So, I've seen a lot of people talking (by which I mean whining) about how D3 hasn't had any huge expansions recently, and these folks often talk about wanting D4. I want to know what people want from a new Diablo.
I've seen one ask for an MMORPG with Dark Souls-esque combat (which I think doesn't seem very Diablo-y, but that's me), and another ask for a more Borderlands approach (not even sure what all was meant by that, to be honest). And, of course, there have been many, many requests that the next Diablo take a more Skyrim style approach.
Personally, i don't like any of these, because it seems every RPG is either becoming Dark Souls, Skyrim, or something along the lines of Shadow of Mordor or Witcher. While I do like these games, I don't want the same five games in my library, all with slightly different skins. So, how best to keep what makes Diablo Diablo, while still progressing the franchise and being fresh? (and no, being fresh does not mean being D2. Again, great game, but we have it, we need not make it again and say it's new).
Personally, I like the idea of expanding the follower dynamic of D3. Not making it a party based game, but introducing some new aspects that will make having companions like the Templar or Scoundrel more interesting. Perhaps have them capable of equipping more stuff, having more abilities, and being more active in the story line itself.
Anyway, thoughts? What should D4 be?
