When I first played Diablo I was around 12 years old. Unlike the majority of kids, I was very mature. I always ended up playing the most darkest and bloody games. Diablo was one of those games. The thing I loved about Diablo then the other universes (Warcraft & Starcraft) was that Diablo was Gothic. It really had a unique vibe towards it. I mean sure there were other games that created the CRPG genre like for an example Baldur's Gate. But Diablo was really different because it was a Dark Fantasy RPG. In Diablo, I honestly loved all the three classes. The dark environment was the true excellence of the game and the anti hero concision was both shocking and fascinating.
When Diablo 2 came out, I really didn't get the chance to pick up and play the game. Around 2004 is when I found out that Diablo had a 2nd part to it. When I played Diablo 2 I still felt the Darkness from the previous game, but there in some parts it was very bright (Act 2). However the thing that was the most intriguing in Diablo 2 was that your hero in this game was pretty much hunting down your old one. Besides that there were three different aspects of the classes in Diablo 2. Heroic Classes, such as the Sorceress and the Paladin. Neutral classes, such as the Barbarian, Druid and Amazon. Then the Dark and Mysterious classes such as the Assassin and the Necromancer.
Since I was a huge fan of the Gothic feeling that Diablo provided I wanted to choose a class that would make the game more darker and mysterious. I decided to go with the Necromancer. I loved the fact that the class was complete anti hero. It was a class that used dark magic and undead minions to destroy demons. Many times whenever you would socialize with the characters in the game, you would be shunned down because you wield the same power as the demons did. "Oh its a necromancer dammit" or "I don't agree on how you use dark magic to destroy demons". That anti hero feeling for me made the game fun for me.
Now after 7 years of waiting for so long, Diablo 3 was announced in 2008. When I first saw the game play video I was really happy that they brought back the barbarian. However when I saw that they pretty much replaced the necromancer with the witch doctor I was sadden and pretty much believed that there wouldn't be a Anti Hero class in this game. However I was wrong because when the last class was announced I knew it would be a range class but I never thought that it would have a anti hero vibe. When I saw the fact that the demon hunter uses preparation and discipline to destroy demons it was interesting and nice, but the most important thing that made me pick the demon hunter was the fact that you shadow magic and use demon weapons against demons also not to forget the fact that the demon hunter has an egoistical obsession with slaying demons. This is the reason why I am picking the demon hunter.
