The lights are on
With such long development cycles, it's difficult to create an MMO that feels modern. As the game director of The Elder Scrolls Online, Matt Firor wants to ensure that the game is heeding lessons from past MMOs. Working extensively in this one genre, Firor thinks that he has pinpointed several key downfalls of the genre and is looking to avoid them for ESO. Check out the video below to hear him talk about the evolution of MMOs, how to make a player feel like a stand-alone hero in an online game, and how he plans on handling criticism of the game.

Is this the real life or just fantasy.....

I didn't really want this game to be made but now since I've read it in a GI mag it's starting to sound really good :D
I like the idea of having the main storyline be an instanced experience that focuses on the player's character. I agree with Firor that being on a really cool, epic quest and then seeing a whole line of other players waiting to complete the same quest really breaks the immersion of the game.
I also like his take on what "raiding" in ESO will encompass, mainly pitting large groups of players against large groups of monsters. In most MMO's these days the raiding format is usually: kill 2-5 trash mobs, walk a bit, fight boss, rinse/repeat. I'm excited to see how ESO will try to break that mold.
I am eager to see Skyrim online. After dropping so many hours in the games I am excited to see something new and challenging. Meeting other fans is cool. It has such an eclectic fan base.
It's pretty cool that his office has a view of Cyrodil ...I think I see Harcane Grove. Someone should photoshop/animate a minotaur in behind him.. just some stocky hooved legs passing by thru the window.
