A Skeptic Look @ ESO

First off, Talos bless the lot of you for the tremendously positive feedback on my last video! It reminds me why I love making gaming commentary in my free time. I wrote an article yesterday solely from the viewpoint of an Elder Scrolls Online skeptic. It's my first in a two part series that aims to show the arguments of an ESO skeptic and an ESO optimist. I've been reading quite a bit, some would say too much, here on the forums and in other places, so I could best represent both sides. So, if you're more like me and believe the Elder Scrolls Online could make for an epic MMORPG, I'm begging that you resist the knee-jerk reaction of disliking this video :P





So there you have it. Before anyone gets on my back for using too much Skyrim footage and not enough Morrwind or Oblivion gameplay, it's in order to relate to as many TES players as I can. Not mention the fact that Morrowind and Oblivion are no longer running well on my computer :(((((

Don't forget to cast you vote on the ESO BLOG!

FYI I'm going to take a breather (probably do some lore vids) before the video where I show the arguments in favor of ESO. You could help me out by posting why the Elder Scrolls MMO makes you hard. I'd love you give you guys a shout-out in that vid :)

Very nice video. After watching that I can state with great certainty that I am on the side of the Optimist.

I agree with a lot of the skeptic points on the issue even if I disagree with them to a extent because it has already said things won't be that way... but I am optimistic. I have always said if these games were MMORPGs my soul would be sold. xD

Very good observations in your video. I am a raging optimist - let us hope that 5 years can give us a good attention to the little details that make TES games grrr..eeaaatttt! Devil


TESO - - Multiplayer: "M'aiq does not know this word. You wish others to help you in your quest? Coward! If you must, search for the Argonian Im-Leet, or perhaps the big Nord, Rolf the Uber. They will certainly wish to join you." M'aiq the Liar.

"Va Khaj Dar - Khajiity's united? M'aiq will join!" M'aiq the Liar

i agree with most points and would definatley rather have seen a co-op version of the E/S first,but we can only hope beyond hope that they can pull this off and make a MMO to eclipse all others.

Thanks! I'm glad to hear you're firmly on the side of the optimist. I hope the video didn't turn any optimists into skeptics though :/ But if it did, I'll bring our optimist arguments roaring back in the next video of the series.

Gathering data 01010110110001. I want this optimist video to be the ultimate hype generator for ESO. If I do it right you should be able to tie a skeptic down to a chair and have them watch this video and it'll instantly assimilate them into ESO believers. That will be the goal anyway :/

Who is Talos? By the Eight it sounds like heresy to me!

Working on compiling a list of the optimist argument. If you have some good reasons fans need to play ESO speak now or forever hold thy tongue. If you come up with some good points I haven't written down yet I'll even quote you in the vid. Right next to Todd Howard. What an honor!

Can you list what you have so far? This would help a ton.

You should obviously counter some points off of the devil's advocate video :P
