That's a sweeping generalization. And, like most sweeping generalizations, it's false.Above is the reason why people can't be thankful: everything that is successful is hated.
be that Microsoft, Apple, COD, WOW and so now Diablo 3.
I don't hate Microsoft, I actually like it. I don't use much Apple Stuff, but that's because I enjoy being different with my blackberry - not because I really dislike apple (although I do prefer a bunch of Microsoft stuff where the two successful companies do compete directly, and i never liked those blueberry etc colored computers). I don't hate COD; I've just never played it because fps games aren't really my thing. I don't love WoW, but I play it because the game I wanted to love crashed and burned really really really hard (maybe harder than D3, even...).
Also slightly confusing to me that you want to tie in people's appreciation of D3 to our willingness to "hit the button" and have a nuclear holocaust. But whatever...
