So, to summarize, Diablo 3 has issues with connectivity, no option for lag-free gameplay, potential hackers in every public game, and removes even more control from the player than Diablo 2 did. Unfortunately, the game is simply too much fun to stop playing over even those annoyances. The gameplay is engaging and full of action, the bosses are much more interesting than their Diablo 2 counterparts, and the addition of the auction house makes it much easier to find the uber gear you need. It also looks and sounds amazing. Whether that translates to being worth $60 is up to you, but for the millions still playing, there's no doubt. Diablo 3 was worth it.
As I said before, Diablo III is a bit like meeting old friends. But over the last ten years, dungeon crawlers and RPGs have changed dramatically, and so how much you enjoy the charms of Diablo III will be ultimately dependent on how much you like its comparatively narrow focus, its simple story, streamlined upgrade system and its linear path. But even if you’ve outgrown certain elements of the Diablo series, Blizzard does a great job of reminding you why these games are fun.
