Me personally would love to see an ES:online and believe it would bring something new to the mmorpg table. Your more than likely to see an fallout mmo b4 an elder scrolls mmo

Don't we have enough carbon copy MMORPG's as it is?

I love the Elder Scrolls series. And that's why I would hate to see it as a multiplayer game. Even offline multiplayer or co-op would feel really tacked on. Hell, I hated it in Fable 2/3.

no thank you. I'll stick with single-player. But an online arena where you could fight against other people wouldn't be so bad. but no mmo plz, we have enough of those.

What are the main draws of MMOs? Lots of people and a huge world to accommodate them.

TES has had the huge world part down since the first game. So what's special about dumping a bunch of other people in it?

It's showing off your pimping gear? Kicking the arse of loud-mouth braggers and watching them kneel beneath your might?

How about joining up with friends in a guild and kicking the crap out of any and everyone?

MMOs are cool for the same reason people like competitive FPS games and cooperative TPS games. It's like combining a little bit of each genre to make up for something exciting (when done right).

That's what I get for saying "special" instead of "unique".

You can get that kind of thing with any MMO out there.

Point is, today's MMOs need to bring something more to the table than all those tired tricks. The "uniquness" of a setting is not enough. Better and far more famous franchises than TES have tried and failed hard.

Actually, other than Mortal Online (which is crap) I can't think of another MMO game out there even remotely similar to The Elder Scrolls. Most MMORPGS are grind-heavy, anime-style games with linear character classes and stories.

If they kept everything the same from Skyrim (except for a few restrictions here and there) and just opened up the world for multiple players, it would be pretty tight as an MMO.
