I considered playing Diablo 3, but I haven't played the Diablo games very much except for the original about 14 or so years ago when I was a kid. I recall it being a great deal of fun back then, but from what I hear the game has become a lot more simplified ever since.

^ Diablo 2 is awesome and I believe you should try it out at least once, despite its age.

Diablo 3 on the other hand is indeed oversimplified and feels more like an isometric hack 'n slash version of WoW. It's still fun, but nowhere as complex and deep as D2, in my opinion.

Torchlight 2 will probably be better than Diablo 3.

It's the hipster thing to put down D3. It's so mainstream now, WoW players will play it.

I was in the beta since December and felt like the game got better every time. I didn't want to like it since I have issue with the RMAH, but it was impossible for me to deny the game is quality.

I hope Arena Net takes their time because the game is far from ready. Bugs, and balancing issues were abundant, I hope they take their time, this beta was a hot mess.

I heard D3 is awful from reliable people who played the beta, still debating buying it because so many people I know are into it. IDK that AH w/real money annoys me too. Next there'll be official in-game gold-farmers

The GW2 beta? It had virtually no bugs for a MMO beta. How many have you played? The Norn story was the only one that needed attention w/bugs. The human and charr were just about ready for primetime.

That's exactly what I was thinking before I tried the GW2 beta. Now I can't wait for the release. I still plan on getting Diablo 3 but I would most likely wait for a price drop

GW2 will drop in price way before D3 will.. Check out the price of SC2

GW2 has it without the gold farmers, you can buy gems with real money and exchange the gems for in-game gold. You don't even have to find people who will trade the gold for gems because its already set up in the store/market place.

I never "got" the Diablo series or other dungeon crawlers like it. I thought I was clearly missing something since i never played those type of games.

Tried the Diablo 3 beta.

Nope, still do not get it. I can't clearly see what the appeal is and why people would spend so much time on this game. Gameplay is alright but I do not think it is that exciting. The randomly generated dungeons look nice, but its one hallway after the next, during the entire beta I never got excited about anything except some cool Witch Doctor spells that were very satisfying I guess.
