Goddamn... I started another UFO: Enemy Unknown game... here's hoping I won't lose interest again after couple of days. It's been ages since I last finished that game.

At least it will probably prod me to continue my Starcraft 2 project.

Unlocking this (yaaay, mod power "abuse") just to say that after finally getting a computer upgrade I got a chance to play some Diablo 3. And in my opinion, despite all the whining, hatred and huge amount of D2 nostalgia goggles running in the so-called "diablo community" the game is pretty enjoyable. So that's that, now use this thread to breathe some life back into the forums maybe?

Yay, life!

Currently going through Baldur's Gate/Tales of the Sword Coast again, hoping this time Durlag's Tower doesn't bug out on me :S

Civilization 5. Extremely addictive - don't try this at home.

Sweet!  Now you can try Torchlight II and tell us what you think between the Old Blizzard Team vs New Blizzard Team!

Meanwhile, I'm kinda doing a toss up between Halo, SoTS: The Pit, BL2 and convincing myself to work on DoomRL's next sneak peek.

Already did. T2 still suffers from the same glass canon syndrome that T1 did, and in fact it appears sooner. So no thanks, I'll pass.

There's a bunch of mods for T2 that totally rebalance the game and may improve your enjoyment of it; I've been playing Synergies most recently.  That, at least, is a feature Diablo 3 cannot offer.

Titan Quest was by far my favorite of the Diablo-type games. I enjoyed it more than Diablo.
Thus, I am eagerly awaiting Grim Dawn - the TQ dev. team's very successful KS from last year.

I used to really enjoy titan quest!
I hated diablo 3 though... I've heard it's a lot better since they closed down the auction house, but for diablo games I've always been a fan of ironman diablo 1! Diablo 1 just had such a lonely atmosphere, and my heart identifies with haunting loneliness a lot more than it does with perilous dread!



As for me, I've been absolutely hammering starcraft 2 recently! Back-to-back games for hours on end!
In between those, though, I've been putting a few hours into FTL (now that there's a hard more in the advanced edition), Don't starve, ADOM, and hearthstone.
It feels very good to have kicked my League of Legends addiction once and for all! x

I came to Diablo 3 after RMAH closed so can't comment on how it affected the game myself but a friend of mine that had the game from when it came out said it was, indeed a great improvement. And then patch 2.0 and expansion applied more improvements to go with that - the game is fine...

...the so-called community? Less so. In fact I'd say the official US Diablo 3 forums are downright caustic, with amounts of whine and rage aimed at Blizzard drowning out most of the actually constructive criticism. My (least) favourite topics that come back on and on are variations of "I played for 2000+ hours and I'm bored. Only 2000 hours for $80 game? What a disgrace, the game is crap" and "Blizzard should remake Diablo 2 with new graphics - it'd be next to no effort and would earn them millions!" (suuuuuuure it would). Ugh. I'm not sure why I browse those forums still, must be some form of masochism.

On more positive note I must agree that Diablo 1 is a great game that aged pretty well (*coughunlikediablotwocough*). In fact few months ago I re-played it with help of a mod allowing for windowed play in modern systems (finally!) and a fanmade patch for some of the outstanding bugs and had good time.

Aside from that I decided to dig out Fallout New Vegas... again... and after showing 50+ mods/compatibility patches down it's throat I think it's ready to play \o/

Well the more focus on the gameplay a game is, the greater its effective life it seems.  See also old-school games like chess.  Basic hack-and-slash will never die out -- their interface just keeps morphing to whatever the dominant form is.  But the core idea of a grid-based world stays more or less consistent.

Same reason why rogue-likes are still in existence and are having some kind of a come back these days.

I whole-heartedly agree with this:

Diablo 1 just had such a lonely atmosphere, and my heart identifies with haunting loneliness a lot more than it does with perilous dread!
As for me, I just started up The Lost Vikings and have been marathoning it the last few nights. I feel like it would have been easy as a small child, but my boring adult brain struggles with such puzzly goodness.
As for what I've been playing: Magic, the Gathering, A hone-brew RPG system we call Project Eggo, and, of course, DoomRL, my favorite Roguelike. ;)
