I loved rolling a barbarian. I tried the other classes but I wouldn't go past the first act, usually the 5th quest was my max with either the necromancer or sorcerer. Regardless, it never got boring to just hack away at enemies, use different spells and explore every inch of every dungeon bit by bit. Searching for items and finding rare items was such a draw. I was always overjoyed whenever I found an unidentified or set item.
It had a strong appeal to me and I enjoyed every minute of it. Anyways, Diablo III is released and I'm really excited to continue the story and play the game. The major problem I'm experiencing right now is getting disconnected. There were server issues on the first day which is understandable but I get removed from the game now every 30 minutes to an hour which doesn't make sense since my internet connection is perfectly fine.
Having played through most of the first act, I'm finding that I don't enjoy the game as much as I used to. I did when I first started it but it almost feels like work to play now lol. I'm not exactly sure what is causing this though :/ While its a good idea that items are smaller so you can carry more, a rare items looks the same as a normal item which might not appeal as much to me? It could be due to the colors which are bright at times compared to the dark colors of Diablo II and that takes away from atmosphere? Maybe the story doesn't draw me in as much because the three prime evils were defeated in the last one?
Honestly, I'm completely lost as to why this is. I've been playing SCII since release(breaks here and there for school) and I still can play for 2-3 hours at a time yet I can't play Diablo III for that long without either getting kicked out from the server or getting really bored. It just lost its appeal I guess or maybe I'm just getting too old for games now since SCII is the only game that I play now. Curious if any other Diablo fans out there experienced the same thing or if it's just me?
Thanks for reading
