I know people have different opinions.
"but if it doesn't coincide with mine, I will bitch about it like a sixth grader."
I don't fault them for not liking the game. If you haven't actually played it, however, you're being nothing but an ignorant joke.
I'm not going to spend 60 dollars to somehow validate my ability to argue that the game looks boring as shit. I've watched plenty of videos that show the exact same thing: A bog standard MMO with an Elder Scrolls paint job, albeit with decent combat.
I'm also not going to spend 60 dollars just to find out that your taste in games is likely just fucking terrible. *snipped the sad rage fit*
You've just insulted everyone here who said they absolutely love the game. And why is that? Because my opinion doesn't coincide with yours. Noisy hypocrite.
Anyway, I hated the beta but I love the game. This game is for Elder Scrolls players -- gamers who respect a need for immersion, lore, and generally like to "take their time". This is the first MMO where exploration is truly rewarded, which adds a layer to it that, to me, feels like a revolutionary thing to MMO's. Almost every NPC has something interesting to say (about the environment, threads, political stuff, lore in general, etc.) and almost every quest has it's own interesting
story to tell with it's own climax.
It's also a big no-no for powerlevelers. There's also no world PVP. While many would understandably disagree with me here, I like this decision because it's in and of itself immersion breaking. Imagine taking a breath staring out into the sunset or closely listening to the story between two NPC's, right before being flanked from the side by a lvl 50 asshole.
Like all ES games, this game is about immersion. Like all ES games, this game is about story. Like all ES games, this game is about exploration. Like all ES games, this game is about combat.
Unlike all ES games, this game is, however, an MMO. Don't forget that.
