What is going to sell better on the Switch, Skyrim or FIFA 18?

The Elder Scrolls V. Skyrim. 193 44.06%
 
FIFA 18. 160 36.53%
 
They will practically sell the same. 20 4.57%
 
The rabbids will consume us all. 65 14.84%
 
Total:438

Out of all the 3rd party games coming to the Switch this year, the two I've seen people arguing more about are TES Skyrim and FIFA 2018. Outside of Mario + Rabbids (which is technically a Mario game), these two seem to be the biggest western 3rd party games for the Switch, and their success or failure could mean a lot for the system in the long run. So which one do you think it's going to sell better, Skyrim or FIFA 18?

Skyrim PROS Skyrim CONS
Skyrim on the go. Skyrim is already everywhere else, and at a discounted price.
Nintendo consoles like games like Skyrim, just like Zelda BOTW's sales prove. Bethesda has a less than perfect rep when it comes to launch performances, so it might hold back initial sales.
  Not a single mention of mods, implying that they may not come to this version.

 

FIFA PROS FIFA CONS
FIFA Switch is coming at the same time as the other versions. They haven't included features the other versons have, like the Story mode, making this version look inferior.
Local multiplayer on the go seems like a great deal. EA's previous "Unprecedented partnerships" might scare Nintendo fans away.
  Its sales will inmediately stop after the next FIFA is announced.

Skyrim no contest. Nintendo fans love open world fantasy games. Sports games will have build up that love for now. Maybe a year or two from now my statement will be flipped.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

I will definitely buy fifa day one.
But with Skyrim i don't know... I played it when in came out on my 360 and although i spent like 100 hours doing side quest i never finished it, maybe this time i will. It also depends in the release date, according to some site, it coming oct 23 so is really close to Odyssey



FIFA 18 might save the European market for Nintendo, but we'll see about Skyrim. It received countless ports so I doubt this will sell as much as people think it might

Maybe if Nintendo would start making good sports games again like Ken Griffey Jr Baseball (SNES, N64), Play Action Football (NES, SNES), Ice Hockey (NES), and a few others then they would have more people buying their games (sure some of their sports games were turds but usually most were decent to good).  They still own a 10% stake in Mariners so I think it would be a great time for another Ken Griffey Jr Baseball but perhaps they just don't want to pay the royalties for the players names.  They could go the SNES route with all fake players besides Griffey but they pretty much need to get royalties for players names these days.  They could even do a PGA game instead of a Mario Golf unless EA has exclusive rights on PGA.  Love me some Mario Golf but hell perhaps some real sports for a change.

I still don't know why they haven't done a Switch FIFA Bundle, at least in Europe. Sure, the hardware supply is low, but even a limited run would have sparked a lot of interest.
