The lack of any regular (or even occasional) official videos, game-play, or other information is obviously really frustrating.
The question I'm asking is... Why? WHY ZENIMAX?
Following the ESO announcement ages ago the hype machine was really going strong. It's been slowly running on fumes ever since, and I can't believe that a company is willfully doing this while also being so against any sort of leaked content - even when said content is received well - that seconds of footage uploaded to YouTube is taken down in... Well, seconds.
It's slightly worrying to me that they've taken this beta video ordeal so seriously. I understand the whole concept of people viewing an unfinished product possibly hurting sales... But this complete lock-down on everything isn't? People might not even care about ESO by mid-2014. The only thing Zenimax releases to hold people over are those 20 second NPC-creature videos every 2+ months or so, and they're terrible.
It just seems like the developer is really insecure about the product they have on the table at this point, and that slightly concerns me.
