OP  12/15/12 7:29:25 PM#1

Every game that comes out; has generally an outstanding and super hyped anticipation from the patrons of these forums.

Each and every time; ive been sucked in by everyone elses flag waving cheerleaders; and every time; these games end up garbage.

My new indicator of a possibly great upcoming game; is if "you" the collective community hate on it.. ill probably end up liking it.

Considering it will just be another cookie-cutter mmo with limitations out the rear end........... seems like it will just be another good IP destroyed and will bomb in 3 months. They keep making the same game over and over with new graphics and names for items. In the end, its the exact same game as the last 301 themeparks released this past few years.

If you like themeparks, there is a good chance you will like this game.

If you are looking for depth, sandbox elements, and some sort of "meaning", I would say you will be disappointed.

I also do not think that whether this community likes or dislikes a game is a suitable indicator of whether you will like some game or not.

Just my opinion, not saying this is inevitably correct.

If you liked DAoC, you probably want to follow TESO.  

 

Opinion here is often overexaggerated, for good or ill.

 

But definitely check the details to see if it meshes with your interests.

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

 It's a false indicator. Every game is hated here by someone. No exceptions.

Time will tell... it is just a matter of putting the themepark core in a shiny wrapper, like GW2 did. When that happens most people here will fall for hype and love it. Atleast for a while.

You guys are so predictable. As soon as a themepark game is mentioned, the cynical hive-mind forms up to post the same boring rhetoric over and over and over. I swear I could make a posting bot that would pretty much cover these type of posts.

Way too early to be hyped about this game, especially with what they've shown us. Look for interviews/videos man, see for yourself and decide. Dont let us influence that decision, just inform you on our views of it. thumbs up.

EDIT: yay im autoquoting. not in response to either of you, sorry.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

The only indicator that should mean anything is - you, are you liking the game, is it fun for you when you play it? That is the only indicator that should matter.

Pre launch hype should never be a determining factor for anybody.

Seems like business as usual here.One segment of the community gets it's hate on for the game another get's it's hype on.No indicator one way or another just same old same old.

I agree pre-hype launch anywhere means nothing. All I know is I feel like everything is water downed, there are to many cooks in the kitchen. You try to please everybody and nobody is pleased.

Look at GW2 such details and great citys, but there are ports in every city and you can just port to another city. Where is the sense of exploring I remember taking a month or two before I even stumbled on another city in early games. This  would suggest they tried to please the old school people and the new generation. So what happens they have to put new patches in on a monthly basis, or everybody is gone.

Is anybody happy, do you think any of these companys are happy with their numbers(other then Wow)? And half them at this point are gold sellers.

If you let bitching or hype determine if a game is fun for you, you are just a sheep.

It's quite refreshing to see the community being critical pre-launch for once instead of hyping yet another generic themepark as omg teh best game evar. Perhaps the time has finally come when MMO players (or, well, at least the posters on this forum) are beginning to grow tired of the same reskinned game being released every year.

Besides, hype leads to unreasonable expectations - now there's still a chance that it ends up being good and we'll be positively surprised. :)

 actually,the truth is even funnier than that, it isnt the haters or the lovers,lol,it's how many check it out for themselves,form their own opinions etc., and, if enough like it,the game succeeds,simple as that. Now I am not interested in the elder scrools mmo one way or the other,so I wish them well,just beware of extremes,from wither side, check it out for yourself

Thats because the newer games are so predictable. I mean how many great IP's have been destroyed by crap work and rushed mmo's? SWTOR for example, people like you defended it so badly, but it took a little while for it to sink in.

Many of us are tired of these piss poor mmorpg's the game companies have been releasing. Single player console style rpg's with so many limits and no features.

But already from all information combined on the game, it will be another wow clone cookie cutter. Your hyped about future failure? I want more out of my mmorpg's, glad you are happy with limits and linear gameplay. This game sounds no different than the last 200 themeparks released.

 

 

Hope im wrong, but by the sounds of it.............

+1 OP.

Back in my console day (15 yrs ago), I would walk into games stop and ask the guy at the counter "Is this game any good?" if he said "No it sucks." I would be more inclined to buy. 

 

"Horse Breeder" was on of the best console games ever. Breed you horses then race them?! gg. Guy at the counter said it sucked lol.

 

60% of mmorpg reminds me of the guy behind the counter.

You have either A) not read anything about the game or B) are spouting nonesense

How is it a wow clone when the char progression is completely different, the combat mechanics are completely different, the itemization is completely different, the pvp is completely different etc etc?

The only similarity is that it shares the same genre
