I mean, the price is the same as when it just got launched on pc (80CAD)
I can buy it on pc for like 20$
if you tell me "ye but u hav Zelda kit"
ill say, ITS LINK NOT ZELDA and also that im pretty sure i can get it through mods support on pc

So, tell me, why should i waste all that money for a game i can get on another plateform for half of half the price

You shouldn't. Unless you always have the urge to play Skyrim on the bus or metro, don't waste your money to buy it on the Switch. Just play it on PC. Now, if you have a bad PC that doesn't have an up-to-date graphics card, just buy it on the Switch. It really depends on your current situation.

No one is forcing you to buy it

I own it on PS3 and PC, but I still bought it on Switch. I got it because portable Skyrim is something I've wished for for years. Sure I can play it on a laptop but this is different.
If you're looking for something extra to try and sell you, really you should keep looking and just get something else. This is Skyrim, plain and simple. Glitches and all, just the way I like it.

Honestly? I don't believe it's worth it. Paying full price for a 6 year old game that is lacking in terms of features? Nope. I'm waiting til it drops to about $10. If that never happens? Then oh well.

How's it lacking? It got all DLC.

Also, I got it for 40€ on Black Friday.

I personally would like to buy it for portability and because I like the game, but I am not planning to pay full price for it.
Not a chance, I will wait some time for it to go below 40€, I already have it on Steam anyway, but I don't have a PC to play it :(
(and I didn't play more than 5 hours back when I had a PC)

Oh, fuck... It was selling for 40€ somewhere?
Meh, missed opportunity.

No mod support is a HUGE letdown. I understand that the hardware may not support it... It looks to be just above the Xbox 360/PS3 graphics. All DLC? Cool. Still over 4 years old at this point. This was a shameless cash grab. Do I think it's worth it? No. Am I going to judge you for buying it? Nah. Skyrim on the go sounds highly enticing.. Not for $60. I bought Odyssey instead.

I agree with everyone. Buy it for portability. That is if you're still going to play it. I see no reason to buy it at that price though. Maybe when it's on sale. That'd be great. Until then, It's a no for me. But damn, portable Skyrim does sound good, the same goes with Doom and all other AAA ports.

Again, got it for 40 instead of 60, and never played it before.
