I was just looking around online at different games and this one was mentioned along with Diablo 3 and Path of Exiles. Has anyone ever play this? If so how was it compared to Path of Exiles, I have not played Diablo 3.

I also got another game called The Witcher 2. I know the 3rd game of this line is also out but I read that it is a good idea to play the 2nd game because it is very good, then the 3rd. Most people's posts said the first game although the story was good the combat system was pretty bad so they said to read about the first game as for the story and play the 2nd and 3rd games. Anyone play this one either?

A little late here, but I've been playing a lot of Grim Dawn. I played a lot of PoE as well, but I'm not sure how'd I'd compare the two.

What I really like about GD is there are tons of ways to build your character, and none are really "the best". In D3, there's pretty much a best for each class, with best gear. In GD you have lots of different options for gear and character build.

Grim Dawn is fantastic to play. It's great build and character diversity. Can pull off several builds with the different devo's and items.

Once you get done with the vanilla experience you can start trying out different mods. Some of which add like 20+ new classes/mastery combos. Up the difficulty, improve loot drops and what not. It's great. I play off and on, usually hardcore only. Waiting for Forgotten gods so I can start shield throwing my way arond!

I haven't even looked into the mods yet. After all these months of playtime, I've only got 2 chars so far, and only 1 at lvl 100.

And I've only scratched the surface of the Crucible mode. I mean, this game is so deep, I really wish we had more of a following from people here.

There's a decent amount that play off and on. Nothing consistent. And GD is more focused on SP.

Grim Dawn is fun, I have the base game plus current DLC, a new expansion is releasing in a few months I believe. More linear skill tree and abilities based on class vs POE's expansive build variety, but more than Diablo 3's limited choices. You can trade items but its more of a solo found/party trading system. Occasionally players will post trade lists of items they have and items they want on the forums. Has more of a D2 trade environment feel to it.

Yeah, I like that it's more a single player game. Still I'd like if we at least had a clan discord for people to chat and maybe trade.

For it to be a section we would have to get 20+ members to list it as their main game. Best bet is to advertise in RPG chat if looking to get a group going or trade stuff.

I've herd some good things about this game, I'll have to check it out. I liked Diablo 3 so GD sounds like it would be fun.

With the disappointing news about Diablo from Blizzard, I'd suspect more people might show interest in GD.

oh btw - GD has a new expansion coming sometime after the new year.

Were do we change where we list our game(s)? I saw the other day we had an update where we could now list 3 games, but I still can't find a setting in my profile to make changes.
