This is pretty random, but seeing as to the classic status of ES and as their masterpiece will be with us shortly, is anyone anticipating spending more time playing that than EVE?

WTF is ES? ugh

Not much of a 'classic status' if fulltime MMO-players don't even know what the hell it is. And I'm confused how you know it'll be a 'masterpiece' if it isn't even out yet?

->troll, or
->promotion for random product
Can't decide which, tbh.

..oh right, Elder Scrolls, has to be. Quite confusing, over here they're known by their individual name, never referring to them as a series since uhm, they're not one? heh.

Can't really see how a RPG could compare to a MMO tho, not even the same game concept. Odd that you even compare different game types.

WoW is certainly a better game than Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Genesis

They compare in that they can both potentially chew up a lot of time.

Also ES 5 isn't out until November at the earliest.

At least use the right acronym for it. While TES: Skyrim will be time consuming, people will still keep their accounts subbed and get on when needed/need a break from it.

P.S. Now you've made me want to go get Morrowind and mod it like I did when it came out. D:

Short answer: No.

Long answer: TES is a singleplayer fantasy first person RPG. EVE is a scifi "third person" space semi-RTS game. Draw your own conclusions.

I expect it will...

It's bloody Elder Scrolls and after playing Oblivion which spawned me to play Morrowind which brought me to Daggerfall, I can't wait for Skyrim.

Must we have this exact thread with a new game name every month or two?

Morrowind was their masterpiece, been downhill since then.

Oh, and no.

Knowing Bethesda, Skyrim will need two patches before it's playable and a bunch of player mods to make it balanced. So no real effect on EVE until the middle of next year if it comes out at the 11th november.

You sometimes see a slight drop in corp/alliance activity whenever something big comes out like Starcraft 2 or Fallout New Vegas but its never anything drastic with people dropping subs or anything.
