You see, thats a problem for me. Because I grew up with Diablo 2. I think I still have more hours in it than borderlands 2 by a long, longshot. Maybe as much time as I had in WoW in between the two. It was my game. And a big part of that was that the lore was really ■■■■■■■ good. Introducing the other two prime evils was great, and watching the wanderer’s trek was awesome. And then when that was done…
… the act five cinematics. I still get shivers.
“Your proposal… is acceptable…”
And then… deckard cain gets punted by a d list character. Couldn’t even have diablo, mephisto, baal or leoric do it. It had to be some random butterfly bitch. Tyreal cuts his wings off for no reason and then gets made the angel of wisdom for being the dumbest son of a bitch on the face of sanctuary. They throw in all this nephalem nonsense for no ■■■■■■■ reason…
I could still bitch about this for days, really.
As to the gear grind…
Well, I would say that the two characters probably have a combined 120-160 hours in them, not counting the at launch stuff I did for my witch doctor. Aaaaand I’m already done.
I have no desire to go back and play anymore, because they have the best sets that I think I can give them.
