I am surprised that someone prefers Xenoblade X over Xenoblade 2. That is kinda rare. Also, Xenoblade X plays nothing like Xenoblade 2. Xenoblade X is much closer to a Skyrim than Xenoblade 2. So I can see why Zorg prefers Skyrim.
I prefer Xenoblade 2 but I still put 100+ hours on Skyrim. I think both are worth a purchase if you like JRPGs and WRPGs.
