Those games were also designed from the ground up to be played solo, so enjoying playing them in that fashion should not be a surprise

No, they are designed exactly like all 3 Diablo games, ARPG's with a Single Player story line that can be completed by a single player with optional coop. Torchlight 1/2, TQ, and Grim Dawn chose to not have online DRM, that's the only difference.

Playing D3 solo is really selling the experience short IMO... there is much to be gained in the "phat lewts" department (through kill speed and efficiency) by playing with a full group of players.

PoE is designed in basically the same fashion, playing it solo is almost making the experience more difficult for yourself for no reason

Saying that playing a game in a certain way is selling it short is a complete opinion and not a reason for an online DRM scheme. PoE can easily be beaten in SP, doesn't make it harder by playing it that way, not sure where this comes from.

Yes, playing coop, whether on a LAN or internet IS fun, no doubt about it, it's a great option to a single player game.
