Dave Payerle writes: Whenever I think of the Diablo series, I think about Diablo II. I was a fan of the first game, and the second came out when I had just lost both girlfriend and job, leaving me with loads of free time. I played multiple times with several characters on different difficulties, always on the search for better equipment and weapons. As the Diablo III launch approached, almost a decade after the Diablo II expansion, I wondered if older me, now with a wife, family and significantly less free time, would have the same attraction to the newest entry in the series. The short answer is yes; Diablo III is everything that Diablo II was, in a prettier, more dynamic, more accessible game. It’s not perfect, but it’s damn close.
