Yeah, don't remind me of these three games. I got mad with these releases. With C&C I kinda expected because EA, but with WC3 Reforged was the nail in the coffin on my diminished trust in Blizzard. I'm very apprehensive about Diabo 2 Resurrected even thou the company doing the remake seems honest. In the end it's Blizzard. They may fuck the client like they did with WC3R. The graphics and other stuff I could forgive, but the multiplayer and custom map side of it was too much.
TAB is pretty thin in content. It had so much potential if it had more map variety and robust custom map creator. I do play the challenge of week if I feel like it. I'm afraid of playing Factorio. It seems I gonna sink 1000+ hours on that.
Yeah, games nowadays is all about controlled expectations. I kinda knew Cyberpunk wouldn't be all that was promised and it was still disappointing. I'm liking what I see from Humankind. I won't buy it on release. I just wait for all expansion package later like I'm doing with Civ VI. Civ V on release was a bit light on content too.
Remains to be seen but I hope they give Diablo justice. ActiBlizz is a stain on the gaming industry in a different way EA does. But for now when I'm itching for some Diablo-like experience the best alternative seem to be Grim Dawn or Path of Exile(though I'm not big on online games so haven't tried it)
As for Factorio if you do end up liking the game, yeah it'd be a huge time sink as a single savefile could last 200+ hours easily so not the best idea if you don't have much time.
I didn't watch any gameplay reveal on Humankind (just the trailer and comments on the game review) in the past few years I've preferred diving into a game blind as I find it more enjoyable. Less expectations too. I see there's generally positive feedback on it though so that's good, if it does well on release I'm definitely getting it.
