@KLRMNKYThis isn't directed at you specifically but: Why is EVERYONE saying a Diablo III? It -doesn't- appeal to the same crowd. Diablo has NEVER appealed to me. At all. Neither has Starcraft. I loved the Warcraft games and I love WoW, but I haven't and won't be playing Starcraft or Diablo. SW:Knights of the Old Republic was huge, Bioware has a huge fan following for their Mass Effect games and their Dragon Age games (and hell, I'd even take a second Jade Empire). I play other games in the same genres, but if it's a choice between a Bioware game and another game released at the same time, Bioware is always going to win for me. Bioware are -amazing- storytellers, which Blizzard used to be better at but they've really lost their way now. I'm going to note here, I hate Star Wars. I really actually do. I can't stand to watch the movies... even the original three. I don't like Star Wars. So when my friend made me try out SW:KOTR, I figured I'd hate it. I couldn't. The world -Bioware- created, the characters they created, the storylines....I loved the game, much to my shock. I found out several of my other friends who were never enthused about Star Wars equally loved it. You're not just looking at the Star War fanatic crowd, you're looking at the Bioware fan crowd too. Diablo III doesn't necessarily appeal to the same crowd. Some may fall into both circles, but there's always people that are only in one or the other.
