TESO is a single play cop title with a hybrid combat system that felt fun for minute.

Umm... LOTRO was the first "WoW clone" I mean it literally has the exact same hub system. I agree it does have some great unique elements as well, but not sure what says Asheron's Call about LOTRO to you.

 

Umm... WoW was the first "EQ clone". WoW clone is such a retarded comment these days.

My point has been proven, and I know you do not even know why...    Only an Old School High Adventure fan who grew up on all those movies in my original post could ever understand. 

 

You also listed all Sci-FI movies, when all the movies I listed in my Original post are High Adventure movies. Completely different genre.

 

The ole, "you're not qualified to disagree with me" argument.  Fantastic...

I grew up playing PnP AD&D..  I played Hero's Quest, Baldur's Gate, nwn, Meridian 59, Ultima Online, Asheron's Call, Everquest...  You don't get any more old school than me.  ESO holds your hand, shows you the way..  The spirit of High Adventure?  If, by that, you mean, "left click the NPC, follow the arrow, click the marker, go back to the NPC, left click until you level up" YEAH, ESO's got heaps of it.

If you post only to agree with yourself then i suggest open a blog or something because this attitude isn't going to work on the forums.

I loved High Adventure Movies, you did not.   I love ESO, you do not.  Nothing wrong with that.

I read almost every one of Tolkein's books..  I love "High Adventure."  However, I do not care for the shallow movies you've listed.  And I don't care for ESO.

 

My tastes are too sophisticated to enjoy ESO.

I'm glad you can agree that ESO is of the High Adventure genre and that you love the things I do.

 

However, where you and me differ, is that you have an issue with how that High Adventure is presented to you.  Totally different issues then the poster before you that I was addressing. 

 

I can sympathize with you over your issues, however, I see issues like that very minor given that the very last game of that type of genre came out was LOTRO.   I have no doubt you would say the same about LOTRO or worse because of its now outdated graphics. 

 

You see, your importance is more on the MMO aspect of the game and not the Old School High Adventure of the game, in which I find to be the best in any game that has came out so far to date.

 

I have to think realistic about these things.   When I played EQOA, I dint go...   Well its not 2014 graphics so its crapy and unimersive...   I dint say that about LOTRO either.    I saw what was before me was a game that was the best out at the time that was true to the old school things you mentioned and I used my imagination to fill in the rest. 

 

To throw away a game that is of the genre and old school high adventure things you love just based on things as silly as an arrow market you can turn off if you want, seems rather shallow of a reason to me.  

 

If you pass up this game just because of your love of money or most of the things in it are not 2050 gaming,  You are only robbing yourself of an enjoyable experience you can have that has a lot to do with the things you love.   Like all the old school high adventure things you listed.

If that's really what you thought then why would you make a title like this.

"The One Old School RPG to rule them all!"

It's amazing how I posted next to you as a fan of this game for months and you don't remember it at all and now tell me I didn't like parts of the game. I liked several things until they said cash shop and tossed it all into the toilet.

No reason to backtrack, you tried to lock it all down and say this game was a panacea and it's not. It doesn't matter what mechanics are in the game to like or dislike when the game pieces are for sale because that isn't old school.

It may have got you views but I'm still not buying the game. Cash shops are crap and any developer who wants to spend time on them tells me that they don't care about adventure, they care about running a retail store and they want to hire marketing and monetization specialists instead of developers. 

If that's your cup of tea, that's fine but to go the extent of exclaiming that it's old school is just trying to mislead people who you think might be looking for a game with that old time feel needs to be rebutted. Everyone should be aware this game is heavily quest based and not interested in you venturing off the main path and especially that they are selling parts of the items in the game for real cash. That too isn't old school at all.

Then what you have is a love of money over your love of old school high adventure.   its that simple.  I personally don't care how much they put into a cash shop, or if its theme or if its this or that,  as long as its true to the vision old school high adventure,  I will support this game to the very end or until something of the same type of genre comes along and does it far better then ESO.  Which isn't anywhere on the horizon.

TESO has it´s own rythm, and feeling. Very much like a ESO game and perfect for RP.

