Long development on games is a good thing usually, like you said it's worth the wait. I just wish they wouldn't announce games when they won't be out for year or longer, it's cruel.

Well you still gotta agree that it's longer than what gamers want.   
Which is like the day after release.

so far I've only seen boss fights and trailers on youtube (my laptop cant run it and i might get a pc soon) and the trailers made me want to jizz myself (but anything looks cool in a trailer). The perfect mmo would have:
-Live action (not like wow, where you auto attack and cast spells)
-open world
-preferably free (but that can be compromised)

if vindictus is not open world, then i'll pass

they were bad. for a variety of reasons. no mmorpg has even come close to topping world of warcraft, and even wow is merely mediocre in my opinion. I dont think theres such thing as a "great" mmo.
#124 to #108 - diqface (11/20/2012) [-]
I just feel like the Elder Scrolls Online is just going to be WoW, but in Tamriel, which I would not like. If it were like Oblivion ( with ******** graphics to compensate for server size), and you could just roam around in 1st/3rd person and attack manually like in the normal games, THAT would be legendary. Maybe there could be a large wilderness or something where you could build houses (multiple servers, obviously). Basically, if they could make Oblivion (or Skyrim or Morrowind) the same, but online, with periodically added content (quests, caves, mines, enemies, etc), and an arena for 1v1, I would never leave my house except to work to pay for the game, lol. I know this may be above our current technology, but I would rather wait for the best game of all time than have a mediocre WoW copy right now. Also... Skyrim-like Pokemon game.

I can't wait to see how terrible it is. I know it won't be a financial flop, because come on it's Elder Scrolls. But that won't mean it's good.
#86 to #74 - chunkeyninja (11/20/2012) [-]
from what i've heard about the alpha, its not looking as bad as i initially thought it would be. the PVP seems like its gonna be awesome, my only real concern is how it will play, if its too WoW like in terms of push button do a spell, then it will probably flop like SWTOR did
User avatar #102 to #86 - fuzzyballs (11/20/2012) [-]
they should keep the combat, and make it into a sword and blade MMO game, the game creates 9 nations, like there are 9 continents, a ******** of castles, towns and cities, and at the start of the game, you join someone else's army, and just follow him around, follow his orders, fight his enemies, you level up, get better equipment and **** , but it would still be possible to you know... die
THAT WOULD BE SO COOL

I'm going to drown in red thumbs, but unto the breach anyway.

All of you faggots going 'Oh, its gonna be **** ! Look at all these other games like it made by different people! They were **** , so obviously this will be too!', just shut up. Just because you spend your sad, unimportant lives playing video games all the time, does not make you an expert. You idiots do this about everything.
User avatar #166 to #145 - icefried (11/20/2012) [-]
You can live in your delusions if you want, but i call dibs on the first stone cast.
The problem with the MMO is that the elder scrolls games are, and always have been about the single player experience, not once in all my time spent in any of the elder scroll games did i wish that another douchebag could tag along.
The second problem is that the games are already rich with lore, which is bound to create a lot of contradictions (like the history books which failed to mention emperor "noobpwnzorrx"), also for any future elde scroll games the geography is pretty much set in stone, and they will most likely write themselves in a corner soon enough.
On the up side, the combat seems fun.. for melee anyway. The world looks amazing..
That's about it. The game will be fun to play for a (very) short while (for diehard TES fans at that), but i doubt it will become the most popular mmo any time soon.
In conclusion, this was a horrible, HORRIBLE idea.
#190 to #166 - brnoutmaster (11/24/2012) [-]
Ok the reason why there is no history book the mentions emperor whatever, is because it takes place before recorded time. thats why they selected this time in the history.
User avatar #168 to #166 - theshadowed (11/20/2012) [-]
Well, while the 1st is a valid point, I'm not seeing your logic behind the other 2? How would the lore make contradictions? The lands will obviously be scaled down anyway, so for future TES games, they can add alot
User avatar #175 to #168 - icefried (11/20/2012) [-]
You're asking how they will contradict themselves? Seriously?
It's a freaking mmo, it's bound to assrape the lore because they will be adding a bunch of new information which has never been addressed before in any previous games, now here's the kicker.
At some point they will start making expansions, what does that mean? New lore! Which means if they are in development of any other TES game or addon content, not only do they have to worry about not making huge plot holes for the MMO, the MMO has to do the same. Even though it is set a thousand years before the events of the current series, the actions of the characters will no doubt leave a trace.
Why do you think Blizzard stopped making warcraft games after their WoW?
And now for the lands..
The probelm with scailing down lands is that Tamriel is full of cities, towns, settlements etc. It's gonna take a lot of space to put them all in without them being back to back, and it would create lore improbabilites, and explaining that the towns or cities weren't there at the time creates more plot holes.
This is why you don't ******* make an MMO out of a well-established universe, and a third person RPG of all things.
This has to be one of the most idiotic things any game company has ever done and i fear it may bring about the demise of the series.
User avatar #178 to #175 - theshadowed (11/20/2012) [-]

