Eye candy: 15 years of Diablo

Do you still remember the thrill of playing Diablo for the first time?

Of wondering whether your mouse would give out from all the frenzied clicking? Whether Deckard Cain was voiced by Sean Connery without his teeth in? Or just wanting beat Wirt to death with his own damn peg leg?

If so, Blizzard’s new video celebrating 15 years of everyone’s favourite wrist-breaking dungeon crawler will be exactly the nostalgia jolt you crave.

If not, it’s still an interesting recap of Diablos I, II and Lord of Destruction, and a brief look forward to the still-not-quite-out-goddamit Diablo III.

Blizzard also has a lot of other behind-the-scenes material up on its site, including an interview with Diablo co-creator Chris Metzen and an interactive timeline.
