Torchlight 2 isn't bad and there are some decent mods, but I admit I've put more time into Titan Quest and Diablo 3 than TL2/TL1. Titan Quest is great with mods, by the way, much like Diablo 2 with mods is outstanding, after you get tired of the vanilla version.

Dungeon Siege... is an acquired taste. Each of the games was different enough that it's best to discuss them separately, imo. Dungeon Siege 1 was enjoyable to me purely from the ability to have an 8 person party in an ARPG, although some of the maps were just way to big and uniform. A thousand of the square head guys throwing rocks, in a vast underground plain? Ok. A massive winter wilderness full of wolves who need to get pin cushioned with arrows? Ok. I liked the smaller levels better, it just got annoying grinding through some of the outdoor zones.

Dungeon Siege 2, better combat model by far, somewhat crappy loot system, and the penalty of smaller parties. Still, a pretty interesting game, with a good pause/issue order combat system to make use of all your characters' abilities.

Dungeon Siege 3, the demo put me to sleep, couldn't bring myself to ever buy it, but every now and then I run across somebody who loved it. I subsequently shun those people.

Speaking of ARPGs, I hope you all have Grim Dawn on your radar. Even the Alpha version that's available now is pretty good, I'm looking forward to the full release.
