My issue is trying to translate an open RPG based on overpowered builds into an MMO.  My spidey sense says something may not go well.

Compared to morrowind, skyrim is very much a themepark

Instead they scrapped that idea and went ThemePark and, short of the Elder Scrolls skin, I dont see how those two RPGs will have anything to do with each other. It is another example where they (ab)use an excellent IP for a quick cash grab.

It is like taking a piss on your fanbase and creating something completely else.

 

there was never anything sandbox in a MMO kind of way about elder scrolls games. Sandbox for single player games are define by their open world design. Look it up. Nothing to do with player made content. All MMO have open worlds. Adding multiplayer to skyrim or oblivion and you get the same gameplay found in any themepark mmo. There is nothing unique about the elder scrolls gameplay thatsnot found in a themepark

Nonsense. Themepark MMOs do not have open world design, they are clearly designed to funnel you from quest hub to quest hub, level bracketted zone to level bracketted zone and your character is carefully designed to be able to fight the content for that particular level bracket.

Skyrim was not designed like that. There was a story line that you could follow but you could also go out completely on your own and enjoy the game because the world was designed so that you could do that and still enjoy the game. ThemePark games, altough you could do it that way, are not designed as such.

And sandbox MMOs are also not defined by player made content but rather by open world design. However since they are MMOs, player made content is one of the elements typically associated with sandbox MMOs. However a ThemePark could also have it, just look at the STO foundry system, so it is not direcly related to sandbox MMOs.

Skyrim was a themepark - just because you could go out and explore does not make it any less themeparky. You can explore in GW2 also - that is how I am leveling one character, just going out ans seeing what is there.

 

You are picking at nits and just throwing out as much non-information as possible to see if it sticks. There are no hard and fast rules so please stop trying to invent them.

 

Let us wait and see what it will be BEFORE bringing on the hate or the hype engine.

You keep repeating that but dont say why. How was Skyrim a ThemePark? The whole world was designed so you did not need to follow it in a linear fashion. You could, if you wanted to, but that is the beauty of open world design, you can do what the hell you want and the world is designed to do just that. That is what defines a virtual world and sandbox and what is contrary to ThemePark designed MMOs which are carefully designed to funnel you from point to point and punish you if you go of that path.

Dragon Age is a perfect example of a ThemePark like RPG where you are meant to follow a linear storyline and it would not make much sense if you did not because the "world" was not designed for it. Now if you dont see the difference between that and Skyrim then you have simply failed to grasp why Skyrim was such a great game.

Blind Hatred?  The hate it's getting is because they locked races to factions and then limit the area we can explore.  You are the one that sounds blind.  If you can't take a moment to read what people are saying then you shouldn't comment.

No, it is a prediction based on the data we have. In life things are not always handed to you but you have to make assumptions,  predictions and even guess. If you are unable to do that then goodluck getting through life basing everything you do in 100% verifiable evidence.

Yep, it's a cash grab, sorry you didn't get a sandbox bro, you really need one it seems.

Personally don't even care if it's a cash grab, last time I spent money on a mmo was 2008. I'll spend some money on this after enjoying games like W.Gretzky Hockey 1-3 (1989-1993 or so), The Terminator, (need I say when?) Fallout 3, Skyrim and so on.

Don't care about the superb sandbox theory either, not one bit

Remeber there were only a couple people on the GW2 "hate train" to begin with. I think it's fair to say that it was a 70% apporve 30% disapprove beakdown pre-launch. 

 

TESO started the other way around with many more disapprove than approve. 

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

im pretty sure he said the lower level areas are locked but the game opens up as you gain levels. he even hinted that races from opposing factions can possibly be in the same guild with a *wink* *wink* *nudge* nudge*..basically they are keeping their cards close to their chests and you have very few facts.

i have only see that mentioned by a couple people i have seen numerous times people posting they hate this game already because it's branded a themepark.. i highly doubt any of them have played beta tried the game in any fasion or have any experience in it at all so i'd call it pretty blind..

Open themepark vs directed themepark.

Yep I find that pretty funny. They pretend to be blind from all the info which has been released and then accuse others, who have looked at this info, of being blind.

Blind hatred is unreasonable.

But the hatred surrounding TESO gets less and less blind everyday: people are holding what the devs say and show against them. And as others have said, even the historically over-positive writers here at MMORPG.com have all stated TESO is going to be a more or less typical themepark.

So... what? Criticizing TESO as a themepark is what? Besides true?

ES is a very popular and much beloved RPG IP and many fans of that IP are legitimately complaining that the MMO they are trying to sell is almost nothing like the SPG games that made the IP popular.

Guess what?

Too Bad.

When a developer chooses to use a popular IP, they get the marketing bump from the name recognition, which was the point, but they also get the "baggage" of what that IP brings to the table. And if they deviate too far from being "true" to that IP, then they can pay the penalty for that with the fans.

Which is what is happening here.

TESO will be/is nothing like the SPGs of the ES IP and Zenimax is going to hear about that.

And frankly, that is not unreasonable.

You can make 3 different characters and explore everything while also getting 3 different story lines through each faction.

A ThemePark is ofcourse not completely linear, just as a real ThemePark. They are all relatively linear because they provide you with rides (as more than one), in specific zones, for specific level brackets and once done you move on to the next ride for the next level bracket. That is what makes it linear and no ThemePark I have ever played did not follow that model.

I heard Secret World might be like that but that would be an exception and I strongly doubt that you can go anywhere you want at any level because it seems to be pretty story based which by definition makes it linear.

Also never heard of the term open themepark, did you just make that up?
