Do you think ESO is "The one MMO You Will Need"? If so, say so.

Many of us been searching for that one new MMO that will be our new main MMO for ages to come.

I dont want to seem like I am trying to glorify Elder Scrolls Online.

But who here thinks Elder Scrolls Online may finally be that one true MMO that can be your top MMO for the ages to come?

    I can't think of any other themepark I'd rather play, so yes, other than all those sandboxes coming this is the mmo i need.

    ESO will last for 30 days, exactly the amount of free time you get with the game... maybe one additional month, to span the gap until Wildstar releases...

    I think I'm either burnt out or highly dissappointed in every MMO since FFXI/WoW vanilla!

    Below is where we can disscuss and come up with new ideas for Sandparks!

    Hard to say with EQN coming down the road, that will give me plenty of time to play ESO until I can check what Sony has going by then.

    I'm all for a sandbox, the themepark thing is killing me. What really drags me into ESO is its Lore and detail.

    So far this is the best MMO that's much more in the RPG realm than most.

    I'm having fun at the moment. To me that's all that counts. I have no idea if I will keep having fun as it depends on changes, nerfs, content updates etc. etc......

     

    I'm just gonna enjoy the game and not dtress if this is "THE ONE"

    1. You have the right to shut the hell up.
    2. You have the right to a opinion just as soon as I tell you what it is.
    3. You have the right to die quietly or kicking and screaming. It doesn't really make a difference because you're dead either way.

    Its a decent game, but still has no pull for me at this time.

    If I stopped playing today, I wouldn't feel like I am missing much honestly - just personal opinion.

    I think max level PvP is what is keeping me going, the questing to get there however is not exciting to me, feels like a chore at this time.

    At this time no, could change to a yes at 50.

    Its the first time in probably 10 years that I have played an mmo that has had the immersion factor this one is having on me. Could be a case of it hitting me at the right time, idk, but I'm loving every moment.
  • KnotwoodKnotwood Missoula, MTPosts: 1,103Member

    Its,  supercalifragilisticexpialidocious  Indubitably!
    <--- This is how I feel about this game!

     

  • Soki123Soki123 Kelowna, BCPosts: 1,478Member Uncommon
    Garbage game, so no.
  • superconductingsuperconducting Rochester, NYPosts: 843Member Uncommon

    One of the best mmos of late to come out, that's for sure.

    As for "the only mmo", I doubt that. There's so many exciting projects on the horizon- EQNext, Star Citizen, etc.

    Or your like me and just tired of playing the same game over and over with a new skin.   some people say that is being burnt out, i call it lack of options and creativity in the market.

  • AbardomasAbardomas New York, NYPosts: 159Member

    Yup it will be the first one I play to top level and keep playing long after that

    Well this thread turned into a back-slap  lol

    Why are you so irrelevant? >:)

    I wouldn't play this POS if you paid me (Okay well I would if it was at least $20/hr, but I would still hate my job) so no would be my answer to the original question.

    I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

    still on the wall. tho many a time i almost gave in. but really f2p has been keeping me mmo stringed out well enough not to buy anything coming out this year.

    my personal plan is to save money as much as possible till 2015 or early 2014 then buy the oculus rift, upgrade pc to high end specs, and wait for the awesome VR mmos to come out or an Rpg. even whatever the content of the first AAA game built around the device gives me i wont care just as long as it looks great and feels great to play. only then will  the end all be all mmo show up for me. (well till we have bci's and such to give real control of characters)

    If it outdoes the sandboxes that are coming out on the horizon, then yes, absolutely. ESO has a lot to offer even at release, and with its lore has the capability to comfortably expand for years and years. The only thing holding it back is the fact that it is a themepark. However, it's a themepark done very, very well.

    If these upcoming sandboxes have sub-par combat, visuals, and character depth, then that's enough for to ESO come out on top for me.

    MMORPGs are great to look forward to after a hard day of work, but heaven is the ultimate reward for those who live Christ-like.

    Will def be playing this game for years to come! I'm just PO'd because I pre-ordered the game from lousy Wal-Mart and only getting 3 days early access. Just built pretty much a new computer for this game an I can't Freakin wait to dive in. Been downloading teso for like 3 days now. Well that and been downloading The Secret World just to see if this system can run that at max settings. Guess what The Secret World runs great with all settings maxed so Again I can't wait to see how it runs TESO!

    I can't Freakin wait till Tuesday morning, oh wait I get off work @ 2 AM  wtf? AAaarrgh! This is gonna kill me!

  • AvulAvul BerlinPosts: 196Member
    For me: Yes! It will be the MMO I'm playing for years to come. Hadn't have so much fun for a long time.. :)

    Elite: Dangerous - Space Exploration & Trading.

  • Entropy14Entropy14 Edmonton, ABPosts: 670Member Uncommon

    In all honesty, and nothing against TESO, but its getting such awesome reviews, but being a themepark, with no very little endgame other then PVP most ppl will quit this much sooner then they think.

     

    Same goes  for Wildstar, all these games have very little substance.  We will see a lot of MMO game hoping until someone finally puts effort in making a real game with some depth and a reason to play.

    I think the only way for a modern themepark to out last a sandbox would be to add sandboxy content, which is not in the works for TESO (that I'm aware of).  It does have a lot roleplay emotes, but no chat bubbles /grumble

     

    Themepark content gets consumed with limited replayability, unfortunately.  The saving grace will be how often new content gets pushed out, which is then contingent on how many customers stay beyond the first 1-3 months, how many dev's get laid off post-launch, and funding diverted into other projects, for example.

     

    ZOS should really have no excuse for not pushing out rapid content, especially since they aren't paying IP royalties.  Problem is the been-there, done-that already feelings :  "Today I single handedly saved the kingdom .. YAY!!" .. same quest, different game .. hrmmpf :/

    It's a themepark so I doubt, at least for me, it will be "the one true mmo".

    Havign said that, I've enjoyed playing it far more than most mmo's I've played.

    It's the first mmo where I've actually delved into crafting.

    I love the lore and the world.
