I don't like Diablo 2. Now let me explain, I'm a 17 year old kid who has been playing games his whole life. I hadn't played a Diablo game till about 2 months before the release of Diablo 3. Everyone was talking about how fucking big it was going to be and how amazing Diablo 2 was and how its been so long blah blah blah. So I went on amazon found Diablo 2 and brought it.
Now i got the game I installed it picked my class (Druid) and I was off, and Wow did I have a shit time I had no idea what anything was, the game looked like shit, and yes I understand that it was 2000 and thats just what games looked like. What I don't understand are the people who say Diablo 3 doesn't look like Diablo. The game barely had a art style(Diablo 2) at least from my point of view. Also i would just look at the box for Diablo 3 and think this does say Diablo on it and it looks like this so this must be what Diablo looks like. They never really Explained anything, it was hard to compare loot, all the loot i got looked the same.Then I died lost it all and said well fuck it looks like I'm done here.
The Diablo 3 came out it was kind of a cluster fuck on day one i waited to get it till after Brad's review read it, he liked it so i thought i probably would got the game, and well sure as shit i did like it beat it the first time my girl looked completely different I felt so much more badass and i had gotten all the cool skills, and i thought about my time with Diablo 2 and said well shit i didn't feel any different after beating the first act or look any different.
Then I hit the forums and there just just shit tons of people talking mess about Diablo 3. How its a piece of shit nothing like the first game. I thought well i couldn't like and shit game and dislike a good one gave Diablo 2 another chance but still no luck.
I think it's probably a generational thing how everyone who loved Diablo 2 and say it just kind of has a certain feeling about it that Diablo 2 just can't capture. Well its the other way around for me.
