When Diablo Immortal launched last year, MOP’s Carlo was… not a fan. He actually recommended that folks just go buy six sourdough jacks from a popular fast-food chain instead as it would be money better spent. It was all deeply frustrating to him (and many of us!) as Diablo as a franchise is still beloved in spite of Blizzard.
So what did he do? Well, he bought those sammies, but he also went back to Diablo III and then wrote a whole piece about the journey after he realized that Diablo III already had all the stuff he wanted out of Diablo Immortal anyway, and as a bonus, he already owned that and didn’t have to pay another dime. I have had this happen to me over and over trying out new games that just wind up refreshing my love for something else inadvertently.
Has an MMO’s launch ever made you turn right around and play something else?
