I'm fairly certain Skyrim could've been done on Wii U; Assassin's Creed 3 and 4 got ported over and I'm pretty sure those are harder on the CPU than Skyrim. Same for Watch Dogs and Arkham City actually.

As for BOTW, it's a case of Nintendo knowing their own hardware better than anyone and pushing it to its limits.

Yeah, AC looks better than Skyrim and runs on WiiU. I'd say ACIV (taking art style into account) maybe looks even better than BotW.

Yeah tricky to compare with such wildly different art styles. BOTW does seem to use more demanding effects like volumetric lighting and physics-driven particles.

I was really hoping the other two games would release on the Switch before the third, I don't want to jump in blind...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

First Witcher is PC only game (well, Mac is kinda PC also I guess), there was port of sorts in development way back for PS360, but it was never finished. Given that it's very mouse centric game, including combat, there were lot of changes, but deal fell apart in the end. As for TW2, I guess they could've done it, since there is 360 port of it.

But honestly, you don't need to play any of them, there are some references, but overall it's not that important. However, if you do want to play TW2, since TW3 is mostly open world version of it (personally I find TW2 to be a better game), maybe you can play it on PC given it will run on right about anything newer than 2009/10 (and some even older) and it goes for $20 on GOG and Steam.

I'm glad to hear that; I really enjoyed Witcher 2 but I had some trouble following it at times and I wonder if that's cos it expects an existing knowledge of either the first game or the books.

I have to be honest, by the time I got to play TW2 (around '12/13, Enhanced edition), I mostly forgot everything from TW1, but didn't have much problems following it. Gap between TW2 and 3 was much smaller, I've played it when it released in 2015, so I've probably remerbered more, but except for maybe one or two times it didn't really matter, and even those are not that important.
