    Same with Bayonetta. Basically, if it's available I will always change it.

    Got it for £20 so once done will probably sell on and take a five quid hit. Don't see the point in going digital as it is not the type of game I will revisit I don't think. Only place I go digital is on Steam as that will always be there unless somehow they go out of business. With Nintendo if I get their next console, they may want me to buy it again or it may not be available to play.

    Have you been able to do that on any of the HD versions? I don't remember seeing it. Definitely not on the PS3 and Vita versions.

    There was a international version on the PS2 which had japanese/english audio with english menu/subtitles available.

    Graphics remind me of Guild Wars to be honest.

    Ok def one to be played in handheld mode. Looks great on the little screen. Awful on the big one xD. Even with the Seki 'M Cable' cable can't help this game lol.

    I bought X and XII in the sale. I can't get into the older ones as there's no nostalgia there for me and they have aged poorly.

    I agree. I played IX for a while on the Switch and whilst it was OK the whole thing hasn't aged very well at all. Hate the map traversal and wandering around towns. Battles were a bit of a yawn as well.

    Hows the text size? Can it be altered?

    I actually regretted replaying X a couple of years ago as it was no way near as good as I remembered it when playing on release. I think this was the first FF game that took the gameplay in the wrong direction. Final Fantasy 7 is simply a much better game in every way except for graphics imo. I can always easily go back to playing FF7 and still enjoy it.

    Text size is great on the lil screen. Everything totally legible.

    Honestly it looks great portable. It's when you put it on the big screen it's like eeeww. I compared with Xbox One X and Switch side by side for the lulz. Yup stick to portable.

    That aside though, it's amazing. What an epic game to have on the go. Amazing achievment for the Switch imho. Plays great, even better with headphones.

    That's the difference, you're going back to FF VII so you have nostalgia when you play. As a first time player FF VII is horrible to play compared to dragon quest XI.

    I suppose. Nostalgia did not help me at all with FFX though :p

    Can the main story be skipped? To be able to play the DLC story? You can on PC, plus I have not played the DLC

    After completing BOTW o was thinking about picking up Witcher 3 to fill that void.

    Concerned though as never been into Elder Scrolls or tried any other Witcher.

    Witcher 3 was an absolutely stunning game when I played it on the PS4. One of my all time favourites. Never got around to playing the blood and wine expansion though which is supposed to be brilliant as well.

    I've finished VII about four times now. VIII has always been a thorn in my side as I lost a 60+ hour save back in the day on PC and have never completed it. I did buy it again on the Vita but only got as far as the second disc.
    I'm not too fussed about buying IX in the sale now as the saving isn't huge. X on the other hand though is very tempting considering the physical copy only includes a digital code for X-2 so resale value will be low anyway.

    Also finished Link's Awakening yesterday, loved every minute of it.

    Just finished Zelda LA, what a brilliant little game, thoroughly enjoyed it. I really hope they bring back some more old Zelda games if this how good they are.
    Now onto Sniper Elite to tide me over until LM

    I've got a feeling they will remaster the old Zelda games because as it currently stands we have had a new zelda game every year (so far) so i have a feeling 2021 will see a new zelda remaster
