Hey. Can I get a reccommendation on this game? What's the world like, is it worth it to buy for exploration/lore/story?

[up]I've been playing again for a few months after a long absence, and I'd recommend it. It's not Skyrim Online obviously, but it's a solid MMO. The world feels pretty alive IMO; lots of quests to do and things to explore. The game even rewards you for exploration. There is a main story which I found enjoyable enough, but most of the better storylines are in quests. A quest that sticks out to me is about an Altmer adventurer coming into a Draugr tomb and waking them up. This upsets the locals, who ask you to see whats what in the tomb. The Altmer is a fraud who takes credit for other people's discoveries to gain fame and makes you do all the work... But you're given the option of exposing him at the end, and you can even trap him in a sarcophagus.

Really my main problem with it from what I've played is that it runs into the MMO problem of "lots of enemies all over" that makes traveling a pain, so far. Otherwise it seems pretty solid.

Resurrection! A miracle!

Been playing this game, really enjoying having a better RPG experience than WoW or the Secret World ever provided me. Going nuts though with my alts and thinking up crazy shit like plate and greatsword sorcerers or something. Or dragon knight healers? Do they heal?

Never really played any of the main games in the series.

Is there a troper guild for anyone actively playing?

Summerset Isle. In the mumorpeger. Before the single-player game brand gets to see it.

Hm.

Oh well. As long as it works.

[up] I never saw the point of Arena because I'm a Morrowind baby, and Morrowind existed when I heard about Arena. At the time of Arena's release I was up to the roots of my rapidly receding hairline in JRP Gs, I think.

I couldn't play Daggerfall or Arena. I refuse to play a game with graphics that lousy. Because my screen's a 42" flatscreen LED and it would be physically painful to look at. 720p imaging looks horrible enough on a screen that size.

I use a fairly large monitor, but it's pointedly not a TV-style set-up nor 50 or so inches. So generally I'd play Daggerfall windowed.

And they've already announced yet another pack... maybe not quite the size of Summerset... but this one's in Blackmarsh.

Plus some funky new stuff around Hircine.

I'm torn. I mean, I pick up MM Os and drop them. But this LOOKS fun. And it's more ES AND you can FP combat it...

Guys tell me straight. Should I? I mean, it's cheap on steam now...

I like it, just started. It doesn't feel too much like an MMO.

Started playing it again yesterday, actually. I haven't tried the DLC, but I've done maybe the first 10 levels for the Daggerfall Covenant and the Aldmeri Dominion — so consider this a first impressions, I guess.

It is fun enough. Some of the quests have some good, interesting choices, even if the MMO design kind of undermines their impact in the long run. My favourite so far has been you're confronted with an evil captain, goes around shipwrecking and torturing people, etc. Only, your ally beat you to her, and has given her a poison that'll give her a slow, painful death. The antidote is on the table; cure her, leave her be, or kill her now to give her a quick death?

But ultimately the combat feels a bit plain and simple, and doesn't really 'feel' as good as it did in Skyrim. You do have a fair amount of room for customisation: almost any class could be, say, played as a mage, or turned into a two-handed warrior, etc. But MMO design, or at least how its used here, isn't that conductive to an immersive feeling world or an impactful feeling combat system. And of course, the nature of multiplayer games kind of encourages you to drop completely customising yourself and minmax a little, unless you're with mates who are all mucking about.

For 50% off? I'd consider it, yes. I enjoyed my time with the game, though first time around I did eventually fall into a bit of dull malaise after a while.

I have played Skyrim every month for more than two years, and still haven't tried ESO. I'd love to explore the world, but MM Os these days just don't sound compelling to me. Something about a lack of interaction.
