You guys ever see a sequel as big as D3 flop as hard?

Except it's not a "flop". Diablo 3 went on to be one of the fastest selling PC games of all time... It doesn't matter if nobody plays it after the fact. Blizzard still has your money.


Refunds and a lot of sales coming from WoW annual pass?


are a fraction of d3 sales....

Agreed. Financially successful but the damage to the brand will most likely cause some issues in the future. Online only and server issues isn't something that goes over well. Rampant "hacking", simplified gameplay (how was that even possible!?), and the emphasis on buying power really hurts their image.

how is selling over 6 million copies a flop

Just because something sells a lot, doesn't mean its a quality product that deserves awards.

Take a look at Modern Warfare 3

or Avatar 3D

or the iPad.

Which has nothing at all to do with the gross misuse of the word "flop". Notwithstanding the iPad was a stellar product and Avatar 3D had some of the best use of the admittedly gimmicky as hell technology yet to see theaters.

As for BF3, most of the "real" fans I know are having a blast enjoying the game for what it is. Some people evidently wanted a rehash of BF2 with shinier graphics, and they'd probably still be whining about what "true" fans would or wouldn't accept even if they'd gotten precisely that. Sounds a lot like the D3 fanboys cluttering the official forums with their wharrgarbl now that you mention it. Maybe they could all get together and **** off to their respective version 2's and make *everyone* a lot happier.
