What a crappy trailer, no gameplay, I was disappointed when I saw it.

It probably won't be much of a leap like Oblivion was from Morrowind, unless they completely redo the engine.

If they're aiming for a release on 11/11/11, I wouldn't be expecting any particularly "final" gameplay footage this early. Be reasonable.

This is awesome news. Made my year :)

Final? Just something, if it's going to be released in less than a year, I'm pretty sure they'd have something in-game workable, unless this is another Rush.

They're also using an entire new Engine, as their previous Engine actually cost them money in the long run and they made NO profit from Oblivion.

My main issue with Morrowind and Oblivion was the clunky interaction with NPCs and the almost insulting combat animations. But, at least they haven't gone insane like Fable and take the framerate ownage route.

Let's hope Skyrim is some middleground.

Pretty much every Game "Reveal" always shows a trailer with no gameplay. None of the games announced at VGA had any gameplay at all. Basically this was just to say "Yes, Elder Scrolls V will come".

Just wait a while, you will get your gameplay fix in due time.

About the Engine, here's a piece from an Interview,

Bethesda Game Director Todd Howard explained in a separate interview with IGN that his game would not use id Tech 5. The studio's new engine built for its upcoming title is more beneficial to creating huge, open-world games, such as Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, while id Tech 5 is better for more contained environments.

"We decided to really reboot our technology after Fallout 3, so we had been making plans for that and started doing some things. The id thing came along later, so it's a mix of that plus the kinds of games we do are a bit bigger and more dynamic.

"Id Tech 5 is the best thing in the world at doing a very static environment that looks pretty and you're going to run through. But for the kinds of things I like to do, I like the world to be more dynamic."
Oblivion was a great step from Morrowind, both technically and gameplay wise, even if i didn't like it that much. That too when they weren't even used to developing on the Xbox.

I have a good feeling about this. Another Game of the year.

That is the lowest standard of making someone's year I've seen in a while. Are you okay, Maj? D:

Having a sequel announced of one of the greatest games ever can do that to you. It did to me.

Greatest game series.

Oblivion was far from one of the greatest games ever.

I never said it was the greatest game ever. And i agree with you at that point, i didn't like Oblivion either. But Morrowind, on the other hand, still stands as my favorite Rpg EVER. And i'd kick the person who'd bash it.

With mods it merely became a good game, without it was a mediocre game.
Even with mods i never could get into Oblivion. But this is Bethesda we'r talking about. They listen to their fans.

From now on i'll stop defending TESV. I'll let the game defend itself.

Also, the devs have said Screenshots, gameplay trailers and such are incoming.

Proof

They have also said they are using a new, in-house built engine that will supposedly blow our minds.

Proof
Super Proof

Ahah, yeah, I play with Berserk mods too, I have the Skeleton Kniight's armor set, it makes you godly, you have so much HP, MP, infinite Stamina, and nearly 1 hit kills on everything. I also have Gat's sword and everything. They even have Griffith's armor, too.

Gat's armor kinda sucks, though, doesn't look to great; and it's stats are below most stuff in the game...which surprised me as usually fan-made stuff is OP, like the Skeleton Armor set.

Technically, you're right. But neither did I.

Just arguing because I'm bored. And hungry.

Dang, sorry Origin, i thought i said sequel to one of the greatest series. Although, it would still have counted as a sequel to Morrowind, proving my earlier statement.

I played Oblivion slightly but not much. It was fun to play. Though it did give me a bit of a problem with the bugs and all.
