On Atmosphere: Diablo 3′s Failure to Get Me to Care

Diablo 3 has received much criticism for several reasons, from its writing to its gameplay systems. However, JK Thomas writes that its largest failing is a more fundamental and intangible one: it's failure of atmosphere. Because of the failure of atmosphere, there is no emotional connection to be made, no feelings associated with the game. (Culture, Diablo, Diablo 2, Diablo 2: Lord Of Destruction, Diablo III, PC)

Yeah, I agree. It's one of the games many failings. They tried so hard to steer people away from the association, but WoW's influence is pretty obvious...

Basically the game dropped all the gothic and dark fantasy tinges that made the original games so uniquely atmospheric.
