Personally, I assume that games like D2 are so popular because they cater all these desires of the masses who want them - good weapons, good armor, incredible stuff which makes all others fall to their knees and brabble "OMG …"

I fear that it's the mases who want to be all-powerful - and therefore be Munchkins and Power-Gamer.

I fear that the ones who play "according to the rules" are in the minority in a world where games give the chance to deliver everything (in terms of in-game items).

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
