The beta period of The Elder Scrolls Online is coming to an end. I played as a fan of The Elder Scrolls series but also as someone who is often skeptical of MMO design and execution and, while I saw a solid and often enjoyable game, this isn’t what I want out of the series. I’m likely not alone in that regard.
Skyrim has sold over 20 million copies. It can be tricky to wrap your head around numbers that large. That’s not a hit, Halo 4 selling 9 million units is a hit. Selling 20 million copies of a game, especially before you figure in the sales of DLC, is a surreal accomplishment. It’s one of the best-selling games of all time, and the total number of units sold is likely already higher than reported.
