    Trying to get into a hack n slash game with an isometric view. Don't have much experience with them so need it to be less complicated than some as far as crafting/equipment goes. Any suggestions? I don't mind if it has rpg elements.

    Yes, but also one of, if not the most complex ARPG there is, and OP asked for something more on the simple/beginner side of things :)

    Season 21 for Diablo 3 starts this Friday too (around 8pm eastern time if I'm not mistaken, it's been a while since I checked the usual start time), good coincidence.

    I'd also recommend Titan Quest on Steam, pretty good game overall. And Torchlight 2 as well is alright, I'd still recommend Titan Quest over Torchlight though.

    If purely isometric isn't a must and you prefer simple hack and slash, Devil May Cry.

    The series is on sale on Steam and the latest (5) looks stunning too!

    Though "simple" as in not complex RPG elements but there's a lot to master combat / combowise.

    Thanks Guru's. I'll look into these titles and see which looks the most appealing. And possibly being on sale on Steam might help sway my choice as well.

    Yeah Bastion, how could I forget that. It is a great entry isometric ARPG, but more so, it is a peace of art itself. The hand drawn graphics, the voice over, the music:eek:..
    Man, Supergiant Games are an amazing dev. That reminds me, I will finally start Transistor today, but also received as BD gift Hades, which is somewhat of the next best thing ever for people into ARPGs and rouge likes.

    Wolcen was a decent game with some nice ideas, mediocre execution but still worth your time.
    Diablo III is still a good option if you don't mind the power-buffs\new sets patches ( very repetitive in my eyes ).
    Grim Dawn i actually enjoyed more than those two above when it came out. very enjoyable game.
    Darksiders Genesis seems like a hybrid adventure\action rpg with decent reviews. i didn't play\bought it so i can't review it.
    Path of Exile iv spent around 150 hours and i stopped long time ago. it's a good, deep game that i found very time
    demanding and most complicated from all the others i mentioned.

    enjoy!
