Played right after the server gates opened (or at least some hours after that :P). I even have a picture of young Leo right here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ke42fsy98uxts46/diablo%20day%201.jpg
The game was released on a tuesday at 4AM(my time) if I recall correctly. I remember that I woke up at 3AM that day, turned on skype and waited nervously while chatting with my friends. Needless to say, me and my two buddies skipped work that day! :P
Might seem like a stupid story, but we had a good time that day. :)
Rock on Diablo! For another year! :)
True...i remember that. Unfortunately it was a sign of things to come. Good times (or not)!
