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
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
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.
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.
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)
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).
oblivion was an ok game when released....... Thats when I stopped reading.
Same here. Idiots.
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.
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.
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.
Maybe co-op, but an mmo? nty
Depends on how it's done. If it's identical to Oblivion and Morrowind and the only difference is that it's MASSIVE with other characters you get to play with then yes. If they change the combat system, make it like WOW, The Old Republic, etc. then no. Also so that there's no confusion if they charge a monthly fee then forget everything I said above. The answer is hell no I don't want an MMO.
Free to play MMOs are garbage though typically. There is no reason to play if you can buy all the best gear and stuff.
First of all oblivion was a GREAT game, not okay, not alright, it was and is a masterpiece. You know why you kept get caught whilst braking the law, your an idiot and didnt have sneek on, which would indicate if anyone was able to see you,ie, if the reticule is transparent steal away no consisquenc. If the reticule is a bold gold youll be seen and reported. Pretty simple concept, but seeing how that went over your head, i am not surprised that you think an edler scrolls mmo is bad idea. Of course you would, as proven earlier in my post your an idiot, who is short sighted, to believe nothing can take down WOW is a falisy, even blizzard knows WOW is wearing out its welcome, hence the reason they are making anotgher mmo. I for one would love less childish more mature fantasy mmo in the mix and i think that the elder scrolls universe could accomplish that.To further prove your dumb assness you assume they would have they same technicle issue as they did with fallout and oblivion engines, except clearly they would have to develop a whole new engine in order to accomodate the tech and sheer scale involved in a mmo, most likely adressing some of the technicle flaws to which the aforemention engines seem prone. In short shut ya mouth kid unless you have at least half way thought through what your saying. boooyaaa
too right, oblivion is a legendary game for me.
I absolutely LOVE Oblivion! I'm sad that I never played the first three Elder Scrolls games. :( I loved Fallout 3 also. (Forgive me, everyone.) I would love to have other people join me in the Elder Scrolls world, but I don't want an MMO.
play morrowind, you will then think of oblivion as the b*****d child of the elder scrolls series
but 4 player co op would be great!!!
MMOs are getting stale. I agree with the 4 player co-op, but nothing more than that.
World of Bugcraft
I'll say it again. If you're too damn ridled with ADD to play games like Fallout and Oblivion, STFU and go play CoD.
Fallout 3 and oblivion are for people with ADD, morrowind and FO 1+2 are for proper gamers, no fast travel or quest markers to hold your hand through the entire game in oblvion you could look for a "hidden artifact" and it wouldnt matter as a red arrow would point you to its exact location.
Sorry, I don't consider it rewarding in morrowind to have to walk on foot for 20 minutes just to get from point A to point B. I don't have enough time in my schedule to justify walking around aimlessly in a simulated world for hours at a time just to get quests done. Regardless, the quick travel feature was optional in Oblivion. You like wasting your life walking around even after you explored the various locations? go for it, no one is stopping you.
and the idea of elder scrolls going mmo is sooo retarded maybe a co op mode just like demons souls that would be awesome but pay to play stuff no sir not in a million years
Theres a reason it took you so long to level up. But yea I agree, hell no MMO. The idea of having to subscribe to elder scrolls sucks.
Unfortunately you cant stop the MMO train. Every Publisher wants a MMO and they want it like two days ago. With WOW's 12 million $15 a month paying scribes all publishers see is dollar signs and can care less about what gamers really want. So an Elder Scroll Oblivion MMO, would not surprise me.
"No Thank u" to an Oblivion MMO? have u guys even played Oblivion?... that game spells MMO bro! M a big fan of WoW...(Achileez) (LvL 54 Warrior). Anyway..gotta question 4 u all..how man MMO's do we have on consoles? A game like Oblivion would b perfect. U guys r morons to not want a game like Oblivion to b an MMO..personally, I welcome it..n I hope it happens...especially if there's no fee... Get real guys..ya act like ya not ready for next gen gaming..which is "Massive Multiplayer Gaming!" Game on!
you should be able to get an xbox live party going, then play online only with the people in your party, they dont have to make it like WoW where everybody in the world is at the same place.
