Video of the Day: Will The Elder Scrolls Online Hook Non-MMO Gamers?

Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

We'll hook you single-player and console gamers yet

Today's video comes from VitalSyntax, who admits that he's not an MMO guy. He feels that MMOs are all about cool-downs and mashing hotkeys. To date, he hasn't played an MMO in which he found the story intriguing. But that doesn't mean he's necessarily written off MMOs all together. In fact, The Elder Scrolls Online, now coming to consoles as well as PC, has him intrigued.

Take a look at some in-game footage (which anyone closely following the game will have seen before), and listen to VitalSyntax's take.

I appreciate getting some insight into ESO from the point of view of a non-MMO gamer. What's your opinion? Is ESO in a unique position to capture the attention of gamers who otherwise have no interest in MMOs?

Going console they are obviously going to be playing to a larger audience. However, console and PC probably won't play together so that is unfortunate. I'm not going to hold my breath hoping this game is good. If there is something to be learned from the latest MMOs to hit the market its don't get sucked into the hype and give the game a month before you get into it.

I have lost a lot of faith in MMO devs as of late. I still play WoW on a daily basis because these other games just can't keep me interested long enough.
