Why I Am Not Playing Diablo 3 - Yet


The Internet as I know it has been quiet the past few days. I am not even considering any other reason. There’s only one.

The much awaited Diablo 3.

For someone who is not a hardcore gamer but can spend days on end playing a game (albeit very sporadically), I am actually surprised that I have not caved in to the Diablo 3 fever. Yet.

I had some spare time today, so I guess it was but natural to think about why I am one of the few people I know who has remained immune to the game. You can think whatever you want of it, but here are the reasons I am not playing Diablo 3. For now.

Error 37

Okay, it is a lame a reason as any. Gamers have been waiting for Diablo 3 for eternity it seems, what do another several hours matter?

I know that it can be utterly frustrating to encounter server errors while you’re caught up in the heat of the moment, but heck, it won’t kill you. Maybe.

Then again, if I have been able to survive without the game for so long, I am sure I will survive the next weeks or months till the issues get resolved. In any case, I do not feel like being likened to this poor guy.

Anti-bandwagon tendencies

I probably am just being difficult, but with practically everyone I know putting their lives on hold for Diablo 3, I feel like swimming upstream. There really is no going around it. Stubbornness can be a tricky thing.

Oh, and there is the issue of having to deal with actually purchasing the game. I don’t know where you are, but if you have not pre-ordered the game (as I obviously did not), then good luck. Sure, shopping can be as easy as clicking buttons or swiping cards – retail POS software for the win! – but either you bang elbows with other almost desperate gamers or you simply will have to wait for more copies to arrive. Guess what I have chosen to do?

The issue of EQ

I have always gone out of my way to prove that I have a high emotional quotient. Whether or not that is an indication of my lack thereof, I don’t really know.

I shall end this with a question: if I don’t start playing Diablo 3 for as long as I can hold out, does that mean I have high EQ?
