I can't disagree. I would only play it if my Fiance were to play with me. But that is true with or without the sub I suppose. I definitely see the sub
being a pain .. but then again, what else will give you the same amount of enjoyment per month for $15?
ETA: Let's say you buy 10 games a year. That's $600. Let's say because of ESO you only buy 5. That's $300 plus the $180 sub fee for a total of
So while a lot of that goes to ESO, your total expenditure is down. That won't be true for everyone, but very few games can be played for the total
hours an MMO can. Thus they cost more, but in the end they cost less than if your time went into other games.

I would love to have a bunch of friends all jump in at once. We all start playing at generally the same time, and now we have our own crew out there
wrecking shop. All of us progressing in a game together. That's an awesome experience, especially if it's friends/family that you actually know
(outside of the internet).
As for the amount of games I buy per year, it's generally around 5, but that was for PS3. Im probably going to follow the same route on my PS4. I do
have a PC but I only use that for the "Total War" games, and genre like that, I don't include those expenses in regards to this.
That being said, there's only a few games coming out in 2014 for PS4 that I know I will buy, or atleast currently plan on purchasing. Watch Dogs,
Thief, the new Metal Gear, and that new zombie game, "Dying Light?". (And those really depend on the reviews I hear about them. Im assuming 1 or 2 of
those have a possibility of being a fail). If ESO wants me to pay $15 a month, then I really hope they make giant leaps and bounds within the next few
months before release for me to justify the fee. The games I listed are pretty much single player, and those I assume will take up a limited amount of
time. With ESO being an unlimited amount of time for gameplay, I have to be really really impressed to pay that fee, since other games will take up
"x" amount of gameplay time.
ETA - Basically, I have for example 100 hours (just a simple random number, not the actual amount of time played per year) per year of time to play
video games. I'll spend $240 on the single player games (assuming just 1 from above gets really horrible reviews and I don't buy it), then another
$240 for ESO, (over the counter for disk + sub fee). I want ESO to keep my interest and take up atleast half of my time spent playing video games that
year, with the amount of money being spent.
