Yea.. if they ever did decided to do one.. i think they should do it as an fps..
Or incorporate somewhat of a fps type. like for bosses jump into fps mode and make it kinda like oblivion or morrowind when the weapons and you can self block or aim arrows to do damage in criticals areas etc etc
I agree with killing demon556, a fps-style camera is appropriate in some cases, as in Oblivion (even there, you could switch to third person if you wanted), but Diablo doesn't fit the bill in my opinion. Diablo is about killing hordes upon hordes of monsters, often coming at you in all directions. I think that a third person perspective lends itself nicely because you have a view of the larger picture, rather than looking at just a slice of the action.

Im not saying like you can switch it at certain times.. but maybe if a room is emtpy and theres only a boss... and then like.. you can go to 1st person and have a reticle where like.. weak spots appear and if you aim at them they do more damage
First off i dont want to be mean but d3 as a fps would probably be well lame..ur idea is great but most diablo fans arent looking for aim hack and slash they're looking for plain old hack an slash. However no ideas are aways a good thing its just that well ur probably gonna get a shitload of bad post about how some people dont agree with you so in there mind that makes you dum as dirt so dont be suprised if some people get nasty about this thread. Not saying they will but they might. Personally i dont think i would like it as a fps.
