I still haven't decided which game was the one I enjoyed the most this year. No sir, but I have no doubts in my mind as to which one I enjoyed the least. And that game would be Diablo 3.
I have been waiting for this game since it announced first. Impatiently waiting. My excitement for more Diablo exponentially increased with every minuscule tidbit of information released. Every time Blizzard announced a new class I would say"I am DEFINITELY playing this class first" I admit, I set unrealistically high expectations for Diablo 3. And it far exceeded these expectations.
It was released, and of course I bought it day one. Played it a lot. A LOT. All day, most of the night, and with friends too. And I loved it.
By now you`re thinking `well what the hell, you said it was the worst game for you!' It is, and here's why.
The god damn auction house bullshit; the economy of the game in general. I spent HOURS just on the auction house, looking for better items and selling my old ones. At first I didn't mind, but then I found out one of the mods over at Blizz forums admitted that Blizzard rigged the game so that you'd get less impressive loot, to move the economy of the AH. More and more, and with the difficulty levels rising, I found myself not actually slaying the minions of Hell, but slaying my time clicking around the AH. And I hated it. I hated it because I HAD to use the AH, or I wouldnt be able to progress. And that pissed me off to no end.
And then came the account freeze.
I woke up one day, after a while of not playing and decided to play some Diablo. I tried logging in, and I had forgotten my password. I asked that the code be texted to my phone. BUT, oh what's this? I had changed my number! So I attempted to change my number on my account, but of course, to verify, they'd text my old number. What in the actual Hell are Blizz thinking? I eventually remembered it, but at this point I shut off the game, and I havent turned it on since. This was back in August, and I dont know if things have changed.
Frankly, I dont care.
