"what a boring life, HATING everything" -Gorilla Biscuits

 
OP  5/07/12 4:51:22 AM#1

 It seems whenever I (or others) offer an opinion that isn't negative toward the game, there is a bombardment of responses to the tune of "but this isn't what I want from a TES MMO". Why should my opinion be based on what you want from a TES MMO?

Along with that there are also a number of responses that will sing a tune of "idiocy" because a poster isn't up in arms about things like TAB targetting, classes, etc.. Why should I care about others being sick of those things? Why should I want change if I actually prefer some of those things in an MMO (excluding class based, I do prefer skill based)?

Worst of all are those who don't understand the difference between withholding judgment, and being a sheep with wool over eye. WIthholding judgement means a person wants to see the whole picture, before offering a verdict. This is the complete opposite of the latter.

 I just want to know why people think their opinion should be held by everyone, and people are mindless drones if they don't share it? Is it just trolling or what?

The simple answer is that they're not you. They don't think like you, have the same tastes as you, or reason like you. In short, they're them. Don't take their expressions about the game personally. You don't have to accept how they feel about the game, just as they don't have to accept how you feel about it.

This simply wont go anywhere and will be invariably closed as spam once someone hops in and starts spewing self-made-facts from their backside without accepting any information that opposes their view. As is customary with gaming forums.

I got your point exactly.

What you failed to see is that the answer to your conundrum lies in the last 3 sentences of my post. Those people who are trying to make everyone think as they do can't seem to grasp that people are different. As a result, they get nasty. When someone says something that doesn't quite jibe with what they were expecting, they get bent out of shape and say (in perhaps not the exact same words), "Why don't you think like me!"... or they tell you that you've missed the point.

I doubt you're wrong, I'm sure it will get ugly, if it makes it that far, still I really want to know what makes a person an idiot for not agreeing with another's extreme views.

I'd really like to hear from those who feel that way.

Bottom line is the game is getting made,like it or not that's the way it is.Anyone who has a problem with anything concerning TESO can stay the fuck away and play some other game or they can just keep playing the single player TES games.

When all is said and done thats the bottom line but you know what,all these so called MMO devs will play the game because curiosity will get the better of them.

Seems to me that people who are complaining stopped out the first paragraph of the released info the other day.If they actually choose to read all the info on the game they would know that it might actually be an okay MMO.

Attacking him? where i'm from that's just a figure of speech , it appeared he was saying the opposite of what I was asking, IE: I have a problem with others opinions.

Well that's my bad for sure, your wording seemed as though you were directing that at me. WIth the use of "you" over and over.

At what point? The part where he said you shouldn't take their comments personally, or the part where he addresses the behavior of wanting to exert one's point of view as a general thing people do on the internet?

 

At what point did he single you out as a perpetrator?

 

And tying this into the thread topic question. Maybe it's because some people have martyr syndrome?

 

EDIT: Meh, ye figured it out. On a more serious address of the topic it's just a matter of where people are coming from with the game. With Elder Scrolls you are going to end up having a more finite set of distinct points of view about what will make or break the game.

 

Some people just honeslty like the lore. That's all that wil matter to them and the gameplay changes won't bother them. Some people might actually just like this kind of gameplay and MMO and likes to hop between games to see the different worlds/themes. Some people may just be diehard loyalists to the game series and want to play each game regardless of the changes to how it plays over time.

 

Then there's people that play the game for it's particulars in the game mechanics. And what matters to them has distinctly been taken away already. People that have enjoyed the last three titles on console and PC who played the games because they liked the games in the context of what they were and were more or less just asking for a multiplayer way to share their experience with friends. Or people that wanted to take the visceral context of the gameplay experience and transpose that onto MMO gameplay.

 

There's a reason Mortal Online and Darkfall were both coined early on as Elder Scrolls or Oblivion-like MMOs. Because people wanted to capture that concept of experiencing the game as the character rather than through the character.

 

On top of that you have to consider who the real long term fans of the elder scrolls series are. People are still playing, modding, and milling about in Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim and likely will continue to do so for another few years at least on the PC.

