PoE has its flaws, sure. That does not immediatly mean the mechanics are bad. It also does not mean these mechanics alone can carry the game to make it a bestseller if the rest is missing. It is not all black and white.
A good game can still be received poorly due to people not liking the setting or writing, not because it is not a popular genre or mechanics anymore.
Regarding DOS2, it is considered a good game despite those mentioned mechanics, not because of them.
