So lemme start by saying this: I was a huge D2 junky back in the day. One of the first REAL computer games I ever got as a kid. Diablo 2 and Starcraft were my first online multiplayer experiences. D2 holds a very dear and cherished part of my heart.
Simply put, I was disappointed with Diablo 3... it just didn't grab my attention. I did not feel that same drive to keep going after beating normal mode as I did in Diablo 2.
Granted, I have not played Reaper of Souls yet, and I haven't even booted up Diablo 3 since around when it first came out.
All I play these days is competitive Starcraft 2. I occasionally play Planetside and I've recently become obsessed with Star Citizen. I've also tried a bit of FireFall.
I got the Diablo itch and almost bought Reaper of Souls after hearing how much better it had made D3 along with all the other patches that have occurred since it was first released.
I downloaded Path of Exile with very low expectations. Simply put again, I'm having a blast so far!! I've got a friend with me and we've done everything together up until act 3. This is where we got to the FFA arena. If I had better gear I feel like I could sit in that FFA arena for hours lol.
To answer your question invadertim, so for I am really liking PvP. My buddy and I dueled about every 5 levels to see who was getting better as we went along. The PvP is definitely loads of fun. I can see it getting very complex and competitive at the higher levels.
I really like PoE so far in general, though I'm not that far into it. It feels more like Diablo 2 than Diablo 3 does, and I like that.
Don't worry, it gets better the further in you go, Raine

Been playing Path of Exile all this week. When I solo I have decent FPS but when I join groups I start to lag. Will be getting a better video card soon. Something mid range. But as a Gamer with a 5 year old PC I say POE is a good game to play.
I'm not sure what is new content but overall is a game which is going to stay installed for sure.
