Diablo II

Diablo II is a hack and slash RPG released in 2000. It is the second in the Diablo series and has a sequel planned. Additionally, It has an expansion, Lord of Destruction, that added a lot of new content and revamped the gameplay.

The basic premise is that hoards of demons have been let loose onto the world and you must go forth and hunt down their leaders to save the world from destruction. You do this using skills you build over time and weapons and armour with procedurally generated stats; and with one of the seven classes, the ranged weaponry wielding Amazon, the sneaky Assassin, the insidious necromancer, the tank Barbarian, the powerful Sorceress, the Druid protected by the power of nature, and the well armoured Paladin who is able to call on the power of white magic.

All of these features combine to be a very fun addicting game. And the best part is that it has free online multiplayer.

Awesome skills, procedurally generated weapons and armour, and free online play equals the most addictingly fun game ever created, bar none.
Without a lot of knowledge and experience any character you create will likely suck; In fact their are only a handful of good builds (not that you could not get though the game with a bunch of the less then perfect builds).
Diablo II might be a repetitive game but it is also pretty close to perfect at what it does, and that is pure hack and slash fun and addicting RPG levelling and treasure hunting.
