So we're playing Diablo...again. I've lost count of how many times I've gotten hooked on this game. The gameplay has almost become a parody of itself at this point. It's like Whack-A-Mole with power ups. Storyline? Maybe there was a storyline the first time I played. Now I click on and click off the NPCs just to advance to the next quest. The cutscenes just slow me down. I've seen every spell effect, and every monster, and every creepy dungeon. There are parts of the game that are actually not fun to play (jungle anyone)? Yet play I do. And play I will. Any guesses what makes this game so addicting?Shopping. I just HAVE to have that little unique number that dropped off of that mob. I try on anything new I come across and see how it fits. I trade with other players so that we can have matching ensembles. If I find something that I'm sure a friend would love, I stash it away until I see them again and surprise them. Gems and jewels are like the perfect accessories for my wardrobe. They just add that something special. I know this is making you wince. It hits that close, doesn't it? Well we can keep it our little secret on one condition. You should probably stop making fun of people who play The Sims. After all, they've had five expansions already. They can at least claim they're addicted to the new gameplay.
