ok admittedly started playing ESO with my budy because he's way too generous and gifted it to me
can definitely see the appeal
gameplay is mostly grindy and somewhat boring– EXCEPT for the statfag aspect
storyline/lore is actually pretty interesting
social aspect of it is obviously the big appeal
being a big autist the enjoyment i get out of any kinda 'build your own skill tree' is trying to game the meta
hbu vee? playin any of this shit?
unfortunately made my race and class blind, and my chosen ones dont have complimentary base attributes. wood elf/templar. was thinking of doing a very lulzy/selfish ultimate centered build, that by my maths would be able to pop out an ultimate attack every 20-40 seconds, mostly through passives and spamming individual moves

I'd rather play a solid handcrafted 6-8 hour game than play 200 hours of MMO "content".

Never really played any MMOs, seems like it would only be fun if you have a lot of irl friends who are also into it

I would say dying, not dead. The current MMOs are not going anywhere for a long time, but from now on it's more about managing decline and keeping players around than growth.

My one friend who was a big wow nerd for a LOOOONG time took up ESO a year ago and he's on that shit hard. In some ways I'd say it's a zero sum game. A number of people will keep up with wow for new content but let other games, or other MMOs float in.
It's still strong in that sense. I feel like a lot of weeb have been drawn out of the various cheap kimchi and chink mmos and have gone to ffxiv in the last few years but that's just anecdotal on my part.
Ultimately, seems like it's a zero sum game. Not a lot of room for growth right now may just be generational unless there is something out there that can revolutionize the genre as it's kinda niche.

>Not a lot of room for growth right now may just be generational unless there is something out there that can revolutionize the genre as it's kinda niche.
The younger crowd are more interested in survival sandbox games like Valheim / Ark / Rust etc. that'll probably be the future of MMO games.

I guess with ESO specifically they're also drawing in an audience from people who usually aren't into MMOs, same with FFXIV. Then again they also tried that shit with FO76 and we all know what happened there

the way they did the buy gametime with in game gold was pretty smart
basically it lets irl whales pre-pay for gametime tokens, and if someone has excess gold they then exchange the gold for one of these tokens
so the savvy veteran players can drop their excess gold but blizz still gets their dosh

 No.1304

damn i'll say this so
ESO classes/races are definitely lopsided and unbalanced
and the entire gameplay loop is kinda busted
like ffs why even allow allocating attributes if it just boils down to dumping them all into your roles main attribute pool
if you diversify your attributes you just end up being bad at everything

 No.1305

>>1299
lel, people are retarded. wtf is the appeal of dumping irl money straight into the game??
like i could see maybe if you really appreciated the game and you wanted to support the studio, maybe give it an extra 20 bucks every year or half a year for stupid cosmetic shit or something
but the people shelling out paychecks to get loot they 'really want' from random lootbox?
i'll never understand

 No.1371

>>1370
Yeah you're right, but kids are easily influenced and I don't like that it cultivates an idea in their heads that this is a normal and acceptable way to spend money. There are all kinds of horror stories where a kid turns 18, is given some savings from their parents and they spend it all on lootboxes, streamer donations or whatever else. Of course it's still ultimately their fault for being a fucking retard but something about that kind of exploitation just doesn't sit right with me

It's not necessarily the vidya itself but the people around them playing it. As people pointed out ITT these games actually purposely match non-DLC players with guys who paid for pay2win shit. There's also the peer pressure aspect, from their friends at school as >>1374 said and from guys on the internet since, worryingly, gaming streamers on Youtube are among the biggest role models for children right now. Also kids are very easily influenced by advertising and there's only really so much that parents can do to prevent that unless you want to cut them off from TV, the internet, vidya and basically every other form of media

tbh i don't think there's anything wrong with it, in principle it's no worse than watching cable tv
but the problem is that twitch streamers have figured out that building fake relationships with viewers and pretending to be their friends is way more profitable and much easier than creating high-effort, well-produced content
i can it fucking up some little kid if he thinks pewdiepie or fortnite ninja is really his friend

i think theres a lot of kids who think like that actually

I think the fake friends thing is only really a problem with lonely guys who are already desperate in the first place, for example I doubt this simp in >>1373 has a healthy social life. And these kinds of people are prone to exploitation anyway, if they weren't wasting money on streamers it'd be other things like thots on Onlyfans, anime waifu dakimakuras etc. Plus unless these kids have retard parents who give them access to credit cards they're not gonna have the money to donate to them asking for personal callouts and shit
