OP  4/04/13 11:45:13 PM#1

I'm not a fan of open world/sandboxy games. Too open and I get lost too easily. Like I got Skyrim (luckily for Xbox360, all I had to do was have my friend let me borrow is copy...didn't even have to buy it)...but 1 hour in I was so lost. There was the main quest, but once I was done with that...why didn't the game just end? And I was so overwhelmed with everything.

 

I did like the races/lore. But, the games (even Morrowind and Oblivion)...not so much. Oblivion was better than Skyrim though for me, and Morrowind was my least favorite. That was even WAY more confusing than Skyrim.

 

So with that said...from whats been revealed of Elder Scrolls Online...would this be more an MMO for me? Less overwhelming, and more a set path like WoW is? (WoW is my favorite MMO, very straight forward game).

 

Thanks :)

The world is bigger since its an mmorpg, its all those games lands put in one...but dont worry its the usual themepark type questing most likely so you will be hand helded through out the whole game through its quest.  Or maybe western rpgs arent for you in general?  Is this even a serious thread/post? cuz its kinda funny...

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Well games like Skyrim can be as linear as you want them to be.  Why anyone would only play the main storyline is beyond me but the point stands.

 

I honestly doubt you would find interest in ESO and sticking to WoW clones may be better suited to your sensibilities since you are led down a path from character generation to level cap.  My advice is to try it, if it suits you continue to play but by the blessed graces of the Nine, do not use your opinions of not liking the structure of the game to advocate for its failure as so many on these forums do.  Just quit the game and chalk up to poor planning or not heeding my very gracious advice to not play in the first place.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Why did EA/Bioware chose star wars? There's already an established market for the product.

to be honest, there is no way of telling all i really got about your post was that you where confused early in and lost, that dousnt tell me much about what kinda games you like.

also since this game isnt out it will also b hard to tell you if you will like it till i have played it a bit, and most beta players cant really speak due to the NDA ( not sure if it in effect still or not )

my sugesstion is wait a month or more after it comes out to find out what other are saying and check out some U tube vids on it before you get it

 

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to

Hm, interesting question. I'd say, if you don't like Elder Scrolls at all, you will only have to rely on the devs delivering a solid MMO experience. And I think they are going to do that. From what I heard you advance through zones appropriate for your level and within these zones you will find lots of quests, although not necessarily only in quest hubs but spread over the whole zone. I don't think that you will get lost as they will very likely have some sort of quest tracker for your main story line quest and also some rough indicators for other quests.

In short: If you only care about a good MMO experience you will probably have some fun with this game :)

Star Wars is more popular and have much more background but how can you deny ES also has a significant amount of popularity among gamers and a well established lore?  To call it rubbish is an insult to some of us.

While I don't agree in the least that TES is "rubbish", I never really get very far into them because of the fact that I mainly enjoy MMOs nowadays due to the social aspect.  Single player games don't grab me like they used to, no matter how great the lore is.. it's lonely and depressing.  So in effect, you may enjoy TESO because there are other people to do things with.  If you hate the lore or fantasy in general, you may not enjoy it.  I've never played it, but after watching videos, I feel like I have.  I still intend to give it a shot, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything new... another reason you might not like it, if you're into that sort of thing.

That's fine and all, I enjoy some good lore, the dwemer myserty is great. I'm just saying ESO will be better than the single player ES games, even if only because it's an mmo.

How can you not like Skyrim?

It has to be the Best RPG since FF7...

The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.

The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, Linear Questing, Cut-Scenes...

Well considering that TES is the second largest RPG franchise in the world, behind only Final Fantasy, I think you'll find yourself in the minority, frankly.

That said, I think it will be different enough that you might enjoy it but if you were to tell us more about why you dislike TES (aside from, it's too open and gives me too many options, because ESO will probably feel the same way) then maybe people could give you some constructive feedback.

Do you prefer a connect-the-dots or hub-based approach, or like a fully linear corridor experience?

I think if WoW if your favorite MMO you will hate this.  Unlike WoW you actually have to play this game and pay attention, you can't just macro your way through it while watching TV.

It's also hilarious to me that you like Oblivion most, Skyrim second and Morrowind least, which is usually the exact opposite of what most people say.  This makes me start smelling troll...hehehe.

I prefer Skyrim to any Final Fantasy game really, FF7 was good for its time, but it really doesn't hold up like, say Morrowind does.

Yeah, I actually thought of Morrowind when I saw the "Best RPG since.." comment, but opinions are opinions.  The best part about Morrowind is that it can be modded.  FF7 will always be chunky.  Remakes don't count.  It's just the first game I can remember being disappointed in after having high hopes.  Guess I bought the hype lol

From the looks of things it seems like the races and lore will be the bulk of what TESO retains from the Elder Scrolls series. Many of the mechanics and design are more in line with other MMOs rather than to TES games. 

Think of it as a typical MMO with some newer features and mechanics with TES races and lore. 

If your a fan of MMOs in general you will likely enjoy TESO, if you are a TES fan (in my opinion) it is less likely that you will enjoy TESO.
