Going through this entire thread, I clearly see that a Majority of people see what I said and agree with me.  Including the review on the front of MMORPG.com.    its amazing how so many people get it, but someone like you cannot. 

 

As far as broken records go, Your the only one saying the same thing after a good 30 or 40 different people have agreed with me and praised this game.    So as far as broken records go, that's all I state, the thread speaks for itself....

 

I'll expect you to have another negative reply to this also, most people post their thoughts on a thread and move on, its clear this is not the case with you. So I must ask you to please show a little respect for others views then your own.  Its part of social tolerance and is a sign of good character.

Then we are not reading the same topic.

You really need to take it easy because all you are doing is making people hate ESO even more.

You have to also take into consideration your sample pool of opinions..  This is an ESO forum on MMORPG.com.  The majority of people are here looking for information about a game they like.  If you think this forum is a good place to discover what the majority of people think, you obviously don't work for Zogby.

Love the holier-than-thou attitude, too, such good character!

 

Considering you have followed my post up until now and have heard me say in my OP and following posts, that I am not saying this game is an old school game.  But am in fact saying that this game hold true to Old School High Adventure ideology which was the basis for creating the old school games as a reason for why I say what I do.   I will just have to assume you are trolling because you know 100% what I was saying, and now trying to twist my words to something I did not say....

 

People should be able to express their opinions on a forum and have them discussed without being pounced on by like a wolf with great prowess, or a big brother who thinks they are daddy, trying to make sure they do not say they enjoy the game and agree with me.   Its clear this game is going to get hate the size of WoW's...   because it is going to be as big as WoW, I can accept that.

 

All I ask is some restraint to allow others opinions be set forth and discussed without someone having to constantly jump on stage waving their banner of hate saying the same old thing over and over each time someone likes the game or expresses agreement with the OP.   That's all I have to say.

Honestly, you can only blame yourself when you make statements like these. Not to mention all the back handed insults in your OP and after that.

Even i don't take any of your posts seriously exactly for the similar reasons (highlighted part included). I mean it is hard to take someone seriously who claimed that ESO will have 10 million subs by end of the year and will sell 20 million on pc + console.

Here's hoping knotwood goes to a game like EVE-Online next in terms of PVP so we can all show him how much we "love" people that bend over and provide no real incentive for the games they may like/love to continue improving themselves.

Over the last few months, I seen over 5 people on these forums who hated this game with all their heart, come to love this game.  While 5 players who love Wildstar come over here and hate the game.....   I think its safe to say this game is going to have millions that I claim it will have.

ROFL, 5 people, comparing to millions. I know more people who were so hyped for TESO, and will never play it, why, because according to them it sucks. It won t have the millions you said. Maybe a lot of sales, but really millions. Nope won t happen. WoW will steal them right back when WoD comes out.

Yes, I have a question. When did you turn into a nutbar?

4/04/14 4:43:42 PM#148

It does have a old school feel to it, which is good in my book.

At least I don't feel like I have to rush to level cap to enjoy this game. I do get a immersion factor and reminds me of how Lord of the Rings online graphics should have been done in their game.

Let the record show, that the five most vocal people on this forum that hated this game, who felt the need to become activists against this game have come to love this game whole heartedly....     While those who love Wildstar or EQ Next,  two very cartoony and completely different genre then ESO are coming over here to show us they hate the game by camping posts on ESO nonstop about why it sucks to them, when they could never understand why someone like me loves this game...

 

I think I'm righ, and your right, I have to go play this game already, My researching timer is ready...   woot!   I truly hope you find what you are looking for in Wildstar as much as I found what I am looking for in ESO.   Don't worry I wont go over there to tell you how much I hate Wildsstar either.

Most people critique the game... you must be really young to not tell the difference between constructive criticism and bashing something which is just as destructive as what you are doing btw (stagnation = death for an MMO). I truly hope more "haters" are in the ESO community than these boards seem to indicate otherwise it won't even make it to F2P.

Since you bring up age, I looked on your profile for an age,  I know why you cannot understand where I cam coming from now...

Your 24, and you grew up in Romaina.  Most of the movies and culture I talk about and reasons why I love this game are not only a decade before you adulthood, but most of this was all an American Culture back in the day.  You see, I would literally have to take you back in time and to a different country to understand what I have said in the OP.  My apologies for not recognizing that sooner.  I'm pushing 40 and the Culture I listed is an Old School American Culutre from the early 80s to the 90s mainly. 

 

If you get a chance, watch all those movies I listed in the OP, and if you can identify with them, you'll understand how I view ESO.

I'm afraid you might just be 6 years short of understanding also.  Bill Murphey's review on front page of MMORPG should help you understand the age and time you had to be in to understand it.   Just off of Bill Murpheys' review I can see he knows the origin of the genre I talk about.    Let me tell you about the days of High Adventure....  

 

Watch all those movies I listed in the original post, and tell me that they are not some of the greatest movies of all-time...  and if you can not tell me that, then you have your reason for not understanding our love for the game.

