When scanning over the GOTY thread I noticed that a lot of us didn't pick Diablo 3 in our top 3s including me. Leading up to the release I was expecting Diablo 3 to be one of my favorite games from playing the beta. This weekend I finally picked up Torchlight 2 from the Steam sale thinking that it would blow me away unlike Diablo 3, and I'm feeling lukewarm about it. I think Torchlight 2 is better in some ways: character customization, random world, and loot. But there are still some areas of Diablo 3 that I enjoyed more: class definition, enemy and boss design, and combat flow. I think Torchlight 2 is better then Diablo 3, but it's not so much of a grand slam but more of a slight edging out. Most of my FL who played both games is from here and I'm curious as to where everyone's preference lies. If anyone's interested, I'm going to work on a more in-depth comparison over the weekend and probably put that on my site next week and I could post a link when it's done.
