Keypoints from article:

Diablo III: Internet Only | Torchlight II: Internet? What Internet?
Diablo III: Easy does it. | Torchlight II: Time for another level!
Diablo III: Pre-ordained skill trees. | Torchlight II: You choose everything.
Diablo III: Very limited skill combinations. | Torchlight II: Choose your own play-style.
Diablo III: No fishing. | Torchlight II: Fishing.
Diablo III: No pets. | Torchlight II: So many pets.
Diablo III: Lots of loot. | Torchlight II: Insane craploads of loot.
Diablo III: Normal = Always doable. | Torchlight II: Normal = You may even get stuck.
Diablo III: Some potions. | Torchlight II: All of the potions.
Diablo III: Not very punishing. | Torchlight II: Not very punishing, in a different way.
Diablo III: Want loot? Buy it! | Torchlight II: Want loot? Play the game!
Diablo III: Decent bosses. | Torchlight II: Excellent bosses.
Diablo III: Linear, fast-paced narrative. | Torchlight II: Feels more exploration-based.
Diablo III: Silly, cockamimi story. | Torchlight II: Somehow even more nonsensical.
Diablo III: Mostly forgettable sidequests. | Torchlight II: Lots of sidequests, mostly meaty.
Diablo III: Get your mitts off our game! | Torchlight II: Please, mod our game!

I didn't play Torchlight II yet, but I don't doubt for a second all that is true.

Just curious OP, why are you trying to advertise the game for them?

I'm not saying either game is better in any sense. Hell, TL2 might be an amazing game. But why can't you just look forward to it and play it?

Seeing as it is probably my favorite game of all time, I could make threads advertising Dark Souls and why everyone should play it. But I don't, because, quite frankly, I don't try to shove what I like onto other people.

There's some really strange psycho-cology going around on these boards..

I have to ask, what is this based off? TL2 beta? Does anyone remember D3 beta, and how everyone !@#$ing loved it too?

I do.

Wel.. some of these point are very subjetive...

Diablo III: Pre-ordained skill trees. | Torchlight II: You choose everything.
Diablo III: Very limited skill combinations. | Torchlight II: Choose your own play-style.

I like the D3 customization.. idk

Diablo III: No fishing. | Torchlight II: Fishing.

So.. why is that interesting? (really, because the only fishing i know is the WoW fishing. OH GOD WHY?!)

Diablo III: No pets. | Torchlight II: So many pets.
Diablo III: Some potions. | Torchlight II: All of the potions.

It's just gameplay design...

Diablo III: Decent bosses. | Torchlight II: Excellent bosses.

I liked d3 bosses...

Belial was the only boss that was somewhat difficult and that was because you would die instantly if you had a lag spike due to the always online DRM.
