I loved Diablo. I still get a kick out of a run through Diablo 2. I didn't buy Diablo 3. Never played it. Probably never will.

In their quest to eradicate piracy they have lost a customer.

While we're on the topic, pity about the latest SIMS; for similar reasons.

Meanwhile, Torchlight looks like fun. Thanks to HumbleBundle it's next on my list when I feel like a new RPG :-)

Same here. Diablo 2 was my favourite game.

Torchlight 2 is a better casual ARGP, and Path of Exile is a better hardcore one. No room for Diablo 3.

Sim City, at least, has an offline mode now. Too bad they didn't start with it, they could have avoided a lot of bad press and flames.

Diablo 3's DRM wasn't about piracy, it was about creating a market for the real money auction house. The auction house that, ironically, they removed later on for ruining the game.

Not a huge amount of game content (Score: 2, Interesting)

I played D3 until I beat the boss. Then I discovered the next round up was the same round around, with different numbers. I'll stick with WoW for the time being.
