Worth getting Diablo 1 or just skip it?

The title about sums it up :)

Always been at the back of my mind to get into Diablo, but I see the first game is 25 used everywhere. Will I be missing that much if I just start at Diablo 2 (which is much more affordable)?

You probably won't be missing much, no.

I think Diablo 1 is a better game than Diablo 2, though, and have always had a lot more fun with it.

It's worth playing through at least once IMO. The atmosphere is very different from the others, almost survival horror-esque.

I believe the max resolution for Diablo 1 is something like 800x600, it's pixelated as hell and I'm not even sure it works on Windows 7. Other than that, you should play it.

You will be missing out on a really fun game if you don't play it. It's slow moving mostly because you don't run you walk but the game in general is a blast and I would highly suggest finding a copy and giving it a run. But no you don't need to play it to catch up with story or anything you can just google it. Also going back and running into some of the bosses that are going to be in D3 is fun, I had forgotten about King Leoric in D1 until I ran into his chambers.

800x600 was added to Diablo2's expansion.
D1 is still 640x480.

It's the fact it costs almost as much as the game about to come out, plus the seeming hit and miss nature of playing it on W7 64bit.

Ok, a re-phrase, if I play 2 will I have spoiled the story if I later get 1?

Sex panther : 60% of the time, it works every time.

Very simple story, and yes D2 would completely spoil it.
