Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Eh...I think I'll pass on the MMO. I like Skyrim well enough but I think I'm going to need a break soon. I already wiped out Alduin (pretty easily, too - was kind of surprised at that - Dragonrend and a pair of fully-charged fire/ice staffs with black soul gems did the trick) and I'm looking at doing some mop-up missions w/ the Circle, Thieve's Guild and Daedric Artifacts and that will be a wrap. I am looking forward to the new DLC that's coming out, though.

It sounds terrible. It sounds like they're going about it the wrong way.

I love it - I was told that fans would react this way, and my friend called it. "Contempt prior to investigation" is the pertinent phrase.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I'm shocked it's taken them this long to make an MMO. I don't have any interest in MMORPGs (I'm more a single player RPG kinda guy), but I'm curious to see how this competes with WoW. Should be interesting.

Don't get me wrong - it will probably be quite good. Bethesda has a fairly decent track record with their stuff. I'm just not a big MMO person myself. Never have been, never will. I will suspend my own judgment and let others with greater experience in the genre make the call.

Well, all the features we're hearing so far make it sound like they're going about it the wrong way. Like they're trying their hardest to make it not be like an Elder Scrolls game. It sounds like Elder Scrolls in name only.

If you look at this link, it's not very promising:

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Doing it differently doesn't mean doing it wrong.

Of course, the essence of fandom often seems to be a strong liking for Mom's mac-and-cheese.

That's too bad. Skyrim was my first foray into the Elder Scrolls series, and it looks like it'll be my last, too.

True, and often different can be good. I don't deny that. But sometimes there are qualities and features that make things what they are. They become trademarks; things that people expect if they've been doing them a certain way. You remove the trademarks and still use the name and there's no doubt people will feel like it's in name only, and it starts to feel like they're not making a game for Elder Scrolls fans, but MMO players. The art and the screens look like something out of a Korean MMO, not an Elder Scrolls game. Ultimately it just doesn't look like an Elder Scrolls game and with the feature set I linked to, it just starts to feel wrong.
