Sad. Just sad that because Blizzard slaps their logo on something people are willing to just accept any standard for game design.
Has nothing to do with logos, no idea what part of my post you took this from. The game could have been made by NCSoft or anyone else. Fun game = fun game. And speaking of NCSoft...
Sure, it's not an MMO. It's basically a single player ARPG designed around the gear chase. The problem is that they've done everything possible to make that grind as monotonous, boring, and sometimes unrewarding as hell for days on end.
You haven't played many games have you lol. Specifically, anything by NCSoft. You think Diablo's grind is bad? You're spoiled, bud. Everything's guaranteed - either by virtue of patience through monster drop, crafting (sorta), or the AH. Either farm it or buy it - heaps of folks have no problem doing this.
So yeah, don't expect people to sing high praises simply because they've slapped on some band-aid fixes and cosmetic changes without actually altering the root problems with the game.
People don't need to sing high praise, but people do need to remove heads from rear before going all up-in-arms. And speaking of root problems with the game, I have yet to see one pointed out in this thread. Please note that buzzphrases like 'dumbed-down', 'clone', 'appealing to age groups', and other vague complaints don't actually provide examples of key problems with the game. What I do see is 'I PLAYED THIS FOR X THOUSAND HOURS AND IT SUCKS'. If it sucks, the hell you still doin here?
then fking tell them to change the game's name.it's such a pathetic thinking you have there.
Why should they change it? And what should it be? It's the Diablo storyline, but with boobs and newer graphics.
Your bandwagon is boring and baseless, but at least it's carrying you out the door (I hope).
