Is ESO worth it?

Mon Nov 13, 2017 4:55 am

Hey guys, I was wondering if ESO was worth it.

I love both Skyrim and Oblivion. But my brother, who also loves them both, says it's not great.
But now I have some disposable income, and was wondering if I should give it a shot.

  • First I should ask a few questions before responding.
    Do you have people to play with?
    Do you enjoy grinding for hours with little to no reward?
    Do you like it when the enemies level with you? (For instance, if you're a level 25, a fucking mudcrab will also be level 25 and wreck your world if you're not careful.)


    IF you responded NO to any of these, then this game is probably not for you.

    I used to play it so much, but lots of drama happened which resulted in my party breaking up. No friends to play meant harder to get through the dungeons.
    This game, while it is POSSIBLE to play solo, is dreadfully dull and unexciting without a group of people to communicate with.

    The loot drops SUCK, just saying. And my god, don't get me started on trying to craft shit because you have to unlock different craft books to even be able to craft a certain weapon. OH, and you have to find all your materials. Good luck with that, especially if you're trying to craft a heavy hitter.

    I'm so salty that a fucking mudcrab killed me okay. It used to be that things did not level with you, but I guess people exploited it too much, and now everything jumps to your level when you fight it. It's so goddamn annoying to have a pebble-sized mudcrab hit you once and damn hear take away half your health. This is where having a group to play with comes in handy. Team hit, and you'll have no problems unless of course you're trying to tank and you don't have a tank build. Then you're screwed no matter what.

Aww, that sucks.

Are they both that way? (Marrowind & Tamriel?)

      • i haven't played it much, but i had a lot of issues with the game glitching. i played the tutorial about halfway but had to stop and turn it off. i loaded it back up and the door that was supposed to be open didn't open and i ended up having to restart the tutorial, which required making a whole new character. so that was not cool. i also haven't really gotten into it and it doesn't keep my interest. i'll probably end up trading it in for money and get like $2. idk how qualifified my opinion is becuase i've never played skyrim or anything within the elder scrolls series.

  • Unfortunately, the whole world is in ESO. They released Morrowind as a DLC/chapter earlier this year and bundled it with ESO for the standard $59.99 w/o taxes. Tamriel was the very first edition of the game when it launched.
    So you have
    ESO: Tamriel Unlimited edition | Launched April 2014 for PC and June 2015 for console
    ESO: Morrowind(Which is just another chapter to the first ESO) | Launched January 2017

  • Sadly its unlikely 😞. All we can hope for is Elder Scrolls VI sometime in the next few years. Bethesda needs to get ontop of their game haha. But yeah, I work for a game store so if you have anymore questions about ESO or another game, feel free to ask! I answer honestly.

Let's hope for VI!

I have a 2011 macbook pro laptop so it's hard to find good games anyways...

And I only have an Xbox360, and since they're not making any games for it... *le sigh*

I'm (not very)patiently waiting for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon...
A 3DS is the only up to date piece of technology I have...

  • Yup! It's going to be freaking fantastic on the new gen consoles. Especially in 4K, if they ever make the dang game hahaha.

    I'm running a Windows 10 touch-screen laptop that would have an electrical aneurysm and burst into flames if I dared try to play anything on it. -pats poor laptop- As for the 360, yeah, sadly no new games unless you're into NBA xD. It makes a little sense though, seeing as the Xbox360 was launched BEFORE Facebook was invented hehe. It's deffo worth it to upgrade to an Xbox one, especially the new Xbox one x that now plays all games, movies and streaming(Netflix, HULU etc) in real time 4K. I can't wait for mine to come in, even if I cant experience the 4K amazingness until I get my taxes back and get a 4K tv. -sighsigh-

    Nhhhhhh I really want to pick up Ultra Sun and Moon, but I sold my 3ds the beginning of this year. I cant justify buying another just for one game :c. So I shall suffer with my Xbox one in a corner and wait for Monster Hunter *u*.
