Why You Are Not Necessarily Too Old To Buy Diablo 3

By Daniel R Woodrow

Whenever a new game is released, there is always an awful lot of hype surrounding that release. Obviously when you have a game such as Diablo 3 being released, then this hype is magnified tenfold because this is likely to be one of the biggest releases of 2012.

It is not an exaggeration to say that people have been waiting for years for this game to go on sale. This is due to the fact that the original two games were released back in 1996 and 2000, which is a very long time ago.

Diablo 1 and 2 were both warmly received by the gaming community and subsequently won a lot of awards. However the last game was released around 12 years ago, which has been quite frustrating for fans of this game franchise.

It is easy to see, therefore, why so many people are delighted that Diablo 3 is now just weeks away from being released. There have been so many rumours in recent years that this game is finally going to be developed and released, but we now have an official Diablo 3 release date to end all the speculation.

I believe that this particular release differs from many of the other games that are available due to the fact that it appeals to an older audience as well. Indeed I think people of all ages will be tempted to play this game at some point.

There are a few reasons why I make this claim. To begin with, this is going to be a role playing game and I think everyone knows that these type of games appeal to the older gamers as well because of their challenging nature.

You also have to bear in mind that a lot of these people will have been brought up playing games such as Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. These were released in 1996 and 2000 respectively, so it would not be surprising if they went out and bought Diablo 3 just to relive part of their childhood.

This game offers a multiplayer option, so this is another reason why the older generation may be tempted to buy it. If they know other people of the same age, possibly in their thirties, that are interested in this game, then they may be more inclined to purchase it just so they can play against other people.

I am in my mid thirties myself and I have to confess I still like playing computer games, even though I don't play them as much as when I was younger. There is nothing wrong with taking a few hours out of your busy schedule to relax and have fun playing some of these games.

I am all too aware that playing computer games at this age is quite uncool. However thousands of people still do, even though they don't like to admit it to anyone else. I think part of the reason for this is because today's games also much more advanced than they used to be, and therefore still highly enjoyable.

So going back to the release of Diablo 3, I am firmly of the belief that it is going to be very popular because there is such a large target market. Sure a lot of kids will buy it, but I think many older gamers will buy it as well. In fact I'm sure quite a few parents will buy this game just so they can have a go playing it themselves.

This game could turn out to be a complete dud, and a poor update in comparison to the original two games. However the preview videos to show it in a positive light, and hopefully it will turn out to be one of the best games of 2012.
