They have been called many things over the years. Isometric RPGs, hack'n'slash RPGs, ARPGs, Diablo clones. But one thing is certain: They wouldn't exist if Diablo didn't come out in 1996. Diablo and its sequels spawned a whole catalogue of isometric action RPGs.

Boosting a character got a lot easier in Diablo III since the introduction of Paragon levels and Seasons, and it always was quick playing as a level 1 character in an otherwise max level party of four. Still, reaching the non-Paragon level cap in 33 seconds is still pretty impressive.

Cosmetic items weren't really a part of Diablo III. Players could get a few pets and wings as rewards for spending money on a collectors' edition or on a Blizzcon ticket, and that was it. The upcoming patch 2.4.1 will change this by adding a ton of new cosmetic loot.

We take visual effects in games for granted, though that's kind of the point. It's like magic tricks — they lose their lustre once you know how they're done. That doesn't mean we don't want to know.

I thought I was done playing Diablo III, a game I happily zipped through as a demon hunter when it came out on PS4. I played with friends, cleared the story, hit level 70, barely understood what Adventure Mode and Paragon Points were and put it down. That was more than a year ago.

Diablo III changed a lot over the years. The expansion and the later patches added a lot more content to the game, and these changes might confuse players who stopped playing around Reaper of Souls or before, but want to come back to see what's new.

Diablo III's long awaited patch 2.4 is now live both in the US and in the EU. It's quite a big update with new zones, items, game mechanics and small tweaks. The game feels a lot different if you haven't played in months.

Adventures in Diablo III didn't end with patch 2.3. There's a new, similarly large content patch coming soon with enough new things packed in to make it worth going back and gain a few more Paragon levels. One of the most exciting things will be a feature called set dungeons.
