GhanBuriGhan didn't say the term "started" with Diablo, he said he remembers it being used. I also remember it being used as well along with "hack and Slash" and "point and click". Diablo was called a lot of things, action-RPG was just one of them.

Those of us who were actually playing RPGs prior to Diablo don't need to read reviews. We were there.
