Torchlight comes to mind. Highly mod able, a lot like Diablo if you've ever played either one. If you haven't Diablo II is a definite buy, but it is older.

I've really been considering that, but it looks like it was made in 1995(I know, i know gameplay > graphics, but i just cant get past it)

You make me disappointed =(. Anyway its in short a more casual version of classic rogue like games. Its easier... Better ui... You have the option of perm death or not... And its not made with 20x20 pixel blocks in paint or ascii characters. Anyway its worth the 5$

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel was pretty amusing. It's got pretty visuals and the gameplay and loot wanking is fun. Any game with an auto-loot circle radius button with rarity toggles is definitely awesome. Another one I'd check out are the Titan Quest games, you can get Titan Quest and Immortal Throne on the cheap on Steam as Titan Quest Gold. It's kept up surprisingly well over the years. Take a look :)

one if your willing to log the hours is guildwars. it takes a considerable amount of tiime to get to the dungeons but once you get there. there are some really nice set piece dungeons or dungeon like area's.

ill give you an example..

visually speaking guildwars has improved considerably since its launch but not leaps n bounds better and has stood up pretty well visually for a game that requires an hd 2400xt & any dual core to run on high

I'd love to start playing Sacred 2 again but it's the only game I can't seem to get running with Win 7. Pisses me off.

Din's Curse is an excellent dungeon crawler.

Nope, it's definitely not.

I recommend you get Temple of Elemental Evil. It's combat is turned based & the rest is real time, and its a perfect representation of DnD. The visuals are beautiful, and don't be fooled, it's nothing like Baldur's Gate.

There is no heavy focus on story, and each quest is a grand adventure on its own trough countless dungeons filled with difficult monsters and deadly traps. The addictive gameplay (being turned based doesn't make it slow at all), beautifully well constructed environments & incredibly detailed dungeons, and hard difficulty is the height of the game, not any story.

You'll get a strong sense of adventure because of its well constructed DnD atmosphere, and i definitely will assume that this game is what you're looking for. Oh, there's also a ton of loot.

Good suggestion. It's tactical turn based d&d combat though, def not any button mashing hack-n-slash here. Be sure to install the Circle of 8 modpack though (ver 6.0)

If you don't mind a little screen tearing, D&D Daggerdale is pretty good.

Then again I have it on the 360, so not sure if the problem is on the PC.

I'll vouch for Dungeons of Dredmor. Its pretty fun, but its a rogue like, meaning its hard, unforgiving, and should be played with Perma death on. Still, its a great game.

I came into this thread to suggest Dredmor, too.

In the past three days I've managed to rack up 20 hours in that game, and I still feel like loading it up again and rolling a new, completely doomed character. Totally loving it so far, and for $5 it's a steal.

You could give Dungeon Siege 1/2 a try. The third one came out a few months ago but I didn't care much for it.

Titan Quest + Immortal throne is again, a solid choice, probably one of the most entertaining Hack'n'Slash games to come out in a while.

Good to hear from both of you that it's as fun as it looks. I definitely plan to pick it up once I'm done with a couple of other games.

It really is as fun as it looks, and the humor is great as well (although I don't think the humor is as good as Cthulhu Saves the World). I'm enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would, and that's saying a lot, as I had pretty high expectations of it going in. Its a great rougelike without being too complex or too simple, its just right.

Here is a nice little list of games I put together. I don't think they have been mentioned yet in this thread.

Darkspore - Great combat system, weak story. You should try this one out.

Avencast: Rise of the Mage - This is a mage-based dungeon crawler. Not much story, but the combat system is very well done, and the graphics are acceptable.

Summoner - This game is a bit old, but I think the gameplay and graphics hold up. It is another mage-like hack'n slash game. Sadly, this one might be tough to find at a good price.

Nox - Great sense of humor and a good storyline for a hack 'n slash. This is probably another one that is tough to find at a good price.
