Accomplishing the same(or comparable) feat in D2 was far, far more enjoyable

This is a huge diversion in the thinking process. What was there in D2 that was "comparable" to the difficulty in Inferno? Playing Hell act 4 naked? It certainly wasn't killing cows...

There was an end game in D3, something so hard to do that there was really a reason to farm... something that has never existed in these top down hacknslash games before... and all people could complain about was that they didn't get "orange and green items" that were not necessary to complete that difficulty level anyway!

Now you are telling me that when you got to the end of the content (act 4 inferno) in D3 (just like the end of act4 hell in D2) you "don't see the point in continuing to farm" even though that is the EXACT point when people just began to pointlessly farm the cow level and Mephisto in D2. You didn't need to farm anything at all to complete the toughest challenge in D2. You didn't need to farm anything at all to completel the toughest challenge in torchlight 1 either...
