A good college friend introduced me to the game and I was instantly hooked. Having no PC of my own I spent as much time occupying my friend’s computer as I could. It never seemed enough.
It was an incredible game, totally addictive and scary, but immensely fun. It was also the first game that made me actively want to pursue video games as a career.
Diablo was the reason I changed my major from Chemistry to Computer Science and it was a huge determining factor in where I eventually applied for jobs.
I can’t even imagine how different my life would have been had I not played Diablo or had I not loved it as much as I did.
