The Elder Scrolls 5 MMO? No, Thank You!

The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion was an okay game when it was released, but do you honestly want to see The Elder Scrolls 5 as the MMO version of Oblivion?

And make a proper sequel to the masterpiece they apprently forgot about

OSU_Gamer2774d ago

I think you summed it up pretty well. +1

That earned them the hearts and money of millions!

I don't know if we'll ever see a proper sequel to Elder Scrolls 4 anytime soon

tacosRcool2774d ago (Edited 2774d ago )

Also no Elder Scrolls MMO!

Yeah I'm starting to worry that they're a buncha one trick ponies... I really hope they do something really special with the next Elder Scrolls. Making it an MMO would be a dick-move.

It'd be funny if they're already in the midst of development for an ES MMO and they're reading all these comments. I don't think ANYONE wants it to be an MMO.

Obsidian made New Vegas so Bethesda has only made one Fallout. What game do you think they have been developing since Fallout 3 released? I'll give you a hint. It begins with an "E" and ends with a "V"! Maybe an Elder Scrolls mmo was/is in production but I honestly doubt that there won't be another traditional Elder Scrolls game. I think Elder Scrolls V is a single player game due out next year. Its Bethesda's baby franchise. They're not just going to abandon it.

Have to respectfully disagree with that one. Just because you didn't like Fallout doesn't mean it was a "Oblivion with guns" The quests, general gameplay, and especially VATS which added an RPG element to the game made Fallout 3 a great stand alone game.

If they focus on building a great singleplayer experience like the other Elder scrolls games have and then adding a multiplayer component in to that, I think it will succeed.

If they do it the other way around I'm confident that it will fail.

in the game where you can team up with others in certain dungeons or quests...to me Oblivion was amazing but it felt lonely at times. Cant wait to hear the lonely jokes.

I agree. I dont want moar MMOs, i just want to swing my sword in Tamriel again. Reminds me of the old slaughtering persians time.

zeddy2774d ago

oblivion offered so much more content than fallout 3, its why that was so disappointing. people who never played oblivion and jumped straight into fallout 3 probably liked the game but once you compare the two oblivion is worlds apart, there just so much more to do in the game i put 100+ in it.

It was an amazing experience, and I would definitely not want an Elder Scrolls MMO.

There's absolutely no reason to sleep to gain levels.

There's no reason to go beyond level 5.....in fact, it's detrimental.

Bethesda really should have thought that out better.

darthawesome902774d ago

Don't forget the leveled loot. It's sad when I go into 20 awesome ruins and end up with a apple and a worthless ring. I wish the enemies didn't level with me and the loot wasn't random. That way I would feel like there was a purpose to keep playing like in Morrowind.

In Morrowind there was always a tougher enemy and some that you didn't dare f#@k with until the end of the game, no matter how shiny and pretty their sword and armor was(because of the fact that there wasn't any leveled loot I felt like I accomplished something)

Jacobite2774d ago (Edited 2774d ago )

I just want to see a updated remake of Oblivion, but then again I would have liked to have played some quests in co-op with a friend(s).

Mcardle2774d ago

oblivion was an ok game when released....... Thats when I stopped reading.

Panthers2774d ago

I agreed with that completely. It was just OK. Any RPG that does not have strong story = just OK. And no Bethesda game Ive played has had a great story to go with it.

Cenobia2774d ago

That is actually a pretty good point. Oblivion and Fallout both had lame stories (even though the set ups were pretty decent). The delivery especially felt 'meh'.

*SPOILERS for FALLOUT 3*
************************

When you reunite with your father in Fallout 3 I was expecting a much bigger moment. And when he dies (like 10 minutes later) I really didn't care. They need to pace the story better and spend more time crafting the narrative.

PrimordialSoupBase2774d ago

Compare Oblivion to Planescape: Torment, Fallout 1 and 2, Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate, Gothic II, and you will lol at how pathetic it really is in comparison. Go back and learn what a real rpg is, because Bethesda does not make them.

ramza042774d ago

Maybe co-op, but an mmo? nty
