Thank you for this superbly written article. Your composition, punctuation, grammar and the like are extremely refreshing to see in an online article. I don't know if you care or not, but here's a couple errors in the article:

"indie developers could probably make a Diablo II better than Blizzard could if it wanted to"
-- Did you mean Diablo III?

"then you can expect another epic story in Diablo III which takes not so long after its predecessor."
-- Need to add the word "place"

"The bleak and depressing, though perhaps more dramatic in its execution."
-- uhhh what? lol

Nice job!!

great article, you touched on practically the entire debate..

heres the facts for me..i had a blast playing torchlight and i THINK i had more fun playing torchlight 1, than diablo 3's beta. There was somethign not quite right about the entire beta for me. It wasnt just the art direction, it was the layout, the pacing..Everything. However that could of just been because i didnt play enough of diablo 3's beta.. i have a feeling torchlight 2 is going to offer a faster pace and a more full on, satisfying experience.

Hahah, thanks for the corrections guys. A bit embarrassing... I wanted to get this one up ASAP!

@ Rueb, I meant Diablo 2. Point was modern Blizzard is so much different than when Diablo 2 was made. A lot of the attitude and production values that went into making Diablo 2 are probably better understood by an indie, rather than the huge studio that is modern Blizzard.

@ nyran Some friends of mine share that exact opinion. Diablo 3 is definitely going to have to win over gamers in a different way than they did with D2. They've literally created an atmosphere where they're competing with themselves.

i was trying to play torchlight 1 waiting for this game and it was horrible. Felt completely unpolished, this is where d3 will shine.!!!

Can't wait for this game. I already bought my gaming PC from Ironside Computers just for this game, and I can't wait to try it out.

"The Diablo III beta, and I've experienced this personally, is easy -- ridiculously easy, even. There are videos making the rounds of players wearing plain gear with "+Thorns"(damage reflection) and defeating the final boss in the beta without pressing a single button."
These people obviously haven't played in Hell.

the diablo 3 beta was in normal mode only of act 1 ofc its going to be easy, to base the game by saying Oh its not challenging when only playing the Normal mode of act 1. Next diablo is not a PvP game, saying that it should be delayed because of PvP not being ready is absurd. The game is based on PvM and balanced around PvM, you sound like a wow fanboy where a lot of new diablo 3 players have come from with this annual pass thing.
