I wish this game would get cancelled more than any MMORPG to date.

I will NOT be purchasing it.  Disgusting that they thought this was acceptable.

Yeah, because games you do not approve or buy are ceased to exist.

@Nitth , Skyrim was also GOTY ;)

 

@Gdemani  Generally, games with awards tends to have the sales to back them up. Skyrim alone had an insane amount of awards, especially GOTY.  Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim have still managed to bring significant sales, despite being very taxing computer-wise when they launched.

Either way, here's a good read on Skyrim's sales, although there are no direct number to distinguish between PC and console aside from Steam's launch numbers : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elder_Scrolls_V:_Skyrim#Sales

And you would be right, it is a pile of fodder. Hopefully Zenimax Online Studio's sad game won't affect BGS too much.

This guys sounds absolutly loney and corrupt... He explains that its not a MMO but an online RPG,,, then he continues to call it an MMO

The more comments I read from the TESO development team, the more disenchanted I become. Based on what has been written I feel a robust cooperative play mod and PVP maps for Skyrim with a cash shop for cosmetic additions would have a larger player base and net more profit over time than the proposed Elders Scrolls Online and accomplish the same objective. It would have had a much smaller development cost as well. Maybe it will surprise me and prove to be a good game in its own right but it’s development team comments like those that lead me to wonder if MMORPGs really are becoming a thing of the past...

 

I honestly hope another team works on a potential Fallout mmorpg.

I must be getting old.

I am the only gamer that still gets excited about games before they come out, instead of acting like a bored teenager with an iPhone in one hand and a console controller in the other.

I always HOPE FOR THE BEST when a questionable game comes out, rather then make a slack-jawed "omg sux" decision.

When I heard that TES mmo was in the works it excited me.  If its vanilla-plain or just not worth it, I wont re-sub.  Spending $60 for a game and getting at least 1 month of free play is easily affordable if you have a JOB (or vote!). Do the adult thing kiddos, and just dont resub if/when it sucks.

Geez, some of you seriously need a daddy to toss the ball around with and maybe learn some facts about life.  Things happen.  Roll with it.  Some more things happen.  And know what?  After that, something else happens.

Well, according to Bethesda themselves, only about 10% of their Skyrim sales is towards PC platform.
ie:
http://www.neoseeker.com/news/16252-bethesda-90-of-elder-scrolls-audience-on-consoles/


Morrowind and Oblivion are the same. Consoles is where their sales are strong at, not PC platform.


Elder Scrolls might be popular and create some buzz in certain circles but still minor when compared to other genres or platforms.


That is most likely a reason why TESO will keep little resemblance with TES series, it would not make much sense otherwise. I only hoped for the art as I am a bit fed up with the generic, cartoon-asian-style look of fantasy games.

I really don't think it's because consoles are where the sales are at that TESO "must" be different from TES. As I've said in my previous post, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim are very taxing on the computers, which are not as accessible  in terms of cost compared to consoles (especially back around when Morrowind and Oblivion launched, prices for high-end computers were much higher). I could totally understand why TESO would need to have a different artstyle or graphic quality for an MMORPG however, because they're making a game that's restricted to the PC audience so it must be accessible to a wider range of PCs, but I see no reason to completely change the key elements of TES to fit a TESO MMO. The TES serie of SRPG is far too well-known and popular because of these very key elements (such as having no classes, housing, living world with the radiant AI, etc) removing them is ridiculous, and the Zenimax developers' reason to do so are even more ridiculous (housing = too hard).

What Zenimax basically did is they took a living animal (TES) and taxidermied it. It's still the same animal visually...or in name at least, but everything else changed.

 

I think TESO would've probably been a success (somewhat) had they launched around the same time as Warhammer Online did. They would've still felt a backlash from the TES fans to some extent, but they wouldn't have felt the backlash from MMO fans. The thing now though, is that the market is so oversaturated with WoW clones and failures that releasing yet another one at this stage is madness. On one hand, Zenimax worked on TESO for far too long (2007 I think?), and on the other, it gave Bethesda the time to continue to push their games on the next level (Fallout 3 and Skyrim) and really raise the bar of expectation. On top of that, it's fanbase as long been asking for co-op modes.  There's just no way TESO will be a success.

That is the only relevant factor.

It is the PC gamers that are likely to play PC based MMO and when you consider TES PC fan base as a part of MMO market, your target audience would be insignificant.

It makes more sense to focus on average MMO gamer rather than TES gamer.


You just need to stop looking at TESO from narrow prismatic of TES fan and see it more from business perspective.

Only Morrowind and Oblivion were "taxing" and that was because of very poor coding, which Bethesda is notoriously known for.

Also, art has nothing to do with performance requirements.

if they do not have the ability to clearly understand how the TES fan base and MMO player base intersect and in which ways they intersect then they really need to not be in this industry at all.

They do have the ability and that is why they make TESO the way they do. That was my whole point.

no they dont have the ablity they do not see the intersection AT ALL, they are as you are suggesting looking at two different existing demographics INSTEAD of seeing how the two can create a NEW demographic.

no its honesty and experience. Thing is I think you know exactly what I am talking about.

Darkfall is a very good example of a starting point for that intersection.

 

Besides most EXISTING MMO players dont even like the direction MMOs are going but a company has to be innovative to know it.

Only if you define "strong selling" as 10 million plus.

Morrowind and Oblivion and even Skyrim moved millions of units on the PC.  Even when it was on consoles, it had a certain art feel.  They intentionally stayed away from the cartoony look that a lot of other RPG's had adopted.  ESO looks like a cartoon.  A very nice cartoon, but still a cartoon.  Now we just need tons of particle effects swirling around people when spells are cast.

So you are correct on the art part, but don't get where whether or not it sold well on the PC having anything to do with why it isn't consistent with that art.
