What I have to say about it is this:
Even though you're fighting against demons, and it's obviously not trying to persuade you to join the dark side, that's not what video games are for.
Video games are supposed to be a distraction.
And Diablo's endless gameplay serves the perfect distraction. Trying to get one extremely rare item can distract someone for 100s of hours.
Someone once said "Video games are the same as taking a tranquilizer" -Brad Pitt in 12 monkeys.
That's the truth of ALL video games. Even if they have a great message, they take you out of the real world into a fantasy world meant to distract
Although, if anything, Diablo 3's story is all about the end of the world. There could be many hidden messages prepping people for the end of this
That said, I'll see some of you at 2am tonight!

I completely disagree. That is like saying "all food" is only there to make people fat, regardless how healthy it is for you. "Its like slow kill bug
poison". Do you see how ridiculous your thought path is. Yes, a lot of people get carried away when playing video games. However, that doesn't mean
Video games can teach you about history, how to handle situations, the way people react to things, strategy, hand eye coordination, math, language,
and many other things. Many things can be bad if they are not used in moderation. Halo for example really puts religion into perspective.
You know the prophets clouding their peoples vision with lies, and calling the Master chief a demon. The flood that attempts to consume all life in
the universe. The ark and the library that holds genetic information of many forms of life. Video games teach you a lot