User avatar #26 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
Why are young gamers so obsessed with TES?

I mean, I tried Morrowing, but it was simply TOO MUCH and TOO BIG for me. I would also really like to try Daggerfall, for sure.

But ever since I read that they brought SCALING system in Oblivion, I never understood how or why people take it seriously.

I mean, goddamn it, there are other RPGs out there who actually have a better storyline and make your choices actually matter...

User avatar #34 to #31 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
Look, how about you get your head out of your arse and provide me a legit answer?

Because I can write and give you literally pages as to why Oblivion and Skyrim fail as RPGs. I'm not saying they're not good games, just that judged as RPGs, they're a joke compared to Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, Gothic series and many others.
User avatar #68 to #34 - Crusader (11/20/2012) [-]
What were their "failures"?
Pretty sure they are ranked among the best RPG Video games out there.
User avatar #80 to #68 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
In my opinion (and not only), a RPG is mainly driven by 3 things:

- the main quest/story
- the characters
- the impact of your choices and consequences

Let's take for instance Gothic 1. It all starts with your simple task of delivering a letter to some mages, but it somehow realistically slowly puts you in the epicenter of the events, mostly due to a chain of reactions from events that you either triggered, were a part of or simply observed.
Most agree that nothing beats the social feeling that Gothic 1 and 2 give you. The fact that you start from scratch and even the smallest of creatures can easily kill you (I'm not even talking about NPCs, who will cut your throat in an instant, especially since most are grouped) and, making certain steps that you clearly feel (becoming a Shadow, then a Guard, if choosing the Old Camp, for instance) that will end up with you being on par with everyone else, at first; but starting from the late mid-game up to the end-game, you become powerful enough to take on any NPC that has abused or helped you in the past.
About your choices, even though certain events will always play out the same, how you end up triggering them more or less differs; also, you get a first hand view on how the relationships between the 3 factions interfere with the story (the whole breaking down of the Old Mine, leading to the decision of taking over the New Mine, etc.)
To end it brief, it's about a certain feeling of being involved, responsibility of your actions (I'm not even going to bring The Witcher 1 & 2 into discussion here...), the gravity of the events that are just somehow lacking in Dragon Age, Skyrim, Mass Effect (to a lesser extent) and other modern RPGs.
User avatar #36 to #34 - dremnus (11/20/2012) [-]
Ahhh, I see now. No, you are right, compared with what RPG actually technically means they're pretty far from that, but they are fun games.
User avatar #67 to #36 - Crusader (11/20/2012) [-]
Not really, RPG just means a role-playing game, which TES fits perfectly
#45 to #26 - fuckmyoldaccount (11/20/2012) [-]
Choices matter in Skyrim. Not as much as other games, sure, but if they did, Skyrim would already be more a horrific glitch orgy then it already is considering how everything would interact., but your major choice completely changes the current political landscape and the future of Skyrim.


But moving on, the main point of Skyrim is that it provides a stronger sense of exploration and immersion then any other AAA title ever, andc I doubt there are smaller ones to match the scale of the world.

Skyrim is not so much about the Storyline(Which was decent enough, more of a vessel to give you shouts).


However, about your point below in #34: Are you one of the ones who believe that every item must have several stats, every skill must have several levels, everything must fall into a archetype/class and so on?

