I rarely play pc games, but I did pick up Diablo II, and LOVED it.

Just wondering if any of you have any suggestions of any good games that are of similar nature.

I do not like the "first-person" type games where the game is viewed through "your" eyes.

TY!

If you like the adventure elements of Diablo or Diablo 2, then maybe you should try Monkey Island 4.

Give Darkstone a shot. It's basicly a Diablo clone with 3D graphics, same gameplay and camera angle though.

One cool thing is that you can get 2 characters to use at once. It's maybe a year old so you can grab it at bargin bin prices.

Try Diablo, it was much more fun than DiabloII which was a majorly bad game when it came out so I stopped playing. You should try Baldur's Gate 2 and Rage of Mage, they sorta look like Diablo and are quite fun.

I would agree pick up a copy of the first game diablo. you can find it cheap and it is good. i thought diablo 2 was very good also. Baldurs gate 1 and 2 are very good , but they are different styles of game play. you may not like them. Pick up baldurs gate 1 or see if you can get the demo to try it out. I would say that warcraft is a lot of fun but again a different style of play than diablo.

I don't play games, but my son does. The game he liked best before getting into Diablo II was Starcraft.

If you liked Diablo 2, get Nox!
