Diablo 3 vs Path of Exile - A Side By Side Analysis from Someone Who Loves Both Games

D3 vs. PoE: In this video they do a full side by side comparison of the Action RPGs Diablo 3 and Path of Exile. Debates about the superiority (or inferiority) of certain games can run pretty rampant in small genres such as this but the truth is that both Diablo 3 and Path of Exile are excellent games, they are just very different games. Hopefully after watching this video you are able to easily make the decision about which of these games is right for you.

This might be my last video this year so I wanted to make it a big one. If you think this video does what it sets out to do well then please consider sharing it with a friend (perhaps you know someone who isn't sure about which game to get).

If you are new to my channel I normally upload videos on a daily basis, most of them are either on Diablo 3 or Path of Exile but I also occasionally venture into indie games and other strategy/role playing games.

To sum it up:

Diablo 3:
  • Intuitive
  • Fluid - very polished
  • simple
  • low Customization
  • Defined roles
  • Simple Endgame
  • No PVP
Path of Exile:
  • Complicated
  • semi-polished
  • a lot of depth in complexity
  • Lots of customization
  • Freedom of choice
  • Simple Endgame
  • PVP