If so, I feel that definition of RPG is becoming out dated, and just because newer titles don't follow that format in favor of focusing on the actual roleplaying part are just as much of RPGs and the traditional titles.
User avatar #48 to #45 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
Not necesarrily, but Skyrim just makes you feel to much like the king of kings, the slayer of slayers, the assassin of assassins, the ruler of rulers, the ****** biznitz, the alpha and the omega... and so on and so forth

It just seems to cater too much to kids' egos other than anything else, by making them feel, well, omnipotent, with little real challenge.
User avatar #66 to #48 - Crusader (11/20/2012) [-]
Well, that is the entire point to all TES games.
You are the Nerevarine, the only one who can stop Dagoth Ur and the Tribunal
You are the Champion of Cyrodil, the only one who managed to close an oblivion gate alone.
You are the MADGOD the only one able to stop Jyggalag
You are the dragonborn, the one destined to stop the dragons and master the thu'um

It's like every other video game.
Dragon Age Origins - You are the last of the grey wardens, the only one able to stop the Arch-Demon
Fallout 3 - You are the Lone Wanderer, the only one able to help your dad at project purity
Fable 1/2/3 - You are a Hero, the only one able to stop that evil lord dude.
Halo - You are master chief, the last of the Spartans, the only one able to stop the covenant
Gears of War - You are Delta Squad, the only ones able to stop the Locust/Lambent

People play games in order to escape reality, and they want to escape it into a world where they are bad ass.
User avatar #78 to #66 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
Yeah, but you see, there is a bit of straying in Skyrim even from other TES, to the point that it's so easy to become Master of All Guilds (really, they're not even exclusive to each other?), a extremely powerful Battle Mage that pew-pews everything with a bow.... it's just too much liberty, imo (not in the exploring the world sense, mind you.

And let's not compare the easiness of Fallout 3 (basically Oblivion in sci-fi setting) with Fallout 1 or Fallout 2, where you really had to think your character build, through TRIAL AND ERROR. IMO that's what missing in games in general, really; they like to offer way too much, if not all, on the first playthrough.

User avatar #72 to #26 - roflsaucer (11/20/2012) [-]
TES is less about storyline and control more about the general lore and the world you're in. The gameplay can still be pretty fun, but the best part would have to be learning about the world you're playing in, and admittedly this isn't for everybody. If you're looking for storyline and choice, TES games are really the wrong thing to play. In my opinion, the WORST part of Skyrim was the main storyline.
User avatar #81 to #72 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
Well that's what I'm saying, it's a bit of a sacrilege in an RPG, even though it's sandbox and lore centered, to make the main story THAT MUCH in detriment to the rest

User avatar #65 to #49 - Crusader (11/20/2012) [-]
That's not insane, and we are not as you say.
You basically insulted all the games, by only pointing out the bad things, I could easily take any series and make it look bad by pointing out the small stuff.
Morrowind is so massive, 10 years later, i am still finding new stuff
Oblivion scaling is to stop you from getting beat down because you are underleveled due to your skill choices.
And you are able to make choices, albeit not very different choices, but that's the way Bethesda RPGs work, don't like it? don't play it.
User avatar #83 to #65 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
"Oblivion scaling is to stop you from getting beat down because you are underleveled due to your skill choices"

Why? WHY do they have to make sure you're guided by the hand so that you can't fail?
IMO you're deprived of that huge sentiment of satisfaction when you finally beat some mobs guarding a certain part of the map after leveling up enough.
Worst part is, they brought the same scaling into Fallout 3. i remember that Fallout 1 & 2 were rather unforgiving as far as character development goes, which forced you to learn to make the right, intelligent choices (when I first heard that you can beat Fallout 3 just maxing out your melee skills and brutal fists I was disgusted, really).
THAT is the kind of catering I'm talking about. And it's on the borderline of the much-hated "dumbing down of games" that is an important problem in the last few years.
User avatar #84 to #83 - Crusader (11/20/2012) [-]
It's not that you can't be killed, it's to make it so you can do quests that you are given.
How bad would it be if you are level 5 and suddenly you are up against a level 13 monster?

If you like old games so much, go play the old ones, new games are less for gameplay and more for the plot, all I hear from you is nostalgiac complaining "Oh, games are too easy now a days" "The games are being dumbed down"
HEAVEN FORBID they make a game that everyone can play.

