I prefer choices and control over my progression arc. Not being spoonfed. coddled and handholding. And then lied to about what i know to be or remember as "Fun". PoE destroys D3 in this area.
Obviously, upgrades become less and less commonplace as you reach the endgame in any game. But in PoE, again, you have choices. Ive found or crafted all of my gear and it was MUCH more rewarding than trading or auctionhousing it. Some players like this..
I guess it comes down to opinion but i fail to see how this:
..is dated antiquated graphics that D3s "warm-n-fuzzy KunFu Panda" look trumps.
Heres the tall and short of it.. I went ahead and paid for some of the micratransactions in PoE (Bank Tabs and Character Slots) and at the end of the day.. I dont feel shafted. I dont feel like the devs are lying to the playerbase at every turn. Taking their money and not listening to any of their feedback. Dropping "Ooh look.. a shiney" distractions like a 900 page MF Swapping thread. They arent stealth nerfing every other aspect of the game and outright lying about it or disguising it behind their interpret as "Fun"
What you see is what you get and the developers of PoE arent treating their playerbase like crap while outright lies spill out of their heads to protect their "business model"
