Neither of which who who wrote the original diablo story
But, what was the original Diablo story?
Diablo 1's story was basically "I heard Diablo is hiding under that church. I'm'a go get him."
Diablo 2's story was basically "I heard Diablo went that way. I'm'a go get him."
If you didn't like the story, then you have just missed the point.
If you don't know what their stories were I suggest you spend a few minutes and go look them up... It's kind of ironic to have someone suggest that disliking D3's story could only be the result of having "missed the point." in the same post as utterly missing the point of the first 2 games...
Thank you melyria for helping prove it was written by hacks.
>An American Tale
As someone else noted Fievel Goes West was, while a fun kids' movie, not even remotely comparable to the original American Tale which was a phenomenally made film. I'd even call the sequel a bit trashy and insulting to the original work. In the original you have a allegorical story of Jewish flight from persecution in Eastern Europe and Russia during the 19th and early 20th century. It's a surprisingly dark work about prejudice, discrimination, identity, greed, family and assimilation.
Compare it to its sequel which was basically a silly Western that capitalized on the already popular characters of the previous film by inserting them into a completely new circumstance that feels almost entirely irrelevant and unrelated to the first movie. While I enjoyed the movie as a child, as an actual work of cinema and storytelling it's pretty awful when compared to the first film.
So actually I think it's quite appropriate that one of the writers of D3 is a guy who has a history, apparently, of writing sequels that remove all subtlety, sophistication, and meaning and replace them with cheap spectacle. The rest of his history looks like Saturday morning cartoons, which sounds about right for this game as well...
