Giving Diablo 3 a shot

I actually played Diablo 3 for about an hour last night.

This is both a big deal and no big deal, from different perspectives.

Its a big deal because I am not a gamer, in the traditional sense.  I don’t play lots of games.  I don’t have time.  I play WoW, and that’s the only video game I have played with any regularity for the past 6 years.  For any game to convince me to try it is a big step.

However, its not a big deal because I didn’t pay for D3.  I got the WoW annual pass, so D3 came with the package.  Therefore, there is no investment involved in playing D3.  No risk.

On the other hand, its somewhat notable because I hated Diablo 2.  Way back in the late 1990s I had played the original Diablo, and I got Diablo 2 the first week it was out in 2000.  I played it for an hour, and that’s all it took to convince me to uninstall it.  I really thought I was done with the whole franchise.

After an hour with D3, its got me involved enough that I plan to play it more.  I have no intention of going all hardcore on it.  I don’t intend to make millions on their real money auction house.  I’m not going to fly through the storyline.  However, based on my first impression it has earned a share of my leisure time.

    Would you have a guest pass to spare by chance ?

    Since all (raiders) of my guildies are playing in D3 and we don’t raid DS anymore. I guess i’ll stick with the new game until MoP is released.
