So I'm hovering over 2 games right now. (Already bought Grim Dawn and loved it) They are Victor Vran and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Which one would you guys recommend? Which has better end game content and randomlized loot? Don't really care too much about story too. Many thanks in advance.

VV and VH are C-tier ARPGs tbh. B-tier would be D3 and MHO (now shut down) and A-tier would be GD/PoE.

If you said you loved Grim Dawn, you'll most likely enjoy Path of Exile too.

I haven't played Vran but Van helsing part 1 and 2 are fantastic.

Path of exile is not for me because progression is heavily depended on trading with other players and the 1000 types of currency to keep track of.

It's a shame because I would love to play trough the new story, I just can't deal with the crap.

That's quite an exaggeration though lol, on both fronts
- If progression was truly gated behind trading, the SSF (Solo Self Found) mode wouldn't be viable.It clearly is when you check the ladders for them
- There's about 15-20 types of Currency IIRC, not 1000.

Torchlight II is pretty cool. Titan Quest is cool (same developers as Grim Dawn). Path of Exile is decent. Those are the only ones I'd recommend outside of Diablo.

If you have consoles, Champions of Exile and Baldur's Gate are pretty good.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.

Victor Vran is actually not as randomised. You still get different loot and face different monsters, but all the levels are the same. If you visit an area multiple times, you will always find the same corridors, hallways, layout, etc. However, when running an area, you can enable different curses which can spice things up a bit - they give buffs to the enemies or debuff you, in exchange for a higher drop rate and stuff. In addition, each area has optional challenges you can do and even more will be unlocked as you progress - these can range from "Kill X enemies in Y minutes" to "Run this with X amount of curses on and don't get hit".

The game also relies a bit more on your skills as you can do stuff like leaps off walls to avoid getting swarmed. Your weapons also quite drastically change how you fight - each type has a unique attack pattern, so you have to be prepared to utilise them properly - a scythe can do double damage if you time your attacks right, while a rapier pierces armour but also has a slight delay in one of its attacks, yet that one does more damage.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, however, is more "traditional" in a way. It's also really close to Torchlight, which is another game you can check out.

Van Helsing is a pretty decent game if you can get it on sale. I wouldn’t pay too much for it though since it’s kind of short. Definitely would recommend Titan Quest if you haven’t played it. It’s from the same developer as Grim Dawn
