Who would give a shit about D3 in 5, 10 years anyway?

The same type of people that still play Diablo 2, 12 years after its release date.

interesting theory, here's mine:
I've played both D1 and D2 but couldn't care less about D3 due to its horrible DRM. In fact, in 5 years when all the hype about D3 (and maybe Blizzard, who knows?) is long gone I might still play D1/2 on a vintage Win98 machine. Besides, people grow up; even those who are still playing D1/2 today might lose interest tomorrow. Oh, and then there is Jerykk's opinion, which I totally agree with:

Diablo 3 isn't a pioneer in anything. It's the third in a series of polished, if unremarkable, hack 'n slash action RPGs. One could argue that Diablo 1 was historically significant but Diablo 3? I guess people could argue that Diablo 3 marks the first proof that customers are willing to overlook any kind of DRM as long as the game is part of the right brand.
