Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Skyrim or Xenoblade?

If y'all for epic music, then it's XC2 without hesitation, good story and great worlds exploration there too !

As someone who's put 60 + hours into both, I've give the slight edge to Xenoblade 2 if only because of the price of Skyrim Switch. 

In a vacuum I guess I'd slightly favor Skyrim as I prefer more of the WPRG/open world types, but Xenobalde 2 is definitely $60 well spent, and it's not often I can say that when it comes to games. You can't really go wrong with either.

Basically, if you prefer a more open world WRPG that leans more heavily on gameplay, go Skyrim (although that's not to say Xenoblade 2 isn't a deep and complex RPG, far from it).

If you prefer more of a semi-linear, story driven JRPG, go with Xenoblade. 

No need to beat around the bush. XC2 is extremely linear. Not a problem at all when the world is so vast and linearity is innate to the genre.



Well, this is new.

Hello folks i currently have $70 in eShop credit and need help picking a new game, these are my top 2 picks but feel free to suggest other games as well. Thanks!!!

my vote goes to XBC2
only cause you can get skyrim for ~10$ on PC.

skyrim is the 'better' game.. but for full price i'd say go for XBC2... if you like JRPG's.
skyrim is nice, not played it on switch.. but xeno is a treat if if you like jrpg's with all the clunky things that are in the 'formula'



If you haven't played Skyrim, I'd say start with that... But 100% dependant on the type of game you enjoy. Look at gameplay, and decide for yourself, don't let others do it for you, you're the best judge of your own taste. Neither game can be ruined by looking at the first few minutes, I think.



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Are you sure? Skyrim has some Lord of the Rings-esque music.  Very engaging. Its good to hear that it has a good soundtrack though.

If you never played Skyrim before, I highly recommend getting the Switch version! It's an awesome game imo.

Dude ACE matched if not upstaged the first Xenoblade and it has one of the best OST's ever in an RPG. It's a super group of gamings best composers. The first game had among many others the composer who did Guiles them in SFII. Composers from Final Fantasy, Smash Bros, and others. Mitsuda leads the group who is a legend himself.  They also hired a group of Celtic singers for some tracks, It's flat-out gorgeous.



I'm recommending Skyrim.

Not because I necessarily think it's a better choice, but because I want you to support third parties

Well let's not belittle Skyrim's OST.  Mitsuda is a legend and ACE is fantastic but Soule is very highly renowned in his own right.  Skyrim has truly fantastic music, as does Oblivion and Morrowind.  It's just a very different approach and style.

Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2 OSTs are masterful though. 



Depends if you like your games like final fantasy or more western i would say?
