The haunting sounds of Diablo in Diablo I

I always knew that diablo is a game with a diabolical message. Still, it was really effectively scary and dark. Diablo 1 had the scary and mysterious elements of horror movies. Not too revealing, and leaves you puzzled and scared.

The cinematics reflect that, too. A holy church burning with fire? Upside-down crucifixes and bloody people on stakes? This is Diablo 1 and 2. As scary as Silent Hill 1 and 2!

Fast forward to Diablo 3: Villains talking too much, trying hard to convince you that they are strong and scary. Skeleton voices that sound exactly like the Goblin. Music that's ok, but reminds you more of The Lord of the Rings and World of Warcraft -- I still prefer Matt Uelmen's musical craft!!!!

I was listening to boss voices and music from the diablo series and came across what Diablo says at Lvl 16 in Diablo I. I had a good laugh from it! I thought you guys might like it as well.
