As the day draws closer to the release of SWTOR my mind still cant help but think about Skyrim stuff. This got me thinking that Skyrim could be a huge factor in helping SWTOR, hear me out.
Skyrim is a huge success in the face of a gaming community that seems to be demanding online multiplayer for every possible game. It manages to make it despite have no multiplayer of any kind and relying solely on single player story. Yes, it has near endless paths to take to get through the story and actually endless side quests and missions and god know what else.
SWTOR is a MMO of a new kind, its story driven more so than any other MMO i have played yet. Its fresh, but still familiar. And i really think that thanks to Skyrims huge succes that it can only benefit from people realizing that a single player story can sell a game. Sure, SWTOR is multiplayer at heart, but the main storyline is yours to enjoy alone with your companions (just like Skyrim heh) if you so like. And much like Skyrim, once you finish the main story, you have endless opportunities to do as you please. Quests to finish up, places to see, things to craft and people to meet.
I personally am very excited to see how SWTOR works out, i wish them nothing but the best. So heres to a flawless launch and many years of successful expansions.
ps. Yeah, i used that title hoping to draw more people in.
