Since I took a look at a spiritual successor to Diablo 2 I figured I might as well take a look at the actual successor. Unlike Path of Exile however, I really can’t think of too much that draws me to Diablo 3. This makes me especially sad since I waited in great anticipation for its release, playing Diablo 2 over and over again in the meantime. I paid full price for it. I paid for a copy for a friend to play with me! That is how much I wanted to continue my Diablo 2 fun in Diablo 3, but I ended up losing interest and dropping the game extremely quickly. You can maybe discount my analysis because I haven’t gotten much actual game time in, but I would argue that it isn’t my job to persist at playing a game until it is fun, it is instead the game’s job to keep me interested in playing.

Game Analysis: Path of Exile
I like Path of Exile and I hate Path of Exile. This game is everything I loved about Diablo 2, but it also amps up the parts of Diablo 2 that I was not a fan of. It is an action-RPG title that experiments with excess, and by doing so has given me all sorts of mixed feelings.
