Kurtis beat me to the punch, but here’s my take.
Some games you quickly play through and get tired of. The Diablo series has not been one of those games. Diablo was one of the first RPGs I played on the PC. Diablo II saw many, many, many hours spent playing with friends on Battle.net, probably more than Starcraft and Warcraft combined.
Blizzard just announced Diablo III, go watch the gameplay video and start drooling.
Came across this fun little game that combines geographic knowledge and a little speed:
How Well Do You Know Your World
It’s pretty random so you can play through a few times and still get fresh locations. On my third try through I got to level 10 of 12 with a score of 390,828. How well do you know your world?
GameSpy has their annual awards up for PC games and being that I pretty much exclusively play PC games I found it pretty interesting. It also gave me a few ideas of games to pick up next year on the cheap. I’ve played 1,2,5,6 and will definitely try 3 and 4. Company of Heroes is awesome, best strategy game since Starcraft, just hope they get the online stuff running smoother. Here’s their top 10:
1. Company of Heroes
2. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
3. Half-Life 2: Episode One
4. Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators
5. Neverwinter Nights 2
6. Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords
7. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War — Dark Crusade
8. Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
9. GTR 2
10. LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
