Best Games to Play

Diablo is an action, role-playing game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. With the launch of Diablo III, it has brought the game to the PS4 and Xbox One platforms. If you simply love this game, then you need to check out this list provided by Buzzle, of other similar games like Diablo.

Do you love battle? Do you enjoy brainteasing strategy games? Then you have definitely heard of Diablo. Age of Empires may have started the trend of role-playing games, but Diablo reinvented it.

Set in the fictional kingdom of Khanduras, the player fights a lone battle against Diablo, the Lord of Terror that rests underneath the catacombs of Tristram. Filled with monsters and the undead, the player journeys through the dungeons underneath the Cathedral to fight Diablo himself, in this epic battle that changed the future forever. Though he succeeds by trapping Diablo in a soulstone and implanting it in his head, evil never rests. The game spawned 2 more sequels, namely, Diablo II, that continues the story of our hero, and Diablo III, which gives a satisfying conclusion to this epic saga.
