Q u o t e: I'll still be playing D2. My system won't run D3, and I can't buy a new computer. There are people still playing the original Diablo game (on battle.net!), so I doubt that D2 is going away any time soon. I predicted that D2 would still be played a hundred years from now, and I stand by that prediction.
As for being late to the party, well, there's always fun to be had, regardless.
