TY for no bm

I played starcraft, diablo 2, and warcraft 3 back in the day. Are the current crop of games any good?

Starcraft 2 looks like the same game with better graphics. the same drat units and everything.

Diablo 3 you have to buy all your items with real cash and blizzard takes a cut or something but still charges full price for the game? what the gently caress is that about?

In Warcraft you need to buy socks to poop in or something? Also I heard you earn bitcoin in World of Warcraft.

Ask me about the Lina meta 7 years ago.

Just avoid Diablo 3 and its expansion like the plague and you can still play all the good blizzard games.

If StarCraft 2 were the same game with better graphics then the answer would be yes.

The answer is no.

it does, and since it has no AH, loot drops like a real diablo game, like d2, instead of everything being poo poo and you having to rely on the AH

blizzard is a contard focused developer now

As argued above, of their modern stuff only Diablo 3 on consoles would earn a 'good' rating from me.

I dropped off a resume at a Blizzard booth at a job fair. I was quizzed on how passionate I was about Blizzard games

I was honest and told the nice lady that I haven't played any in the last 13 years or so, but I really enjoyed Rock & Roll Racing, The Lost Vikings, and Blackthorne back in the 90s.

She had no idea what I was talking about.

the correct response at all job fairs is to have a loving orgasm over the company and its products and literally have the enthusiasm of a coked-up five year old for the lovely, underpaying job they're offering

They used to, then activision bought them then their games started going drm protected and online only and you have to pay real money for in game poo poo so basically everything after wc3 is bad to ok while everything wc3 and before is pretty great. (Like the no lan / drm stuff in sc2 is said to have destroyed a lot of the professional ladders and servers and poo poo like that.)

They had to buy themselves back or something for some insane amount.

All this means is that PC gaming is experiencing growing pains. We're in the final death throws of everquest styled gameplay. People just don't tolerate that kind of bullshit anymore because MMOs are on their way out. But soon PC gaming shall emerge an even greater juggernaut than it was before.


Hell even the Borderlands 2 developers don't care that you cheat the drop rates because even they know the drop rates are bullshit.
