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.

We got a PS4! Right before PS5 came out. Lots of games available on the cheap. We really like Diablo 3, such as it is. Sadly, the box says it comes with the expansion but the game didn't. It's a pity as it looks good. The PS4 has never connected to the internet so I may never play it.

It's a real shame that the PS4 won't backup to an external drive. Looks like it wants internet access first.

Perhaps this was for the best. Game comes out, people finish it, cheaters wreck it, expansion packs get added, and then maybe it's on sale for cheap and playable :)

Heh, I had actually pre-ordered Diablo 4 a good while back. But now that the game is finally out, I can't seem to bring myself to play it. If I want to play a game I just start another play-through of Oxygen Not Included.

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.
