So I bought and started playing D2 and... I think I might be missing something. I found 2 available quests and after that, all I'm seeing in the game is walking around and 2 shotting random mobs.

I started playing D2 again a few weeks ago aswell.
And I can only agree xD
You know the story, so you dont always pay so close attention to it, you know where to go so theres little "exploring" to do.
And yeh you just go around facerolling random mobs that doesnt drop anything usefull, wishing you find those "rare elites" to kill here and there.
Playing other games for the past 10 years have changed me atleast :P
I used to just play some D2 just cuz it was fun, and you never knew what you were gonna get.
Now you feel gimped before lvl 30 cuz you dont have your ultimate spells, you skip most of the story, and you know how stuff works so its not really much of a challenge.
It gets nostalgia points obviously.
And the challenge, playing on Hardcore gives some excitement atleast, that or edit so the game think theres more players to increase stuffs damage and health (but you get more xp, so not truly fair i guess)

Borderlands is similar. Many quests, of course, but you pretty much faceroll most things, aside from the occasional fustercluck of badasses or grenade-carrying midgets. I'm not sure why it's fun, but I imagine that facerolling hordes of mooks is satisfying at a visceral level.

Doing 4 man groups with people from my WoW guild was pretty darn awesome during the beta period.

Less than a day left until we can start counting down ten years to D4. :)

I'm fidgeting to get a good idea of what my first toon will be. My productivity has suffered :p
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I hope they implement Guilds or Clans for D3. A lot of my WoW guild will be playing D3 as well and it would be awesome to have a global chat channel with all of them while we play so we don't need to worry about groups and other things.

I'm up and ready to go, installed, ready to launch..

If they don't do clans/guilds it will have to be realid based to find your friends...

I wish there were larger groups...

I'm thinking rolling a Witch Doctor..(e e oo a a e e tararalinging)

This.

A lot of friends and guildies from various games are all planning on jumping on mumble playing together.

Myself I'll be taking a nap when I get home so that I can wake up at 2AM (Central Time) to play.

My first toon is going to be a witch doctor - but of course I will be making everything soon enough. :)

No need for RealID. Diablo 3 uses BattleTags.
