having auto points and respecs just means nobody really gives a shit.
easier =/= good
It's human nature ... strife,difficulty and hard work make the good things feel even better. Sense of accomplishment.
one of my pet peeves for RPG's is when that attributes/skills really don't mean much because the game is so easy it doesn't matter what you pick.
I understand that some people like how the skills change the storyline.
Ohhh, i'm a bad guy and now the people yell at me *ooh shiver*
i'm not really into that part of the RPG stuff. I'm into character building and problem solving. Then i use battle to gauge how well i solved the problem in character development.
I really do agree with you, however Blizzard realized it needs to cater to the widest audience out there.
I think we will both enjoy Diablo 3...maybe not as much as the first or second, but I think it will have something there for everyone.
