Because it's Blizzard, they will add some level of complexity to the system that keeps it interesting for the more sophisticated crowd, but at its most basic, it's just a clicky monster killing game.
That's what Diablo was. That's what Diablo 2 was. That's what Diablo 7 will be.
I think a lot of the naysayers ITT are bitching just to bitch. The color palette, the music, the animations and graphics. I mean, really? I understand that there is a "whole package" effect to D2 that makes it what it is.
But I equate those kinds of complaints to stuff like the anti-MBS and auto-mining crowd from SC2's early days. Claiming that such UI/game engine additions will kill the game. If you want to play Diablo 2, go play Diablo 2!
There are a LOT and I mean a LOT of people who prefer to play Civilization 4 over the 5th installment because of some design changes in the series.
D3 coming out isn't going to shut down the D2 servers.
