Now that Diablo 3 has been out a little while I wanted to post a few thoughts I have about the game after beating it a few times. First off, its great and if you can get it I recommend you do as it did not disappoint. That said I did figure I would be playing it much longer than I did. I can't pen why I thought Diablo 3 would be all the game I needed for the rest of the year, but I did. I figured the replayability would be so high that I wouldn't put it down for 6 months. Thing is, that was me for a few weeks but after that my play time waned and I don't play it all too often anymore. I imagine ill poke around in it and occasionally put in more time but it started and stopped like any other game ive played. I may have played it less than Borderlands come to think of it.

Recently Blizzards President took to the forums to address a few issues, some I had some I didn't. Interesting read for sure:

All that to say, Diablo 3 was a great game, I beat it and I am a bit disappointed because I thought I would play it more than I did. In the end, playing it again a little bit harder than before wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be.

I never got disappointed with it until I stopped playing it for the Steam sale. Now, I can't really imagine wanting to play it. Diablo 2 was definitely a pick-up and put-down game, though. I imagine I'll be back to Sanctuary many times until D4 is released.

I think I was starting to get weary of it when I started my second character class. Good game, I just Imagine I'll play Skyrim more. Maybe even Terraria.

I agree, once I started working through Hell mode (and I upgraded the craftsmen until I couldn't as there is yet another resource for them that is blocking until Inferno mode -- which happened before I got to the skeleton king... same as happened in nightmare mode), it just started to feel like work and not "fun" so I played less. Now it just doesn't seem fun enough to pick back up.

Maybe I'll feel differently after a few patches, or a few months have gone by.

I agree. I am going to keep checking it out and playing it here and there over time.

Just started back up after getting back from vacation. I'm playing exclusively HardCore right now, and it's pretty fun.

Interesting. Haven't played a Hardcore character yet.

The lag monster (okay, I probably would have died even without the lag) killed a level 37 two days ago. I mourned for about 3 hours and then rolled a new Demon Hunter.
