The original Diablo. With an extended storyline and the ability of infinite dungeons and level ups. Considering the tiny size ofthe first game, I think they could accomplish a seemingly endless game with relative ease. Curious to see Diablo 3. But still believe 1 is the best.
Yes, I completely agree, 1 is the best. It's atmospheric music, and focus on horror creates a feeling that diablo 2 certainly lacked, and Diablo 3 definitely will not recreate (it's by the people who made WoW so, I doubt we will see such a focus on horror)
Fighting the butcher for the first time ever was terrifying. Also, despite there only being 3 armor changes based on the class of armor - all of them were exceptionally well designed - especially the warrior, every time i got a new tier of armor it made me feel more badass. I would love to see a remake in exactly the same way but with more - the original character classes, the original sounds, and animations to match. I would love to make a mod for a game to remake it, but sadly my understanding of coding is very slim at the moment.
Also, not a remake - but I'd like to see a sequel to Quake 1. That game was probably the most original of ID's games (besides Heretic/Hexen - which were Raven)
The environments were so cool in that game, from high-tech bases to medieval castles, to weird otherworldly "runic" designs with a lot of metalwork. Add the ambient style of music, and the lovecraftian monsters - it really made an eerie experience. A sequel could be amazing.
I was disappointed how Quake 2 went back to all base/installation as its environment - it felt like a combo between Quake and Doom, but more like the latter - the Weapons were almost the same, and the enemies weren't even as good as Quake or Doom. Shame ID continued the Q2 part of the series instead of the original.
