"And I haven't gotten to the technical side of this travesty yet. Early adopters (and reviewers) hit the servers so hard that they coughed up "Error 37" to point where it became its own Internet meme. Even if you were just going solo, Error 37 killed your fun before you even before you got going. I've complained about the lack of wisdom in forcing a constant Internet connection for a single player game, and Diablo III's launch proved every one of those arguments had merit. Worse, it actually generated new arguments."
