I don't think Lord of the rings films did anything particularly good for the fantasy genre though...

You mean, aside from being the first fantasy films to ever present a fully-realised fantasy world without compromises for budget, time or mainstream audience tastes, to establish epic fantasy as a viable commercial and artistic genre in film, to show hardcore female characters without an ounce of fanservice, to expose millions of viewers to some amazing older actors in thoroughly kickass action roles, to up the game by several levels in special effects work and epic battle sequences, to win multiple Oscars and make billions of dollars, thereby paving the way for every fantasy work that has followed them, and to make it socially acceptable to enjoy geeky things in mainstream society? No, I can't think of anything, either!

@Deathwalka my problem is, I got the Dawnguard quest in my log near the start of the game, but i knew it was DLC so I wanted to hold off on doing it til after the main story was complete. There's a quest where you need to get a prisoner out of a Thalmor prison in Northwatch Tower, the castle is just north west of it, so tread lightly lol.

Anyways, this is the glitch used to get pass the gate, some say it was patched out, but it does work on switch. The only issue is, the gate still never opens. So you'll have to do this trick every time you want to enter or leave the castle, and it takes a few tries each time to get it right. But at least the game is now playable for me.

@hcfwesker that's awesome news you got a fix! I love how all the secrets and cheats still work on the switch, not codes but where u can get secret chests by using a plate against a wall.
Absolutely loving skyrim, I have only played handheld and I gotta say it's incredible how well they have ported it!
Right now where I live we have all been severely snowed in, where I don't have to even go to work tomorrow as the snow is so deep and heavy, it's times like this I'm loving my switch even more

@JasmineDragon well... You say "commercial and artistic genre film" but it was too much commercial and not artistic enough (not at all imho), you say "older actors in kickass actin roles" but those kickass action roles were completely out of place both for the character (I suppose you are talking about Gandalf and his laughable fight with Saruman) and the story and unnecessarily over the top. Everything in those movies were made with the modern day mainstream audience in mind and you can clearly notice it. Xena warrior princess was more immersive some times, and it was a show that relied a lot on comedy and fourth wall breaking. LOTR manages to be less immersive and less believable even if it never wanted to break the fourth wall. When they don't speak in the elves language they often sound like modern day guys. This is only the biggest of its problems. I am not even a fan of the books (I prefer The Hobbit and not even The Hobbit is my favourite book either) but even I felt like that the movies betrayed the original books and are almost degrading for the original books

@LuckyLand lmfao you mentioned Xenia warrior princess and lotr in the same breath! I'm dying

@Deathwalka well if LOTR movies are not even able to be at least as immersive as an intentionally over the top and cheesy tv show it's simply their own fault

I do not know about you guys but after I have returned from the Soul Cairn I feel like I have played completely different game. The experience was just like Castlevania.

Dawnguard is a great expansion and I liked it way more than the Dragonborn DLC. Soul Cairn was great, very different and you could really feel the atmosphere. I didn't enjoy Apocrypha nearly as much.

Also riding dragons gotta be the most lacking and underwhelming feature added to a game ever.

@Zuljaras tbf my whole experience on the switch has felt different, better, more immersive. I have not played that quest yet so looking forward to it.

I don't like Dawnguard because

(I tried to use SPOILER tags but it just doesn't work for me, I don't know why, I'll leave many spaces instead I hope it's ok - ok now it seems it works fine lol)

the most obvious thing to do would have been to kill Serana immediately and it is exactly the thing that the game prevent you to do without even giving you a valid reason. You can't kill Serana but even if you overpower her she just don't notice it and don't care about it. You are even forced to babysit her throughout the quest. I joined Dawnguard, I am already bothered enough that you (the developer) force me to not kill a vampire and join forces with her because if I join Dawnguard it is obvious that I want to kill vampires, if you really want to make me to join a vampire at least give me valid reasons to do so, explain it with good dialogues. Instead of good dialogues, Serana just speak like she ignores that you are devoted to kill vampires and you are forced to speak like you ignored that she is a vampire.
It's so stupid! Come on, even I knew she was a vampire immediately when I saw her and I didn't even noticed by myself that Sybylle Stentor had something suspicious!

I prefer Dragonborn, it is not great but it is at least ok for me. I like how Apocrypha looks, but I don't like the fact that it is just an empty place with nothing to do except kill some monsters here and there.

The Witcher 3 got beard hairstyles that stopped the game's beard growth.

Open mouth, insert beard.

But anyway, yeah, Dawnguard is one of my favorite RPG things that exists, and I loved how it tied into the lore of the base game. The Soul Cairn was fun, but the atmosphere of that main dungeon is untouchable to me. Or at the least has yet to be touched.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Dawnguard was great. I don't really understand why people thought Dragonborn was so much better. Solstheim is great, and there were tons of great moments and cool stuff scattered across it, especially for those who had played Morrowind back in the day, but I don't think it was much better than Dawnguard, if at all, depending on your tastes. They were pretty equal for me, but I think I ultimately preferred Dawnguard.

@KirbyTheVampire I have to create a new character just to play as young Vampire Hunter with those amazing crossbows that one woman teach you to make from the Quest.

Question for any veteran skyrim player that might know (I’m a day 1 2011 veteran too but never used magic before)
I just got every school of magic level 100 and I want to build the library add on in one of my haerthfire homes and fill it with every available spell tome. After doing all ritual quest is it possible to buy all spell tomes at the college of winterhold or are there spell tomes exclusive to specific merchants? If so wich merchants sell spell tomes that the college doesn’t sell? (Dlc spells like telekinesis and equilibrium are sold at the college)

There are some spell books that are not even available for purchase. You can find a very convenient one in a cave near Whiterun for example.
If you want to know where to find all the books you can search on the web in sites like UESP under the spell tomes category

First, sorry if this has been asked before but I don't have the will to read more than 600 post to find out...

Is it possible to have different games with different characters at the same time?

I started with a character and played a little and I tried to start a new game but while keeping my previous character but instead the game deleted that previous character... So, now that I have spent more than 35 hours with this character and I'm scared of trying again and losing it...

Maybe I did it wrong the first time... Can someone confirm?

@maruse Skyrim has a manual save system. I have no experience with the Switch version but, assuming it's the same as all the others, the only saves the game deletes on its own are autosaves or quicksaves. Start a new game and manually save in a new slot and you should see a new character name appear in the save file menu with all of that character's saves.
