Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

Gameplay footage is a good thing!

Ah, an Elder Scrolls Online video with actual gameplay footage. It's kind of the holy grail in these days of high production CGI trailers. VG24/7 talked to Nick Konkle, lead gameplay designer for ESO, at E3. (Although this video was just published yesterday.) Nick talks a good bit about the ESO port to consoles and gives a few details about the control scheme while we watch some cool battles, both in 3rd and 1st person.

YouTube trolls tend to be omega trolls, but quite a few of them are bagging on graphics and combat (presumably combat animations). Keeping in mind that this is a video, and the quality can't really be compared to what you'll see on your own PC or TV screen in the spring of 2014 when ESO releases, what's your take?
