Oh god please do not buy D3. Seriously the game is beyond horrible. I cannot believe all the people saying buy it, I bet they are the same ones who bitch about f2p games and saying they're pay to win when Diablo 3 is literally one of the only games I know of that is in fact pay to win. It is also infested with botters who have ruined the economy and Blizzard is fine with them because they bring in revenue from the scrubs who are dumb enough to use the Real Money Auction House (yeah you read that right). 

 

If you want a decent ARPG hold out for Path of Exile or Grim Dawn both are going to be f2p. If you want a good Diablo game go with Diablo 2, it was great and I'm sure its still infinitely better than Diablo 3. If you want to know how bad D3 just look at all the player auction sites and people selling their D3 accounts and the zero people who actually buy them. It is a god aweful game made by a once great company who lost all its talent years ago.

 

Also its a massive grind with little to no pay off. The story is complete crap even for a diablo game. The levels are clones of their D2 equivalents, as are the classes, seriously the lack of originality is pathetic. The first play through on normal will be moderately fun because you will actually be getting gear and building your char and skills and whatnot, plus you'll be moderately interested in the story but after that its all down hill like a friggin landslide.

Its not to bad I suppose but for someone like me who enjoys dungeon crawlers, its the weaker of the three newest dungoen crawler choice. Torchlight 2 provided me with a lot more play time and fun. Path of Exile has also provided me with fun just waiting for beta.

 

If your into the old style dungeon crawler, focused on player skill and knowledge of the game, then diablo 3 is a poor experience.


except if you liked D2 for the closed bnet servers and pvp, then TL2 is not for you (or me)

i couldn't stand open bnet and that's basically what TL2 is from what i have read, no thanks.

that said, i am still waiting for pvp in D3 and until then i likely wont play too much.

this is horrible advice IMO

D3 may not be the game everyone hoped it would be but it is far from horrible.

then you go on to recommend D2? as if D2 is so much better? because it doesn't have the RMAH?

basically, if the RMAH is a game breaker for you don't buy it, if no pvp is a game breaker for you, don't buy it.

other than that its a pretty good ARPG.

Exactly:

 

If you don't like the RMAH use the Gold AH.  If you don't like the Gold AH just solo your character. 

 

You don't need godly gear to enjoy Inferno and there is plenty to keep you busy if you want to work your way through paragon levels and MP levels.  TL2 doesn't offer anything closed bnet D2 fans want.  TL2 is already dead.  Look at all of the complaints on their forums where players can't find people to play with on their NG+ level.  It will get worse when they release mod tool and the player base gets splintered into dozens of tiny groups of players.

 

POE is an unpolished game with boring gameplay, passive only skill trees and amateurish art direction.  It's also taking them forever to get into an open beta.  Who knows how long it will be before their paid beta actually releases.  The team clearly is small and inexperienced.

 

Grim Dawn is just a twinkle in their creators eyes.  It's way too far away to discuss.

 

The only game that can challenge D3 is Lineage Eternal, but I have no idea when they will release in the US/EU or what the game will be like (other than the visually interesting gameplay video they released).

It's funny, peopel keep saying how much D3 has improved over the last while since release, but honestly, it hasn't added all that much. Sure, you have 100 or whatever Paragon levels to grind through, and you can fight uber bosses now, but there really isn't THAT big of a difference from launch until now.

The game is what it is, and I do consider it more entertaining than TL2, but it's not a very good game in terms of storyline, the RMAH, gear drop rates and longevity. I'm also just really not a fan of the skill system implemented, which unfortunately is the entire combat system and majority fo the gameplay.

Just my opinion of course. It's a decent game, and you'd get likely get enough hours out of it to warrant a purchase, but it's still a very shallow game that will likely leave you disappointed overall.

I enjoyed my time with the game. It's best enjoyed with a couple buddies, and I'm only selling now since my last few friends from the game have stopped playing. 

I know a lot of people are hating on the RMAH, but I think it's wicked. I don't buy on there, only sell, but once my last few items sell (hopefully in the next couple days) I should be cashing out with well over $250. Playing the AH in WoW was always fun as HELL to me, and so the idea of getting to do that with real money, with no real cost to myself was incredibly entertaining. 

Best time was I found a legendary on my birthday that was near best-in-slot. Sold later that night for $90 on the RMAH, what a hell of a birthday present from Bliz!

Wait until it's on sale, don't expect it to play like a straight MMORPG, and you should get several enjoyable hours out of it. If nothing else, just playing the normal mode for a single player storyline type experience could be worth it!

All of history is a lie. The truth depends on who does the listening, and who does the telling...

He's probably posting here for the same reason I did even though I don't enjoy the game. A question was asked and he has some experience with the game and thus formed enough of an opinion to answer the question.  I happen to agree with his points on the combat system and the fact that the changes haven't really done enough to warrant saying the game has improved enough to change my opinion. It's not like he came in here and made shit up and spouted it as factual data. Not all opinions will be in agreement. At least he actually answered the question rahter than trolling someone elses opinion >.>.

If you can get it for $30 or less, I would say it's a no-brainer. Buy it.

I'm probably more confused about why you posted this comment - as it doesn't have anything to do with what I said - than you are about mine being posted.

Can't say anything about being worthwhile - everyone should decide that for themselves. But right now D3 is much, much better than it used to be. If there ever was a true miracle patch it was D3 1.0.5.

MMORPG genre is dead. Long live MMOCS (Massively Multiplayer Online Cash Shop).

If you like combat heavy ARPG, this is THE game to play. Each class have many skills and build options, and just that will last a long time.

Just give an example, i started the game when it was released back in March, and I only have TWO (wiz and barb) L60 toons (although i do have one of each class).

While the dungeon content is limited (only 4 chapters), the class design is very good, and each plays very differently. Just go to diablofans.com forum, and sample a bit of the guides. Just wiz has 4-5 viable builds, and people are trying new ones very often.

It is better than TL2 (which i am also playing) just because it has more class content (skills and progression), and much more polished. TL2 is quite obviously much lower budget (not a bad game though).

Yeh. And consider than it is still like #6 or #7 on Xfire after 8 months.

1.05 is very good. Essentially give almost unlimited challenge (yes, i know there are those who can do MP10 with ease, but that is not me, and probably not you and 99.9% of the players).

Xfire..Lmao.

Why do people like you still continue to use a program like xfire to determine how popular a game is?

Show us something better and we'll use that.  Prove XFire is baseless and we'll ignore it.   Good luck with either.

The game is a bore compared to D2 and TL2.

Why do people like YOU care what other people use to determine how popular a game is? Or are you the Supreme Master and we should all just use what  YOU determine the propper method?

It really depends. Did you hate TL2? Did you ever wish it were a lot less like a Diablo game? Do you want to play a real money treadmill game where you can just burn cash all day? Only if you said yes to all 3, are you ready to try "Diablo" 3. On the other hand, if you want a great ARPG with good itemization that is like Diablo 2, try Borderlands.
