    Truth be told, I havnt been excited by a blizzard product since wow, and I havnt played that game in years. My gut tells me no, but like anything in life things can change.

    You know, many of the answers here kinda makes it sounds like the Blizzard stamp is more important than quality???

    I understand the opinion "I know this company usually makes good games so I will keep my eyes open on the games they make and buy anything that looks good". But I buy whatever they make no matter how good or bad it seems sounds more like a cult.

    Large companies like Blizzard changes fast with time and few employees since Starcraft still works there (and Diablo 1 & 2 were actually made by Blizzard North which doesn't exist anymore and while D1s lead designer were moved to Blizzard he have since founded both ANEt and Undead labs).

    Blizzard have indeed still made som good game, I don't argue with that (I liked WC3 as example) but buying anything they make whatever?

    I do keep my eyes out for certain devs games a bit extra but I check up all games before I get anything and all games I buy are on their own merit. In other words: I stopped buying junk games.

    I can't speak for everyone else, but for me, I've enjoyed the Warcraft series and the Diablo series for years. So, while I don't run out and buy Blizzard games right away without looking into them first, their track record makes me more inclined to give their games a shot.

     

    It's the same with Elder Scrolls. I've been a huge fan of every game but Oblivion, but I still gave Skyrim a shot and liked it.

     

    For me, it's not OMG BLIZZ GAEM MUST HAV IT, but more along the lines of they have a solid track record in my eyes, so even if I don't buy one of their new games right away, I'll probably give said new game a shot eventually, especailly if nothing else out there is catching my eyes at the time.

    They don't seem to do games with design I like anymore, so me finding game from Blizzard I would like seem very unpredictiable. So propably I won't buy any.

     

    Also things like RMAH disqualify game for me so...

    The question should (more accurately) be "Will you ever buy another Activision Blizzard game?"  Activision is Blizzard an Blizzard is Activision....one in the same.

    Now, to the question as re-written, no I would not because I do not like the way Activision Blizzard are being run. The CEO of the company has only the interest of making money and not of making unique OR quality games. I am not against making money but I am against making money without regard to quality of product. Same goes for companies like EA, THQ, Take2 and so on. If they produce poor quality games, they are less likely to get my business. If more gamers thought that way, quality and good games would become the concern and not JUST making money.

    Let's party like it is 1863!

    Diablo 3 "Buy-to-win"??

     

    Against who? What for? Win what?

     

    It is not Battlefield 3. It is not League of Legends. It is not a pvp game, you are NOT required to compete against anyone or get left behind or get ganked and laugh at.

     

    Therefore I find your notion of Diablo 3 as "Buy-to-win" as being quite funny and lacking logic.

     

    Diablo 3 is nothing more than a single player time grinder game with an engine that can allow you to play with other people easier. You can grind just fine with whatever you looted/crafted by yourself.

    Umm... you obviously are not considering the future ramifications of anything happening here, are you?  PVP will launch, and guess what?  If you don't buy up, you won't be on  a winning team.  It's so obvious.

    So the game isn't a pvp game - it is a pve game that will one day have a pvp side feature.

    So your protest actually is:

    'It isn't a B2W, and it never will be for PVE, but someday, they'll add PVP and so one day it will have a side pvp game which will be b2w, which you don't have to participate in. And that is evil.'

    That doesn't sound as dramatic somehow.

    Or maybe you can explain why you HAVE to participate in the future pvp?

    Absolutely no. I like depth in the games I buy and Blizzard is afraid of leaving the kiddy pool.

    A company is greedy for wanting to make profit? You're not forced to pay a dime outside of the $14.99 subscription and the virtual items add no real value other than cosmetics.

     

    Blizzard has yet to really disappoint and I will continue to purchase their A+++ games as usual. Haters gonna hate??

    What planet are you from?  Go to any game store, and tell me how many games on the shelf come from a company that wants to make a profit.  Yup, all of them.  Now, tell me how many of them feature item shops and real money auctions.  I will guarantee it's less than 1/10th of 1%.  Justifying item shops and real money auctions by "they just want to make a profit." Is like justifying Jeffrey Dahmer by saying "everybody needs a hobby."  Yeah, you just sidestepped the whole crux of the ethical debate.

    Yes, as long as it is a quality game that I believe I would enjoy.  So far that is most of Blizzards products.

    Sure, I've bought Torchlight II and Guildwars 2, both of which have mode old Bliz north talent working on the than d3 did.

    As for Activision/Blizzard they have demonstrated (to me at least) that whilst the spirit is willing the talent is week, I'll be more cautious in future

    At this point no I will never buy another Blizzard product they are dead to me I do not like the direction the company is going.  But to say you will never buy a game from a company is kind of closed minded.  Blizzard could get new management or current management could pull their heads out of their asses and put out something worth buying but I'm not holding my breathe.  This goes for Activision as well, I'm sick of them getting away with getting people to pay 60 dollars more then once a year for the same Call of Duty game.  They have not updated the engine and the graphics are pretty much all the same since the move from MW1 to MW2.
