I think the realistic but also cynical take of what Diablo Immortal will be when it eventually releases is that it’ll be Free-2-Play, monetized to hell, and though being decent will give off a feeling of not having “the full Diablo experience”. I think this is just the way we, as game enthusiasts, think of mobile gaming now which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since the reach it will have can bring aboard new players and fans but at the same time we feel that the game just loses its soul because of it. So I guess my question is what is mobile gaming to you all now? Are we being unfair to judge the practices of mobile games when it the only way for it be successful? Is there any pre-established franchise that could be put onto mobile that you be stoked for? Not stoked for a day and you’ll probably never touch it again but legitimately you’d put time into even though you’d have to deal with monetization? Jet Force Gemini 2 Mobile?
