 Because Diablo 1 and 2 were good games, and WoW was a piece of crap.

If it was a D3 clone people would be hating on it, but thankfully it isnt.

Also Diablo was not the first ARPG. The original Gauntlet probably takes that honour. Noone calls Diablo a Gauntlet clone.


but as i have said multiple times in this thread, people have called games D2 clones.

Simple answer: People want to play a Diablo 1 or 2 clone. People do not want to play another WoW clone.

If 100 game companies were making Diablo clones over the next seven years, more and more people would be unwilling to play Diablo clones.

Ok, one last time if you miss it on last three pages:

You make a wrong assumption that "a clone" is always a derogatory term.  But just because most clones of games are of a poor quality (missing features, lacking something innovative, etc.), it does not mean that all clones are bad. 

Now because you refuse to accept that simple truth, but you keep answering to other flameish post, it looks like you would like this topic to turn into a flame war.

Thats why I say you either like gaining attention or just simply trolling.


like most people here, you are assuming way too much. you say the term "clone" is not always used as derogatory but i honestly don't see anyone using it in any other manner.

i know everyone doesn't think all "clones" are bad, i am one of those people.

but when someone uses that term its always in a derogatory manner, at least from what i have read here and at other gaming sites throughout the years.

its true all games have features they borrowed from other games, you could literally call every game a clone.

that's actually my point and why i think the term is used for an excuse to bash a game or style of game you don't like.

but on top of that, what really inspired me to make this thread is the fact that POE isn't just another clone, its a direct rip off.

not saying that's a bad thing (at least for me personally) but its just odd that people hate on everything that's a clone of this or that, yet this game is such an obvious and direct diablo clone and nobody seems to care?

for the people that say there isn't a lot of quality ARPG games and yet there is a lot of wow style games, i do understand that point.

but again, i remember when people trashed dungeon siege for being a diablo clone, i remember when people trashed wow (before it even released) for being an EQ and Daoc clone.

so that logic doesn't always apply.

alright, then explain to me why people use the term "GW2 clone" when trashing TESO?

or the people that trashed dungeon siege back in the day for being a diablo clone?

I agree with your observation here.  It is true that people quickly call out other games as "clones" but gave this one a free pass.  And the reason IS because of how Diablo 3  burned everyone.  People are upset about that.  That's why almost every post I see about the merits of this game basically starts and ends with "and it's not Diablo 3! yayyy!"

Don't expect everyone to enjoy being called on that though ;)

How about you read my post above and then in similar detail, providing actual facts. Prove how the game, at it's core, is a direct ripoff of Diablo. I'll give you a hint, saying it shares feature x or y when it's common to all games within that particular genre is not a valid argument.

 

Direct ripoff would be comparing Runes of Magic to WoW when RoM launched. Are you trying to say that the D2/PoE differences are as little as that? Cause if you are then you really are just trolling.

Its not a diablo clone. It is a type of game, a genre. Get over it. Plus PoE does a ton different than all other games of this genre. Kthxbai.

so the fact that it looks and feels exactly like diablo doesn't make it a diablo clone?

there are ARPG's out there that are nowhere near this close to ripping off diablo.

if this isn't a clone then no game is a clone. yes it has a few different core features but they obviously ripped off a heck of a lot of things directly from diablo.

character selection, the overall dark and gritty feel of the game, the UI is almost exactly the same, waypoints, town portals, randomized monsters and elites with randomized special powers and resists, i could go on and on.

honestly, it would be much easier to name the few things that poe does differently than diablo.

so some of you guys can stick your head in the sand and pretend that this isn't a diablo clone all you want to.

but its not changing the fact that this is indeed a gigantic diablo rip off and a good one too IMO lol (at least so far)

Most of us are well aware and have even stated that we know GGG took many elements from D2 - anyone with any semblance of intelligence and/or consciousness can clearly see that. But that still doesn't make it a "complete D2 ripoff" and you're delusional if you really believe that. Either that, or you're a drama queen and exaggeration is your thing.

But whatever man. Keep on avoiding thorough posts (like Zezda's) that lay your weak argument to waste. It's been mildly entertaining to watch.

So because it's an ARPG it's a D2 'clone'?

Torchlight must be a D2 clone then, it has a character select, a similar UI, waypoints, town portals and randomized monsters too!

Star Trek Online is just a clone of EVE as well while we are at it using your dodgy reasoning.. I mean it's got spaceships and you fight other spaceships and you have a character even though most of the time you don't see them! They even both have a market/auction system in place as well!!!!

I like how you still haven't took me up on my offer of explaining why it's a ripoff other than sticking your fingers in your ears and going 'BUT IT LOOKS THE SAME!!!'

But then again, why would we bother using facts and reasoning to explain something when you can just type the same thing 50 times until people get bored and stop responding. How about you spend 5 minutes and tell us what makes it a ripoff in some level of detail without resorting to citing features that are considered very standard for any ARPG, especially point and click ones.

Until you do that then you have no argument whatsoever.

all anyone ever wanted was Diablo 2 in HD, at least thats all i wanted.. not a carebear overhaul to appease a greater audiance. So unlike this new diablo. Path of Exile actually allows me to allocate skill points. it doesnt do it for me. And the ability to use ANY power i flippin want by meeting basic requirements and an open slot on my weapons or armor that i can remove and replace at any time with no charge or hassel. sign me up.

have you even seen that skill tree? its glorious..

 

Did i mention its free.

More people play D3 than POE.

 

More people listen to justin bieber than to real music.....give PoE some of the million for marketing and the staff of developers under the lead of chris and lets see what GGG comes up with compared to D3.

 

The game mechanics are deeper than any other blizzard game and the game itself feels like a D3 because it has the core mechanics with enhanced gameplay. While WoW startet with an idea ( World of WARCRAFT....do you actually see any warcraft ?) and got more and more simplified lacking any deep gameplay. You grind through the contant and thats it, no freedome nothing.

Thats why WoW clones are so hated because they throw in another casual mass market game, basicly they open ANOTHER Mc donalds rather than a new restaurant

I laughed out loud here.

 

Even when PoE is a clone of Diablo, it's still a better game than D3, period.

not only is this game a diablo clone, some of it is a direct rip off.

from character selection to the inventory panel to the UI (and this is just from playing the game for 10 minutes, there is probably much more)

its actually pretty funny how blatantly they ripped off diablo.

whatever happened to these indie companies being more creative? isn't that why so many of you support them? or is it just because you hate the big companies like blizzard that make tons of money?

i am not trying to post flame bait, but the double standard just seems odd to me.

 

 

to make it short: WoW is crap, so a WoW clone is an insult. D2 was godly, and thereby a D2 clone is a good thing. whats there not to understand?

If you can't kill it, don't make it mad.

Made me laugh...awesome! 

Fun Fact: 1st edition of Dungeons and Dragons was complete garbage.

Tunnels and Trolls all the way... ^^
