However, i think you have a great future in doing this for living and i would like you to make more videos. Keep up the good work.

I can think of a number of points which don't apply to any recent (as in the last year) mmorpg I am aware of, retical combat, and 1st person, Defiance and Planet side 2 has these, but are not mmorpgs, the 3 way pvp can be found in GW2 and RIft at 60, but both have issues that ESO may be able to avoid, we shall see. Fully voiced npcs applies to only 2 others I mentioned, but both lack most of the other features listed, and its how they combine I focused on. I can think of no other AAA mmorpg with retical action combat that works other than TERA, I wish there was more, and mega server tech is only just coming in to other mmos, the points I listed where ones I would seriously miss from other mmos if absent, so its that ESO alone has all and none other has even most that draws me to it.

I wish. (seriously though I know I have a too even tone, I need to develop a more conversational broadcast manner)

IDK if it is everyone's settings but the view distance seems terrible ,everything is always fogged out and LOD drops off mere feet in front of the players.Other than some weak animations due to limited vertices the rest of the game looks fine.

The only bummer for me is i always need to have a nice world to look at ,not 1080p but i don't like LOD being really low.The players look great up close everything else around the player looks dull.

I would have to say the mention of movement combat not needing to be so reliant on the keyboard is definitely a good thing,i hate looking at controls,i rather enjoy the game.However there is always a draw back,less control less depth,merely r-click or l-l-click then gets boring after a short while.I guess there will never be a happy medium just choose whatever game can hold your interest .

IMO TESO is doing a lot of things right but still not the game i am looking for.

I didn't notice these LOD issues, maybe they can work on it, it may be something they can optimize, and not a hard limit of the engine, I won't say there is any single game I am looking for, but ESO is the themepark that works on enough levels, as EQN looks like the king of sandbox I want. Its just that we are shortly to be spoiled for choice with sandboxes, ESO seems the last themepark left being made I can enjoy.

Great vid, great voice (god i would like to have a british accent)

You dont need to rely on any fluff or shallow rants like many others do in their vids. Shows just how much quality you have.

Keep it up!

I can rant when I need to, but I am hoping to find a niche as more of a voice-essay maker, something like "The MMO-Thesis" podcast.

Great video OP. It's nice to see someone make a video with a more clam voicetone.

As for your points, some i agree, some i disagree, mainly immersion and roleplay. Immersion for me in mmos is really tricky, but it gets worse when the game tries to make me feel special and unique, while other players are doing the exact same thing as me. 

As for roleplay, no chat bubbles is annoying for me. And rping in themeparks always felt abit difficult. BTW, is there really stealing? I know there's lockpicking, but i didn't see any steal mechanics.

Anyway, good vid, and wouldn't mind seeing some more in the future. 

I put some chat bubbles onto some of the footage in the vid at one point, people didn't like it, I think there's a tone developed that TESO players feel doesn't work with chat bubbles. Not sure if its needed these days, with voice morph and teamspeak, and who knows if other mmos may adopt EQN's style of facial motion capture.

 

As to stealing, there will be the Thieves Guild put in an early update, probably consisting of stealing from npcs for missions and a crime system, I imagine it would be rather hard to pull off for pvp.

Kind of like some others here have already said, I'm still not sold on ESO.  However that doesn't mean I don't "appreciate" your video and it's presentation.  I think you did a great job and  I can see you gaining a following of viewers if you continue to make videos.  Even if they are about ESO   (I have to get my jab in there).

Pretty cheap shot. I'm not sure how you got that, but maybe you have some type of distortion from your speaker system.

IMHO and most people here, we feel he did very well. 

OP,  you did better than many people could ever think of doing. Keep up the good work.

@ OP: Ignore the hate man!  There will be a certain amount of it no matter what you put on the internet.  Not everyone appreciates the work it takes just to make a 20 minute video that's well presented and entertaining (which I thought you did an excellent job of).  

 

@ everyone else: You can debate the points all you want, but at least give the guy credit for making a good video.

Thank you.

You could always play it in the background as the visuals are just accompaniment, these are the bullet points I used.

 

1   retical combat/character controls

2   speaking npcs

3   art style, colours, aids immersion,

4   1st person mode

5   varied difficulty crafting

6   story

7   decisions made during conversations

8   pvp, sieges and massive numbers

9   open progression, roles, gear and weapons

10   multiple classes and factions for alterholics

11   3 factions rather than 2

12   minimal UI

13   established Lore

14   sub not f2p

15   rpg mechanics such as lockpicking and thieving

16   the engine

17   smaller hotbar

18   mega servers

19   exploration

20   IMMERSION

21   *Bonus Reason *   large amount of content at launch

 

I go into detail and compare with other mmos, but I kept it brief, could have used a lot more examples, but the length appears to be popular.

That poster did say he won't watch the vid. We can't force people to watch if they don't want to lol.

Great vid! I agree with many that the commentary was awesome; you've got a good voice and delivery for this kind of thing, me thinks. I had actually all but decided not to buy the game and have been struggling with the decision for the last week (not kidding here, I've never straddled a fence so much in my life... heh.) Your vid may or may not have helped me make my final decision to take the plunge and buy the Imp Edition. That, and the fact that Greenmangaming is so effing awesome :).

I'm still not sure I'll be playing it on release though, as I imagine it will take some time to stabilize. I've also been messing around with FFXI again recently (with all the awesome solo friendly changes that have happened), so that's been taking up some time. All the same, I likely would have caved in eventually anyway so I figure it's best to get it now and take advantage of the pre-order benefits.

Thank you, I still have a lot to learn, but I seem to have found an audience.

Your vid may or may not have helped me make my final decision to take the plunge and buy the Imp Edition. That, and the fact that Greenmangaming is so effing awesome :).

I struggled a lot as well, for the last few months I was convinced ESO would have the same issues SWTOR did, and while the marketing has been error ridden and post launch updates could still go wrong I had to face the facts that no other mmo can do what ESO does right now, and I really am in an mmo moord (I alternate between that and strategy gaming). 

I also got mine from GreenManGaming, new to it, so we'll see how it goes.

 

I'm still not sure I'll be playing it on release though, as I imagine it will take some time to stabilize. All the same, I likely would have caved in eventually anyway so I figure it's best to get it now and take advantage of the pre-order benefits.

I was always going to pre-order or not get at all, as I love to watch the early days on an mmo, but I am tempted to just play the head start, then leave it till the Thieve's Guild is in. On the other hand I suspect I will need a lot of footage for later videos, so I may have to twitch stream and record pretty much all I do. I can't get away we re-edited official trailers forever.

The graphics thing is tricky as I usually prefer a stylized look, and no amount of quality can make me like drab and realistic, but after playing ESO in 1st person I saw how it makes sense for the environment to be close to real life, as was the case for Skyrim, and it makes the fantasy stuff stand out that much clearer. In many screenshots and footage it can look too similar to Rift or AoC, but when you are playing the detail is amazing.

 

I mentioned the RPG element but didn't make it a numbered reason, partly as one key RPG mechanic, thieving, isn't in yet, and others are found in most mmos, its just that there are a few that have been neglected that only ESO and Archeage of the new AAA mmos are doing.
