What got you into ESO?

Postby SirApplesauce » February 9th, 2017, 6:53 am

I thought I'd get some discussion going in the discussion board. For me ESO is actually the first mmo I've really gotten into. I've always loved the Elder Scrolls series and was excited when they first announced this. However I was scared away at first due to the rocky start but finally decided to buy it on sale. I'm happy I did, love this game and its people. So ITG, how did you discover ESO?

I have played ESO since the closed beta. After finishing up Skyrim for like the 5th time, I wanted more Elder Scrolls. Seeing as I was getting tired of playing World of Warcraft (played it for about 10 years) ESO was a match made in heaven.

I never played them when they were released I tried them much later and by then the graphics were very dated which made it hard to get immersed.

I got tired of buying so many games on Steam and never finishing them (or even playing many of them). Always wanted to play this game, but tend to shy away from MMOs as I have a tendency to become consumed by them.

One day my husband and I got into a fight about something stupid, and he knew he was wrong (ofc). He "went for a drive" like he always does when he's mad, and came home with a small stack of xbox games as an apology gift. Oblivion was one of the games, and I was hooked immediately. Been a fan of Elder Scrolls games ever since and when I heard there was going to be an MMO version I got so excited. Never played one before though, so to get some exp in MMO's I started playing WoW until ESO came out. Ended up getting hooked on WoW pretty bad. I did the beta testing for ESO, pre-ordered the Imperial edition, and played it for a couple months when it was released. I didn't like it at first, but stayed subbed just in case. Took me a couple years only peeking in every so often before I got into it lol. I got really tired of WoW and stopped playing that, and here I am! :D Now that I like it, I have almost no time to devote to it though. Go figure lol.

A friend at work gave me Oblivion and I loved playing that. Played Skyrim when it came out and that was my go to game for a long time. I wasn't interested in MMO's and wasn't excited about ESO. In November 2016 Steam had a free weekend to try ESO, so I thought what they hell and I really enjoyed more than I thought. I have been hooked ever since.

Was always a gamer, sometimes I played more often then I probably should have. Went from playing MMORPG's to just playing single player type games. I just missed the interaction of a good MMO, so I looked around for a decent MMO and ended up getting ESO. I'm a little late to the game, but I just want to have some fun again. Hope to see you around.
