    For those who say PoE is another brainless clickfest faceroll game obviously they haven't even attempted to play on the Hardcore League, or any of the other different leagues besides the normal Default Legaue. I guarantee you go into HC with that mentality and don't make wise decisions on your passive skill tree you won't last more than 10 levels if even that heh. Even on the default league you won't get incredibly far if you don't navigate the tree wisely with a good balance of defense and offense.

    As for it being a Diablo clone, it can be argued taht every game made to date is a clone of something else, which is pretty pointless. The fact of the matter is PoE is the same style of gameplay as Diablo games however adds many new mechanics and features that take the genre to awhole new level so I don't see how you can call it a clone. A clone is an exact copy of something else and PoE is by no means an exact copy of anything but rather it's own game that happens to fall under the same genre as the previous games it was inspired by.

    We do not classify Path of Exile as an MMORPG. It is a competitive online action RPG, and has little in common with games that are typically given the MMORPG moniker.

     Lets just say your idea of proof and my idea of proof is very different.

    All this proves is that this site lists many games, not just MMO's and many people are excited about PoE.  Anything related to MMO is strictly a supposition unsupported by your arguments. 

    Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

    People are just sad these days because once their MMO cherry got popped by the first special game all the rest feel just long and hard without any real charm.

     

    Yes... I had to do it... entirely too many threads with whiners who wouldn't know a good game from their own ass if you gave them a flashlight, a map, and a stern talking to about which way their ass was relative to the game.

    This is just proof that mmos are overrated and not the end all and be all of gaming.  You can throw in the Call of Duty franchise in as a great example.

    The problem is MMORPG.com..

    This website has lost sight of it's users and their games. It is now a one-stop marketimg gimmick.

    So,  I see you play Guildwars 2. How is your World of Warcraft clone doing? Fun I hope? Sorry, I just couldn't get over this to even get onto the topic. Pretty much that one term calling a game a 'clone' (which btw, is far from being like Diablo 2 compared to WoW and Gw2, even though it is NOT a clone) greatly harmed any bit of chance for civilized covnersation regarding the stagnation of MMos.

    Need I say more about these topics and their validity to anything excluding the rectal dysfunction these individuals must feel... not to mention the spinal trauma.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.
