Let's face it, sometimes stuff happens and everything that can go wrong for a video game launch does. But, that doesn't mean they still suck! Here are eight games that got a lot better with a little TLC.

Diablo III

"Error 37"

For anyone who's played Diablo 3, this message is as unwelcome as the BSOD that plagued Windows ME. Though, Blizzard isn't as sluggish as some other publishers with updates and fixes so these issues were largely resolved, another came up that can kill any online game, content. Once you beat the game, there wasn't much in the way of replaying it. The only reason most played it after a month or so was farming for items they could sell on the auction house. The AH at launch allowed for both real money and virtual money exchanges for goods. As you can imagine, this led to quite a bit of exploits and gold farming.

Thankfully, Blizzard hates cheaters as much as any online player and eventually removed the auction house, understanding that it just wasn't a good idea for Diablo 3. They also added new stack of difficulty levels for players to test their skills and gear in with prestige levels that allowed one to continue leveling their characters far beyond the hard-level cap.
