Quote of the Day: “Irony Personified” or “Practice What You Preach”

 

Via Digg, I came across this little gem, Ten Games That Were Derivative But Still Rocked, from GamingBolt.com.

Torchlight (Derivative of the Diablo games)

Torchlight is Diablo through and through,with some minor changes. It even looks the same. If Torchlight was released under the name of DiabloIII, it wouldn’t be hard to pass of as it. Yet still- who known anything about Torchlight? Most of you might not have even known a game called Torchlight existed before reading this- Torchlight surely deserves more. It is a really good, qualitative, addictive game, that deserves much more than just a “Diablo rip-off” tag.

Let me clarify a few things. First, I don’t have anything against GamingBolt.com. I actually enjoy the content on the website. They actually seem to get selected for Digg top stories quite frequently, and they seem to be doing quite well, grammatical and structural errors notwithstanding. Kudos! Second, had it been any title other than Torchlight, (Werit can back me up on this), I probably would have ignored the redundant irony. But it is Torchlight, a gem of a game from the little studio that could. And I can’t just stay quiet about that now, can I?

Exhibit A:

  • The Title: “Torchlight (Derivative of the Diablo games)”
  • “Torchlight is Diablo through and through,with some minor changes.”
  • “If Torchlight was released under the name of DiabloIII, it wouldn’t be hard to pass [it] of[f] as [Diablo 3].”

Exhibit B:

  • “It is a really good, qualitative, addictive game, that deserves much more than just a “Diablo rip-off” tag.”

Uh… you know where you can stop this madness? Just a couple of lines up, you know, where you essentially call Torchlight a “Diablo rip-off!”
