There's so much hype for this game I don't really quite understand it. I never player 1 & 2. All my other friends are planning to get it and feeling left out I may jump in as well.
Anyways what's the story? What's the gameplay like? Is it like Dragon Age: Origins? etc.

The deal with Diablo 3 is that both Diablo and Diablo 2 were great. They aren't like other RPGs, other RPGs hope to be like them.

I suggest you read some of the billions of written resources. Or watch some of the billions of video resources.

You'll end up getting it because your friends will convince you how awesome it is so I don't need to bother.

Then go play Diablo 1 & 2 for yourself?

Jesus Christ do you need people to wipe your ass for you too?

"The deal with Diablo 3 is that both Diablo and Diablo 2 were great. They aren't like other RPGs, other RPGs hope to be like them."

 

While I agree that D1 was good, even great back in the day on my PS, I must say that it is in no way the best RPG I've played.  Best Hack & Slash Action/Adventure though, but not RPG lol. :)

Correction: Best Hack & Slash Action/RPG, because that's what it is, it *is* an RPG! And within this subgenre it may as well be the best I've ever played. The best single player RPG would be the one in your avatar: Planescape Torment.

The original Diablo created the hack n slash genre, along with loot systems, it was the first game that really took the D&D concept and nailed it.
