    Hmm, I just viewed some of the trailers for The Witcher, and I think it shows off that a 3d perspective for Diablo 3 could be done quite well if done right.

    Something like this might be a good idea in my opinion..

    I have not played Witcher yet, but I examined the screenshots, I don't think that Witcher's graphics fit Diablo well because they are intended for a close-up view. I would actually like it better if Diablo 3 had a 2D background with 3D models, similar to how Sacred, Kult: Heretic Kingdoms, and, if I'm not mistaken, Baldur's Gate did it. This gives a customizable and crisp background leaving the rest to the 3D models of the characters and monsters.

    Speaking of the quality of 3D models, Lineage 2, Titan Quest, Heroes 5 are the best.

    hmm the witchers graphics are interesting, maybe imo, but i have yet to play it, i want to play it first

    imo graphics like GOW, Guild wars, perhaps the latest final fantasy graphics (hell no not the gameplay tho)

    i dont like D2 graphics if it was for D3, although Nostalga is nice sometimes when you play old games i would love to see Diablo and the old and favourites in incredibly realistic models and the new graphics we have today ofc as long as it keeps the atmopshere, the atmopshere of Diablo 2 and especialyl the first game i think is priceless, imo no game involving wicked and evil creatures like demons has ever been so well made in atmopshere especially.

    i wouldnt mind playing D3 in Gow style gameplay, ofc with all the awsome items and gear were used to, drops and such. But more innovative bosses like things where theres tactics to battles instead of bashing or spellcasting over and over.

    Diablo II but impressivly upgraded
    OR
    God of war

    Voted for god of war since its updated to this time's graphics...
    but an upgraded diablo II would be better perhaps ;)
    Diablo is my oxid

    I voted Titan Quest and God of War, I prefer you see more of the terrain surrounding rather than it being too close.

    Diablo II had very large areas to cover, I'm sure Diablo III would have even more.

    Possibly depending on which area you in, it may zoom in closer for areas that are inside, but while outside you can see further distances.

    If they go into more detail about how much you can customize your character then hopefully close enough to see your character in enough detail, to pick out and see the specific items that you are carrying.

    My main concern is how indepth they go into customization, that was exactly what makes diablo II so popular, the pure range of variety in weapons. I hope they they go into more detail, even down to modifying your face (Oblivion style) to having different looks for all weapons/armour as much as possible. I loved how when you socketed certain items that they would change in colour depending on which gem you chose.

    The whole point is make people want to improve their character and show him/her off to his friend of how hardcore he/she looks, but without it looking anywhere similar to someone else who has the same type armour.
    Exactly why WOW is so popular, not the gameplay, just the pure feeling of being some hardcore warrior with the ability to do magic makes people feel better.

    I based my choices on pics presented. The only ones I have played on this list are Diablo II and Sacred.

    That's a shame, Heroes5 is really probably the most detailed game out there...

    I want Diablo 1, but there isn't a choice...
    Make way for Dark Helmet!
  • #31
    i dont see why anyone would want Diablo 1 graphics, i mean i know its nostalga and all but i think that would ruin it, for new gamers moslty to the series but also slightly for people like me who would like to see the game with a big graphics boost

    i think as long as blizz dont go for cartoony, keep it dark and mysterious with a bit of gothic style, as long as it keeps Diablo 1 style with improved graphics i think it would be excellent, Diablo 1 graphics itself however i cant imagine being a hit

    you can sharpen them up make them clearer but they are still the same, BG and BGII use the same graphics engine yet there is a bit of a difference between the two.

    why not the graphics like Crysis :D
  • #34
    I dont know that game, hence i didnt include it.

    I don't know like, at least 12 of these games.

    well take a look at this http://maxygames.no.sapo.pt/Crysis.jpg

    extreme graphic
  • #37
    Hmm it's kinda hard about the graphic. But I think that they should do somthing like D2 but only "better". A new graphic engine also.
    Diablo are special in everything, also in the graphic and I think that Blizzard will make somthing really tasty for ous Diablo fans in Diablo 3.
    This is my signature, they are many like them but this one is mine. Without my signature I Am useless, without me, my signature is useless.

    D3 will be 3D therefore there can be no improvement.
