Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
Look at any average gamer’s school transcripts from a distance, and then ask them which title is responsible for a dip in their otherwise decent set of grades. That’s the game which showed them this genre of entertainment is worth more than just a few spare moments of boredom, and gave them their first real glimpse into the possibilities of being “addicted” to nothing more than a couple of pixels and some MIDI soundtracks.
In D3 though, this spirit never gets a chance to get off the ground, and while we all grinded Inferno at the equal cap of 60, something felt like it had been lost from the laugh riots which would ensue in Diablo 2. In the paragraphs below we’ll tackle several reasons why the magic is gone, and what Blizzard is going to have to do in order to get it back. (Diablo III, PC)
