The gaming industry has known an astonishing development throughout the last decade. A great variety of games have become available, giving fans the option to choose, depending on their preferences, between traditional board games, skill games, mystery games, tactical games etc.
The most popular genre remains, however, the fantasy/skill type, and Diablo game series has reached the hearts of gamers all over the world.
But, what sets “Diablo III” apart from any other games ever made? We could call it a trendsetter, considering that it excels in all aspects, including music, art, writing, graphics, playability and others.
It has also succeeded to set new difficulty standards. Gamers find obtaining the status of dominator in “Diablo III” a real challenge, describing it as far more complicated than what most of the other competitive games involve.
It is very challenging even for the dominators of its previous two editions, who have to develop new strategies and use all of their skills to stay alive, while leveling-up is also a tough deal, especially for new players.
Another impressive feature of the game is the player vs. player (PvP) mode, significantly increasing the game’s dynamism. The newest and one of the most talked about feature is the system of the dual currency auction house that enables players to alternate the use of in-game gold with that of real world money.
Since Blizzard does not sell anything within the game, it is up to the worldwide gamers to control the game’s economy. For example, the exchange rate depends exclusively on how much money is introduced in the game and how players around the world use it.
Besides skills, the game focuses also on strategy and tactics, so gamers who depended on skills alone are about to be surprised. They have to outthink their enemies and continuously develop new strategies in order to keep up with the dynamics of the game.
As a result, only the very best players succeed to become dominators. In this case, victory has nothing or very little to do with the time one spends in front of the computer screen. One explanation would be the fact that none of the old formulas work in the newest edition of Diablo.
Fans are thrilled too, as “Diablo III” impressed them with its exquisite design, the creation of Jay Wilson, magically complemented by Russell Brower’s music. The original combination between the new “Diablo III” legacy and the popular storyline make this game simply irresistible.
