This is not a flame thread it is an honest opinion...
The issues I see with the game are actually nothing the developer can actually do about. First off, Elderscrolls to me has always been about me playing the "hero" . When you have thousands of hero's you really don't feel much like a hero anymore. There is nothing the developer can do as it is now a multiplayer game. So I get that aspect, but that's the strike one for me.
Second the combat (might be too early to actually judge the final product) is very stale. I seen other threads bring this is up but when I personally watched the videos the first time, my thought was "where is the bow ? ok probably not finished yet, so ok is that all the melee combat?" point to this was, when I seen it, it seemed very blend more so then games like gw2. Don't take me wrong , gw2 has some "Decent" moves and animations etc, but this version just lost me.
Third the issue with the world in general, watching multiple videos now I see the same issues I had with SWTOR. Where is the swaying grass, moving trees or life for that matter? Again alpha/beta? it just seems like a rushed game.
Fourth why is it that every caster and every animation comes with what seems to me as anime sparkly end graphics. Flodding a screen with sparklies doesn't make it look better does it?
Ok , so the fans can hate post me now, Obviously many of you are looking foward to this , but for me I just don't get it, I see nothing elderscrolls here other then the lore. Sorry I just don't see it. So why post about it? Maybe to have an actual discussion without it becoming flame bait? I don't know but it seems the fans are a bit crazed, but then, I was a fan of SWTOR and those that told me I was wrong about it where right, I mean don't take me wrong, I had a good 3 months in that game, but yeah after the main story was over there wasn't a game to be had. In this game, I just don't see what's all the big hubbub, if it is for the reason of being Elderscrolls, I don't even see a game here remotly close to any of the single player games.
Mind you that this is not single player, but alas I just don't see it. If maybe they added in the tech like WoW has with as you progress things change in your perspective (IE towns destroyed on my screen , on yours it's till fine etc) it might be a step in the right direction. As of now thou, having npcs cheer me or hate me for what i have done doesn't equal emmersion in my eyes. Anywho, that's my issues with ESO, there are fans obviously but I just don't get it. Seems like another MMO rehash in a new skin.
