I just downloaded Path of Exile and played 7 hours straight and I’m in love. I have the Diablo 3 beta and I am severely underwhelmed after beta patch 13.
Almost all new releases these days are moving more and more towards user friendly content. More and more features get removed to appeal to the casual gamers. It doesn’t make a game more fun, it just decreases player freedom and customization! Sadly this is the path Blizzard chose for Diablo 3.
Path of Exile is the game Diablo 1 would be if it were released today. It’s simply a great game. It’s currently in closed beta but they are doing a public stress test from March 30th to April 1st for anyone to join! So download this game right now and re-experience the feeling you had when you first played Diablo 1.
