My fellow ESO enthusiasts,

I just thought I'd share an article that I formulated after reading some posts on various forums and talking with my Elder Scrolls friends. I've been following the Elder Scrolls series since Oblivion, and since then I've gone back and played Morrowind, and of course Skyrim. It's by far my favorite series of all time and I was so passionate about my article's message that I also made a tasteful video to go along with it:





I hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to hearing what you have to add. My original article can be found here.

Wow great vid and I could not agree with you more on what we (ES fans) want in this game. Good work dude and I look forward to more vids from you.

I'm also praying TESO will be TES and not any other MMO around. Hope makes a living.

great video. I agree with everything you had on there. One of the things that I would really like to see is a little more of making the player think before they act. Skyrim has added some of this already. I hate the type of game play where you see a group along the road and you just run in and kill them. Not every group of people is a group of thieves. Not every scary looking tower in the middle of the woods is full of monsters that need slaying. I would like to see more situations where the players have to think through what they are going to do and the results of their actions. But hey, if you want to just run in and kill everyone, go for it, more power to you, but there should also be situations where, for those players that go another route might be rewarded for not just hack-and-slashing their way through a game world.

I agree, I like this idea.

Chills ~~~~ you got to me with that Morrowind opening sound screen!

Very good video and inclusive points on what we'd like from TESO. I agree that the traditional and loyal TES fans should be aimed at in this mmorpg and I think the online gamers unacquainted with TES will follow and get onboard if the gaming experience is done as well as the single player games always have been.

Don't fear for TESO too much, one point I think was overlooked is that ZeniMax Online Studios and Bethesda Gaming Studio are both components of ZeniMax Media Inc. as was Bethesda Softworks. So I think we continue to be in good hands since Arena.

I would like to see more about fighting styles, any side skills like traps, mines (? - Argonians could make stink egg bombs, couldn't they?), climbing maybe, auxiliary assaults to frontal battle ones, etc. More news on mounts, housing, guilds and crafting would be super. Thank you for the video.


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 really like the video. Heading over to Youtube now to subscribe. I have to agree with CedarLilly though. Bethesda and ZeniMax have been working together so while I am not allowing my hopes to get too high, I really don't "fear for The Elder Scrolls Online."

And yes, on occasion I find myself in third person "salivating" over my awesome character.

I agree with you 100% OP. I loved the video and it sent chills down my spine when you introduced the morrowind opening music. So many good years with this series. ESO has already gotten me hooked.
