There's Live-Action Diablo Footage...From Suburban America

Total RecallTotal RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.

This old Diablo II commercial, from around the time of the game's launch in June 2000, is notable for two things.

The first is that it's a rare example of official live-action Diablo.

The second is the use of the word Macintosh in the closing splash. For all the credit companies like Valve get these days for making Mac gaming a little more mainstream, for a very long time Blizzard was about the only major studio on Earth really waving the flag.


So much so that if you weren't really paying attention at the time, know that seeing "& Macintosh" in major commercials over a decade ago was weird.