When some people compare old school games to ESO, they might only see mechanics, but there is a vision.  That vision is what I love and talk about.   its a old school vision that has no mechanical limits on it, it is not the way you swing your sword, or how you press the x button or see a UI...  

Brad McQuaid ?

 

Vanguard had way better vision in my opinion, and looked amazing, the way an mmo should look and how an mmo should play , no loading screens.

 

TESO is the same old thing, with a few peices glued on from Skyrim.

Even though I agree with you about the loading screen, I think its impossible these days. In the age where people call EQ:Next's graphics childish dull, stupid and childish ... the developers are forced to use high resolution detailed worlds and thats a lot of gigabytes. It takes time to load all this. Hell, battlefield 4 is freaking gorgeous at ultra graphics, yet it takes about 2-3 minutes to load a map for me. I mean sure, I have an SSD to improve on that but I prefer having Gw2 on it. So yeah, point of my post is that we'll see loading screens more and more often for longer and longer periods of time. Unless hardware processing power quadriples every other year. 

ArcheAge has no loading screens for the entire outside world - which is several times bigger than all of ESO put together.

It has nothing to do with graphics, it has to do with game engine and design of the world.

 

 

 

One of the first things I did when I started ArcheAge was just run out into the world and explore. I have no words for how good it felt to finally play another true open world game. Not since Lineage 2 have I had to chance to just run out into the world knowing I could go anywhere I wanted to.  Just standing on a hill and looking out into to ocean is so amazing because you know that its somewhere that you can actually go and fully explore.  Its so good to know that there are no zones or channels and that everybody plays in the exact same game world. This is old school to me and its one of the many things that has been lost in the mmo genre. Its impossible for a themepark mmo to be old school.

When was the last time people even played a real " old school" mmo.  Wow pretty much killed their design and it's now 10 years old. I wonder if it's been long enough that the people who think eso is anything like an old school mmo just don't remember what an old school mmo even was anymore.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

You didn't even understand my reaction.... it just proves that age got nothing to do with mental maturity of a person.

As far as Bill is concerned he is excited about every new MMO and gives it high ratings.

I'm afraid you might just be 6 years short of understanding also.  Bill Murphey's review on front page of MMORPG should help you understand the age and time you had to be in to understand it.   Just off of Bill Murpheys' review I can see he knows the origin of the genre I talk about.    Let me tell you about the days of High Adventure....  

 

Watch all those movies I listed in the original post, and tell me that they are not some of the greatest movies of all-time...  and if you can not tell me that, then you have your reason for not understanding our love for the game.

You didn't even understand my reaction.... it just proves that age got nothing to do with mental maturity of a person.

As far as Bill is concerned he is excited about every new MMO and gives it high ratings.

I've not seen a single person of, or around, the age of 40 to use his language or get so easily excited.... maybe I am lacking experience but my gut tells me he boosted his age to get "forum cred"  and is somewhere around 17-20 years old in reality. There is no way in the seven Hells he could pass through high-school, college and I assume University, and their assorted trials and tribulations, this much like a duck through water.

 

And as for movies...lol... they've actually gotten markedly better since secondary markets have become more important with their film makers in tow ( sorry but for every Blade Runner you had gods only know how many sequels that ruined franchises, for every Wrath of Khan there was a massive shit like any of the movies that tried to emulate to success of the Police Academy just like how today for every LotR, Matrix, etc, there are Uwe Boll movies, horrible remakes, etc, only difference is good or bad today the movies come from all over not just a few sources).

My point has been proven, and I know you do not even know why...    Only an Old School High Adventure fan who grew up on all those movies in my original post could ever understand. 

 

You also listed all Sci-FI movies, when all the movies I listed in my Original post are High Adventure movies. Completely different genre.

Well I goofed around with D&D type of things when 3 way telephones were first used. Then we moved into dining rooms. I'm nearing 40 too. My street cred for gaming goes all the way back to a Tandy computer in the 80's. My good movies from the old days don't match yours - Clockwork Orange, Willow ok, Fire with Fire, Revenge of the Nerds,  Goonies, Explorers, Gremlins, Lost Boys, Wargames,  Bill and Ted, Coming to America, Weird Science, The Jerk, Cloak and Dagger, The last starfighter, Ghostbusters etc. I didn't like Labyrinth or Conan. Highlander was alright. I did watch transformers and he-man but we also had snorks and smurfs that I could get on when my brother wasn't taking over the tv.

Original Runescape is more old school than this game. They have grind and don't walk you through everything.

Let me ask you - do you have your quest markers off in ESO? If you don't have them off then how can you sit there with a straight face saying you have adventure. Even that I heard they only did halfway, it still puts a mark over the sub items in the quest and only keeps from marking the initial quest giver. Woopee, real adventurous.

All this talk of adventure and you blow off everything I mentioned about a cash shop spoiling the adventure. If the post was about adventure, buying in-game items would def. be in the discussion but they aren't because you don't want to talk about adventure, you want to live in fluffy cloud town. I think you post just to agree with yourself repeatedly because it's not for discussion.

You shouldn't have to say anything nice about this game - remember - 10 million will be playing it per your estimate.
