Videogame Virgin: Diablo and Whack-A-Mole

(Editor’s note: In this bi-weekly feature, Pixelitis staffer Matt Brown shares his “down the rabbit hole” look into gaming history. Having admittedly missed what many consider “classics,” join him as he dives in head first. We ask that you just be gentle with him.)

"I’m a big fan of carnival games. My father worked at a state fair when he was in high school and I guess I am my father’s son. I love tossing rings and swinging hammers and more than anything, I love whacking moles. The thing is, I couldn’t stop thinking about that while I was checking out Diablo for this post." (Activision Blizzard Inc., Blizzard, Culture, Diablo, PC, Retro)
