To this, I say that they purposely put out the statement as an obvious "hey no really, its a tough game, try and beat the challllennnngeee" as if it were some 80's commercial.

That just tells me you've never compared day & night.

My point is, diablo never had best graphics. But it always had an atmosphere that made the player feel whats going on and give the dark, hopeless feeling of a world that went terribly wrong and evil.

I dont think you even played an ounce of Beta by the comments you have made. DIII is more dreadful than torchlight.
It also consistently did so with plenty of flash, color, and spectacle; it was never Doom 3. Diablo II's color palette was rich and diverse, from lush greens of Act 3, bright warm environments in Act 2... heck, even the frozen wastes and icy tunnels of Act 5 had plenty of color. Pretty much only Act 4 was as you described, and that was in Hell.
You guys are getting wrong what I'm trying to say.
That's how Diablo 3 makes me feel. Darken&Sharpen filter "helps" old players like me to at least get some of that feeling back. Darken filter doesn't filter out bright magnetas, just makes them look like a bit rusty and worn to fit a demon infested world.

I'm after the feeling that makes Diablo franchise unique. There are many other gothic games with violence but none of them could replace Diablo. The reason behind it the unique feeling gamers felt in previous Diablo games.
