Looking for input on D3 from a non-fanboy

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone has picked up Diablo 3 that is not a fanboi. Nothing wrong with being a fanboi but we all know you think that this is the best game ever so I honestly don't care what you think (no offence).
Im just out of games right now and I was wondering if Diablo 3 was any good, I played diablo 2 and LOD for a few years and I enjoyed it. I was just looking for some non-biased input on the issue.

I personally hated all games like Diablo, never played the 1st or second, and I didn't even want to play the third, thought it looked bad, but I got it bought for me for building a guy a pc (he made me take it) and I would have felt bad just selling it so I played it last night at release, ended up going to bed at like 3 because I was so tired. That being said I really liked the first 3 hours, I played with 3 other friends and we wrecked it. Class system is unique and its kind of weird not having the traditional healer class. Overall I do enjoy the game and I give it, as of now, an 8 out of 10.

Cool, Im really just hesitant about dropping 50 bux on a blizzard title on what looks like part 2 with slightly better graphix.

I never played the first or second diablo. I'm very impressed and I've been playing the game for about an hr so far. I highly recommend it.

I had to get off or I won't get any sleep for work tonight! Its very addictive.

just played the starter verison with the free game key a certain member on this forum gave thumb.gif. I actually thaught it would be something great since so many people are raving over this. But i guess this isnt my cup of tea, the quests seem really boring after a few hours of gameplay and dont really see anything new in this. I guess im comparing the style too much to guildwars 2 even though they differ in many aspects. Im sure those who enjoy this kind of gameplay would find D3 more more appealing than i do.

I wish it was! Unfortunately the game has been dumbed down and I'm quite hesitant to buy it after playing the beta. Will probably end up buying it anyway at some point.

oddly enough, this "dumbing down" of the game helped me and my friends like the game more. our runs focus on just plain bashing/killing stuff rather than worrying how we can achieve the "ultimate build". yes, we all played diablo 2 but we had plenty of time back then to polish our characters but now that we work full time, we just dont have enough time to worry about doing the math to perfect builds.

If you have to ask then it is better to wait a few day for the dust to settle, and look at the reviews, etc.
It is not like you can't wait.

Oh yeah, because online reviews are SO helpful
http://pc.ign.com/articles/819/819371p2.html
I mean two worlds got 7.3 out of 10 so it MUST be good right?
And you know the Halo and COD games that have not come out yet? Yeah the reviews are already done and they got 9-9.5
Independent blogger reviews are written by fanbois.

Not a die-hard fanboi. I do own all 3 Diablos. However i say im NOT a fanboi cause i NEVER beat any of them. LOL. im more of a fan of Final Fantasy and racing games. But onto your topic, Like Nethermir said, its fun, run around bashing, collecting items, you can stop at any time, pick up right where you left off. quickly join friends games even when they are playing a solo game. Jump in help them out questing or just to hang out. Definitely a big step from D2.
If you like just being able to jump into a game do a few things, not worry about how far you NEED to get before you can jump off and save. then Diablo 3 is for you. Graphics are great, cinemas are fantastic on 1080p. Cant find anything wrong with it. Been playing it the past 4 hrs. havent stopped, its addictive. But i was able to pull myself away to get lunch and surf the boards. HAHA definately not a World of Warcraft kinda suck you in and dont let you go before a quest is done...you can always stop mid quest and pick back up.

$59 worth it? yeah....but could you wait and see if there is a price drop by $5-10 in the next 3-4months, dont know/think so, black friday would be the time to get it for a slight discount. I played the closed and open betas for the game, so i knew what i was looking forward to.

the Standard and Collectors editions DO come with 3-4 FREE Trial keys for friends to play all of ACT 1 (total of 4 ACTS) so if you got a friend that can give you a key, try it out and if you like it, then purchase the game.
