An absolutely laughable exaggeration, that hardly merits a reply. However, it appears that tens of thousands of people disagree with your ridiculous assessment of POE.  They had an "Open Beta" stress test of the game over Easter, which had nearly 50,000 different people play it, despite it still being quite "in Beta" and not being that well known.

In the aftermath of that, they raised over $200,000 in donations in just five days of fund raising, and from what I hear, that total is closing in on $350,000.  This is for a first title from a small, New Zealand-based indie studio

There is a deep story in POE, but right now it's communicated through NPCs, lore on Unique items, and on the website.  Yes, I know that means you actually have to *read* your lore rather than just listen to it, but good news wrightstuf!  They've promised the game will contain full voice overs when it releases.  The game also has only two of three planned Acts currently, and Act 3 will contain a lot of those missing story elements.  The entire point of the story is that you're abandoned on a desolate beach, without really initially knowing why you're there or where you're headed. 

And seriously, can you actually say that you enjoyed the D3 Beta?  A boring, repetitous slog through 45 minutes of shallow content with zero challenge or customization?  The game has a handful of skills that are basically interchangeable, and all of them demolish your enemies instantly without a hint of danger.  Oh yeah, and the loot system is a complete joke, basically a copy paste of WoW's green items, even down to the names of the prefixes and suffixes.  As a hardcore ARPG player, there is nothing I like more than a big giant NUMBER on every weapon I find, so that I don't have to take even five seconds to actually figure out if it's an upgrade for me.  

POE is a fantastic game, already astonishing in its ambitions and depth, that promises to be perhaps the best game ever made in the ARPG genre when it's done.  It's also free, figured I'd mention that too.

This thread does a pretty good job of demonstrating I'm far from alone in my assessments:

Why must every other post be about POE? don't any one hang out in your own forums?  I am sure POE is fine for what it want to achieve but itss painting by numbers when it come to game design and thats boring. my opinon.

As somoene who likes Titan Quest. No. No. And, no.

I'm very accepting of other Hack&Slashes but I really don't see how TQ (or PoE, for that matter) holds a candle to DIII. Even in terms of graphics I always hated how lifeless both of those games look. And there were tons of other issues. TQ skill system was really underwhelming. Drops were very strangely balanced with the whole dropping-in-specific-places thing. A lot of stuff felt very awkward and artificial in terms of affixes, such as attack speed. The knockback on enemies you killed didn't help, either.

I enjoy TQIT and I do think that the game was ahead of it's years, judging how you needed a pretty damn good computer in those days to play it well. You could make a lot of different characters with all those trees, but it took ages before your build was somewhat finished. I rather have fun from the beginning, then only after 20 hours of playtime.

That said, I really like TQIT. The areas that game has are all awesome. The mythical setting is also pretty damn cool, hell, even Leonidas is ingame  There is also a suprising amount of voiceovers in the game, most civilians have 4-6 different sentences, which is pretty awesome.

That said, I don't believe it can stand toe-to-toe with Diablo 3. Aesthetics, gameplay and atmosphere wise I like Diablo 3 more then TQIT. Still I recommend TQIT to anyone who like action rpg's/dungeon crawlers.

Titan Quest was a great game, no doubt, but it's not like I will be playing it instead of D3. I don't think it's easy to say that it is better.

i played tq and found it to be too slugish. nothing really made me want to play it further, weak items, weak skills, weak "story" overall mediocre. mages where op btw. As for PoE that some ppl are taunting as a alternative: for christ sake stop it. PoE is like the minecraft of arpg's, the bare minimum that needs to be there so it can be called a game. Oh, you mean that big "skilltree" is giving you freedom of choice? well too bad its a passive tree with no skills involved. Good luck on finding the skills you want cause they drop from monsters at random. its the same mistake sacred made back then. But then again they fixed that in sacred 2.

Titan Quest is a good game if u like diablo so be sure to give it a try.

Path of Exile looks good too but all the gameplay videos i saw looked kinda poor

The combat and skill just doesnt feel right, to slow bad animation compared with diablo 3 and titan quest

For a lot of true D2 veterans POE is the reference. What they think a new D2 sequel should be like 2012.

People can of course think D3 is good and fun enough to play anyway. Its just that maybe PoE deserves to be called Diablo3 more than Diablo3.  And it would be better if Diablo 3 was called "World of Diablo, Small Multiplayer" or something like that.

Perhaps people plan to play both POE and D3? And want to discuss them both.

Thanks, you just blew my mind. Ppl critize d3 for not being like d2 and here you come and claim that a game like poe that has no skill trees and random skill drops is the real d3. you sir are without a doubt one of those "true d2 veterans". One of the veterans with brain damage.

I'm tired of these self-proclaimed D2 "vets". I put in just as much time as the next "vet" into D2 (and D1), and I say that D3 is a successor.

But that can't be, right? I mean, Its made by Blizzard! Evil! WoWablo! Greed! Bladibla!

Get over yourselves already. Play PoE if you prefer it. I don't care. We'll see in a years time who's who and what's what.

 

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

BizkitNL posted pretty much above this post of mine what I think of these Diablo 2 "veterans" and "hardcore" players. They wanted a sequel to Diablo 2 so badly, but when it turned out that Diablo 3 would be more streamlined and different in some perspectives, what was the first thing they cried about:

  • It doesn't look like Diablo 2
  • It doesn't have talent/skill trees
  • You can't spend points on leveling up
  • It's easy.
Diablo 2 wasn't hard in Normal Mode, let alone in Act 1. Diablo 3 looks better then Diablo 2. You can actually *see* something now in dungeons/cave/crypts/etc. Personally I like the drawn/painted style and before people start throwing out the "cartoony" argument: Torchlight and it's sequel are cartoony. Diablo 3 looks more like Guild Wars 2 artstyle, more painted like.
Personally I think that Diablo 3 has a lot in common with Guild Wars 2. In both games you champion gets all the skills at the end. Guild Wars 2 goes a bit further perhaps, with even the endgame gear being the same for the champions. In the end, in both games you can just play the character in the way you want to, without being forced to level again. In no way is this "dumbing the game down".
 
The absence of skill trees is a logical follow up on this. When you have skill trees and you can just reset them at a small fee, why have them at all? It's just a hassle then. That's why i like the systems of Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2. In Guild Wars 2 you still need to reset you traits at the "trainer", but once your weapon skills and class skills are unlocked, they stay unlocked.
 
Diablo 3 let's you swith your skills when you want, at the cost of a short cooldown period to balance it out a bit. In the end this system let's me focus on one Barbarian, one Wizard, etc. instead of having to go through the content again and again with a fire sorceress, frost sorceress, etc.
 
Skill points are something of the past too. Pick out any Diablo 2 guide. Any Titan Quest guide. Put the points in str, dex, int till you can wear everything you want to wear, the rest goes in vitality, HP whatever. Hardly a challenge. I wish they would just removed it entirly, but lacking that, distributing it automatically is fine too.
 
I do agree with the bit that anyone should just play what they want, but I just get tired of these "veterans" and "hardcore" Diablo 2 players that seem to rage about nothing and concluding that Diablo 3 indeed, is not Diablo 2 Turbo.

If you really want a successor to DII of that nature, please play MedianXL or something. PoE is like a worse version of DII that only looks slightly better. If DIII is not a successor to DII (it may not be. I'm not sure I want it to be), DII most certainly was not a successor to DI. Seems to have worked out fine.

There's nothing WoW about DIII at all. It's most definitely a Hack&Slash. Graphics don't make that any different. TL looks very cartoonish but that doesn't magically make it an MMO. Nor is AoEO suddenly not an RTS.
