As someone who played thousands of hours of D2 (and wanted more), getting bored after about 150~ish hours wasn't really what I expected when I dropped $60 on D3. I'm not sorry I bought it, I'm just sorry that this was the result of 8 years of waiting/4+ years of development. It was such a long wait that I didn't care about D3 anymore: I had put the thought of D3 out of my mind and was fine with the fact that Bliz would release it when it was ready. No rush (obviously), I could wait.

Judging from the last couple of pages of this thread, many of you have straight dropped the game (as I did), or are barely playing it fewer than 2 months after release. Personally, I found a lvl 59 "Legendary" that was so bad that I felt no desire to play the game afterward (and haven't since).

Now I'm playing the Path of Exile closed beta and it's already more satisfying than D3 - and it's not even finished yet. That nostalgic feeling that everyone shot down the D2 fans for during the D3 launch? PoE generates it in spades. Plus it has a deep active/passive skill system, great atmosphere (light radius in randomly-generated dungeons? But I thought it was impossible?!) and awesome itemization. The PoE open beta is scheduled to start in August should all go according to plan, so check it out if you get a chance!
