They said they weren't going to do it. People objected. They changed their mind. And now, behold: The Elder Scrolls Online has a first-person-with-hands mode. Ahhh. This game now looks like a Skryrim MMO.
Add +100 to me giving a damn.
I explain what the deal is in the video, which you really should watch to see how this all looks. But in case you can't listen, here's what happened: ZeniMax Online Studios starts making an Elder Scrolls MMO and presents it last year as a third-person game. Typical MMO stuff, but not typical Elder Scrolls, since the beloved single-player RPG series has long enabled gamers to play in first-person. The ESO developers say they want you to have situational awareness. They emphasize that the game is multiplayer, that you'll be surrounded by enemies. The game does first-person, but without hands. You don't have your bearings. You can't fight well from it. It's no good.
