A heavily-modified World of Warcraft which removes the concept of classes, allowing the player to pick-and-choose abilities to create their own unique character. Another server has a random selection+choice concept which is very fun.

Has various challenge modes and the ability to rework a character back to level one for a reward.

While lacking some bits and pieces of convenience, it's really quite good. Has some expensive pay-to-win. It's ultimately not good because it has bonus experience available to all the players so there's no actual authentic world, it's just a bunch of overpowered characters smashing through everything; fail. Or play it single-player if you'd like..

Shoot stuff and things.

I played the open beta. I found it fun, but not worth money. When I was given it for free a while later, I didn't find it all that great.

Like all the other "safe" games Blizzard has been creating lately, Heroes of the Storm is an accessible MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game. Pretty, plays well, and reasonably fun.

I play a bunch of it, and like it. I don't PvP. The versus AI started out being really boring but improved a lot over time.

A fixed-angle-view roguelike.

My general conclusion is that it's a good game, but doesn't have enough variety of abilities.

Path of Exile - (2013 game) is better in terms of difficulty, complexity and player-immersion. In fact, Diablo 3 has been copying features straight from Path of Exile. Doing things badly, but, still, obviously copying.

A MMO whose defining qualities are its maturity, user base and low system-requirements.

Recently focusing entirely on endgame, to the detriment of all earlier content. Instead of improving the game in measurable ways, its developers use desperate psychology to string along its user base. DO NOT PLAY unless you're already playing. Then DO NOT STOP.

Once anything comes along that's decent, haul ass and bring everyone with you. Consider, for example, Guild Wars 2 - (2012 game).
