Do what my title says. Play THIS GAME!
I am not a typical fan of ARPG games. I did not buy diablo 3, played beta to 12 (to colorful, not scary). I beat diablo 1 and 2 and then quit both after all the fun.
Being a content locust myself I play everything there is. I don't care if its ugly, I just want to understand what functions every game has first hand. I could care less how it sounds on paper or sees in a video. I want to know how IT FEELS!!!
Path of Exiles FEELS like the best ARPG ever made. I have gone into dungeons and crossed mobs that have put me down before I could blink. I crawl into a deeper dungeon and my field of view is hindered by shadows. I am spamming AoE from the tips of my fingers hoping to weaken anything that may aproach. I must not die. I must get some shiny loot.
I am only level 22 on my main in this game. I have mainly focused on one of the Acts. No matter how many hours I put into this game I know that when I turn it off. I will be back. There is no point in me ever taking it off my harddrive. The only other game I never delete is Starcraft 2 (I am so hooked on a mod called Desert Strike. Terran FTW). It's so nice having a game that has no monthly fee. That can give you the small gaming session of 45 mins here and there or feed my gaming weekends. I am truly smitten by this game. The funny thing is I played this game once. Kind of ignored it. Logged in again last month and was immediatly realizing what I had on my hands.
Props to Grinding Gear Games. This game will be around for a long long time I hope. It will have a niche. A respectable one of gamers looking for something similar to when they were younger discovering there first dungeon crawler they fell in love with.
A true fan-

Level 50 now. Died on final act 2 boss in HC /cry! Have now reached Cruel act 3 and oh man is soloing getting hard. This game will want you to group up for sure.
Highly suggest building with a lot of elemental resist. I am a witcher and man is it rough lol. Challenge is good. SO fun.

Just reached Merciless Act 3. The bandits were pretty tough I actually had to group up for one of them. Act 3 is very tough. It's hard in the sense that you are going to walk forward sometimes and take 5 arrows to the dome at once and you will die from this. I am a Witcher and im very squishy when it comes to actual ES and HP (1600 in total) because I am more defensive in the resist approach. I usually spam skelletons and zombies 24/7. I use a spell totem fireball and spam firestorm and the fire curse. Its a ton of fun and I use the unique staff that adds +2 levels to fire gems which is now giving my fireball over 400 dps boost. It gets pretty crazy having that gem level mod when the gems are already so high as is (it takes millions of xp to lvl a gem now). I even got super lucky and made some lightning mod 3 link wands for my buddy who plays. Hes going to love those. Still enjoying this game a lot and getting in as much time as I can. I will probably start grouping up a lot more now because the loot is WAY better. Though i do enjoy soloing at my own pace. It's very challenging.
