). The initial Diablo was one of the first- if not the first- games I ever played. At 10 years old, with my dad directing over my shoulder, I fought my way through the labyrinthine underground levels of Tristram's cathedral and eventually defeated Diablo himself. Dad and I sat and strategized whenever I got stuck; we'd switch characters ...
