    You can have negative opinions all you want. I dont care whether you like the game or not.

    The fact that people cant look past the name or the fact that its not Skyrim or blatantly have no idea what theyre even talking about is whats not needed.

    The fact that this game even started as B2P+P2P is because of the name.

    Also, by your logic it seems that anyone who has a 'negative opinion' about the game 'doesn't know what he's talking about'? ...Ok then.

    Amazing you could read my mind. Asian grinder, No I wouldn't want that.

    Do you want to play a game where every monster matters? Yes!

    For you for some off reason that means Asian grinder... I swear you rookies.

    the combat is roughly equal to skyrim (a.k.a really bad lol, artificial hit confirm that got added right before release), the questing is ok? but it's so unbelievably slow to level via questing it gets really boring because most of the quests are very similar in design.
    dungeons are worthless, you get 1 skill point and about 3% xp, the loot is negligible because you can just craft whatever you require.
    i liked the fact that everything is crafted, but in the end it doesn't matter because you will just farm public dungeons over and over to get materials to break apart so it's not like it's a struggle crafting stronger gear.

    Not really sure where you are picking this up. I said no such thing. Maybe you should work on your reading comprehension.

    Let me give you an example of what Im trying to say here.

    Valid negative criticism: "Mobs dont give worthwhile exp and questing gets repetitive" or "Rewards from dungeons arent enough to make them worthwhile"

    Not valid/uninformed criticism: "Its not Skyrim so its crap, keep wasting your money" or "generic fantasy mmo lol"

    ... ESO seems to be shaping into a very good MMORPG, if nothing else. And let me be clear, the game is FULL of content. I've put 40+ hours into the game on just one character and I've only just reached level fifteen....you can definitely take your time and have something to do constantly...

    True to its name, the questing in this game puts the questing in almost every other MMO to shame. Almost every quest you do will be part of some story-line you can't help but be immersed in. The voice acting, the writing, the choices – they all add up to the signature Elder Scrolls story-telling experience that we've all come to love. And ESO has it all.the choices I make do have an effect on how the story-arc ends. You might choose to give a greedy Lady a cursed crown in order to trap her spirit and teach her a lesson, only to find out that she has her innocent servant touch it before she does and instead traps his soul. Or you could just give her the true crown and keep the current trapped soul in his prison so that no innocents would be sacrificed to free him. Almost every other quest you do will have you make some choice or another that will affect the outcome.

    Another great thing about the questing is it actually impacts the world around you. Well, to be clear, it impacts your own personal vision of the world. Due to the phasing technology that ESO employs, the world you are seeing can be quite different than that of your friends. Sometimes this is as simple as making a previously hostile zone free of enemies (or vice versa), or it might make the Wyr Sisters show up to help a struggling town with their wounded, after you've saved their Wyrd tree.
    This actually kinda makes me want to buy

    The game's quests make you make CHOICES and they actually impact the outcome of the quest. I'm not sure if you get different rewards though. I remember one where I either had to choose the save this guy's dad or make his son go get him alone(Which would probably result in him dying, plus the town would burn down) or save the town from being burned down by the bandits and run them out. It's a good game and has a lot of depth. These people with their "opinions" really aren't giving it much of a fair chance and are rushing through. If you play strictly to get to max level you WILL get bored, but if you take the time to explore and appreciate the lore, it's really fun.
