Cains Death wasn't epic enough.

    Two things. One, Cain should have put up more of a fight. Two, his death should have warranted a cinematic on it's own, apart from the act cinematic.

    Please post a spoiler alert in your title or somewhere before you announce the death of a primary character in a completely separate series. You have definitely just dampened that experience for me.
    If you didn't want to see any spoilers, then perhaps visiting a fan site where there's bound to be spoilers everywhere (especially 2 months after the game came out) isn't the best idea. It's your fault, not mine.

    EDIT: just realised you weren't talking about Diablo. Most sincere apologies to a fellow gears player. How have you managed to dodge all of the spoilers from all over the internet?

    Cain was old in D1 already... He needed to die, and what better way then in the course of the game and not of old age between 2 games in the series... was it epic? No. Does Cain deserve his full CG cinematic... don't think so.

    "Oh cain's dead?" = my reaction.
    May the heroes rise from the pit of despair and the bards sing of the day of death renewed to everlasting
    immortality....awaiting your return to the lands of Sanctuary may peace be with you on this day...your day of birth.

    I haven't actually gotten much into the online gears scene and have really only finished the first one, albeit I have gone through it about 4 or 5 times. But those were of such enjoyment that I figured I would play the 2nd and 3rd when the time comes. But I am more concerned about the journey rather than the destination when it comes to stories (unless I am very into a certain series) or all of that hype people talk about; in short, no worries, just a suggestion for the future.

    :D

    Cain can survive anything! He was locked up by demons in Tristram forever after all.. :P

    Worst death ever.
    In game cutscene, dies to a MINION or a less evil....by butterflies.....
    Should have been something more like: Goes into the dream Leah is trapped in to try and save her, gets blasted by the evils.... or set upon by all the other evils stored in the black soulstone and gets his soul ripped apart by them, ......or eaten by Azmodan during the assault on the keep, or killed by Adria during her betrayal, or blasted by DiabLeah.... heck, even crushed by Belial would have been better.

    i feel the same about cains death feels like silly reparing the tyrial sword that normaly in that condition was impossible just by toutching it
    even the sword repair is not that epic /sad

    It seemed so damn stupid that he escaped certain death at least a dozen times, only to be killed by butterflies. So poorly written.

    I totally agree, I actually missed the part in Nightmare when he dies simply because it didn't catch my attention.But in overall, yes they didn't put enough effort.But with this we must not forget the epicness of the cinematics.

    This event deserves an "end of act" movie cinematic, blizzard should patch this, but defiantly too late now :(



    Whoa whoa whoa... And switch it with the "I am Justice" cinematic? Stop.

    Unfortunately, I do have to agree with you. I personally feel that Cain's death was somewhat anti-climactic. I have not played Diablo 1 or 2, so as you can probably deduce, Diablo 3 was my first introduction to Cain and the world of Diablo. With that said, even in that short time during Act 1, when Cain was still alive, I became very fond of his character. I enjoyed listening to his journals and the stories he had regarding his relationship with Leah. I actually skipped the cinematic part where Maghda killed Cain the first time (obviously not having any idea that it was going to happen) and then all of a sudden he was dead and I was very confused. So I went back to the part where he died and I was very disappointed in how quickly it went by. If Cain were to die, I would have expected the characters to try and save him, as they did in the Cathedral, or be frozen in place or prevented in some other type of way from helping him and Leah.

    For the most part, I think the game has been made exceptionally well and I enjoy most of the story line. It's just that Cain's death sequence leaves me wanting something more, not sure what but just.... something, we all know it's too late now to do anything about it, but it is nice to know that some others feel the same way.

    :D

    Agreed, it was very lame and uninspired, much like the rest of the story. Now, I don't expect Diablo to have a great storyline and it's not what I play the game for. However, that doesn't mean they can't at least... try. I mean, they had a long, long time to work on this game.

    TL;DR: Deckard Cain's death sucked.

    Agreed, but to be honest I believe the Act 1 end cinematic makes up for it (you know, Leah realizing it wasn't all just stories and deciding to follow his legacy).

    I thought it was good how Cain died. You don't always need plot twists, meteors, and/or Bruce Willis to kill off major characters. I liked how it was unexpected. People criticize the game too much. I think after all the wait people had their own vision of what Diabo 3 should be and are disappointed when Blizzard has different ideas than them.

    Cinematic yes, more of a fight no... he was 83 (or close to that) with no combat fighting capabilities WTF do you expect.

    Let’s not get into the Leah part of the story "Derr his stories are crazy but I remember undead seeing skeletons with him as a child".

    Overall they put an attempt to put a story in for a hack n slash game, bravo; however the overall attempt was not very good.
    Playing Diablo since 97. I know nothing and having nothing good to say, I be a troll.

    I agree with you in that regards. Although Cain's death was disappointing. The cinematic was really heartwarming. Showing Leah truly grieving for her Uncle and the sacrifices that he made for her and everything. Who knows, they could always come out with an extended scene of Maghda fighting Cain. Probably not, but one can hope.

    :D

    Knowledge is power, and he had power enough to mend El'druin. Even if he didn't have much of a fight to put up physically, he should at least be able to defend himself with magic.

    My heart broke as I realized that I would not see Cain back in D4 or expansions. He is just part of the show...
