GTA Online and The Elder Scrolls Online: Why we should only open our wallets for the best.

GamR Mag comments on the argument that has been raging over past weeks? When is it right to open your wallet for extra content?

"There has been rampant debate recently over the inclusion of micro-transactions in Grand Theft Auto Online as well as the payment plan to be included with the launch of Bethesda’s up and coming MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online. Should we be up in arms? Should we call for boycotts? Should we just ignore it and hope it goes away, or should we accept that for such vast projects and amazing end products, perhaps we can splash out a little extra?" (Bethesda Game Studios, Culture, Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar North, The Elder Scrolls Online)

Elder Scrolls Online is not somethnig I would open my wallet for. I've seen the gameplay and its no where near great MMO's like WoW & Guild Wars 2.

Now comparing it to GTA Online which is actually fun i don't think Elder Scrolls Online would come anywhere near that.

Don't get me wrong Bethesda made a great RPG. But Zenimax who are developing ESO are not on that level.

zenimax is bethesda's parent company so i'm sure they have the elder scrolls devs in on making it. i was curious how that fallout mmo would've been like

i would include Final Fantasy XIV as worthy of opening your wallets, elder scrolls could be the same thing for fans of that series.