And BTW the games are near impossible if you play them on very hard difficulties.
User avatar #94 to #84 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
Oh and the fact that there are many, many players now that really enjoy Dark Souls/Demon Souls just goes to prove that most gamers actually want a challenge; that devs will consider their clients being with at least half of their neurons functional.
User avatar #93 to #84 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
What would happen in a level 5 vs level 13? I'd ******* RUN!
And come back when I'm at least level 10. Well, that's how you would normally do it.

And here's another thing: there are very few new games that feature a decent plot. Even Blizz managed to **** that up with Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 (I know I'm talking about different genres here, but the point still stands).
And the gameplay, most will tell you, was more well-made in older games because, like I said, you actually had to think a tactic or two before fighting

And I really started playing almost everything on Hard from the start. Even though I almost slammed my keyboard against the desk in The Witcher 1, at the end of Chapter 1 (those who played it know what I'm talking about), it was because I got cocky, mostly.
Ok, so a chain of events that you didn't actually know they lead to the boss fight that you have to go through over and over and over again every time you died didn't help (yes, it's such a poor game design choice to make the save point BEFORE the talk before the final fight, thank god for skipping dialogue)... but it was still my fault because I thought I was better than listening to some in-game advice and thought I'd manage anyways. I DID, eventually, but after several hours of trying again and again. And what a great moment indeed that was, proving that you can beat that portion the game even though handicapped, in a way.

There are many good RPGs that are just as good if not better than the elder scrolls, I guess people just get really immersed in the over arching lore of the series which I personally find really cool. Its an easy to like and enjoyable RPG for everyone, it isn't too stat based and doesn't have over the top RPG elements but it gets the job done and it's just really accessible. I like the elder scrolls a lot so that's me, and also coincidentally most gamers.
You know what my favourite RPG is though? Mount and Blade. **** is good

Hear, hear!
Now THAT is a Role Playing Game in it's true sense of word, where you actually CHOOSE what you want to be, an outlaw, a King, a King's Marshall, a trader, a warlord, anything!

Mount and blade 2 was announced recently so that's great. I don't know why but that form of RPG is just so appealing to me, I find that the stories that I make up for my own characters are just so much more interesting than anything a developing can dish out. Sucks that you got thumbed down, you sound like on of the few open minded people on here

An Elder Scrolls MMORPG will just be another generic fantasy MMORPG and will be about as successful as the Warhammer, Age of Conan or LoTR MMOs, which is to say it'll be underwhelming.

What makes the Elder Scrolls so successful is that it's a massive, immersive, single-player RPG, and Bethesda is the only company to make such games. ZeniMax is ******* themselves over by pouring money in to this project.

Bethesda is currently developing Fallout 4, so at least we'll still have the Fallout series. I don't think ZeniMax will have Bethesda make another single-player Elder Scrolls title, just as Blizzard has no interest in making another RTS Warcraft because of WoW.

immersive?
all you get is some over-the-top story quests that don't even take that long to complete, and the only thing that happens is that guards have some extra random lines, it's ****
I liked it better in morrowind, where you had to get a certain skill level before you promoted and got some more quests

Dude, just turn the difficulty up if you think quests are too quick.

1) it's on it's hardest, I set all my skills to 100 so I won't level up, I only use steel equipment, no perks, my health, stamina, and magicka are all still 100, but I do have 3 followers
2) I meant it as in when you do the mage quest thing, it only takes you 5 "go there, kill that/pick that up, come back" quests and you're the archmage, and what do you get? an extra random guard line, nothing happens to change the world

and if the MMO is going to suck (like they all do, remember the star wars or lord of the rings MMO? no, me neither), then they'll make an elder scrolls 6

Has anyone heard anything about the new Skyrim DLC? Apparently dragon riding will be a new thing.

Dark Souls is for masochists. I put down the game once I got to Ornstein and Smough. The game is just such a grind, and often doesn't feel challenging, but unfairly difficult.

I know what you mean, I only don't know why so much people reaches high lvls and I stay ****** unleveled while having to repeat same level again and again and again...

Don't get me wrong, I love Demon's and Dark Souls, but man sometimes it gets so ****** difficult you can do almost nothing.
