Just sayin'

You mean like how we got slapped with the DRM? And I don't know who has been slapping you, but if you're not disoriented and stumbling around the room after a slap, it's not a proper slap. So if quality gaming came around and issued slaps, I'd play nothing but terrible games.

On-topic, right. D3 isn't a terrible game. It's not even a bad game. But it was made by terribly bad people that know exactly how hard they can wring their customers' necks without losing any of them.

I don't find the protection scheme intrusive, so im not one of the moaning massive out there.

Again when people moaned about it having this kind of protection they just moaned about it when they finally got it and wanted to go back to physical media again, but again it was mostly by the warez users who complained when they finally realised that online protection = harder to get your free copy. And it was all evident with Assassin's Creed 2, for over a month people cried about it.

I never bought it, myself. I played at a friend's house, and after about a week with it he came back to Path of Exile with me. If you're going to require online authentication and whatnot, at least make it an MMO, know what I mean?

But anyway, I understand why they did it. I understand why they implemented the real money auction house, and I have no problem with online play requiring a login. I just don't understand why they couldn't at least give us the option to play offline.

Maybe I'm just getting old, but LAN and offline functionality are still a pretty big part of how I enjoy MP. Toss everyone's keys in the fishbowl and lock the doors, no internet (amended to no TVTropes these days), play until you pass out. You know, how games should be. Days when I can't play StarCraft and Diablo without breaking the internet rule are sad indeed.

This game isn't anything special. Just a repetitive adventure game with hack/slash elements. My motivation to complete each difficulty level is decreasing rather fast now (Hell difficulty and I'm progressing through it with no trouble at all).

Diablo II was executed better. The main problem with Blizzard's newer games is the overhaul of the Battle.net system. They removed so many elements to try and focus on integrating the gameplay and the social aspect of it. This was a huge mistake. The classic Battle.Net was a very good IRC type of chat system that did not force itself into the gameplay and left it extremely simple for in-game chatting. This helped develop a hacker-ish style community which was loved by many. That feel was completely destroyed in SC2 nor in Diablo III. This is the main reason why I spent almost a decade on Brood War and I can guarantee that I will never invest as much time as I would in D3 nor in SC2 as much as I did with BW.

Clearly the OP has not played Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. If they had, clearly they would have known where to post a suggestion towards "worst game of the year." Diablo III may not be the best game in the series (and clearly the DRM has caused some fuss), but it is by no means the worst game of the year. I actually wonder if the OP has even played the game as most complaints about the game have been generated by those not even playing the game because of their opposition to the specific implementation of DRM. Personally, I enjoy the game thus far.

Repetitive adventure with hack/slash...

Just like Diablo 2?

They kept the formula, but the difficulty increases and the randomness of some of the maps keeps it a replayable title, and being the first game where you can legally earn money from is another amazing thing.

D3 is IMHO bigger than D2.

Personally I think you have been soured by it before getting it, as you know there was a lot of negativity with it, even you were negative.

But you also have to remember not a lot of games out there are refreshing and non-repetitive. So its not like its uniquely repetitive.

You are wrong. My team was actually planning to buy it and do some runs with it over Ventrilo. Maybe a week after we were like "**** this lets go back to DotA/whatever" and I became the only person that still plays it more than 1 hour per week. Not only that but I'm an active member of TL which is a community that eats, sleeps, and breathes anything Blizzard. One day you will learn to not generalize so you won't be wrong.

Earning money involves investing tons of time and effort which many people do not have and all for maybe 10 bucks per week in an optimistic point of view? I have quite a bit of legendary items I've been recycling through the RMAH and checking to be sure others were selling (research every time I recycle them). Nobody ever bid on them and I've even set the buyout price at fire-sale levels. I'm pretty much just going to dump it in one of my friends games and just say "have fun with this crap".

Again in my eyes, it's nothing special.

Protection system NOT intrustive and DRM is ok? Here is a word for you that shows how DRM should be done: STEAM

To be fair, it is not worst game.

Diablo 3 isn't the game for RPG fan who want good character / story line.

Diablo 3 is for players who doesn't mind mindless grinding and hunt down the best gear possible. (Basically the formula they had in World of warcraft.)

To me.. I know the game isn't for me when I play beta. I still bought the game because I want to see the story contiune after the skeleton king. At end I found the story isn't that interesting and story is as bad as recent wow lore. (Spend a hr to travel around the world to save thrall's soul but end up witness he marry to Aggra. What happen to the regrow the world three?)
