You, good sir, speak the truth. I would also add the compulsion to explore and uncover every aspect of a new area. I'm not finished unless every part of my map has been filled so that I know I've checked for all possible dungeons, mobs, chests etc.
I'm also in the minority in that I quite like the lore. It's nothing special, but I do like the presentation of the world of Sanctuary and it's politics. The dialogue, however, has always been charmingly naff.
