Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2 dominated 2012 but now a new player has entered the arena. Path of Exile shows that being a hack and slash game that throws away tradition can be done correctly.
The game is good but is a pretty obvious diablo 2 clone with an overcomplicated skill system.
So? a win win situation! Diablo 2 is a masterpiece and I don't know what Blizzard was smoking when they designed Diablo 3. Path of Exile it's an amazing game created with the foundation of Diablo 2 and with the additions we wanted to see on Diablo 3. The skill tree is a tremendous and allow you to have a unique character. Between PoE and Torchlight 2, there is no room for D3 anymore.
D3 > PoE > D2 > TL(1&2)
i'm loving PoE
