I have never played a Diablo game though I was certainly aware of it. I just approached Torchlight as its own thing and I enjoyed it a lot. There must be something wrong with me as well.

Nope. However if you don't mind dated graphics, you really need to invest in the diablo battlechest. D2 plus LoD took several years of my life, and is still crazy fun.

This?

Diablo Battlechest [New Version]

I just might do that provided there are no issues running it on Win7.

I bought the original one and it wouldn't run on my Intel Mac, so now it's just a nice heavy paperweight.

Diablo 2 was single player? I was always under the impression it was online only. Might be worth a grab.

I think if you like a genre, then there's nothing at all weird about getting the best examples of that genre even when they are "competing" in some regard.

I mean, especially since Diablo 3 isn't a game that people are going to put thousands of hours into over the course of a decade, like its predecessor was (which is not to say that Diablo 3 is bad, or a failure, it just isn't Diablo 2.)

It was single player, supports lan play, and you can log into battlenet to play online.

@Jason: No issues that I've heard playing on 7. The original D has issues, but they haven't bundled that with the chest in a good while.

Supports Win7, im sold! :)

I was joking, of course.

But honestly, the $20 price point of TL2 is a huge selling point for me. I can get a copy for me and my wife for a total of $40, which is still cheaper than what I paid for D3.

I'm quite sure that some people will continue to play D3 for many years to come.

And $5 during the Steam holiday sale...

Some people will continue to play D3 for years to come, but I don't think as many will as did D2, unless Blizzard really changes the mechanics of the reward treadmill.

I'm thinking I might get TL2 at launch.

IF THEY EVER LAUNCH IT!

Yeah. Random affixes on class-specific items. Absolutely absurd.

Another point that TL2 will have over D3 is the ability to mod.

DVvM says:
Well, there's also the issue of it being too easy to hit the level cap in D3 and that the items within epsilon of being most desirable are randomly generated instead of static (since most of the most desirable items in D2 were uniques or runeword items). There were, in some cases, rares in D2 that were the best in class, but since affixes were randomly generated, you would never be able to count on finding them or being able to trade for them, and there was always a unique or runeword item that would be close enough to "best" that you could actually hope to find.

It is pretty easy to hit the cap, but beating Diablo, or even the first couple acts, on Inferno is certainly not.

Would Inferno be easy with this?

Well, the difference is that while beating Hell Baal in D2:LoD was not especially challenging, you will do so before you hit level 99 (since hitting level 99 was virtually impossible). So continuing to play after you've "beaten the game" still advances your character both in terms of loot and in terms of material goods. Not that your post hell-baal D2 character needs a lot of stuff, but a lot of the joy of farming loot in that position was finding other things that would inspire you to make a new character in a different class and twink that character out with that gear.

D3 eliminates both of these hooks, in that the level cap is easy to reach, and that there's really no reason to keep playing after you've beaten Inferno, since your character won't advance, and there's no need to farm gear for a new character both because you can just buy that stuff in the Auction House, and because you only ever need to create one character of each class since respeccing is so painless (whereas in D2 I had multiple characters of most classes, built to emphasize different things.)

Hell Baal is where Diablo 2 ended if you played Single player, there was little point to playing anymore after that. It was also really freaking easy to do before they buffed it up in a later patch

Diablo 3 Inferno is much more akin to Diablo 2 Uber Tristram which didn't exist until patch 1.11 late 2005 (four years after LoD released)

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 1, 2012 1:38:35 PM PDT
No.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 1, 2012 1:43:38 PM PDT
See, I like being able to respec a character on the fly, so that's actually a good thing for me. And I don't see how the endgame farming is fundamentally different in D3. It's rare that you will get anything better than what you have, which is exactly how the endgame of all of these ARPGs and MMOs is. That said, some people REALLY like that farming for a small chance of getting better gear.
