    Yeah, I'm not going to pay for another WoW clone. The Elder Scrolls doesn't have an interesting enough story to keep me interested. The combat, immersiveness and freeroam in the Elder Scrolls games is what made the series good.

    I'm excited for it too after the beta but I swear this is said in every MMO-related thread.
    I've even been seeing it in non-MMO threads.

    Yeah I was very conflicted during the betas.
    On one hand I was really addicted to it but on the other, I didn't want to play too much and spoil stuff.

    I feel like this game is gonna be crazy boring. There's even only 6 ability slots.

    which includes your primary and alternate weapon attack

    That's half of what makes Elder Scrolls good to me. I hate it when Elves are just the sexy characters.

    Guild Wars isn't the same though...

    You don't have to pay to play (other than the initial purchase) and that's why conventional MMOs have so much riding on them. You have to make an AMAZING game to make people pay $15 a month to keep playing.

    When you have an MMO-like game that isn't quite persistent MMO outside of towns then it isn't as big a deal.

    But, Guild Wars 2 is persistent from what I've heard. There was a viddoc about how paying monthly is now ridiculous.

    Holy shit, this is a travesty... the guy in the interview is like a typecast businessman, he can't come up with one solid satisfying answer on why the game is any good, it just reeks of "well fuck, this game is screwed".

    How can you call it elder scrolls if you don't have the option for first person combat?

    That's one of the things that makes the series so unique. If the next regular game was third-person only I probably wouldn't buy it, and I certainly won't be playing this if it's just WoW in Tamriel.

    I think you're thinking about Guild Wars 1. You aren't on your own when outside towns unless grouped like in Guild Wars 1, It's a full on MMO now basically.

    The combat
    You mean the, hit shit until it's dead combat? Nothing good to see here.

    It will obviously bomb, because "Fun MMORPG" is an oxymoron.

    Edited:

    At least until developers realize that copying WoW will not achieve anything but knowing the industry and how much money required to make an MMORPG, it will probably never happen.

    DDO had some pretty fun combat. You actually click every time you want to attack, and you could move around while doing it and dodge.

    Too bad nobody picked up on that.

    The only way this will be a huge success is if they stick to the typical TES gameplay. With the first person and third person views, and the various weapons and spells you can put into both hands. If they have that, they have my money.

    It won't. They have already said multiple times that it won't.

    The game has been in development loooong before Skyrim and it isn't even made by the same company. They've already stated that it will be a traditional third-person hotkey based MMO such as World of Warcraft.

    As you can see by the pictures, it has nothing to do with TES.
