Earlier this week, during the Steam sale, I excitedly texted my boyfriend “Titan Quest is on sale!”
He responded, “Isn’t that just Diablo, but worse?”
But in all seriousness, this is a very popular point-of-view in the gaming world. I may be biased because I played Titan Quest long before I even heard of Diablo–and also because I’m a little obsessed with mythology.
Titan Quest is a really fun RPG where you battle your way through mythological Greece, Egypt, and Asia. It was created by the same people who did Age of Empires, so you know it’s fun. Basically, you battle your way across these three worlds in order to destroy the titan Typhon, who has taken over the world and polluted it with mythical enemies.
It was basically the best part of my second semester of college.
1. It has a really great and intuitive mastery system.
2. It’s easy to pick up, and isn’t “broken”–i.e. the enemy difficulty and your own strength are fairly matched throughout.
3. The game is just about the perfect length, especially for busy people!
If you’re interested, you can check out Titan Quest on Steam. It’s currently 50% off!
