Also, I'm thinking that some of the folks providing opinions didn't actually play the game. Honestly,some people sound like they are just making shit up.

I started with Daggerfall, every TES game took a step FORWARD in the genre. ESO is stepping 13 years backwards and bringing nothing new and rehashing a lot of old. So it isn't even like TES in that regard either, seems as if it only has the name and little else.

 

Perhaps everyone who played DaoC should crawl back under the "I don't know jack about The Elder Scrolls series" rock because they are the ones that are making the most excuses.

Its rather simple. If you changed the name of the game, the names of the npcs and places, would it feel like a TES game? No. It would feel like DaoC though. Now if you took Asherons Call, chaned the name, npcs, places and the graphics slightly to ESO, it would feel more like TES than ESO does. That's the problem, the gameplay isn't TES, just the names.

You can change the names all you want it wont matter, when the first leaked screenshots came out before ANYONE knew there was even an ESO game, the second  you see those screens i ( and most fans as well) knew instantly  it was an elder scrolls game, no way around it, end of story.

 I started with arena  and i am with many  other ES fans when i say the game has been taking giant leaps backward ever since MW ( which was the best hands down).

So you based your entire opinion of a game being like another, based on photos.

wow, hit a whole new level with that one.

The word many can be applied to 10 people. And judging by what is being said on most TES fan sites including the Nexus which has around 500,000 members, that's about how many agree with you.

Guess that's what happens when you form an opinion based on photo's eh? doh! photos, lol.

I think your lost, you said if you took away all the names you wouldn't know what game it is, i strongly disagree, and that's the end of it.

I never based anything solely on the photo's, you fully misunderstood me .

Good day sir.

All MMORPG's come with something taken from other games. The very idea of producing an MMO is a rip off, but they are pieces of history and just like all things we learn from the one before, gather ideas about what we liked about them, and implement them in other things. Exp: Sharp rock+stick=sharp steel blade. I played a lot of original EQ and a WHOLE more other MMO's. I won't name a number, but i'm comfortable with saying i've got an issue. So everything in some way shape or form, has something from another game. I figure it's the way that they present it. If one does it this way, but makes it look like this or that, or function differently. Why not? Generally things that work, will work fine again, it's all in the way your slight of hand works that makes it a magic show. I've played this beta,and i gave wow a shot, for about a year. This has a decent feel, and like the other games ill give it a shot. I'm going to treat this like any new game. Look for new things, see if there is any improvement on past ideas, and have fun. There is no WOW clones out there. Wow set a bar, and it's given every game something to build to. For as much as i dislike the game. It did well,and still does decent. Always remember, there was a rock before there was a tank. =0)

Yep, clearly misunderstood you. Who is lost again? Cant keep your lies straight is what it is.

Also, you have said nothing about the gameplay that makes it TES. So yeah, take the names away and it cannot be confused with a TES game. PROVE ME WRONG. State ONE thing about ESOs gameplay that is TES that hasn't already been proven not to be.

And yet Shroud of the Avatar and EQ: Landmark are making massive changes, hell even SWTOR, the bad game that it is brought in SRPG storyline advancement and the heavy instanced quests that looked almost exactly like KOTOR. If an MMO isn't breaking new ground, its just more of the same and seeing as how many MMOs that have been pure garbage the last 5 YEARS because they were mostly the same, I don't see a defense for yet another to come out doing it as well.

And the best thing about it all, the majority of people here defending it for being old style, are or have been complaining about the genre being stagnant.

I have no idea what your talking about, as long as i am  in a world that looks like TES and killing creatures based on TES lore that i have killed in ever other ES game, doing quests based on ES lore, reading books based on ES Lore  meeting people based in TES lore, exploring the world of ES, then im playing a  ES game, no way around it , and from what we have seen on the website and the videos that are everywhere, ESO meets every single one of those .

I played NW & as soon as the tutorial dungeon was over, I vomited.

ESO has the opposite effect on me.

I can make no connection between the two. ESO felt like an old friend while NW felt like that kid from high school that never fit in because he tried too hard to be cool.

Everything you just said is based on graphics and names thus proven what I stated correct. Take away the names and its gone because the GAMEPLAY isn't there. And to think, you went through all that trying to prove me wrong only to turn around and say everything to prove me right. For you its all about names and graphics, the only thing the game has that is remotely TES.

BTW its already been proven they changed the lore to fit their base PvP game design. The lore states that the empire was only attacked ONE time after the assassination of the last protector and that attacked was stopped at Marrowind. Septim is the one that conquers. Lore = broken.

lets see, joined today, made 11 hater posts allready.

nuff said on that

elder scrolls is not like neverwinter, its like elder scrolls, with a bit of daoc, a-la three faction combat thrown in.

deal with it haters, i've always said, it doesn't matter what you say, if people want to play something , they will play it, the small minority of people who post  on these forums, out of the vast majority that play mmos, will dictate weather something is good or not.

 

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

I can make no connection between the two. ESO felt like an old friend while NW felt like that kid from high school that never fit in because he tried too hard to be cool.

There is no connection.

 

Some people just have to show us their disgust for ESO every chance they get. So they pick a MMO that they think everyone dislikes to compare it too.  Neverwinter, SWTOR, GW2, WOW... take your pick.

ESO has the opposite effect on me.

Pretty much this ^

There are almost no features from the previous Elder Scrolls games that aren't present in TESO. The game may not be identical to MW, or Oblivion, but it doesn't need to be. It's a new game, with most of the staple Elder Scrolls features set in a massively multiplayer setting. In short, it's Elder Scrolls the MMO. Exactly what was promised.

To be honest, it still baffles me how vehemently numerous people want to bash this game. It's almost never a simple 'i didn't enjoy it, because of X'. No, people seem to need to contrive some made up excuse for why this game is either 'pure crap', or 'not an elder scrolls game'.

Well, I'm sorry, but the game is looking to be good (once they iron out the bugs), it's 110% elder scrolls, and I have yet to see anyone make a valid argument for features that should be in the game, would work in an MMO setting, and aren't there currently.
