Diablo is the point and click RPG series developed by Blizzard that features the devil Diablo as its main villain. The second game in the series, Diablo II, was Blizzard's most popular game in America for many years (until the release of World of Warcraft) and would make a very interesting entrant into a Games Contest.
Diablo made it into the 2006 Series Contest, where there were high expectations for the series in the wake of Warcraft's surprising upset of Grand Theft Auto a week prior. Unfortunately Diablo was quickly swarmed under by the overwhelming popularity of Final Fantasy, which demolished the series in their first round matchup, scoring a bigger blowout that anyone had thought possible.
