Why is Path of Exile free?

It makes Diablo III look like a smelly pile of dog poo.

PoE is the worst ARPG I've ever played. I've only played about 7, but it was still the worst by far.

For the 6 or 7 hours I played it, I remember spamming 1 button (literally 1) and occasionally using a potion. I think I was a Duelist or something? I don't remember.

Didn't sell well enough (unlike Diablo 3 huehuehuehue).

Welcome to the world of ARPGs (or MMOs). There is a harder difficulty mode if you feel it's too easy.

How could you play the game for that long and not figure out how to use various skills?

By the time I was that far in, I was already using at least 6 skills (buttons) on a constant basis . . and they were all helpful.

I just started a new character, and it's the same thing. I use lmb, mmb, rmb, q, w, e, and sometimes r, on a regular basis.

That's why it's free. You get what you pay for, and in Path of Exile, you're "paying" for mediocrity.

. . . methodical, exacting, and worst of all, patient.

That's dungeon crawlers in a nutshell. The whole point is to kill lots of monsters, loot them, and level up. It's not supposed to be where every enemy encounter is a 50/50 shot at player death.
