    This kind of posts are very common in the forums but it defies all logic.

    If I don't like a Jazz album and my friend does, would I be right in calling my friend a 'brainwashed fanboy'?

    But keep on hating man, I'm sure someone will agree with you.

    Fun Fact: Diablo 3 sold 8.7 million copies + 1.3 million through the WoW 1 year pass = 10 million

    Honestly, first playtrough on normal was fun.

    Because of the story, videos etc. - I really enjoyed it.

    What the game turns out to be later on is the main

    elements' built for RMAH circulation?



    Thanks but no thanks!

    Diablo 3 is a mediocre game and Blizzard is losing its magic touch

    Another couple of releases like Diablo 3 and Blizzard too will end up like Bioware.

    I bought it, I played it but I wasn't overwhelmed by it, in fact very disappointed that they made zero improvement from Diablo 2.

    Very lazy design.

Again having negative expectation can affect your experience.   How about instead we use:   "I heard there is some book called The Hunger Games. It's a bout a teenage girl. I hate chick books. I read the first chapter and was bored to tears and threw the book into the trash."   vs   "I heard about a popular book called The Hunger Games. I picked it up and gave it a try. It ended up being so awesome! Now I'm reading the rest of the Trilogy!  Yeah!!"  

    Leaving out if my analogy works or not, I do agree that negative expectation affects experience.

    about your new example you need to add :

    "I heard about a popular book called The Hunger Games. I picked it up and gave it a try. After reading it I think it's the worst crap ever! Now I'm puzzled why so many people talk about it!"

    And many other versions as ofcourse it's no black and white case what people think, there are at least fifty shades of grey...


    My main point was just that you basically said "People who enjoy something like it"

    That's universally true and proves nothing in regard of the topic "Diablo 3 is the best since sliced bread".

    Because you can't forget the other side of the coin which says "People who don't enjoy something don't like it".



    Fair enough.


    My original argument was simply stating that the odds of liking something diminishes if you go in thinking of the negatives. 


    But there are times that someone can go in negative and come out thinking "Holy crap, boy was I wrong. This game is awesome. Why is everyone complaining???"


    So, now we have covered all the possibilities:

    1) negative = hate game;

     2) Positive = May like game;

    3) Positive = may hate game;

    4) Negative = may like the game.


    So I guess just trying to enjoy a game isn't enough. My idea that having a positive attitude might help you enjoy a game is completely wrong. Sorry for the misinformation. Nothing matters.

    I may try it in a year or two, but after playing the beta for a bit and seeing how they've basically went as far away from D2 as they could and still have "Diablo" on the manual somewhere leaves me with little hope for my ability to enjoy or tolerate it.


    I still have my Diablo 1 & 2 manuals and boxes after playing them for years. (Literally)

    yeah it rocks. I am still playing after 200+ hours. And 1.04 sounds very good. Many classes are buffed. The popular (but i hate) melee wiz build is nerfed. Other wiz abilities (which i like) are buffed.

    Legendaries are buffed. No more invulerable minions .. the list goes on and on.

    If by rocks you mean sinks in water then I agree.

    So, we're talking something on the rough order of a $0.25/hour?

    That IS amazing.  Minimum wage.  Before 1939.

    I had fun playing Diablo 3, but I found out quickly it didn't have the staying power that Diablo 2 did.  For me, this boiled down to one thing:  Lack of replayability due to the design decision to simplify character leveling / customization.  Diablo 2 was great for this, as it wasn't just different types of builds on the various characters that kept me playing, but that the item system allowed for character builds to be constructed with specific items in mind.


    Frankly, I am having more fun playing Titan Quest Gold (Game + Expansion) that I picked up on Steam for $5 when it was on sale.


    Now just waiting on Torchlight 2.

    You guys realize OP's post was the ultimate troll post.


    I might as well start a thread that days since justin bieber plays SW:TOR i now thinks it a fantastic game.

    Just think about what 800 hours of D3 would do to your mind.