I like that. The game is growing in me as i play....

I realized now (after playing TESO) of how MMORPGs have become a fast paced instant satisfaction genre,

and i feel like TESO is bringing the relax and the RP back into MMO gaming.

I find myself taking pics like a tourist everywhere in this game...

Me too! I dont feel that rush to level or leave an area, as i have with other MMOs, to get to the next quest hub. Hell im still on the starter island at Lv 7 :)

Idk, in the last Five posts I made, I just proved why all Five of the top haters of ESO do not like ESO.   I think that was a success for any given day on the ESO forum.   

 

P.S.  That genre....  is Sci-FI. LOL.

Proved to whom?  Ask yourself that before you pat yourself on the back.  And, duh... the genre has nothing to do with anything.  It's called "satire".

So the OP is saying that ESO is going to be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom by two hobbits and a miscreant?

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

He really wants this game to appear like Conan the Barbarian for some reason. The only thing they have in common at all is that they are both set in a fantasy setting. Beyond that they have almost nothing in common. The brutal nature of Robert E. Howard's work just doesn't manifest itself within the game at all. He is likely intending to compare ESO to the sword and sorcery style of adventure and the comparison falls flat.

 

If you do want a Conan the Barbarian feel, I'd recommend actually playing Age of Conan. It captures the "high adventure" (he probably means sword and sorcery and just doesn't know it) much better than ESO.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

Uhh? ESO is not comparable to COB. Both lores have nothing in common. ESO is too tame compared to savagery, sex and gore of COB. I wonder if you even know anything about Conan universe or just pulling random stuff outta thin air... to make a point.

ESO is like disney land in comparison to Conan.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

ESO takes everything I loved in my childhood and wraps it up into one big package and delivers it into a modern up to date modern game that is realistic graphic, voiced over, and everything I could possibly have wanted in a modern game of this type of genre style.


When I look at the timeline of games that were inspired by things of high adventure genre of my youth that I enjoyed the most, I can only identify a handful of games up to this date that have been made with my tastes of high adventure at heart. Among them I see EQ, Eqoa, Lotro,and Age of Conan as the types of games that are my tastes of bottles of wine which do not come out everyday.


So to me a game isn't about weather its theme park, sandbox, or even the cost of the game, it doesn't matter. Its about having something oldschool that is my taste of genre of high adventure that has come out, which I haven't tasted in over 5 years.


Games of this type genre which I loved so much from my childhood do not come out every day that are pure to my old school tastes of the high adventure of my youth across all spectrums from movies, table top dice throwing, to games. So this game might not be your 1000 year old scool bottle of high adventure genre that your taste buds love, but you have to at least respect the fact that my taste of 1000 year old wine is ESO.


I might see WoW or Wildstar as cheap beer, whereas you might see it as your 1000 year old wine for another reason. While you may call my ESO as cheap bear, when I see it as 1000 year old wine because it represents the old school high adventure genre of my youth that I so much enjoyed in life.


Someone tried to tell me that Conan with a laser pistol would be the same, so ESO is the same as SWTOR, but do you really think it could possibly be the same for me if Conan the barbarian had a laser pistol, could I have loved Conan the Barbarian if he had a laser pistol or anything sci-fi in the movie? That answer to me, would be No, I could not feel the same way about that movie it was like that, just as I cannot feel SWTOR is the same as ESO.


Well I'm off to play the game I love, I hope I have inspired the many people who love Old School High Adventure and do not let others dis-sway you from things you love, just because others hate it or might not recognize the difference between the old school high adventure genre we grew up on and came to love in our youth and another whole different genre of games. Enjoy!

Wait!

Wait!

Wait!

My tastes are too sophisticated to enjoy ESO.

Well theres your reason, your tastes are not ESO, its as simple as that, if you don't like Conan the Barbarian, which was an all time great Old School High Adventure movie, then it doesn't surprise me that you do not like ESO. 

 

 

ESO only appeals to people who like campy films from the 80s and not people who read ACTUAL "Old School High Adventure" books..  Got it.
