I love the Elder Scrolls games. However, after following this a bit I have my doubts. The cinematic trailer could be renamed "WoW 2" and it would fly. That's how cliche of a generic looking trailer it is. Then there's the gameplay trailer, and while the graphics were pretty, I saw little room for innovation past what other mmo's have offered.
I'm getting a feeling that the hype for this game is similar to the hype for SWTOR. Many were in love with it through development because of the IP, and after it released the hype fell apart as people realized that although 'fun', it was still your cookie cutter mmo.
Perhaps the best feature I see this game having is the combat system, that is inspired by the single player games it comes from. Although imo, I never thought the Elder Scrolls combat mechanics were all that great to begin with. They were still acceptable however. By far my favorite part of the games were the exploration.
Now i'll admit, there's too little information to go by to make a truly informed decision about this. However, i've noticed many of the same trends for this mmo's information releases and the hype it garners that I have seen with other mmo's that were sure to 'succeed'. Now a lot of those mmo's are on a cheap free to play model.
Anyways, I think many of us have been tricked by an IP before. When the IP is so amazing, it's easier to forget that it's not immune to failure. I'll remain cautiously skeptical until further information is released that could convince me otherwise. Other than that, I've seen none worth getting hyped for yet. Actually, my disappointment for what I've seen is why I am here. Before any of you say it I will say, 'I want this to be my cup of tea, I really do'.
Lastly, I hate to say it. But while subjective to myself. I've been right about how most mmo's would be received after release for the last few years. I'm not a prophet, I just follow trends very closely.
