Got this game right around the time Destiny came out and I have come back to this and forgot that this game is FUN and I find it better for ME than Destiny.

If the drudgery of the core play gets boring, try hardcore. It can be white knuckle terrifying. It makes the game even more fun!!

Is this game worth getting now? I LOVED Diablo 2 (played it through about 10 times with different characters), but when Diablo 3 came out I heard it had major problems so I passed. Any better?

Diablo 3 PC launch was a mess. Right around the time they made the 360/PS3 ports they fixed the game a lot and the Ultimate Edition with the Expansion included is even better.

Lots of FUN!

They implemented it very well into a console game.

That said, the PC version has limited duped or hacked items. The console versions... not so much. especially core mode multiplayer. Still fun but even in torment 6 difficulty, one can be unkillable.

Hardcore is similar to PC with the occasional hacker. I don't mind duping and a couple of friends and I play a lot. Hardcore if you remember basically limits you to one death and you lose the character. There is a way around that but you have to unplug the xbox and it works about 60-70% of the time.

Another vote for the console version of Diablo 3. I skipped the PC launch and waited 'till it was reasonably patched, but the console version is an improvement on that. It's impressive how well Blizzard got this game to the consoles.

Get it.

I should mention that I'm a PC gamer.. Still worth it?

Yeah, I think so. If you like Diablos and don't mind switching from mouse/KB to gamepad, the console version of D3 is very solid.

Coming from mouse/KB, navigating the menus on the controller was slightly cumbersome and initially frustrating for me. But it becomes old hat once muscle memory kicks in. And if you like console dungeon crawls (I love 'em), the added dodge ability with the left stick is a great console addition that the PC version doesn't have.
