I'm a little freaked out by radiation stuff too. The sun's only different for me because it's what gives our planet life. We can't live without it, so I accept its radiation. Any time I can avoid it though, I try to.

Hmm. idk, seems about right. Not particularly fond of any of them though.

" @JJWeatherman:  I pretty much know what Diablo 3 will be - disappointing RPG targeted at the mainstream gamers so it can sell boat loads of copies. I don't think there is a person who tracks the franchise, or RPGs in general, and thinks Diablo 3 will have a good story and characters. It will be "just plain fun". Blizzard's games are made to sell copies to the maintream audience and not to tell great stories or move the genre forward. Just like Starcraft 2 Diablo 3 will bring virtually nothing to the RPG genre. "
OK, you're practically trolling now. 
 
As I mentioned before--which should be completely and utterly obvious--is that Diablo is NOT a "classic" RPG series. It's an Action-RPG. I guess if you don't like Action-RPGs, then you wouldn't like it, but don't try to pass it off as a bad game, or a bad series in general. 
 
Alright, I'm done here.

Really? Read one of these. They probably explain it better than I could. 
 
Some of the best parts for me, though: 
  • Battle.net - pretty much everything about it is awesome, and it's free!
  • The bosses - all unique and look awesome. Fighting them eventually becomes very easy, but it's always rewarding to kill them none the less.
  • LOOT!! - Loot Or Other Things. Nuff Said.
  • Customization - skill trees and stat points give you a shit ton of customization possibilities.
  • MORE! - read one of those reviews.

I have played the game(twice in past 4 years), I don't need to read the reviews. Diablo 2 is not an RPG. The quests are basically go fetch some items while killing armies of easy enemies. It's really easy and gets boring really fast. LOOT? Yeah, that's cool but since the game is so easy why do I need better items? The game becomes even more easy. 
So let's sum up... boring fetch quests, boring gameplay, super easy, tedious and boring second boss fight, little and uninspired dialog, unmemorable characters, etc. etc. It came out in 2000 so what? Baldur's Gate 2 came out the same year, now that's an RPG. 

 P.S. - I played Diablo 2 again because I'd forgotten everything about it and after playing it I know why. "
Maybe you should read some of those reviews anyways. You asked what was so good about the game earlier, and those will tell you in detail. If you do feel like you've seen all there is to see though, and you don't like it, then you should know that you're in the EXTREME minority. The game's not supposed to be a deep and classic style RPG. It's really not fair to compare totally separate games, and expect one to be like the other. Diablo 2's a hell of a lot of fun.  
 
Maybe--when it comes out--you should try to go into Diablo 3 without expectations. I'm sure it'll be great, if you allow it to be.

" I got some collectors edition music albums, my mp3 player and even a videogame stolen by a good friend.
I figured it out, wanted to get him back for it, because I carry a lot of hate for these kinda things.
 
Not going into much detail but I invited him over and he left with a few wounds and a bruised body.
I even got picked up by the cops the next day but it was bloody worth it.
He still goes out of his way when he sees me on the street.
Don't steal my shit, especially not after 7 years of friendship.
 
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned eh? "
Holy crap. Remind me never to cross you.

I never expected it to be cancelled, but I did expect it to suck. Live has been shit for years, a name change wasn't going to change that. I played the demo; it felt like Live, but with pass mapped to the right trigger.

I say go with Forza. Ir has a ton of assists, so I think it would be perfectly playable for him. I remember liking GT and this other racing game I had on Genesis back in the day. Depends on the person of course, but I think most people would like Forza.
