It feels like a million years ago now, but there was a time when one of the hottest topics among the video game community was over whether Diablo 3 looked too colorful.
In early pre-release screenshots, some saw Diablo‘s grim and decayed world of Sanctuary slipping down the rubbery, cartoonish path of Blizzard’s own Warcraft universe.
