"I must say I am disappointed that Blizzard has stayed on the conservative side in terms of design with their updates to Diablo and Starcraft," said Fallout 3 producer Ashley Chung. Chung does make an excellent point: while Diablo III's gameplay does look exciting, Blizzard's conservative strategy of refinement over innovation is also readily apparent during the 20-minute gameplay trailer released this past Saturday along with the game's formal announcement.
Even so, Chung goes on to state what many similarly disappointed gamers have admitted: the game may not stray too far from home, but it looks fantastic nonetheless. "I have no doubt, however, that they will be incredibly fun, addictive and polished games," said Chung. "Blizzard is the top of the class when it comes to game development - nobody does it better."
