20ish minutes of Elder Scrolls Online gameplay
So...yeah. Thoughts? From what I've heard this is an incredibly early build/on the lowest graphic settings for bug testing, so I suppose that's worth bearing in mind. After all there's no hands in first person etc etc...I'm just going what I'm reading on the net but a few players have come out and said that the game is much more polished than this now, which I can believe. Graphically it looks worse than everything we've seen so far.

Well, I won't comment on the graphics or such since they're a WIP.
What I do find interesting is the use of voiced quest givers, the existence of some sort of stealth system (not just some rogue vanish-magic as in other MMOs). Oh, and Soul Healer? Really, is it going to be Elder WoW Online?

On one hand - Yay, explore new places!
On the other hand - It's a freakin' MMO with nothing exciting.
If this was a sort of a sandbox offline game, or something like Guild Wars 2, I'd probably buy into this. But otherwise?

Basically what they've done is made another WoW like MMO, just so bored of them, same shit since 2005. I've been so bored of the genre since then, there hasn't been a single good one release, they've all flopped too, so I cannot be alone. I always thought I'd love an Elder Scrolls MMO because it was basically like an MMO anyways, only it would be a fun one, sadly though they're not making The Elder Scrolls, they're making WoW.
Now before anyone who hasn't played EQ until after WoW says "but wow copied EQ", 1. that is another argument and 2. EQ pre WoW was nothing like what EQ has done to clone itself into WoW today.

Pro-tip: If you're going to run backwards through hostile territory, swivel the camera around to check behind you as you run. That way, you won't go out like a chump to a couple of wolves.
And holy shit! A character creation screen where your character keeps their fucking head still while you're working on it, instead of bopping all over the place like they're at an AC/DC gig. That, coupled with the first person view is enough for me to at least give the trial version of the game a go when it drops.

Well, that appeared to be staggeringly-boring.
Unless there's some sort of magical, intangible quality to the gameplay in the final version... I'm predicting a flop.

It's not working anymore, but I've seen it somewhere else. I was hoping it would be better. But it still looks good for me.

Why didn't they just use all that money to make a dlc for Skyrim in which they allowed characters from SP to be imported to multiplayer so you could have co-op at least.

Also, it's a prequel and this ain't Lordran.to wound the autumnal city.

We used to call them mmorpg, but they are better described as wwowpg.
