Soda isn't water yet they are both liquids You know what my biggest gripe about Diablo3 is so far? It's potential players who have the most obscure, irrelevant gripes about it and feel the need to post that they're not going to play it unless the game turns into a FMV of Survivorman with a Tetris overlay. I'm sick to my stomach over the fact every other thread on this goddam forum has some sort of ****ty analogy as to why D3 is going to be bad for a nonsensical reason. The game looks like WoW! The inventory management system is too easy! I don't like the fact the only source of health/mana is potions anymore, I refuse to play the game for this reason alone! Some attributes might automatically be delegated for me; this game is a fascist piece of ****! Why are you even registering and posting if this is seriously the case? Go shine your shoes and then complain to Kiki shoe polish and ***** about how they made it too easy by creating brush with an auto-distributing polish mechanism. World of Warcraft has a user interface and is a game made by Blizzard. So does every other videogame created dating back to Rock and Roll Racing. Is Rock and Roll Racing any worse of a game because they share this feature? You may or may not like or appreciate WoW for x reason, but the game isn't extremely successful because it was designed by a bunch of beef-witted Klingons. It has some great components, like an auction house system which make it so I don't have to use an EZboard forum like j2dsp and use "forum gold" currency to do trading and ensure I don't get scammed by some ***. If you don't like D3 so far because of the art style, fine, you're entitled to your opinions regardless of how paltry they are. Just don't throw them around and source WoW as your reason. Do us a favor and keep them to yourself. Look at the reasons you played Diablo2 and I'm sure the majority of them can still be found within Diablo3. Half of you would like to see D2 with an updated graphics engine and then would completely whine about how unoriginal Blizzard is. Stacking items in a grid is not a gameplay mechanic. The game is far less colorful and fruity than Diablo2 was. Diablo2 had automatically allocated stats. Having an auction system is not a bad idea. Posting ****ty reasons why you won't play Diablo3 is a bad idea.
