All you do is mash your left and right mouse button and occasionally change your right button to a different skill. The inventory system is terrible and time consuming. You have to mash your way through areas that you have mashed your way through time and time again... Meh.. Torchlight is 10x more fun than D2... I'll probably still pick up D3 though.. Blizzard can do no wrong, with he exception being WoW.
I don't get your reasoning here. Skyrim is my 2nd most anticipated game behind D3 but for completely different reasons.
I've also tried to get back into d2 within the past few years and could not, but that doesn't make it a bad game its just dated compared to whats out there now, but to compare that experience with what you are expecting from d3 is a bit of a stretch. Also The Witcher and Skyrim are completely different types of games, sure they all have RPG aspects but what makes Diablo2/3 a GOAT is the multiplayer aspect. Did anyone really play it solo and consider it the best game they've ever played? No. It was my fav of all time because of online thats what the game is geared towards.
