OP  12/06/13 5:52:28 PM#1

If ESO was being developed exactly like it is, BUT everything concerning The Elder Scrolls IP was removed (names, locations, etc) and was replaced with basic High Fantasy related lore, would you still be interested in playing it?

 

 

 

 

Would you play ESO without "The Elder Scrolls"?

Yes- The gameplay is what interests me
Yes- but TES is the main draw
Maybe- I would have to see how it plays.
No- TES is why Im interested in the game
No- Im not interested in ESO

I'm not enamored by the IP, could care less actually, I'm only following because its been reported to mimic DAOC style RVR, only item of real interest to me.

A bunch of co-workers and I were having this discussion. One of them was like you and wasnt interested in TES, but liked the fact it was going to have DAOC PvP.

2 others werent interested in the PvP at all and were interested because it was TES

Another didnt care if it was TES, but is going to play it anyway because its an MMO

I was the odd man out. I love TES, but am not interested in the game

TES setting surely is a main draw, but I would give it a shot.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

there needs to be a hook for me to play a mmorpg, and this ol fish is darn near played out.

 

 having said that, my fallback game when i tire of a mmo  is the elder scrolls, oblivion/skyrim,  so there is the hook once again that ill bit onto, least for a while. if TESO can offer anywhere the replayability of the elder scroll series, and have the fun of three way pvp, which was fantastic in daoc, im all for it.

 

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

Definitely. The bevy of good design decisions combined with the talented developmental direction that has proven itself to me already is enough to get me hyped. That it's TES is just a huge bonus.

Kind of a pointless thread since most of the mechanics in-game stem from TES and therefore without the influence it wouldn't be what it is.

Just because every car has similar features doesn't mean that Ferraris are copies of Model Ts. Progress requires failure and refining.

TES, the SPRG's that is, don't have the most . . . erm . . . fascinating lore. It's the freedom, exploration, and customization that are enjoyable.

Actually, I bet if they did skin it with "random fantasy MMO theme #7" people would be much more positive about TESO than they currently are because they're so busy comparing it to some single player games.

I hate questions like this, because I honestly think they're pointless. ESO likely wouldn't be developed like this without the link to elder scrolls, it is what it is exactly because it comes from that series.

But the answer is yes, if a game was doing the exact same as ESO was doing (and therefore it would be an elder scrolls ripoff), I would still give it a chance. I even give ripoffs a chance, but like all games I try to inform myself so that I know what I'm gonna get myself into.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

I'd actually be even more interested. I'd wanted a multiplayer TES game for a long time, but for the purposes of co-op with my friends. Getting divided because one friend will only play this faction, while another friend refuses to play it, was kinda unfun when, throughout the TES games I've played, you could always pick any race. Settings were faction divide has always been there, or are built with factions in mind, are just fine with me, so if there were no 'TES' attached to it, I'd probably be a little more hyped, though I am already planning to at least give it a try.

Honestly I'm interested in any new mmorpg coming out. Even those that are spinoffs like EQ Next. TESO will be fun to me though because I'm connected with it because of the previous single player games.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Obviously you haven't played.  I assure you, you couldn't EXCLUDE those things and have anything left over.  The gameplay from TES is actually fairly exclusive when compared to ANY other MMO.  Thanks for playing, though.

I'd need a little clarification before answering.  If we're just changing all the proper nouns as you suggest in your parentheses, then the game, lore, story, world, history still remains exactly the same; it would all just have a different name.  If this is the case, then yes, I'd absolutely still be interested in the game.  

If, on the other hand, we're "replacing" the lore with "basic" high fantasy lore, then we're altering the content of the story, world and history.  Moreover, applying the adjective "basic" to story and lore is generally synonymous with "bad" or "shallow."  In this case, you're essentially asking if we replace the rich, deep, good lore of the TES world with shallow, bad lore, would we still like it?  To this question, I'd probably answer no.

You are correct in assuming I have not played the beta. I was merely referring to what the OP posted, which didn't specify the requirement for having played an unfinished build of the game.

As such, I didn't know that the entirety of the MMO's game mechanics were so directly taken from past ES games. Due to the info released thus far, it appeared that many game mechanics diverged from said games in order to facilitate MMO play. As I have not played, I was apparently wrong in that assumption. Thanks for the correction.

So I guess my answer to the OP is that if this were an alternate universe and ES never existed, yet the game we are speaking of did under a different name and utilized mechanics that were somehow identical to those revealed thus far, I would be interested in it.

i would yes, i like the art style and the Daoc style pvp, i like that cyrodiil has pve and pvp so it (hopefully) feels more like open pvp and not just a pvp area.

Darkfall seems an awful lot like it...but with the freedom that this game is going to lack.

 

I don't care about the TES IP, but appreciate the games.  Once I found MMO's I can never play another single player game for any amount of time.  I'm on the fence about the game, but only because of the overuse of themepark features.  Also on the fence about paying the now upped $60 box price (MMO's used to be $50 box) and a sub.

I'm with you.  I never really enjoyed skyrim or oblivion.  They just felt like really boring single player mmos *shrug.

Without the Elder Scrolls IP it's just a lame DAOC knock off. Been there, done that. Now if they can just figure out how to represent the Elder Scrolls core gameplay in some fashion within their MMO framework I might be happy.

If only. If this had anything to do with DAoC it might be a solid game. But DAoC didn't have need of instancing or phasing or mega servers or playing in the other realms. DAoC was one of the best MMORPGs ever created, if this was a clone of that, it would do more than well. But it has more in common with WoW than DAoC.
