I am really excited to play Diablo III. To this day Diablo II remains one of my favorite games to play online even with all the spam bots and lag. It's amazing that after 10 years there are still quite a few people playing online. Another reason I am looking forward to the newest edition to the Diablo series is that it really has an interesting and exciting story line thus far and I can't wait to find out what happens next!
I think It is safe for me to say that the Diablo series is my personal favorite of blizzard's games. They have done a great job of adding new content and keeping things interesting and I hope they continue to do so with Diablo III. I would not be surprised to see some sort of expansion with new characters and quests like the Lord Of Distruction within the next couple years.
Diablo has one more thing that is really awesome. My dad likes to play it! I have been playing PC games since I was 5-6 years old and my dad showed me how to load them up from a Directory in MS-Dos. He would take me to computer trade show type things and would get me those 1000 shareware games on one CD deals. I can remember being introduced to awesome games like Commander Keen, Monster Bash, Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior and many more..
In addition to defending sanctuary from whatever with my dad, I am also excited that a lot of old friends who I used to play Diablo II with will be joining the battle. It will be good to reconnect and battle a long side them once again. Be warned foul demons and beasts of Diablo III I am coming for you!
