    An Elder Scrolls MMORPG would make me be sick into my hat. Bethesda were the only remaining games company catering to bitter misanthropes such as myself.

    EDIT: I don't even own a fucking hat.

    Those sounds suspiciously like Game of Thrones (or A Song of Fire & Ice) family banners.


    anyways, i haven't delved too deep into Elder Scrolls lore, but I figured that it's most likely Imperials are one of the three factions. Tamriel is too damn huge to even take a stab at the other factions.

    It'd be interesting though if they made Daedra a dominant, playable faction.

    Games like Skyrim would really benefit from multiplayer. They get incredibly boring very quickly. Adding higher depth to combat character building and a better variety of gear, and allowing you go go toe to toe against someone would be pretty cool.

    Assuming they keep the combat the same. They can keep their shitty MMO if it doesn't actually play like an Elder Scrolls game.

    Agreed. But they'll have to figure out how to balance things first. Otherwise, Fortify Attack 1000 will kinda ruin things. But then again, i'm thinking Morrowind, which was kinda broken.

    Been saying to my clatmates that Skyrim needs multiplayer for more post game fun.
    If it uses the same engine as TOR its not gonna be Elder Scrolls though. Its going to have the same WoW play style that is very boring to me.

    I dunno, Elder Scrolls was a good game, but then it took an arrow to the knee.

    Thought I might as well get that joke out of the way.

    This would be the first MMO I'd play then :) TES is so much fun, unbelievable games, unbelievable replayability IMHO.

    Gimme Fallout MMO and I'd be happy! Elder Scrolls isn't bad, but personally haven't had time to fight through them :3

    So, the Lannisters, Targaryens or Arryns? Lame!

    But on topic, an Elder Scrolls MMO would be awesome. Heck, even just co-op in the next ES would be pretty damn amazing!

    Why?

    There would be more people on here complaining about being FUS RO DAH'd by a 100% invisible player than there would be people complaining there aren't enough players to FUS RO DAH while hiding under 100% invisibility.

    I'm sure the MMO would be fine and all, but can you just make another single player focused game instead? Aren't there enough MMOs on the market anyway?

    Well, the big problem with conceptualizing games about MMOs is that the concept is awesome, but the execution is not.

    Elder Scrolls MMO - in concept:

    A vast, open world full of quests to do, monsters to kill, and skills to train. But now, instead of the dull NPCs and lifeless terrain, there's now a large, interactive userbase to play with. You can go on quests, pursue trade, or even raid one of their bandit camps for loot. Fight Dragons and creatures from Oblivion with teamwork, master different classes with friends for a multifaceted approach. The world is your oyster!

    Elder Scrolls MMO - in practice:

    You're doing a quest but some guy whose incredibly overleveled just kills you half way through for your loot. Every. Fucking. Time.
