Well it comes down to what people perceive games as:

 

a). Interactive Entertainment -> a step above movies where you take part actively in the storyline (or make your own story even)

 

b). Mindless bashing of buttons to mitigate real-world stress (thank God for FPS games)

 

c). A thing that makes you feel cool, because you had the time availability, or in very rare cases the skill, to grind mindlessly for hundreds (or thousands) of hours for a bunch of pixels (End-game raiding);

....however the only other people that view this as an achievement of any sorts are generally incredible losers who have the time but not the mental fortitude to farm

 

 

For people who want (a) this is great news. For everyone else it's "stfu! gimme more guns/mobs to killlll!". I enjoy voices, but I do have to agree that having "big names" to do your voices in a game is rather silly. Best just grab a random Joe at the corner of the street and pay him 10$ to do a few voice-overs. Only way it makes sense to get proper actors is probably if you're working off a movie IP and you can get the actual actors to lend their voices to the game.

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

What is the one thing that pretty much everyone who has something nice to say about TOR agrees is it's best feature?  The narrative.  Good voice acting greatly improves the presentation of that narrative.  If they had stuck with text boxes and spent that money in other areas, the likely result isn't trading a great narrative experience for mediocre gameplay, it's trading that great experience for a game which is consistently mediocre, across the board.  Probably not the smartest move, better to do one pillar well than all of them poorly.

I guess I can see the logic in that, but planning for your voice acting to be a "strong pillar" while the rest of your game is poor/mediocre/missing promised features...is crazy. I mean as I said before, I'm not knocking people that play mmorpgs mainly for the narrative and rpg expierience. I guess i'm just of the mind that none of that matters unless you have a polished and immersive game. If I want a good story, I can go buy one of the many star wars paperbacks for 8 bucks and not waste my time on playing through an entire mmo.  There is also the fact that throwing money at problems doesn't always matter...perhaps the problem with swtor was simply poor planning and resource management from the get go. Hopefully ESO is a good game that also has good voice acting, i just tend to be very cautious about mmos these days.

At least its good for a polish standpoint? 

The "good majority" of mmo players? Tera is all about "pew pew", graphics and shiny combat. No emphasis on quests and  lore. And of course the game is doing very well since it has the good maj.. No. It doesn't. 

This person is a good example on how MMO players are the biggest obstacles to creating a good MMO.

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

Massively does not, nor has it ever meant one couldn't;t solo if they preferred.,  Massively means that there are others in your world.  It is there to give immersion and a sense of a real world.

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!

Heh, you must not have read many Star Wars books.  If you want a *good* story, you should stay away from most of them.

My opinion on TOR is that it is exactly the game someone familiar with BioWare should have expected.  They've never been really known for being good at anything other than story and the presentation of that story, they've only been known for being "good enough" at the other elements that people don't get frustrated and quit playing before they see the whole story.

As for ESO, we have to wait for launch (or at least the NDA drop) before people can say anything educated about how well it holds up.  What we can say for sure though, is that *if* the writing is well done, then with this voice cast the narrative experience of the game is not going to be an aspect people can reasonably complain about.  It may even beat TOR in that respect, which wouldn't be good for TOR, since narrative is almost it's only selling point.

On the risk of overstepping the law: but ESO is NOTHING like SWTOR.

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?

They are not going to have a "skip" feature, on the first run through, on this game.  If you make an alt and talk to the same person you already talked to then you can skip, if not you can't.  You can't just skip through and know why you are doing something.  You might as well just mindlessly run through the game.  I for one am glad they will not allow skipping, the game should be played properly so you can get the most enjoyment out of it.

Wouldn't you think, its a better idea to spend the money on things people will be doing all the time on every character they make?

I like swtor's main questline being voice acted. I didn't need every quest done. I didn't need well known people, just actors who can do their lines.

This isn't even about polish. Its using big names to get more people to buy the product.

 

We are in 2014 not 2004, voice acting is expected across the board for any non indie title

You missed his point completely, he's not saying there should be zero voice acting, he's saying there isnt really a need for big name voice actors. Reason being, quite a few people don't bother with dialog, and if they do they would only go through it once and skip it next time around, it just seems unnecessary to bring big name actors for this, like Ryowulf said. Also as another person pointed out some people wont know who they are or care.

 

Imo i don't mind voice acting, it's a nice addition and engages me more, but tbh i don't care who does it, as long as it's done well, you could have Tom the plumbers son doing it. I feel they could have used the money for polishing up mechaincs or putting it aside for more content and just got a decent unknown actor in. Just seems there using these big name to generate hype, like when you see celebreities staring in Christmas pantos

I agree that the big names are probably mostly for the marketing value.  But it is nice to know we will get the quality, as opposed to Skyrim, where it sounds like they actually did have Tom the plumber's son do it, and it turned out horribly.  Hell, even if a voice actor isn't bad, after hearing the exact same voice come out of at least thirty different NPCs (many of whom have a substantial amount of dialogue) you have to question the judgment of whoever was in charge of that aspect of a game.

Good move for ESO, I'd like to hear some quality voice acting from recognizable voices.

After NDA is lifted I would love to see how this game is so similar to SWTOR by all means do explain when it is.

Didn't say anything about how similar; just said it was an exaggeration to say they are "NOTHING" alike.
