I played Diablo 2 like I was being paid for it. I played it virtually all day, every day, for about 5 years. I was playing D2 on a really sh#$%^! Compaq Presario PC and it actually ran great on it. After Diablo 2 became stale (and INFESTED with bots and scammers) I decided it was time to get a new computer. Luckily, shortly after this, I got a nice check from my grandmother passing away (R.I.P.) so I took almost $1000 and bought a brand new computer, complete with all the best bells and whistles that were available at the time, some nice software and a nice gaming keyboard/mouse. The main reason I spent this money on the PC was because Blizzard said they were working on Diablo 3 and I wanted to make sure my PC was going to run it like a champ. Low and behold, the game took yet another 5 or 6 years to actually release and by that time, my $1000 PC was way behind the times, in terms of what PC's are today. To sum it up, I bought a brand new PC to play D3 and since they took their sweet fu%$ing time releasing it, my computer was actually NOT spec'd once it finally did come out. Now granted, this is partially my own damn fault for getting the PC and I do not blame Blizzard entirely for this but you have to admit, I got !@#$ed over since they took so long to release the game.
Here's the other reason why I am asking about this. I pre-ordered the CE of this and picked it up the day it was released. I got home, installed it (took over an hour to install) and loaded it up. I quickly realized that I couldn't run it on my current pc hardware. As I spent my last $100 on the CE, I was not about to go pay more money to upgrade my pc to run it (AGAIN). Luckily, I managed to get a good deal on a decent video card and some very nice help from a PC expert friend of mine about how to overclock and all the benefits that brings. I also would like to play this with my PS3 friends, is another reason I want to get the console version.
I enjoy the game, I really do. It's fun and it's more-or-less a nostalgia thing for me because it reminds me of all the grinding and time I spent on Diablo 2. Was it worth waiting over 10 years for? Absolutely not, but hey, at least we FINALLY got Diablo 3. I really want to buy the console version (perks include the lack of AH and an offline mode) but I don't know if I can make peace with the fact that if I do buy the console version, it will be basically like I paid $160 for the game. Not to mention the other random amount for the video card I got just to run it in the LOW settings and the $1000 PC I bought 5 years ago.
So what do you all think? Should I spend yet another $60 to play this game or should I just keep playing it on PC since I already own it?
