My only complaint was in Dawnguard. You were kinda “forced“ into the questline starting at level 10. You didn't HAVE to do it per se, but cities/ villages would occasionally be attacked by vampires at night. This could lead to NPCs dying (annoying if they had roles in quests). Of course, mods can fix that... on other versions, at least. Still, I would've prefered if the normal method for starting it was via “opting in“.

Hearthfire was fun, but you'll send your Skyrim into an iron shortage trying to get enough nails.

Dragonborn was excellent.

Can I say it still feels odd to be talking skyrim on a nintendo console.... It usually goes into a hypothetical situation followed by pessimism and lamenting how Bethesda doesn't care about nintendo....

@MegaMari0 Well Bethesda the studio seems to care about every console platform insofar as putting Skyrim / Fallout and angling for mods on it. However, those are dead on arrival on a Nintendo system.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

I think they get marked as an "essential" character if they have a role in a quest. But yeah, it was still annoying. I'd always roll back a save and go somewhere else for a while if someone died.

Hearthfire was pretty grindy, yeah. Worst part about that DLC IMO. Dragonborn was really cool all around. No complaints on that one, although I found it kind of frustratingly difficult at times, but maybe I'm just a noob lol.

Dawnguard is one of my favorite game stories. It stars an interesting female character who subverts her trope-expected role and is also voiced by Laura Bailey. <3

She is best girl.

I don't know if it's my favorite game story ever, but it's definitely one of my favorite questlines in Skyrim. The whole edgy vampire thing literally fuels me, as you can probably tell by my username, haha. (Don't worry, I'm not a vampire fanatic, I just like when vampires have a significant presence in games, since it doesn't happen very often)

300...hours? ._.

I'm starting to think that when I do play this, it should be in the wintertime.

Lol I've easily surpassed 300 hours. I've probably played 400-450. There is so much to do in this game. If you want an extremely long and consistently fun game, look no further.

@KirbyTheVampire It's not even edgy save for the Arvak, it's worked into the Elder Scrolls lore quite well. And it turns into an anime near the end, which I LOVE!

@Tyranexx Dude, I've played Skyrim for probably over 1000 hours on different characters. I've seen every dungeon and quest in the game, but I still haven't seen every house or mastered every skill. It's an experience.

I've played through most of Morrowind and a good chunk of Oblivion so I know what I'm getting into. The problem is I know once I start it's for the long haul and I've had this game for over a year now on the 360 and played all of 10 minutes. Ill wait and see if Bethesda makes it worth my while to pick this up on Nintendo.

I've logged... somewhere between 400-500 hours between 360 and PC combined. It's a game that keeps on giving. Even after you've turned over every stone in one playthrough, there's a lot of skills you can try out, which can change up your playstyle.

I once went pure Mage; only put perks into Mage-aligned skill trees. It really changed up how I approached things (especially combat).

And that's WITHOUT modding. WITH modding (well, on PC, mostly), it gets insane.

Skyrim sounds much more convenient on Switch if you've never played it. Granted, it could suck up your life, IDK. But it's just a jolly feeling to play through a long RPG on the couch after you've started in a more formal setting.

I might end up getting this. I already have Skyrim, but playing on the tablet would be nice. Hopefully it comes with all the DLC.

This is such fantastic news.

Skyrim is more than a game, it serves as a symbol of what the Switch can offer. Even just one game, if it's the right game, can do wonders for a system, and I can't think of a single third-party game that would have been a better choice.

Nintendo fans, I hope you buy this game. If you don't you will once and for all prove that there is no market for these types of games on the Nintendo platform. But I think there's hope. People see a game like Zelda and then they look at a game like this, and it doesn't seem so strange or foreign anymore. I believe a lot of peoples' eyes are going to be opened after they play Zelda though, and they're going to be turned on to the idea of a big open world RPG type game. And they'll suddenly start seeing the appeal of this game.

I will be doing my part and buying this game day one, even though I already have a saved file on the Xbox One.

I might buy it eventually when it's not full price and if it has a good number of mods. I've put so much time into the game already that I just couldn't justify doing it if the mods aren't good and it costs the same as or close to the same as a brand new game like BoTW.

But yeah, I think this and BoTW will expand the horizon for a lot of Nintendo-only gamers. They so easily shrug off games like Skyrim and Fallout, but they really don't realize how amazing the open-world genre can be. I personally had way more fun with open world games than I have with any other genre. If it sells well on the Switch, we could see games like Fallout 4 and future installments of The Elder Scrolls/Fallout games on Nintendo platforms, which would be a dream come true for me.

A system with Nintendo's games and hardware innovation plus all the major AAA games would be mindblowingly awesome, and it could very well happen within 1 or 2 generations if Nintendo stays in the console business. The hardware wars/graphics arms race can only last for so long. Eventually we'll hit that plateau.

I may change my mind about purchasing Skyrim for the Switch, if only for the novelty of splitting the controller in half and playing with my niece.

With all the moaning about smart phone users, there is plenty of evidence that people want the convience of the experience but also the quality which is only possible on console (or PC).

Not through design of the game, but if I have the left joycon, I control movement, the item I have in the left hand and whatever the dpad does (PC player), and if you have the right joycon, you control where the PC is looking, the right hand, jumping etc. So yes, in a sense, there is Co-op!

Co-op would be awesome in this game. Questing and exploring with another person/multiple people would be so much fun. Unfortunately, that will never happen in an Elder Scrolls game.
