Get your grind on.

Top 10 Best Loot-Heavy Games That Will Eat Up Your Time

Diablo

Of course we’re going to kick this off with the king of loot-driven games. Diablo. Diablo II is the classic, but Diablo III is the way to go if you want a more modern touch. Either way, you’ll be grinding away for the opportunity to grind a little faster the next time. Diablo is addictive in bursts, you’ll eventually get bored, take a break, and then the allure of new gear will draw you back in all over again.

Borderlands

Top 10 Best Loot-Heavy Games That Will Eat Up Your Time

Borderlands made FPS-RPG games cool way before Destiny ever did. Like many of the games on this list, you’ll be blasting your way through difficult enemies and rewarded with a shower of sweet, sweet loot, and praying that you get something you need for a set that you’re building. As an added bonus, Borderlands 2 in particular has quite the entertaining story as well worthy of a play through for any fans of loot-heavy games.

Destiny

Speaking of Destiny, both the original and its sequel are fun, modern, loot driven games. There are a ton of high-level guns to collect and fans of the more hardcore content, AKA the raids, will enjoy the challenge putting together a set that gives them the best chance of survival in difficult encounters.

Torchlight

Torchlight is one of the classic Diablo clone success stories. Torchlight thrived in the dark age of Diablo III where Blizzard was still tweaking with the formula to get it the point where it is now (aka fun). Both Torchlight and its sequel are excellent games to play through if you’re looking for something different and off the beaten path.

Path of Exile

Path of Exile is another more modern Diablo clone, and his heavily inspired by Diablo II, for better or for worse.

The Elder Scrolls

All of the modern Elder Scrolls games are quite loot heavy in their own right. While you’ll eventually get the best craftable armor after some grinding, there’s lots of hidden powerful weapons and armor hidden away in dungeons and lengthy side quests. Also, many items can be enchanted, giving you more incentive to collect lots of gear and experiment creating new fun equipment sets.

Warframe

Warframe is compared to Destiny. While it lacks the Bungie polish when it comes to its gameplay, it doesn’t skip the loot. Plus it has a ton more content to play through if you don’t mind a grind.

Fallout

Like the Elder Scrolls, the Fallout series is all filled with loot. Fallout 4 in particular not only has you discovering guns and equipment as you play through, but also has you collecting anything you can find that you could use to potentially build up a new civilization through its housing and city building mechanics.

Grim Dawn

Grim Dawn is another attempt to recreate the magic of Diablo. It was in development for quite some time, but by all accounts appears to have been worth the wait. And yes, of course, there’s loot, and lots of it.

Final Fantasy XI