 

When an MMO is a game designed around the principle of longevity, you kinda of want a dedicated fanbase like that. Problem is, what is there really for all those fans of the single player Elder Scrolls games to really enjoy for such a long time in the MMO? It's a fanbase that feels distinctly alienated from the series by a change that does not mesh with what they have played and adored for so long, and the community isn't as wide-spread as those for things like Star Wars or other multi-media genres might be.

 

I mean, honestly. How many people that have read the Elder Scrolls books have not spent a ton of time in the games?

Yeah I've noticed that as well, that and people see the word WOW and fly off the handle that it is now a WOW clone.

Still looks as though he's implying I take it personally though, which I don't.

Yeah I noticed yer response after posting, decided to make my first post a bit more meaningful. :p

 

EDIT: Though I also feel the need to clarify that I didn'g get annoyed about the MMO until I read through the full thing and extra articles to understand the core mechanics. Really is the fundamental gameplay that turns me away in this case. Kinda took away half the reason I love the single player titles.

Correct, Distopia. I was using "you" generically. Sorry for the confusion.

I think, and is a personal opinion of course, that most people, like me, think TES MMO and see Skyrim multyplayer, or oblivion or any other TES single player that have been released.

 

So when they announced "An MMO" with Tes lore, and is an MMO with MMO stuff to make it likeable to people that like MMOs not specifically TES, people felt betrayed. Mind, i am not saying Zenimax betrayed anyone, they are developing an MMO with MMO stuff as any other MMO, probably will be a  good MMO with all the bells and whistles, just is not the Skyrim Multyplayer that most TES fans would have liked.

 

I put myself into that part of people that would have liked Skyrim multyplayer. 

 

Yes probably is going ot be an decent or even good MMO, but is not what i'd like to play in a TES game, some are more vocals then others in expressing their opinions, and some are really touchy about TES and how should be treated on an MMO and they respond violently.

 

As i said in another post, will probably make a ton of cash and a lot of people will play it, but who wanted a "Skyrimisque" experience is probably going to try to send bombs to the developers.

 

Edit: to correct spelling.

Yeah I definitely get that peeps hold TES near and dear, I do as well. I"ve been working on mods for quite a while myself so I uderstand that as well.

I understand where the anger comes from I really do, and I've expressed understanding of that prior to this thread, I just want to know why they project that anger toward their fellow gamers, who's only wrong doing is being cautious about jumping to conclusions.

Good post though :)

Correct, Distopia. I was using "you" generically. Sorry for the confusion.

All's well that ends well, and sorry for jumping to conclusions:).

Ah well for that aspect it's just pretty base psychology.

 

People polarize. It's just the whole 'if you aren't with us, you're against us' thing playing out with a mob of upset people.

 

Comments that don't fit their mental state are pretty much just combative to them, even if it's a comment taking a nautral stance. This habit just gets worse when you attach something they like to what they see as bad news, mix the anonmity of the internet, and add a bit of supporting chorus.

I think, and is a personal opinion of course, that most people, like me, think TES MMO and see Skyrim multyplayer, or oblivion or any other TES single player that have been released.

 

So when they announced "An MMO" with Tes lore, and is an MMO with MMO stuff to make it likeable to people that like MMOs not specifically TES, people felt betrayed. Mind, i am not saying Zenimax betrayed anyone, they are developing an MMO with MMO stuff as any other MMO, probably will be a  good MMO with all the bells and whistles, just is not the Skyrim Multyplayer that most TES fans would have liked.

 

I put myself into that part of people that would have liked Skyrim multyplayer. 

 

Yes probably is going ot be an decent or even good MMO, but is not what i'd like to play in a TES game, some are more vocals then others in expressing their opinions, and some are really touchy about TES and how should be treated on an MMO and they respond violently.

 

As i said in another post, will probably make a ton of cash and a lot of people will play it, but who wanted a "Skyrimisque" experience is probably going to try to send bombs to the developers.

 

Edit: to correct spelling.

Yeah I understand that line of thought and reasoning, without the fans where would TES be today? It's the fans who have taken great games and made them that much more through modding and their support of it.

I think it's perfectly reasonable to feel somewhat betrayed, it took a little thought on the subject at first, but I agree with the premise those who feel that way express. At first I looked at it as gamer entitlement, which that was my mistake there.
