Is it any good? I only played Diablo 2 briefly like 10 years ago.

You know, this game is actually really really entertaining. I’m not much of an RPG player, but here we go.

A quick breakdown of the phases I went through before and after getting the game.

Before:

  • Oh my god, this game looks so good.
  • Oh my god I want this game so fucking bad.
  • *All other games became boring to me because they were not Diablo 3.
  • Ruined any enjoyment of other games.
  • Watched online reviews about the game via YouTube.
  • Lost a lot of hype about the game, started to second guess getting it.

After Purchase:

  • I probably shouldn’t have bought this, the reviews all seemed like Blizzard wrote them and sent the people scripts to read.
  • Alright, it’s too late to turn back now, I already spent the money

After Installation // beginning to play:

  • Oh, maybe those reviews were right.
  • Oh man, this game is cool.
  • Oh WOW, what the fuck is that thing?
  • HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!
  • OH GOD I CAN’T STOP PLAYING!

So now you see, albeit a lot of the reviews out there seems a little like blizzard was trying to push their own game, it actually is worth it. Now coming from someone who never played Diablo or Diablo 2, I can say that there is a bit of a learning curve to the story line, but over time they seem to explain it pretty well.

I’m not much of a man for single player games, so that’s my personal downside to Diablo 3. I don’t like playing it alone. So the multiplayer facet of it makes it super entertaining. Example: Take a good game that was only single player, mod it so that it has multiplayer ability, enjoy. That’s how multiplayer feels, like it’s still meant for single, but the mobs do scale their stats depending on the amount of players.

The story line is kind of…. predictable though, but that does not make it any less entertaining, you’re kinda like “Oh he’s gonna do that, OH HE TOTALLY DID, NO WAY!!!” Not to mention the huge amount of time it takes to complete the acts, which isn’t such a bad thing, considering you do not realize just how long you’ve been at it until you check your play time.

So all in all, if you have the money to spare for it, and you want a good game with a seemingly infinite amount or replay-ability, then this is where it’s at.
