Diablo is literally a real-time strategy. I think it is where the term "click-fest" originated.
I'm suprised not many complain about the persistant internet connection. Forget that. By buying Diablo 3 you make it more likely that future games will have this awful aspect! I say boycott this type of game, but I guess some people want to have their "click-fest."
You are going to screw it up for all of us!
Like I have always said, vote with your wallet because that is the only message that will get across. Personally, I don't care about the persistant internet connection so I bought the game anyway. I absolutely respect those of you who didn't buy the game and then complain about it. You did exactly what you should have done. The ones I laugh at are the ones who buy the game and then complain about the persistant internet connection. I say make an informed decision. If it's a deal breaker, then don't buy it. If you can live with it or don't care, then buy it.
As far as me buying the game and screwing it up for others, I don't feel that way at all. It's my hard earned cash I am spending, not yours.
I am still enjoying D3 and plan to keep enjoying it.
