Q u o t e: In any case I think we're estimating a longer game than Diablo II right now, regardless of actual comparable act size.
I like the sound of that.
This may be off topic but J.R.R. Tolkien's primary criticism of his work was that it was "too short". He said that for people that like this kind of thing there is no such thing as too long as long as it is done well. I think that priniciple probably applies here. Look at WoW for hell's sake lol.
