Nearly every MMO announcement and launch I've experienced since my early EQ days has only ended in disappointment. I can't take it anymore, not with The Elder Scrolls.
SWG was a huge disappointment at launch largely because it had so little Star Wars in it. I grew to like it as a game system, only to have my enjoyment shattered by NGE.
Earth and Beyond...a brilliant space exploration MMO, killed off by EA
Matrix Online...couldn't have been farther from the Matrix.
Lord of the Rings Online not the wide open explorable sand box I wanted, begrudgingly played the themepark ride until the gear grinding lameness made it tedious.
Star Trek Online....'nuff said
Age of Conan....
And now the ESO...my heart can't take any more disappointment. I can't sit and watch this train wreck happening before my eyes. I can't bear the inevitable sychophants nor the predictable haters, the non-stop senseless debate over nothing, and a debate that will have zero impact because the devs on their high horse with their reems of data gleened from metrics will tell me how I should want to play the game. It feels also predictable how this will turn out.
Someone PM me in 20 years, and I'll come back to this genre to see if it has changed at all.
