I wish Blizzard could have given away copies of Diablo 2 with every purchase of Diablo 3 and not just the collector's edition. Maybe if they had done that some of these idiots claiming that D3 looks old would see the difference for themselves prior to making crazy-people claims on the Internet. The always on thing does suck for those that purchased the game and just want to play single player when the login servers are down. Where my empathy for them ends, however, is with the venomous outrage within seconds of the services being interrupted. It was out for a couple hours in the middle of the day yesterday, go outside, maybe pet a puppy. Delayed gratification measured in 60 minute chunks is not the end of the world. I've wanted to play D3 since I finished D2 (12 years ago?), so relax people. Give Blizzard at least a day or so to work the kinks out.
Quake was my first ever online game, but not being a big Quake fan Diablo II was the first one on PC I put a lot of time into online. I want to say Phantasy Star Online was my first online console game. I think PSO was before Twisted Metal Black (I beta'd it for Sony), but I'm too lazy to look it up at the moment.
