Blizzard didn't fail, you just don't like what they did.
Two different things.
I played Diablo II the day after it was released (mail was slow). Plus I couldn't play it at first because there were issues that needed to be fixed, even to play offline.
I could see how broken the Skill Point system was in a couple of days, but in spite of that it was still a blast to play. It was different that Diablo I, but the actual game play itself was pretty close to the same, and it was a lot bigger and had a better story. I played it for a long time and even long after I was done I would still pick it up every now and then to level up a new character just for fun.
Lord of Destruction didn't fix anything that was wrong with it, just added more content. It took them months if not years of patching to really polish Dialbo II. But despite it's flaws I still would pop the disc into my computer at least once a year and play it for a week or two.
Diablo III has changed a few things. It's better out of the box than Diablo II was. That's not to say it's perfect, the game does have some issues; but it's a decent game and a decent addition to the Diablo franchise. They will continue to patch and polish the game long after the majority of people have stopped playing it.
Much like it's predecessor I will play it for a long time to come, and even once I'm done I will occasionally pull it up just to run through it one more time.
That's probably the most reasonable post I've seen on here so far, though I will disagree with you on D3 being more polished out of the box than D2.
With that said, people need to calm down. While the game doesn't measure up to D2, it's still enjoyable, and with further patching the game should be pretty damn good.
