Path of Exile comes closest to replicating the factors that made the original diablo a success but the loot system and the poor combat means it's longevity is going not be as good.
The reason diablo 2 worked so well is the combat was more involved then what all the ARPG's so far have done. TL2 was especially boring where a majority of the attacks just feel like re-skinned basic attacks.
What's wrong with the loot system and combat? The combat is definitely more interesting than most ARPGs. The only thing that I think really needs improvement is the monster reaction animations.
