Diablo 2 was my first co-op dungeon crawler/hack and slash so the game itself is something to remember. But even more memorable is that I still think of Tristram Village!

For the hardcore fans, you might recognize the song from the original Diablo, which is why I listed the song as being released in 1996. However the song is also in Diablo 2 and that’s where I first heard it, so that is why I titled this with Diablo 2 instead. There are many songs in this game which are noteworthy but this one in particular grabbed my attention. It’s such a great song because it gets fast paced and turns dark, you feel the song battle it self going back and forth between good and evil. That’s what I really enjoyed about this song, the passion behind it.

Now before I move on, who remembers the secret cow level? Kudos to those who do!
Enjoy this!
