Already hating without even trying the actual game in a free beta form they are offering? Biased my ***"All one needs to play the highly anticipated game is a Battle.net account and plenty of free time."
You left out, "a fast computer with high-end GPU, a willingness to tolerate non-stop <i>real-world</i> product placement, acceptance of the absurdity of a <i>real money</i> auction house and a constant broadband connection..all for a primarily single-player <i>fantasy</i> game."
Although the game is even better than I expected, I just realized this is not the type of game I want to play. Maybe if instead of point and click, we could use a gamepad, I would have liked it a little more. I know diablo has always been like this, but that's just how I feel now. I must say that I was so addicted to Diablo II, I had to give away my copy in order to stop playing. And my favorite class, paladin, is not even in the third game. I knew it all along, but I can't deny it was kind of a let down.
