Well, that your opinion, but many of us here actually enjoyed DS2 and still do.

Except both Titan's quest an DS2 failed financially, i.e. they didn't have that addictive quality everyone cloning diablo was trying to replicate. Remember diablo was such a phenomenon it spread by word of mouth, it was so good you wanted other people to play it. That's why it became the juggernaut it was.

DS3's design was radically changed due to DS2's low sales in a bid to try to reboot the series.

The sales tell the tale that everyone trying to make ARPG's taking inspiration from diablo were making fundamental mistakes and not understanding why diablo was successful.

The only dev's that have truly understood diablo so far are the path of exile team. It's part of the reason why Path of exile has so many players and has such a high meta score. With TL2 not too far behind.
