Three of the most popular and influential games of all time aren't good?

popularity and influence do not equal good quality anything. people, products, etc.

Blizzard lost the best dev team they had when they scrapped the original diablo 3 plans.

Diablo 3, released unfinished, no pvp, inferno was too difficult for barbs to play for months, Star Craft 2, released unfinished, tons of bugs, additionally, you cannot play the storyline of the other races without paying BOX price for the expansions of those races. (huge money scam)

Warcraft 3, starcraft, diablo 2, were the last quality titles blizzard produced. of course this is my opinion.

Having gone back and played some of the old games, I find a lot of what I liked about them is somewhat stepped in nostalgia. With the exception of Warcraft III, eternal damnation on those who decided to end the saga in favour of 100% of the story additions coming out in WoW. Boo hiss.

This will be the fifth title to come out that I'll have played along these lines... and tbh, I'm not seeing what is going to drive me to buy this when the alternatives seem more interesting and better from the moment I learned of them...

This game is also free to play, shit was confirmed a long time ago. I might try it out but MOBAs bore the *bleep* out of me and I don't see this dethroning League.

Although I don't think SC2 is/will ever be as good as Brood War, it's still far from being a bad game. Every RTS is released with bugs, that's what patches are for (that and balance changes). RTS have many more variables to consider than most games. You forgot to mention that each race's campaign in SC2 is about the same size as the entirety of the races in Vanilla SC.

There's no defending D3 though, that thing is trash.

I was playing star craft 2 when i posted that, i refuse to buy the expansions. at least not till they are more like 10$ or less. (especially if its a digitaly copy, which is mostly likely be the case.)

I wondered what happened to this. Wasn't this meant to come out with heart of the swarm? This game has been so long in coming now, that I had actually forgot about it.

It's been so long in coming that not only has it been done, it's been done well, better, improved upon, and to the level of popularity where multi-million dollar professional leagues rising to the level of SC2 has exploded onto the competitive gaming scene. Gotta love Blizzard when it comes to making concepts, but in this case I think they banged the drum, and are now hoping it'll beat out all the bitchin' guitar solos.

I agree with you Mishtram. I think they're a bit too late to the party with this one, and I don't think it will do anywhere near as well as it could have done if they had got their asses in gear to release it.

I feel i should mention, that i was a long time blizzard fan, from back in the old Interplay days, i have alot of respect for the company,

After investing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars into the company, and playing game after game, expansion after expansion, all the while thinking, my god cant they do better?

But i digress, all im saying is that they are not what i expect them to be. I wont spend another dime on anything they produce unless i see some changes.
