Hrm, I also remember at the time literally everybody saying it was a shittier diablo clone.  Thus why I never bothered.  May give it a whirl at some point if the expansions made things better.

I liked TQ, especially with the expansion.  I think it's worth picking up on Steam, if you haven't played it.

One thing that kills it for me is the static maps though.  I prefer Diablo's attempts at same style of layout, with some randomization.  That's only a problem if you want to roll multiple alts though.

I do remember Schild loving it.  I never understood why, so I ain't going to bother reinstalling it now, especially since PoE tends that itch just fine.

Better than Torchlight and PoE?  I'm not sure about that one.  I played a lot of TitanQuest.  It's a good game, but utterly forgettable.  I'm hoping that Grim Dawn will eventually be the better clone.  They just need to incorporate a few of the mods first.

Does the expansion add anything to the base game? I've never played it, but I was wondering if I ought to buy Ragnarok too and start from the beginning. If it only adds new zones at end/late game, there's no need to buy it yet.

Torchlight never reached half it's potential.

My thoughts on PoE are well documented. Titan quest is the better feeling of the two by miles.

I loved TQ, played through it once. The ancient Greece motif did something special for me, since it was around the time I was studying it in college.

Spent $4 on this today just top re-live the nostalgia. 

Love the greek motif.  Love the story and immersion.  Enjoy the dialogue. 

Forgot how much Grim Dawn ripped this off. 

Needs more LOOTY LOOT!

Yeah, it's much the same team for the two games, I believe.  It's why I had hopes for Grim Dawn.

Ah, interesting.  Grim Dawn has been my favorite of all the Diablo clones (though I haven't tried PoE for several years now, so maybe its improved drastically).  I'll give it a try based on that alone.

^That's a pretty solid build guide. I had a lot of fun with Storm/Warfare (Thane), though I'm not sure how 'end build' quality stands up.

I've been having my best luck with a spear hunter.  Something a little tanky seems easiest at first.

this was an amazing diablo clone, loved it, the over the top ragdoll back when that was still pretty new amused me for hours.

necro new content for it is a super unexpected surprise

Must be pretty rusty, I started a game out pure Warfare and got absolutely wrecked by the early centaur boss.  Restarted and went Defender instead, got through but just barely.  Everything seems much smoother after that.

You’re not rusty, that first boss has always been ridiculously untuned and build dependent.

If you don't pick up a good weapon by the first boss, he will regen faster than you can damage him.  It's oddly tuned.

It's hard for me to go back to Titan Quest nowadays. The start just feels so incredibly slow going, even more so than most other Diablo-likes. Minutes into Diablo 3 and I'm doing cool shit, and the cool shit in PoE comes a couple of hours in. A couple hours into Titan Quest and I'm still using basic melee attacks with maybe some kind of toggle skill.

About a month back, yeah. Two new masteries. Two new acts. General "more of everything" type improvements. Personally, I played about half an hour of Titan Quest and switched over to GD instead. I'm sure I'll eventually go check out the new TQ content, but other than actually having non-muted colors in its palette, I don't see what the selling point for TQ is over Grim Dawn other than more nostalgia.
