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

I see more people betting for Fifa than I've initially expexted, considering the earlier FIFAs on any system are the ones who usually sell the least.

Fifa, its more mass market game.



Hmm, more people are going with FIFA. However, I view Skyrim as something that can sell consistently for a longer period of time, so I'll go with that. Or maybe it's just because Skyrim is something that interests me more



I'll say Fifa



Pocky Lover Boy! 

FIFA. It will have a far bigger marketing campaign.

Having lost FIFA once before, I think Nintendo is in the mood to please EA by subsidizing the sales effort of FIFA (bundles, discounts, giveaways etc).

Skyrim will sell great too though



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Do Fifa games auto update to the new team rosters with internet support. Haven't bought a Fifa game for a while but tended to buy a game just to try when it was a couple years out of date with the wrong team rosters because it then sold for a few pence. Even then didn't get much value out of it. I suspect Skyrim will do better over the long term at least.



Skyrim. Fifa is more of a europe thing and yeah Nintendo isn't the best at...um...Europe.



Skyrim, no contest. Nintendo fans are not really into sports games. An RPG... that's another story.



FIFA of course. It's a brand new game with mass appeal. Skyrim is an old game which anyone could have played for a LONG time if they wanted.



FIFA 18 because I think it will do well in Europe.

Skyrim could beat FIFA 18 though if it comes out on or right before Black Friday.
