OP  5/06/13 9:38:46 AM#1
I see this game come up a lot on the LFGame forums and just don't see how anyone plays it.  You never would have figured that in today's gaming industry that a Diablo II clone would have any type of success.  I admit that it was the best online game of its day, but that was all made possible by the fact that Everquest cost money to play.  Is it just me but when i tried Path of Exile it made me want to vomit at the thought of Diablo II repeat with mindless slaughter of hordes of monsters.  So what does this game give the players that Diablo did not and is it actually worth it when we got so many other games to play?

Is it too much like Diablo 2?

Yes
No
Won't even try it.

The game wouldn't even be on anybody's radar if it wasn't for the D3 fiasco. People needed a game to run crying to.

Mindless slaughter of monsters is pretty much any MMORPG game these days... so you could say whats the point in playing any of them .

I tried the game but never loved the combat.   After you finish ACT III it dumps you off at the beginning and you do it all over again.  I logged out after that and never went back.  For a game so long in development I expected more content.  As for the mindless slaugher of monsters, I cant really knock the game in that regard.  That is what these type of games are all about.  If you dont like this type of gameplay then try something else.  There seems to be many people who are content to just hack and slash at monsters.

This is like saying why would anyone play AoC, Rift, SWTOR, ect ect as they all are just WoW clones and yet they are successful (success meaning it's still got servers going and development going on).  PoE is a different taste of a certain genre.

I agree.

The PvE combat in PoE is much better than most, if not all MMO's I have played.

An RPG with fun combat and monster-killing?

It'll never work.

(Altough admittedly I haven't tried it yet, it's mostly because I figure it'll be another Torchlight 2 where the actual combat isn't as deep as Diablo 3 (especially due to the abundance of character customization.)   Diablo 3's failures were mostly AH-related, being able to short-circuit gear upgrades with no Bind on Pickup system, and also failing to land you in a repeatable endgame where the challenges ramped up gradually along with the rewards.)

See to me these types of games are for playing on a laptop when youre on a business trip or whatever.

Which is why I like Torchlight 2. No need to be on the internet.

Yeah really.

Killing hordes of mobs is popular. Where have the OP been?

D3 has more success than most MMORPGs (when is the last one selling 12M boxes, except WOW?).

TL & TL2 is a success. There is plenty of market for Diablo type ARPGs.

It's the essence of the ARPG. Who really complains about running around killing monsters nonstop?

Also, the economy/crafting is unique, and the ways of customizing your character are very well done.

I can't get over the controls. I know that's how these types of game's work but I don't like it. I much prefer traditional MMO controls (3rd person PoV with the camera behind me, WASD movement, tab target or manual aiming, hotkeying abilities, etc). Other than that I don't see anything wrong with this game.

Was that last part a rhetorical question?  Sounds like you have your mind made up already.

 Run crying to because D3 was an utter failure and Path of Exile is actually one of the best hack and slash in years? Yeah, I think anyone would flock to it knowing that the games character customization is outstanding.


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

Don't forget this also cost's you nothing and has a decent cash shop model.

I wonder if they are making enough money to keep the game alive.

I think op is trying to ask why anyone plays diablo style Arpgs anymore, when even the most basic mmo has more depth. PoE definitely looks to be the best of the genre...but that isn't saying much.

The problem I have with path of exile is how very very slow the levelling gets near the end and just how very nasty the death penalty gets.  I do not like the idea of playing a game for a full week or longer with the hopes of gaining a level. 

 

People always say how slow the levelling was in Everquest, but really it was never as bad as most FTP grind games of the current day.  I mean the worst I think EQ ever got was 2 blue in an hour and that was 8% of a level per hour.  Things were even easier back before expansions.  I used to want to get out of the long levels(35,40,45) and I would usually manage to grind them out in a single day.

I hope so.  Not that I'm really a fan of poe, but it would be good to see some mmo's use their model rather than what's usually available(if it's at all succesfull).
