The Diablo series is one of the most revered in PC gaming. Taking influence from games like Nethack, they interpreted the complex mechanics of the rogue-like genre in a way that your average person could handle. It spawned an entire subgenre of action-oriented RPGs, and it's still going strong with new releases such as Torchlight. However, Blizzard is working on the third game in the Diablo franchise, and while it's not being done by the original developers, there is still a lot of talk about it. The real question is whether or not Blizzard can live up to Blizzard North's vision of the franchise. There's a legacy here, after all.
