Now, the biggest thing about Diablo 1 and 2, and now 3, is that I like going out an killing monsters. That's why I play, that's why I stay...
I bought Diablo 3 because I wanted an online action RPG with lots of character customization and epic loot.
I was wrong.

Diablo 3 horde's so much of them that it's a feast. :)
D3 is way better than D2. And yes fortunately, i still play D2 to this day.
Idk, I think they really made a very, very poor decision in trying to screw with the classic RPG formula here. Rpgs are supposed to be largely about customization, about making your own personal character that you can take some pride in, personal playstyles, in depth strategies, stuff like that. Well, they took all that, gutted it, then pretty much didn't put anything else back in. This is like D2 with upgraded graphics and performance, only without a good 3/4 of what actually made the prior game enjoyable. How the hell are you supposed to NOT get bored to tears when you have access to 6 skills, some of which are passive, at any given time? When everyone looks the same and almost everyone of every class is looking for roughly the exact same thing in gear? When everyone winds up using some variation of the exact same 2 or 3 builds because there's only so much you can do with 6 skill slots and 3 passive slots that's really more like only having 1 or 2 passive slots because there's always 1-2 must-have passive for each class?
Someone else mentioned multiplayer lacking here; well, I have to say that I loved D2 and never even set foot online.
This just...doesn't feel like an RPG. No, I guess it does, it just feels like an RPG in its very earliest stages of development, because there's absolutely no meat to the game. There's nothing there to be interested in or excited about.
I won't lie, I waited so long for D3 to come out assuming it would be at least a fair bit like the last two diablos, so I was absolutely crushed when I'd played the game for a few days and was already starting to feel the tinges of boredom setting in on me. I'd hoped I was misunderstanding something, that something would change as I got higher leveled, but it never did.
The fact is that they can patch the ever loving crap out of this game, but patches are really only meant to fix games that are already good and need small fixes to perfect it. This is broken at its very core. D3 is going to keep steadily going downhill unless they're willing to admit they screwed up and change the very fundamentals of the game itself, but I honestly don't see them doing that. They can pretend, but we all know full well that the way D3 is just does not work at all.
