By rushing, do you mean speed farming? If so, I can only assume that console is similar if not "worse" than PC, due to the availability of item hacks (on console). As for the PC community, speed farming is simply what is most efficient and as such, has been widely adopted by the player-base. It is probably also worth mentioning that the game itself is designed for drop-in drop-out multiplayer, with adventure mode content aiming to cost a player no more than 15 minutes at a time (the time limit on any given GR). Clans and communities are also prevalent in-game which reduces seek time for groups, as does the public group feature.
Sorry for being cryptic but what I ment was is that I'm talking to my companion and they rush through the story and making me miss my conversation and when I tried to talk to to the person he ignores me.
So is there anyone on this forum who has a Ultimate Evil Edition on the PS3 let me know now.
Oh I haven't came across modded weapons or armor yet since that will freeze my game like on Dead Island.
