Top 5 Action RPGs of this Generation

The Koalition writes: "To be clear, this list is in regards to isometric-styled hack-and-slash action RPGs. If you've ever played a Diablo game or anything like that, then you have a pretty good idea. There are lots of games and franchises in this genre, but it also seems to be one of the most under-represented each and every gaming generation. Releases are few and far between, but each successive title seems to always garner praise and success. One of the most iconic franchises in all of gaming - Diablo - basically started the entire subgenre and it's still going strong to this day. With Diablo III finally set to release on consoles soon, I thought this was a good time to take a look back at all of the best the action RPG genre has to offer this generation."

Definitely looking forward to Diablo III on consoles. Very anxious to see what has been added and taken away from the PC version.

I enjoyed Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile should be on the list.

POE is very hard!

Doesn't fit the criteria of the article.

Dark Souls is not in the ARPG genre.

It has action of course but ARPG is something else.

Do explain sir...i've been calling them all Action RPGs up until now.

An RPG with real time what I have been calling ARPGS.

@Irishguy95 For PC gamers, ARPGs are only Diablo clones.

Good article. A bit sparse, it would have been nice to hear a bit more detail about each game instead of a short, basic description.
But good. I enjoyed the read.

Yeah more detail would have been better, maybe some information about *really* makes them different besides the setting and whatnot. It's tough to get too detailed and keep the list relatively brief, though.

Thanks for reading!

Author is it in that order?

If so I would pick Diablo 1,2,3 as first three. Everything else comes after.

This article was focused on only this generation of consoles as a year-range, so Diablo I & II were excluded :)
