I'm honestly having the opposite impression. I adore the bounty of quality of life improvements, new mechanics, and expansions of the map, but I still find myself feeling like I'm more likely to do a replay of Breath of the Wild over this, in the future.I think it would be very hard to return to BotW at this point.
Both Barbs?Diablo IV - Played it online with my dad, who is in his early 80s and has played all the previous games right along with me, for a couple hours last night. The opportunity to do that in itself at this point is obviously nicer than anything a game can otherwise offer, but it's fun and seems good so far. Maybe I won't even try to take his ear once PvP is figured out.
This was pretty much my biggest issue with the game. I thought the game was ok, but I seriously hope that this is not how future installments of the franchise will be.Now, if you're looking for an RPG experience, look elsewhere. This game is about as much of an RPG as Elden Ring is a stealth game.
