It's an MMORPG, if you want the single player experience that is your choice but not everyone does. 

if you want mmo withot rpg go play planetside 2.

 

Or I could just play the game the way I want without someone telling me I'm doing it wrong. 

You're doing it wrong...

I sort of have a mixed reaction to this. It's good that the voice acting will be at a high level of quality. That can only be good for the game and immersion factor. That being said I can't help but think they could have gotten quality voice acting from actors that wouldn't cost as much and spend the money saved on other things. To me it's more of a bang for the buck type issue. Does the game really improve that much going from quality no name actors to quality named actors and is it worth the extra cost?

Swtor all over again

Voice over was actually one of the things that was considered "good" about SWTOR, I know lots of people that class SWTOR's leveling as the best they have ever experienced in a mmo. SWTOR's problem was what happened after finished leveling.........nothing, absolutely nothing to do, 5 raid bosses, rng pvp loot (GRRR!!) and world pvp that struggled to handle more than 20 people on screen (double GRRR!).

 

Those issues had nothing at all to do with them including voice acting in the game, it was a lack of fun things to do due to a completely broken end game for both pve (soa bugs) or pvp (illum and rng loot system)

 

I pretty much agree with this.

 

Also, one of the problems with using big name actors for your voices as this isn't their main gig.  If you need some extra voice work on short notice for new content, good luck getting that done from a big name actor.  Professional voice actors on the other hand are probably a lot more likely to be flexible.  If they aren't planning on doing any post release voice work for new content than it won't be an issue, but then it starts to look a lot like making the same mistakes as SWTOR.

I like voice acting, but it is sort of a trivial point in a game. It's a disposable expense consumed once per character and then it's gone. And those promoting the idea that scripted storyline is the only viable story potential in an rpg is laughable. It's an online interactive game. We can create our own stories. That is the heart of role playing, not watching another's story. That's fun and all, but by no means the core of an RPG. If someone wants to skip scripted story and create their own adventures they are not "doing it wrong".

Yes, but professional writers paired with professional actors can present *good* stories.

I agree. There are some names on that list that are my favorite actors. As long as they didn't do this at the expense of core, systems, or mechanics development then all the better for them.

The class stories in SWTOR are one of the main attractions for me, but if the game wasn't fun to play then all the story in the world wouldn't matter. Now if the game is designed solely around the story, like To The Moon, then that is a different situation altogether. I think for MMOs it's very important, but there is also a careful balance they need to maintain.

We worry a lot, as mmo gamers, and for good reason, but I bet this will all work out for the better for ESO as a whole.

Curse you AquaScum!

What a waste of money IMO, I don't care who does the voices, does not improve my game experience.  I would rather some guy on the dev team did it, and they spent more time and money improving things like the combat system, or giving me more to do ect..

The point is not to have voice acting in the game or not. I like quests and NPCs to have a voice and all... but why hire famous people when you could've hired some random people and no one would have seen a difference ingame... This is wasted money...

 

But everybody, myself included, will buy the game whatever they do and they know it, so whatever haha

 

Edit: As I read one of the comments before mine, I had to edit just to agree about post-launch updates. Good luck getting Kate Beckinsale to come in an afternoon 6-9 months after release for another recording... She'll be doing something else, probably in another country... This looks like they don't plan to update the story and characters post-launch, which is a really bad sign...

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

Add 1 faction (oops, who even does this?).  That wild card approach in pvp (not the pvp you are used to by the way, something much grander and book-worthy) means no overpowered realm a vs underpowered realm b.  Now, everyone has to look over their shoulder.  Stalemates die in 3 faction mmorpgs what few exist.

Doesn't really change anything if they aren't split about 1/3 each. If we end up with 65% Ebonheart 20% Aldmeri and 15% Daggerfall, or whatever, it's still going to be unbalanced. What they had to do was put the third faction with a changing alignment ( think Aion), but that doesn't really fit the game.

Oh, so it doesn't improve your game experience, therefore it shouldn't be done, no matter how many people do feel it improves their experience?

And no, having some guy on the dev team do it would be a terrible idea.

And people say MMORPG's aren't mainstream now. lol.

I'd say this is a waste, but apparently SWTOR is doing well, so what the hell do I know. Farmville also pulls in absurd numbers, same with wizard101. As long as you have people whiling to fork over the money, then the extra expenditures are worth it. Judging by the responses in this thread, it seems hiring actors like Kate Beckinsale was a good move.

I just can't wait for the Jonas brothers and Justin beiber to be the voices of the characters. It's coming people.

Hi, I don't believe we've met. I'm fairly sure I don't know you. I'm damn certain you don't speak for me. Please speak for yourself.

If there is an option 95% of the people playing skip it, and after the first go through 100% of the people skip any dialogue.

 See above. I happen to greatly enjoy dialogue in games. Yes, even after the first time.

I would also say more than half the people this game is trying to target have never even heard of these people. I am 45 and even I was young when they were actually relevant.

So what? The point isn't "how many do you know". The point is they're veteran actors/actresses who know how to deliver lines in a convincing way...

200 million dollar budget, and we see where too much of it went with his article in my opinion.

Whether the money was well-spend or not remains to be seen and anyway, who is voice acting the characters - or even if they're voice acted at all, is not indicative in any way of what the game itself will be like. 

I know people like to say "but but SWTOR!", and I say "Your point?" SWTOR is SWTOR. ESO is ESO.

Nice to have something people can comment on without NDA issues, lol.  Easily the best voice cast in the Elder Scrolls series, by a country mile.

While I don't disagree with what you say, I bet you must be a teacher in RL. ;)

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?
