Does Blizzard allow people to buy and download the first diablo game online? Or do I need to purchase a physical copy?

Welcome to arqade! This could have been a comment on the answer above, to ask him to fix it - but you don't have rep for it yet. +1 for the correction ;) –  Alok Aug 17 '12 at 17:25
    
Only the original release of the Diablo Battle Chest comes with the original Diablo. The newer version, which is easier to find, only comes with D2, LoD, and a strategy guide. –  OedipusPrime Aug 17 '12 at 17:47
    
Correction to the - "The Diablo 2 Battle Chest comes with Diablo 1 game." The picture shows that it does before u click the page on the store. However once u click it it shows the diablo 2 battle chest w/o diablo 1 –  user46840 Apr 12 '13 at 19:51

No, you cannot purchase the original Diablo game, in digital or physical form, from Blizzard's online store. The game still appears to be available on Amazon for either the PC or PlayStation.

If not, you can try searching for other releases or bundle. In 1998 there was a re-release bundle called Diablo + Hellfire. Blizzard also released a Game of the Year Collection in 1998 that contains the original Diablo. The Blizzard Anthology, released in 2000, also contains the original Diablo game. The Diablo Gift Pack contained the first two Diablo games but no expansions. In 2001, a Diablo: Battle Chest was available which contained the original Diablo, Diablo II, and the Lord of Destruction expansion.

Diablo II, however, is still available from Blizzard's online store. The original Diablo II game, Lord of Destruction expansion, and the Diablo II Battle Chest (which includes the Diablo II, its expansion, and strategy guides for each) are all there. However, the Battle Chest for Diablo II does not include the original Diablo game, but Diablo II and its expansion are available for digital download.

I updated the question to specify the first diablo game, since that is what the tag was. Would you be able to update your answer? –  Rachel May 23 '12 at 14:38
