    For those who has played both games, which game is better? BG2 sure has nicer graphics.

    I prefer Diablo2 because it is a little more open for going where you want. There seems to be a more linear requirement for BG2, but that's just my opinion.

    I have both games.

    Personally I play D2 a lot more than BG2. BG2 has a longer storyline, and perhaps more.. in depth.. playing (as opposed to hack-hack-slash-zap). BG2's internet play is horrid, to say the least, whereas D2 is hosted on a series of servers that 'generally' give a great playing experience.

    But, I think D2 is much more interesting because of its high amount of replayability, and the items you can get range far and wide. Currently, my BG2 CD(s) is collecting dust.. Chalk it up to another short lived purchase. If you were to ask which were better: Ultima Series or BG2, I would say Ultima Series.

    As an afterthought:

    Internet playability will make or break a game these days. I USED to play most of my games on single player.. in 1994! Now, we have DSL, Cable, the wonders of a hosted service and a powerful computer. Come to think of it.. I dont play many of my games single unless it's the first time I'm playing the game.. or my connection is down

    Human interaction is king now.

    Even though they are both classified as RPGs, they are almost two different games...

    Personally: I loved BG1 and Diablo 1... played em both to death...

    Got BG2.. played it... lost interest halfway through...

    Got D2.. played it.. played it some more.. got the expansion, played it more still... still playing it..

    To me, BG2 was just more of the same from the first one.. Didn't have that draw to keep me playing... Diablo 2 was vastly improved.. and it's one of the best games I feel that you can keep playing, cos it's always different.. you can always improve you char, get better items, etc..

    Which one do you think has better looking graphics? From what I can tell BG2 looks far more impressive. I'm easily pleased with pretty graphics even though gameplay is only so so.

    Ive still gotta get thru BG1 before I start on BG2 :(

    Anyway, if BG2's story is anything like BG2, then ill go with BG2 over Diablo 2.

    Not to say Diablo 2 is crap. It just, uh, has its moments. Didnt really intrest me at all. Maybe because it has nothing in the way of AD&D and 'proper' RPG elements.

    I totally agree..... I still play Wolfenstein 3D and the Doom series quite a bit..... very addictive gameplay despite the dodgy graphics
