We do things and we are compensated. It is a clear path to that basic reptile part of the human brain – gratification. Whether it be extra experience point gains for the most enemies killed at once or the copious gifts released by a boss’s death, the cause-and-positive-effect aspect of Diablo 3 is truly addictive. The combination of progress, leveling up and a storyline speaks to the part of us that wants things simple again. It's that part that wants to trade department meetings at work for a vampire broadsword in Bastion’s Keep. We give in to Diablo 3 and it makes us feel good for doing so.
Adventurers beware – Diablo 3 has claws that reach far and deep. With amazing gameplay, graphic and sound achievement and an environment built for PC gamers, Blizzard’s latest production rules. It also controls, demands and never lets you go. We’ve waited for over a decade for this game and it has finally arrived. German poet Friedrich Schiller once said “Accursed be he who plays with the devil.” Those that battle Diablo know the truth of these words and this game, like any tempting addiction, is at its best when surrendered to.
