Anyone feel as if multiplayer PC games have been lackluster?

I use to play a lot of online PC games with friends. I always had a blast playing joint operations, WoW (in its early release), Diablo 2, etc. And farther back with Rainbow Six/Rogue Spear.

Lately I just can't seem to find anything that holds that multiplayer coop/competitive itch for PC. We play some PC games online, but nothing that holds out interest nor is as much fun as the games I mentioned.

Anything now or in the future that sort of satisfies that online PC Multiplayer community style gameplay? I am sort of describing MMO's, but nothing has really captivated me. Diablo 3 was the biggest letdown for myself and friends in years.

The only one I play is Warband, and I love it.

I find Warframe to fun for coop, Red Orchestra 2 and Rising Storm good fun, as well.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Have you tried Team Fortress 2? It's a very different sort of shooter than Rainbow Six, but it might pick your fancy. It's also free.

How so? I played through Inferno with a friend and it was good fun throughout, the varied powers, combat animations, environmental interaction etc. made for a good time. One of the better co-op experiences (unless you were expecting a carbon copy of Diablo 2 with better graphics). If you want a more traditional Diablo 2 - style game I'd suggest Torchlight 2, and Borderlands 2 is a lot of fun co-op as well.

I hate Diablo 3 too, but I'm sure for many different reasons than most. Simple things like melee enemies hitting you no matter how far you get from them, and the totally skill-less gameplay that is entirely gear based...

I've little time for MMOs, and I find most of them have learned nothing from the past 10 years of MMOs.

Shooters... Loved shooters... when you come from a background of C&C Renegade's base vs base awesomeness and fast paced Unreal Tournament, everything modern feels terrible.

And we just get WAY too little FPS of any values, let alone good coop ones.

The only good multiplayer game in a good while to come out since TF2 (which I got utterly bored of long ago) was Terraria...

Way too tired to explain why I disliked Diablo 3. I have went over it to death.

Torchlight 2 and Borderlands 2 definitely had our interest for a little while, but it never really had that online community aspect that makes a game a mainstay for years or even months.

I'd still recommend Diablo 3 sometime around March 2014. Game's going to be good.

I think it's become popular to blindly hate on Diablo 3 due to the DRM/auction house situation. Yes, it's not a perfect game, but I loved Diablo 2 and its expansion, and I had a great time with Diablo 3 as well.
