Top 25 RPG Countdown, #18: Diablo II
After taking its first, hesitant steps in the 1970s, RPGs truly began to find their footing in the 1980s. We explain why as Jeremy Parish joins us to continue his exploration of RPG history on Axe of the Blood God.
This week we focus on Wizardry, which was the subject of his second History of RPGs feature, and Bard’s Tale. Both had a significant role to play in the evolution of the genre, and we strive to put them into context as we continue our journey through RPG history.
Also in this episode: David Craddock returns to talk about #18 in our Top 25 RPG Countdown: Diablo 2! Find out why this seminal dungeon crawler is still a beloved favorite today.
