With ESO now available for console, it has the world wondering...

Is buying the game worth it?

For some, $60 is a small price to pay for an online Elder Scrolls experience.  Others, however, have realistic budgeting tactics that new releases don't typically fall into.  Well, I'm here to help you rationalize this decision: Should I drain all of my money into this game, or should I wait it out/not get it at all?

Question #1: Do you even have a proper console?

MANY people had just barely purchased the PS3 when the PS4 was so quickly released. Chances are, even if you CAN afford a $60 game, a system costing HUNDREDS of dollars is not even close to in your budget. This is okay.  I have many friends considering buying the PS4 console specifically for the new ESO release. My advice to these people? Don't waste the money.  This is the exact predicament I am in myself, and the advice given to me by many different people is to not even stress it.  The game is good, but it's not so good that I need to buy an entirely new console for it.

If you answered YES to Question#1, continue on.  If you answered NO, then the answer is no, don't buy the game.

Question #2: Are you familiar with MMOs?

If so, take what you know about MMOs and throw it out the window.  With extensive studying and research, I have found that ESO is a very solo-based game with occasiona group play. HOWEVER, there is a separate PvP section where combat with friends is endless.   In some ways, the game is said to be similar to your popular MMOs like WoW.  In many other ways, however, the game takes its own stance on things.  This is in no way a bad thing, but if it is a deciding factor for you then feel free to use this information as a persuasive tool for either side of the spectrum.

If the information above makes the game appealing to you, then YEAH BUY THE GAME.  If the information makes you weary, AT LEAST WAIT UNTIL THE GAME GETS CHEAPER.


Maybe this information was helpful to you, maybe it wasn't.  Either way it is my insight, so take it as you will.
