Whenever I see someone repeat the newest gaming meme fad comment "Production Values", I ignore their opinion. Just ask Notch.

It's the single most glaring sign that the poster has no idea WTF real gamers care about - gameplay.

It's usually just a reference to the general polish level and quality of core game concepts like sound, map design and art assets. I've used the phrase a few times myself in since it saves alot of unnecessary typing. Mentioning the great gameplay redundancy is a worse sin, seems to follow every time someone is defending a problem in a game they like. As if people ever want bad gameplay. No reason gamers have to settle for anything less than great everything these days, subpar game elements are a failure of design, not gamers.

I've been keeping an eye on the patch notes for Diablo lately but I'm not seeing anything that will redeem it. They had the money and resources to do much better, I don't think I'll pick up an expansion for this unless theres alot of agreement on its quality.
