Any upcoming MMORPGs look good?

Games, Gaming and Hardware
The leaked footage of Elder Scrolls Online looks absolutely horrible. It doesn't look like a WoW clone. It looks like an Age of Conan clone.

I am not sure why people are so hyped about a game being developed by the same people who brought you Warhammer Online and Star Wars: Old Republic.

I will give it to those Mythic guys, they sure know how to hype a game!


ESO is Zenimax online. Not Mythic.

As for the leaked footage, it was purposly made to look bad, and it was from an early alpha build that predated teh beta build in PAX.

I promise you, give me the greatest game in the world and I can make it look bad in a low quality gameplay video.

Check out the resumes of the guys working at Zenimax.

Lets look look at what Zenimax says about themselves:

Our President was one of the founders of Mythic Entertainment and was the producer of Dark Age of Camelot and lots of other titles there. Our team is made of many other people who worked at Mythic.
MMO's tend to attract developers from other MMO's. It's still not mythic.

Personally, I don't mind. DAoC was a legend in it's day, so like all games I'll give it a try before casting judgement.
Everyone agree's DAoC was a great game.


They do? I must have missed the memo.

I got conned into this goatrope back in its beta. It sucked then. But it was beta, so who knew?

Guild (EQ) decided it's going to give it a go. So off to DAoC. It still sucked, but got to level 30ish before I'd had enough and pulled the plug. PvP? Heh, never saw it until very late and then wished I never had.

Round 2 a year later:

Went to Gaheris with a few friends from the old EQ guild. Actually had fun for a few months (PvE don't you know...), but bailed when greener pastures opened up.

Hmmm...looks like a lot of disagreement there. Point invalidated!
honestly have to consider who is responsible for bad games.

Is it the developers who F'ed up somehow or is it the Publishers who force a checklist of "marketable components" on them in exchange for funding the game.

The recent wave of Kickstarted video games has me very curious to see what comes out when the Publishing companies are removed from the process.

Only if you took the point in it's literal sense.
