This attitude you have is forcing me to reply. D3 is a good AAA game ARPG. Among the best out there currently. It has the potential to be great depending on patches and expansions.Quote from Adon
What did they do right? What did they do that is worthy of the Diablo franchise name?
Many might disagree with some design decisions made, but the end result is a fun game and in the spirit of the diablo franchise. No other game since D2 has even come close. They are not perfect, especially since this is a completely new group, new classes, new engine, new design concepts, they have made some mis-steps but nothing that they are not addressing currently.
If you're so narrow minded to even ask "What did they do right" then sadly my opinion of your intelligence and maturity is vastly diminished. Not that in your immaturity would care.
In fact if D3 is such a mess to you, do us all a favor and find another game. Spare us your presence in these forums.
