Haven't played Diablo 3, but I remember thinking Diablo 2 was a step down from from Diablo in terms of atmosphere. Maybe the gameplay was better. I don't know. I was too busy breaking my mouse to pieces in Diablo to take the time and figure out if I was actually having fun or not.
Anyway, I really got no respect for someone who reacts that way to criticism, no matter if it was meant to be a public statement or not. At the same time, it isn't my business one way or the other. Blizzard is not the company it once was. The days of Warcraft 2 and Starcraft are long gone. But they still do some decent work.
