OP was clear, nice and un-biased. Or do you think that you see a film once/play a game once and that gives you enough to justify if it's bad or not? That's not always the case. I was hardcore D2 player, been a massive D3 fanboi and after clocking 80ish hours on D3, I'm dissapointed and sad. It's not what I thought it would be. But it's like what WillFeral said. Hardcore D3 fanbois won't hear a bad word against it.
In the past 2 weeks, I saw 14 friends on my list go from 100% Diablo to only 6 on Diablo. People are starting to realise it's not the game worthy of it's title. It didn't take 10 years to make this game, it's clearly been rushed in the past year or so. No doubt about that lol
To OP, you made perfect sense. A great comparison and I applaud you.
