Is the basic gameplay essentially the same for Torchlight, Torchlight 2, Diablo 1, 2, 3, Dungeon Siege 1, 2, 3, etc.?

Never played these games before, but I've watched a few videos and honestly it's hard for me to tell them apart. I suppose the Torchlight environments look a little more brightly colored, and Dungeon Siege seems to have larger character models.

I would like to better understand what it is that makes these games so popular. The footage I've seen looks incredibly boring, for all of these games. Is it some form of game mechanic reward loop that people are hooked on? That poor Taiwanese guy, how could he play this type of game for 40 hours?
