I'm kind of surprised now looking back on FPS how much happened from 1996-1999. People (myself included) like to hate on how there's a new CoD every year and I guess I'm just forgetting how the Quake series happened:
Quake Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon (1997)
Quake Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity (1997)
Quake II (1997)
Quake II Mission Pack: The Reckoning (1998)
Quake II Mission Pack: Ground Zero (1998)
Quake III Arena (1999)
Quake III: Team Arena (2000)
When I was playing HL, CS and Q3 I felt like Quake was ancient but it was only about 3 years earlier.
That's not to say that CoD still isn't over saturated and uninnovative:
Call of Duty (2003)
Call of Duty 2 (2005)
Call of Duty 3 (2006)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007)
Call of Duty: World at War (2008)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009)
Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2011)
Call of Duty: Black Ops II (2012)
(without expansions/DLC and console/mobile)

The only people who use IE are the ones tho don't know about alternatives...
The only people that say that are idiots who think it's still "a few moons ago." Live in the now, man. Things change. Good things get bad. Bad things get good.
IE9 is consistently rated as good as the others. It's lacking only one thing for me: spell check. That keeps me in FireFox usually, but I find IE9 faster (almost as fast as Chrome.) I think FireFox has gotten kind of bad, but dislike Chrome because, quite honestly, Google knows enough about me.

The game that supposedly gets more fun and gives you longevity after you "replay the same game" on different difficulties, and of course the difficulties must be unlocked.
Fun and longevity increases from replaying the same game, what an amazing concept these Blizzardians think of and spread to us meager gamers.
(Blizzards comments are always in Blue)

This is staggering, especially how much Blizz hyped up Diablo 3's PVP and how esports friendly it supposedly was.

So there's no offline singleplayer because it's a multiplayer game, but we're going to ship it without a fundamental multiplayer element. Alrighty then...

I think they are under pressure to get it out this year to appease all the WoW gamers who renewed for a year after falling for the carrot dangling ploy.

Diablo 3 looks like shit more and more every day though. It's like an inferior version of Torchlight.

If people don't like what Blizzard is doing with Diablo 3, why not set your sights on another game? Torchlight 2 is around the corner, and I think Grim Dawn is targeted for this year as well.
That's what many people will likely do. It's a crowded market, I would have loved to play Diablo 3 but I'll just put my money somewhere else. If it's just business for Blizzard then it's just business for me too.
