So we either get people like me, who are disappointed and can't bring themselves to enjoy the game for what it is - and then people like you who defend every thing about it whether it deserves defense or not. neither us are giving our full thoughts because we both are trying to prove a point: either it's good or bad. but just because you have chosen to like it overall, doesn't mean there aren't problems, and doesn't mean people aren't right in their assessment. the same works in reverse of course - just because i don't like it overall doesn't mean it didn't do things right.
I think you are missing how I defend the game, or the way I look at games. I'm not saying these people are wrong for having these opinions or that the game is infallible. I'm saying overall the game made me happy, and thats how I look at almost any game. Nothing is perfect, I can find faults in anygame out there. But I step back and ask myself, "is this fun?" If that answer is yes (even some horrible horrible games are fun) then thats just simply the answer.
I've had my complaints with the game, but with something like 170 hours into the game and I still find it fun, thats far more hours than I put into most games and still find them fun. I defend the game because it pisses me off when people with 100 hours say they aren't getting their moneys worth. Or say you need millions of gold to get anywhere in the game (I had a friend make it into Act II Inf before the nerf without ever using the AH on a Barb). But the reason I end up defending it so much is also because this is a thread I visit to talk to people who enjoy the game, and it's just so full of trolling about people being sick of this and sick of that, I actually stopped coming here. Thats the first post I have made here in like a week, and this might be the last ever. It's simple, if you don't like the game, don't ruin the clubhouse, it sucks you don't enjoy the game, but I got many games I bought and didn't like. Or many products beyond games I have bought and been disappointed with, thats life, you get burned sometimes, just got to keep moving on.
