I'm interested in a Switch exclusive RPG. These are the 2 which interest me the most. The artstyle of Octopath Traveller is very appealing to me, and suits the Switch amazingly well. It looks more visually appealing than Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with its crisp visuals and amazing artstyle as well as the higher framerate. It looks like a good classic RPG game which I used to enjoy a long time ago and look to get back into with this game.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has an epic scale and third person camera which appeal to me. The combat is more animated and pretty good. It does look horrible though with the jaggies and aliasing and the low resolution with some framedrops. The voice acting is horrible, which is worse than no voice acting.
I would probably enjoy the 2 games but can't afford them so which do I play first? I wouldn't have time to play the other, as right when I finish the game I buy I'll play God of War on NG+ and then Spiderman, Red Dead Redemption 2, Just Cause 4, Metro Exodus, Days Gone, Sekiro, Devil May Cry 5.
