Which is better and why? I've never played a game like this before but damn they look good

Other than sharing an acronym with one of them, Pillars of Eternity is nothing like the other two games whatsoever.

Diablo 3 is apparently easier to play casually than Path of Exile.

If you've never played a game like this before I'd start with Diablo 2. It's a classic and the best of its genre. Also, Pillars of Eternity isn't in the same genre of the other ones; it's a party-based RPG with a lot of story/reading, while the other two are 'hack 'n slash' action RPGs.

Since you just listed two genres of game, what are you actually looking for?

Pillars is the best of those. A good standard RPG will always outclass a Hack 'n Slash RPG... unless you're some sort of gambling addict who gets off on loot whoring more than good design and writing.

D3 is probably the best Hack 'n Slash out there, but that's only the console version with its elegant non-click-click-click control scheme.

Combining all the plagues of Free2Play with all the plagues of Hack 'n Slash RPGs in general makes me want to stay as far away from Path of Exile as possible.

Nah, Pillars is more of a standard RPG whereas Diablo 3 and Path of Exile are isometric looty ARPGs.

Depends on what experience you want tbh. If you're more looking for a casual game, D3 is perfect for that. If you're looking for a hardcore game, PoE is where it's at. With that being said, Path just released a new expansion a couple weeks ago that revamped the leveling process, so now's a perfect time to jump in.

Technically it's an initialism, but whatevs.

Pillars of Eternity is not even within the same genre as the other two.
