    D2 already did that, every map must have had tens of hundreds of monsters. Where d1 didn't have as many monsters, it still was much better in terms of creating that doomed atmosphere. What killed the doomed atmosphere in both games was the ability to play online, because it killed the storyline by making some parts of it avoidable.

    I think the atmosphere of diablo does add to the doomed feeling, but dimembered bodies, sacrificial areas, and bizzare evil occurances gets old and borring fast. Without the proper amount of contrast between good and evil the game won't create as much of a doomed atmosphere. Instead it will create a predictable world environment with very little concept behind it.

    The sudden shift between peace and war, or the concept of knowing that destruction is imminent, are far better methods of instilling "Doom" on a character than scary images.

    An MMO could easily create a doomed feeling, but ultimately it is up to the player to buy it. For example, WoW could create this doomed atmosphere simply by having the burning legion invade again. Sure this would be their 10th try, but I have to admit that I would probably piss my pants if some demon king came trotting across my lawn. My point is that an MMO could create a better sense of doom than both d1 and d2 combined. Whether or not it will is up to the developers, but I am sure they have something up their sleeve.

    I rekon that would be more commical, that game looks like a cartoon. The ultimate in video game horror is to make all characters "hardcore on creation" then send out waves of death at them =) id be terrified for that lvl 60 character constantly HAHAHA.

    Yeah theres more to Diablo then dismembered parts and floating organs and such... but its more the the fact that its your character alone that imparts that doomed feeling (at least as far as i am concerned).

    Also if Diablo were to go MMO (ala WoW) I dont think we would ever see a Star Craft 2 from Blizz (dedicating all their teams on WoW and D-something-or-rather). =)

    That is a valid point, but I think that Diablo will probably go MMO anyway. After all, blizzard has abbandond som of its games in the past.... Im still waiting for the next installment of The Lost Vikings....

    Wow I totally forgot about that game... It's been forgotten for years... It deserves a major new installment... Everyone thinking what I'm thinking?

    WORLD OF THE LOST VIKINGS
    BLIZZCON 2006

    J/K... That might be one game that Blizzard could make for the consoles. Idea? I think so.

    I think we were just discussing Diablo 3..Nothing particularly interesting I dont think or else someone would've remembered. What happened exactly to cause this?

    My point exactly. Is our post count the same or has it dropped back to what it was?

    Yes, I do feel that an act based entirely underground would be a good, if not interesting idea.

    We should also have yet another staff open yet another passageway. Because Blizzard seems to like to use that idea over and over.

    Heh, I also thing a totally underground act would be good. Kind of like the Drow in D&D. It could get a bit tiresome though but probably not if there are things to do. If you think about it, Diablo 1 is totally underground.

    why just limit it to underground? Why not underwater, in the air, ect somehow.

    There are tons of possiblities that are yet to be done.

    Ohh..Underwater? Sounds like Baldur's Gate 2 (how the hell do I know all of this). That would be very interesting. I wasn't saying just have it underground, I was just building on what Ryan (Miles Prower) was saying. Air? Somehow I guess, but that could get way to complimacated.

    >_> yeah, the Sahagin place in BG2...eek, I'm such a nerd even though I never actually played that game past the first chapter...

    I think in the air could be interesting. Like a city raised up on pillars with bridges connecting everything. It would be hard to explain where this city just suddenly came from and how it fits into Sanctuary though, I'll admit.
