I'm sure they could have found a better game (granted I don't have an example, nor would I give one if I could think of one)... I found PoE to be completely insipid and unmemorable. As far as free to play games go though, they certainly did a good job in that it really is free with no catches.

Diablo 2 clone won best PC game of year? A testament to how much PC gaming has fallen.
Basically every ARPG that's come out since is referred to as a Diablo* clone by someone... Why mess with stuff that works? Blizzard tried with D3 and that just pissed everyone off but at least now they're figuring it out.
Plus would you rather the latest installment in the CoD franchise win?
The game sounds great on paper, but once in game it is one of the most boring things I've played. Even Torchlight was more fun. They even messed up the mos important aspect of an ARPG, and that's the combat. It feels TERRIBLE in PoE, just god awful.
Because the door was open. Blue skies. Currently Playing: Assassin's Creed IV, Starcraft II: HoTS, Hearthstone (Beta).
I just don't get PoE really, I mean the world is really uninteresting, that skill tree is impressive but "ooh leveled up, 3% more melee speed" sounds lame and combat's just clunky
It's a passive skill tree, the skills come in the form of gems. With this system you can change your skill build freely and if you need to rework your passive tree there's refund points given through quest and regret orbs to do that.
