What Makes The Elder Scrolls Online A Modern MMO

To be fair most MMOs made in the last 10 years or at least after WoW's success have been a joke. Sure there have been the odd good feature but to be honest the genre has gone from being one of the most potentially creative genres around into a generic theme park. SWTOR being a prime example.

Yeah guild wars 2 is getting really hyped up, haven't played it yet but I'm looking forward to see how it turns out. Planetside 2 is another potentially awesome game which could set a new standard for fps games if done right. The first was mind blowing but it wasn't easy to get into and lacked accessibility.

I thought swtor was fun, just didn't keep me addicted for more than a few months like some other mmos have.
