    I got two words into it and had to stop it. The lyrics seemed good, but I could not stand it being a "rap" song.
    What happened to the song tunes that actually went with video games that are more....how should I say... Relative?

    i like it, though i guess the opening music from ESO isn't as epic as say skyrims opening so it doesn't quite feel as awesome as them. but i hope the other factions are good too

    well this is a guy who just makes raps about games he likes( i presume he likes them) it's not like bethesda or zenimax hired him to make an official song(as far as i know)

    I liked it lyrically & enjoyed the musical background, just not together. Sadly, proof that combining 2 good things don't always 1 GREAT thing. Upside, I could easily see this being stripped & remixed with a heavier base track...

    I love ESO but darn that video was annoying to listen to! Music was not fitting what the guy was saying with the tone he was using. Because come on that was not singing just someone talking tough. Saddens to see so many negative comments about the game in the Youtube comments. Why people hate this game so much? I'm having fun!

    Something about an English (queens) man rapping that sounds, phoney or it just misses the mark, somehow. You need a NY accent or Brooklyn to even sound ligit. Rap seems ghetto and rapping about or in a medieval game genre is even more off kilter. Ya needed to make it a spoof of a rap song if done in medieval times.Make it funny,comical,enjoyable.As is it is teribad...

    Yes, head injuries makes for English accented people sing via rap.

    "Rap" is not music, it's crap poorly wrapped around rhyme and without reason.

    I'm back for the B2P! Finally getting to pay what the game is worth!
    It's a very grey area.

    Bad, just bad, good rap is poor at its best with an uneducated fanbase who want to be 'Gangsta' thinking it is clever when, well it just isn't, ever. This however is simply and plainly bad.

    I enjoyed it, even though I'm not a fan of rap. I liked the refrain of "Let the Dagger Fall!" They lyrics were interesting and it was impressive that he could sing that fast. Kudos to the creator!

    Yep, its official. Anyone talking over a beat can be considered a rapper these days, don't even have to flow with the beat anymore. Garbage.

    I belive you can do better. Love your skyrim Rap.
    Try to not have half nude players in the video and try to get deeper into the lore and feeling of the faction.
    This song seemed abit imature compared to your other.
    Sorry, but i personally did not like it.
  • bluebloodb16_ESO
    Totally crap ! Elder Scrolls need epic songs or sturdy metal, not crappy (c)rap !

    Awesome! Oh man, I hope there are more of these for AD and EP!

    And geez guys, I thought you were all just crying all the time because ZoS won't give you god mode for your char so you can keep up with the rest of us or walk with you to resource nodes and protect you from the big bad bots. I didn't know you attacked fans as well. This one is starting to think you're simply a plague sent by Molag Bal!

    I like that he wanted to do something like this, just hate that he chose rap. Rap music in no way fits here.
