Should Diablo III be a rhythm-puzzle game?

Should Diablo III be a rhythm-puzzle game? photo



I've not played the Diablo III beta, but I have seen screenshots on IGN which I usually steal to crop their logo out and then use as header images. Still, I can't help but feel that the game would have been much better as a rhythm-puzzle game.

From what I've seen, Diablo III is an isometric, dungeon-crawling roleplaying game, and I don't like those, so I decided I want the game to be something that I do like instead. I enjoy rhythm-puzzle games, and I think that would make it fun. Also, the graphics are too dark and don't have enough colors in them. I'd like them to be cel-shaded, and also the game should star Link from The Zelda Windwaker

I'm not too fond of this idea that Diablo III is going to charge a monthly subscription, which is why the change of genre would also be beneficial. That said, I wouldn't mind it going the free-to-play model. Perhaps each Diablo character could have some sort of garden and they can buy things for the garden. They can put up fences, plant flowers -- maybe even buy a few ducks and cows to produce things they can sell for in-game gold, and they could even share stuff with other players. 

What do you think? Sound good? If so, I also have this idea about having players fire giant catapults with enraged bats in them to knock skeletons over!

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
