I can remember how many issues the old console versions had.
I don't see how you can bash making a game accessible on more platforms, if it was re-released over and over on the same platform then yeah.

I remember when it got announced for the Switch and people thought that it wouldn't work. Hopefully this proves that it can and is not just a cut down section of the entire map.

I think I should have been a little clearer, more the fact that they are asking full retail price for a game from 2011.

I'm all for more classics coming to Switch, but that is a lot of money for a game that is almost seven years old. Yes, I know that development for new platforms costs money, but it is a lot of money.

Remastered games are usually sold at full price too.

While I do agree with you, in this case, Skyrim has been remastered and rereleased so many times that they are just milking it completely. It's more of a cash grab than doing gamers a favor by bringing back a classic game that is STILL played a ton on all current platforms it's on.
I think this is what Mark's issue is. The fact that it's still played and popular they just keep releasing it to milk it.

Well I don't agree that is a good enough reason to not bring more games to the Switch though. If I was a Switch owner I'd welcome portable versions of my favourite games.

Coming from a Switch owner. I'm all for Skyrim coming to it because it proves it can handle massive games if developed right, and I'm all for other games coming. I for one would kill to see F1 and Metro to come to it. But I do see where NBD and WYP are coming from with how many times Skyrim has been remastered and released even I'll say it's a bit stupid by now. I can't see it selling terribly well though. There's too many players who have sunk so much time in the other versions to even think it's worth starting the game all over again for the sake of portability.
