Torchlight 2 worth it for $6.79??

Steam's got it on sale right now, seems like a pretty good price. I never really had that much interest in the game, but I loved Diablo 2 and enjoyed Diablo 3, was wondering if I should give it a go.
Can someone bum me a sig? I'm fresh out.

I bought it last night.
Figured it'd cost that much to rent a game anyway.
I've heard really good things about it.
Haven't played it yet tho

In my opinion, Diablo 2 is the perfect game of the genre because of three "speeds" - movement, leveling, and loot. I've played many of the other games in the genre (Torchlight 1/2, Titan Quest, Path of Exile, Sacred), and I feel Torchlight comes the closest. Titan Quest and Path of Exile are both noticeably slower in those three categories, which in my opinion makes them more difficult to get into (let me be clear, I'm a big fan of the genre and loved all of them on their own merits).

So in my opinion, it is worth it (I believe I payed 5 for TL and 10 for TL2). If you are a fan of the genre, I'd say its a title you can't pass up, and for that price it is a no brainer.
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

PoE is the best ARPG since D2 and its free, so...
If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.

TL2 is definitely worth it.

If you enjoy Action RPGs you will love Torchlight 2 - the skill trees for the various classes are diverse enough for you to make some interesting builds, and the monsters and environments are varied enough (both in appearance and abilities in the case of the monsters) to keep things interesting. Add in the "Synergies" mod, and you have a great ARPG experience.

Great game, except your achievements feel petty because there's no penalty for dying and you can whittle a boss down after 50 respawns...

Ignore anyone sayingf it's worth it, these are just casuals who haven't played - and don't have the capacity to play - the Diablo 2 uber-overhaul known as Median XL: Ultimatum (online The Sin War).
