D3 vs S2

#1 Posted by Destroyeron (352 posts) -

If both Diablo III and Starcraft II came out on the same day, and you could only have one for a year, which would you get?

#2 Posted by FateOfNever (1815 posts) -

They won't even come out remotely near each other.  That being said though, D3.  SC2 we already know will have two more missing parts to it, so from a story perspective, I wouldn't be missing out on anything from not playing it for a year, and then I'd just pick it up the following year with SC2 part 2.  Or, wait for SC2 part 3 to come out, and buy them all as a bundle of some kind.  Sure D3 wouldn't have the same kind of multiplayer fun that SC2 will have, but I can spend a whole heck of a lot of time on a Diablo game regardless.  The only thing I would regret is not being able to get the collector editions.

diablo 3 for me. i dont want to get my ass kicked in SC2

#4 Posted by jasondaplock (260 posts) -

Starcraft 2, though only by a slim margin. If the single player aspect of SC2 is anywhere near as good as its development cycle suggests, it'll be worth it to me over Diablo. If it isn't, I would regret choosing SC2.

Diablo III. I prefer both the setting and the style of game.

 

Nothing against Starcraft of course. Blizzard is awesome.

StarCraft 2 for me, i remember getting the original when it came out, and it has remained a firm favourite, so this will be an excellent nostalgia trip for me.

D3.

Diablo 3. I'm not really much of an RTS fan. I very much enjoyed Warcraft III and the Frozen Throne expansion though. That was because of the fantastic single player however. Truthfully I mind just end up waiting until all of the SP campaigns are available before picking up SC2.

Starcraft II.

D3; I love Starcraft, I'm just garbage at it.  Diablo as a franchise was the first series of games that I played non stop over multiple years.  I can't deny that appeal.

If all my buddies get Starcraft 2, I'l; get that.  If not, D2

#12 Posted by Arkkazeal (109 posts) -

Diablo 3 hands down. 
For me RPG > RTS  not to mention i put in way more time into D2 than SC1 online.

#13 Posted by nukesniper (1312 posts) -

Diablo 3. Starcraft 2 is more of a gamble for me as I need to find someone close to me in skill so I can get better at the game. The beta has been a bit brutal for me thus far.

#14 Posted by fallen_elite (380 posts) -

Diablo 3 easily. I would get my ass handed to me all day in SC2. 

#15 Posted by raiz265 (2234 posts) -

Impossible decision.
 
 
Luckily I don't have to make it.

Diablo 3. It's a much better jump-in-and-play game.

Why would any idiot have these two versus each other? Guess what, I'll buy both. Don't give me some stupid fucking situation for two completely different games made by the same company.

#18 Posted by potatomash3r (126 posts) -

As much as I love starcraft. Diablo 3, only because I have a ton of friends that played diablo 2 and we all vowed to get diablo 3 when it comes out.

Whoa! Calm yourself, it's only a hypothetical question. Get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? Oh, and, for me, it would have to be: 
 

Diablocraft 2.5

No, sorry. I just find it's a really stupid "what if" situation.

it is but that was very hostile 
anyways i would say starcraft 2
#26 Posted by DoctorWelch (2774 posts) -

I would def say Starcraft II because whether its Diablo or Torchlight or any other game like that, I never really feel like im doing anything. I just feel like I'm clicking and the game is basically playing itself. I guess I just dont understand the fun in it. Like yeah, loot and all, but loot for what reason, so you can click on more things and they die? It's just not for me I guess. Or there is something I'm just not getting.

#27 Posted by ThePaleKing (613 posts) -

Neither because Activision is satan. 

#28 Posted by xyzygy (9899 posts) -

I hate RTS and Diablo is the only good thing to ever come out of Blizzard, so D3.

#29 Posted by CallMeRotten (229 posts) -

Definitely Diablo. Starcraft is cool and all but I played Diablo a hell of a lot more than I did Starcraft.

#30 Posted by gamefreak9 (2345 posts) -

I like games that take skill not games that require grinding to get loot only to go get more loot. :P Sc2 for me, diablo is just an rpg, and doesn't have much attraction outside of the single-player for me. Amelioration in characters is addicting and wow shows this but at the end of the day i want to be able to be able to lose my disk and buy a new one and i'm still where i was before. Like chess :P.

" Amelioration "
 
NOOOO. You made me learn a new word. You made me LEARN.
 
I'll never forgive you.
 
Also: Diablo 3, baby.

Diablo 3 
hands down
#33 Posted by dragonguyx (34 posts) -

SC2 has a lot of re-playability via ladder/custom maps, but come on who can turn down LOOT. LOOT. NEED MY LOOT. So yeah, Diablo 3 :)

What if situations are always stupid in some way. You just gotta deal with it or don't answer. 
 
I'd go Diablo 3 because Torchlight made me want to play the series that does it best.

I did too, why even click on the thread if he thought it was stupid? If you look at his recent posts though you can see hes a troll just BURSTING with positive energy! I feel sorry for him, he prolly works as a janitor in a warehouse in antartica under the evil reign of a billionaire paying them below minimum wage or something.

there should be a 3rd choice to not get either and then  get both in 6 months
