I liked both D1 and D2 for different reasons, although I would have preferred a remake of D1 as well.

When I started playing Diablo 2 back in the day, the first thoughts that entered my mind were: 1. it looks blurry and 2. the items don't look as pretty and unique any more. I did like having more options in character selection, development, a bigger world, more streamlined gameplay and so on, but of course such things come at a cost. It's a curse of sequels to popular games that they are often expanded and streamlined so much in order to cater for a larger audience, that they become diluted or, out of necessity, shift their focus to something else.

Diablo 1 had more gravitas because it had a much narrower, simpler focus. Quality over quantity.
