Diablo looks better and plays better


Looks better is subjective. Plays better is subjective. Your opinion are not 'facts'

Diablo 3 looks like a cartoon to me. And for my tastes not the style i enjoy in terms of a DIABLO game. Thats not to say it looks bad. But to so it looks better then PoE doesn't hold weight because they are both different styles of art.

PoE is more inline with Diablo 2 in terms of style.


Plays better is also subjective.. What does that mean plays better? D3 is very limited in play style and has no builds.. D3 has load out skills sets. Not exactly what i consider to be 'plays better'

If you like limited play styles and very linear map lay outs and acts. With a very bright and cartoony art style and no actual character builds. Then D3 is for you.

Path of exile is more inline with Diablo 2 and takes it further.. Its more complex and alot darker. Has actual character builds. (but people copy builds) Some people do..some people don't. Theres no hand holding here. Thats what a ARPG with builds does. Makes people actually have to think and seek out advice about 'builds'

But in the end.. Its about choice. You're free to go play Diablo 3 all you want. Not sure what you hating on PoE is going to do. Theres a reason why PoE is popular.. And theres nothing you can do about it.


And tagging the word "FACT" and the end of your opinion doesn't make it a FACT... Just sayin'


If D3 is so awesome why are you constantly riding PoEs ass? If D3 was so awesome id be playing it.. lol

I personally think its leaps and bounds better than d2. D2 got stale as f***!! after the 3rd act imo. This game just keeps delivering. And I'm a huge, long time fan of diablo.

D2 can't really hold a candle to path of exile with the small exception of cutscenes. That's literally it. Lol. Better than d3 in some aspects too.

PoE is the first free game that I'm probably going to buy stuff just to support the Devs. Very happy with the game. It's better than the last two games I paid $60 for (For Honor and Mass Effect).

I didnt make this topic to say which one is better. If you are a Diablo fan at all you may like this as well. I like them all. In fact I still didn't pull the trigger on the D3 Necro DLC but I will at some point. A Diablo fan has to play a Necro! :)

i haven't really checked it out but does POE have adjustable difficulty? I really like the character customization in it but became bored quickly as the combat was kind of stale and not really challenging at all.

I don't think it does for first play through. If it does I don't see where. I'm in Act 4 and it's getting difficult now. I die a few times.
