    D3 was slightly better at launch.  Now?  It's not even close.  D3 is vastly superior on every level.

    ....in your opinion.

     

    Hey, Some people like simple consolofied games with childish graphics, little build diversity and RMT (OK at least they finally took the last thing out after a year or two.)  Oh don't forget a single-player game that requires you to be always online for no reason. 

     

    Personally I'm happy I never wasted money on D3. Wouldn't touch that shit if they gave it away free. PoE on the other hand I'd strongly consider paying for if they asked.

    I agree, minus the last 3 words in the title.

    And despite that opinion, it is still superior to D3.

    although i havent played D3 i would prefer D3 over PoE for two reasons.

    1) The console version with gamepad controls and not point and click.

    2) The console version has offline mode so i if the servers die i still own and can play the game.

     

    PoE is a very solid ARPG. Despite me hating point and click, PoE is a fun game. But for those two reasons alone i would choose D3 (obviosuly the console version only)

    See, thats the point of the whole thread. You prefer a modern, easy mode game created by economics. While the hardcore crowd that played flight simulators with 7 years because it was cool in the 90s wants something that is cool

    point and click doesnt make a game more hardcore. To me personally only make it annoying to control. But both are different gameplay options, same game, same difficulty. If Blizzard made the console version easier then well that sucks...... but controls arent the reason behind it.

    Offline mode doesnt make a game any more casual either as long as the difficulty is there. As for the economics, well if im purchasing a game that is not an mmo service then i expect to own the game. And if the servers ever die i still have a playable game that i paid for (offline mode).

    That has absolutely nothing with what he said at all... Do you people even bother reading thru and understanding what people write here? This is a matter of gameplay style preference, hes clearly not a fan of the point and click and this has nothing to do with D3 being more modern. Being modern is very subjective, technically poe is much more modern with its graphics engine and overall depth of the game. On the other hand, D3 is following this new ``modern`` casual trend with its stylized graphics, shallow gameplay.

    If anything, D3 is the cool thing to play since its blizzard crap and overall popularity.

    Anyway, i havent played poe in a long time but i still consider it being ONE of the BEST indie game of all time.

    That is fine, but there is no reason for them to develop the game around such a feature.   It artificially inflates damage values under the assumption that if it is too much for a player, then they just log out.  Unfortuneately, this leads to their current development of the game where all character builds are limited to max defensive stats.  It isn't possible to build a more offensive character with a weakness because they will be instantly one shotted.  

     

    That was in the past when I last played and I have no idea if they have changed the way things are.

    I laughed so hard to this. So if you're using mouse and keyboard that game is hardcore. But if you're using your gamepad you're just a casual gamer? Please tell me what you're drinking? I want it too... Only games that casual on consoles are fps games. That's all. You make me laugh big time thanks a lot...

    I got around 100 hours on Diablo 3... and that is being generous.

    2k+ hours on POE and I still come back when new patches come out.

    At least his opinion is based on playing the game which makes his have more value than yours. I played both games and had fun with both. I did find D3 to be a higher quality game which puts it ahead of P3 for me.

    IMO diablo 3 is by far the best ARPG on the market when you take the emotion out of hating blizard or hating all things mainstream.

    POE is a good game and it's free, definitely the better value but other than that it just doesn't stack up in many ways.

    if POE featured pvp similar to what D2 had or even totally in the open, now that would go a long way and make me want to play POE over D3.

    I hate opinion or statements without any reason why .    Everyone has a opinion!  Now why exactly is Diablo3 better than POE?

    So you are saying POE is better then D3 because......no reasons given other then that POE has desyncs?

     

    Solid statement, well done.

    Solid indeed..

     

    POE is great, but Diablo has done some great changed to it, bringing in the Seasons etc.

     

    Both games are good in their own way..

    PoE has better theorycrafting.

    D3 has better gameplay.

     

    End result is that I follow PoE's forums and patches while playing D3.

    LOL!

    I enjoy both games, but I play D3 more simply because it's much easier to come back to.

    With Diablo I get to jump right back into the action with minimal fuss, but with PoE I usually come back and wind up looking at a respec with an expression of pure dread while I try to figure out what "path" to choose on that huge spiderweb of a skill tree.

    If I mess up that free respec because I'm rusty, it'll be on me, and respeccing again is a HUGE pain in that game due to the stupid tokens you need. Starting a new character is out of the question too, since I'd have to theorycraft for hours and settle on a build I want to pursue before spending my skill points.

    So the last couple of times I've tried to return to PoE I wound up logging off again within an hour of playing and turned to another game instead. =/

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    for everything you just wrote about..i have never had these issues...maybe you need a new computer..as for the graphic..path hands down wins...the textures are better..the animations are better....and you can see everything clearly.....the game is hand down much better then d3.....and its a free to play game giving it a huge advantage over d3....so for all the trouble your having i think its system related...i've never had any of those issues..
  • SaluteSalute Member UncommonPosts: 794
    Despite i think D3 has more quality as a game, i enjoy PoE more. I m 550 Paragon at D3 but i have played way less hours than PoE. Imho if PoE had the graphics & animations of D3 it would be a real blast.

    I swear, people do this on purpose.

    Path of Exile has been my primary online game, for quite some time now and I love every second of my gameplay. - No, Path of Exile does not blow Diablo III away. They have their cons and pros, they both are great games and as a fellow ARPG lover, I have played and have been playing both.

    For the love of Inanna, stop comparing similar games and just enjoy what they have to offer.

    PS - Check out Grim Dawn.

    Same! I  mean POE is great, but D3 really does have the "X-Factor". Same goes for Destiny. It's like mindless fun at it's best. There's really nothing wrong with that, either. I think that if people are looking for something deep in theorycrafting, POE is great. You're totally right, though, the few times I've tried to re-pick-it-up, I found the respec to be daunting and draining. So you usually just end up looking up specs online, so the theorycrafting is very limited.

    I think D2 LoD is still superior to both these games (D3, PoE). The way I see it, it is D2 LoD>D3 RoS>PoE.

    D3 is too shallow comparing to D2, in my opinion.

    One of the biggest mistakes, in my opinion, was to make an easily attainable level cap set to lvl 60 on the contrary from hardly reachable level 99 in D2. They tried to mitigate it by adding endless paragon levels which was a decent solution, but still inferior to D2 level cap design. Levels above 60 (70 in expansion) have no link to skills which is why it is not as good as in LoD where you can boost your skills and powers till level cap.

    Another mistake in my eyes was to omit skill trees which made each run through D2 special even if you played the same character while forcing you to make meaningful decisions. Now you can just switch whatever you like whenever you like. I understand that it appeals to many people, but I just believe that Diablo was never meant to be a casual game.

    D3 also completely lacks things that significantly increased depth of D2, such as Rune Words and especially the Horadric Cube.

    For me, D3 is an action arcade fantasy game, while D2 is an actual RPG built around character development. With the things D2 had to offer, you could make your character truly unique which is what makes RPGs so great for me.

    I realize I sort of left PoE out of this post. I think it is a good game, but inferior to any Diablo game out there.
