Diablo 1 is a conceptually cleaner game. In terms of terrifying ambience, diablo 2 can't hold a candle to diablo 1. The music alone is reason enough to call it the superior game. This is what I'm talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrK90XJfqRs
Haven't played final fantasy games since they left the SNES. Western RPGs > J"RPG"s.
Starcraft 1 and 2 are awesome though. Though Starcraft 1 is better, because the units don't look like cartoons.
Diablo 1 > Diablo 2
