Which is the 'best' version of the game to get?

Version differences

What are the differences between each edition of the game?

Demo/free trial

Name the header either Demo, Free trial, or name of the edition, e.g. ===Starter Edition===
If a demo exists, break down the limitations.
Do progress/achievements carry over to the main game?

Patches

Include If

There is a benefit in using an older patch. For example, Diablo II's latest patch is 1.13, but the high-res mod only supports 1.12.
There is a community or fan patch which is superior to the latest developer patch.
