    They will be successful. They may not be good games, but they will surely profit Blizzard a few times more than what the game costed to develope.

    Diablo 3 will no doubt be a huge success. My predictions are not solid nor are they future telling, but I can almost assure you, the game will be a huge success. For every player who rants that the game sucks, thousands more stand by ready to purchase the game...

    Starcraft expansion Retribution and Insurrection was not made by Blizzard actually.

     

    Their financials are off the chart solid (well, Acti-blizzard is) and were trading at $11 last I checked.

    They aren't in my portfolio nor am I interested in them (yet) so I haven't done much analysis except some basic stuff. But the basics show some very good numbers so it is very unlikely their share prices will go down.

    If they do... well, at $7-8 a share they are an extremly good buy (which means it'll never happen :P )

    You forgot to Dune 1 and dune 2. Though I can see how you would skip Dune 2.. judging it was dune 1.. with cutscenes!.

    Dont feel bad.. I think we all are trying to forget Dune 1 and 2..

  • DAS1337DAS1337 Member UncommonPosts: 2,610

    I sure hope so, with all the money that they have.

     

    There's a few other companies that can run with them though.  Bioware being my favorite, mostly because of the Baldur's Gate  series.

     

    Though, I do have to say that since Diablo... they have made some pretty killer franchises.  Diablo, Starcraft, and Warcraft.  They've basically made gaming mainstream, and for that, they deserve your kudos.  Starcraft 2 was very polished and very good IMO.  Diablo 3 looks to be more of the same from the beta footage that I've watched so far.  I do expect Titan to be very good.  My guess is that they will have it near completion before WoW fades completely.  If you think about it, there were RTS games before SC and WC, but Blizzard really took the bull by the horns with both IP's.  There may have been some similar titles to Diablo, but they really coined the phrase,'Hack and Slash'.  Not to mention, their first MMO attempt has been the biggest MMO of all time to this date.  

     

    Yeah, I'd say they are pretty damn good.  You can't even deny it.  I don't think saying they are the most successful of all time is out of the question either.  The only thing really holding them back is a franchise that they can release every year like Dall of Duty.  I know they are with Activision, but they still lack a title in the FPS shooter genre.  I honestly haven't played CoD since MW1.  I thought that it took a drastic step in the wrong direction after World At War.  I play the BF series and I think they are far superior.

    The Dune series is under Westwood, not Blizzard.

    How, seriously, how is Dune 1 like Dune 2? 

    Dune 2 is pure RTS.

    Dune 1 is adventure/RTS-ish or whatever. Quite different.

     

    And wasn't Dune 1 made by Cryo and Dune 2 by Westwood? And both rocked for at the time they were released :)

    Dune 2 was epic, one of the few games I played back in the days that I actually really miss, together with Starcraft 2, civilization and colonization, wolfenstein, ah...the good ol' days!

    Diablo 3 will sell a lot yes, I am not as sure about Titan.

    Mighty game companies do have fallen before, not long ago companies like Microprose, Cinemaware, Psygnosis, Bullfrog and many more. And other companies used to make great games but nowadays mostly own others and themselves produces crap, like Activision and EA.

    Blizzard were really a rather small indie company originally that starting by porting Amiga games like battlechess to PC. It wasn't until 1997 when Diablo and Starcraft released that it became good. They have not made a game with a new IP since then which kinda reminds me of how most of the others on my list started to fall.

    Remaking Starcraft and Diablo will surely sell boxes but if Titan doesn't rock a lot they will eventually run out of gas, you can only make that many sequels.

    Blizzard have lost many of their most talented people to other companies, and I am far from certain that the 2010s will be as great for them as the 2000s was. Living on old merits only get you that far and most of the game companies don't last that long.

    Diablo 3 might sell well but what about Diablo 4 and Diablo 5?

    Ah yes you are right. Dune 2 and Dune 2000. Sorry my bad.

    Besides I think D3 was very close to being canceled a few years ago. I think blizzard is simply very lucky to have Rob Rado on board. His idea of the RMAH saved it.

    So D3 ( or should I say the macro economic game surrounding it) will be the next big thing in MMO land, but any other prediction is fanboy talk without substance.

     

    The next big thing in MMO land except it's in a Cooperative Online Action RPG, not an MMO.  But sure....okay.

    Think about it, Diablo 3 is merely the testing grounds, should the RMAH be successful there you can be sure that the next phase will be MMOs.

    Not that i mind, mind you, at least it's a more benign system than the usual nickle and dime cash shop. People always say that they want players to be in control of the economy, well here it is.

    I think it is the biggest mistake Blizzard ever made. For one thing will it really encourage all cybercriminals in the world to try to hack peoples accounts.

    If this becomes the next big thing it really is the final drop for me, the cash shops are bad enough but with this I will move back to pen and paper RPGs instead, no one tries to rip me off there.

    This will be the first Diablo game I wont buy, I will buy Torchlight 2 instead.

    The RMAH is definately a turn off for me but the change is art style is worse. I miss the dark gritty theme. So, I'm going for Path of Exile over D3 and T2.

    It might be a bad thing for you Loke, but i really don't think theft of accunts is gonna be much worse than it already is, you're bombarded with phishing emails, keyloggers and scams left and right if you ever so much as looked at WoW.

    In Blizzards (And by extension everyone else who offered a similar solution) defense, authenticators alleviated a lot of the account thefts, most you hear who had their accounts stolen nowadays hasn't set up an authenticator, there was a few, but most with authenticators are pretty safe. Common computer savvy aside.

    If you look at the trend they were trading between $10-$13 since their merger even with blockbuster sales and milestone subscribers. After a couple years I pulled out, it just wasn't worth it. This was one of those long term investments yeah to catch early on at the right time.

    I loved D2.   With what I've seen and read, I've little interest in D3.    Definitely some stupid design decisions there.

    Is this yet another WoW troll attempt? 

    The topic says "Blizzard = Epic"

    You shout more hate about wow... which was/is the biggest MMO ever released with largest player base.  WoW put MMORPG's on the global map and mainstream media.  WoW probably made Blizzard more EPIC as far as income/size/employees and product sales than anything they had ever released prior. 

    WTB Less worthless WoW hating more useful replies!
