I started playing the witch doctor, but the voice was too annoying. So I switched to the demon hunter, but she's grating on my nerves, too. They all talk like "I AM BATMAN".
I was dragging that holy roller warrior guy around with me for a bit, but instead of engaging the bad guys, the bad guys just swarm around him and attack me, without exception. Or instead of engaging anybody, the 'helper' follows me around within ten feet, and won't leave my side, when I'm trying to find a spot to shoot from, and even a split second to do it. Be a help, go thump on something with that super-special @#$^% sword I put in your retard hand!
Oh, and NOT auto-equipping the health potions? WTF? I'm OUT of health, but I have 18 of them in the inventory. And 'recharge' on health? A hundred copies of something are tearing me a new one, and the character is whining about being 'about to die', it doesn't matter how much I click on the thing (which means I am not driving, anymore), no health. One of the times I got STUCK, pinned between a health fountain and the butcher, and the edge of the big grill, and I couldn't even make the character drink from the fountain. Until dead, restart, etc.
It's possible that the game ramped up the difficulty because I let the helper follow me around, twice as annoying as a puppy, and just as useless. Skyrim was very nice. Between sniping with a bow, and summoning things to go occupy the bad guys, I could slaughter everything. Of course the 'helpers' were just as useless, but at least the AI counted them as 'threat'. In D3, the AI just swarms YOU, no matter what, and more or less ignores the NPC helpers, except to walk around them.
I like the summoning things and sending them off to their doom, fighting FOR ME, which is the whole necromancer/witch doctor thing. But the character is like scratching a chalkboard.
Maybe if I turn the voices OFF, I can play the game without wanting to go hunt down the writers and voice actors IRL and brutally slaughtering them. Some of the voice actors were good. But the one you have to listen to... all... the... time... is annoying.
Has anyone ever seen the video sequences? I have never seen more than a second of any of them without chopping. I'd gladly watch a much lower resolution version, just so it doesn't talk like Max Headroom. Buh....ha.....ga....nuh............ick....da.....bluh....
