Op Ed

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Why The Problem With Diablo Isn’t Diablo.
We have to demand a standard of quality and dedication from these things. If we try to paint complaints about Diablo III’s loudly reverberating server-side-down bellyflop as entirely immature, wrong, and entitled, we’re basically saying, “Look, everyone else! We’re totally OK with this.” I mean, Diablo III’s almost assuredly sold millions of units by this point. If widespread rage then proves relatively short-lived, I have to imagine that looks like pretty much all upside to, say, Tim Willits or even devs/pubs whose intentions aren’t quite so benevolent or design-focused. Piggy banks are happy, and customers are happy. What more do you need?

Hey, again, it's fine. If people want to play Diablo 3 and eat the shit sandwich, it's no shirt off my back. But don't complain three years down the road when a large number of games has this kind of bullshit attached to it. Because you (not you personally, just the people who put up with it) are the ones who enabled the industry to go that way by buying all the shiny things wrapped in shit.

you say that like it actually means something... of course these idiots enabled the completely fucked bullshit system that is in place and continues to fester, but that doesnt mean shit.. they are going to keep bitching about it at the same time

you might think its mutually exclusive but you are either unaware of or seriously underestimating the potential for hypocrisy that people display on a regular basis, about pretty much everything.. not just gaming

they will bitch and "honestly" not fucking "get it" that they are the cause in the first place, they will keep reacting and reacting and reacting to the automatic impulses that control their entire lives, robotically

Well, I was trying to be circumvent about the accusation of hypocrisy, but yes, that is exactly what it is.

And sadly, I have to agree that the large majority really doesn't get that they're the ones causing this bullshit. If even RPS, who normally have really grounded guys, say "Well, it doesn't really matter for Diablo, but MAKE SURE TO STAY ANGRY FOR THE NEXT GAME!" then all you can do is shake your head and watch the game industry turn into the biggest always-online shitfest ever witnessed.
