    And FFXIV.  I wonder how well this is going to work.  I don't see it going well, but I'm cynical.

    You mean the game is casual, boring, and could be played successfully by a 6 year old child?

     

    PC complexity is dead.

    I give a look up and i see bunch of old conservative  pc players. I'm gamer from the time of zx 81 but my mind has evolved (ok my english not so much :)). Do you guys really think that sitting in front of  pc makes you something special and  better from console gamers? We all know why is pc so super popular again, because of facebook and forums and i think that  smashing  keys on keyboard  or turning mouse around doesn't make you ''computer freak'' or something like Bill Gates. So stop to show up because how we can see from Eve Online pc and consoles will share same world in future.

    More buttons doesnt equal more complex gameplay...I have played so many games in the past 15 years of my life that had more complex gameplay and requires more twitch skill than any of the mmos released since WoW and some of those games didnt even require more than 4 buttons.  Games like portal are proof of that.

    If the developers are creative they can make the game complex regardless of how many buttons the controller has.

    You can play GW2 with a gamepad

    I have been loosely following this game off and on for a bit now.  I am a big Elder Scrolls fan overall.  From following so far has been a bunch of ups and down, nothing has ever really made me fell like 'I must play this game'.  This recent development has to go into the down category for me.  Console again a downer, bad controls, less complexity, a drain on resources and a drain on focus, and of course the younger audience catered to.  As well as the 2014 release, if its not delayed again, shows me that there betas have not been doing so well and there is much work to be done still.  I kept wondering why we have heard so little info or videos of this game if it was to be released, I guess the answer was, it isn't ready.  I'm fine with companies taking their time to get it right, but just see it as a bad sign in my book.

     

    And to the posts above, GW2, complex?  Who the hell are you kidding?  It has its good points but complexity is not one of them.  So bad example.  You could have said Skyrim is on consoles, that would be a more relevant comparison.  And many people hated that part of Skyrim (the controls).

    i hope same accounts for consoles and pcs..

    Damn they delayed it, but I'm glad they aren't just going to rush and launch early like SWTOR with a buggy incomplete game.

    PC version going down the drain smaller maps(oh wait no big open world but 3 smaller ones) awefull controlls lesser graphics, and yes less complexity for our console friends bah:(

  • GroovyFlowerGroovyFlower RdamPosts: 1,245Member
    Thats why zenimax say its not an mmo but a multiplayer game so consoles can also handle this game.

    More buttons doesnt equal more complex gameplay...

    No, it equals more complex game design, though...

    Dunno why people already start jumping the gun when 20 years ago we had complex games on consoles.

    Iam not a ESO fan at all, dont give  a panny worth for this mmo, but saying concole lololol trashcan shit is abit to fast.

     

    Look at FF ARR that comes both to PC / PS3 / PS4, it can add alot of players and still keep the game solid complex and high grade.

    Dont judge before you have seen it, gaming is changing and the new consoles are not much worse then a good pc or in some cases even more powerfull then most pc's that havent been upgraded inwhile.

    just check this tittle and its ingame play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zek3eUBHlE4

    it shows that its realy a powerfull machine, much more powerfull then the Xone.

     

    Wait and see people.

    One has nothing to do with the other.

    FFXI has been going for 11 years and is one of the most hardcore and complex MMO's available.  Well, it once was.
