What kind of tool?
"what kind of tool gets an elder scrolls game on a console?"
The "kind of tool" who'd rather not spend the price of the console just on a graphics card.
The "kind of tool" who doesn't want to keep upgrading their PC every couple of years to run the latest game.
I spend all day sat in front of a PC and the last thing I want to do is to go home and sit in front of a PC all evening to play a game. I like to play games casually, so it's nice to be able to go home, sit or lie out on a comfortable sofa and play the game without having to remember a load of key bindings.
If you want to play on a PC, get all the mods and change the scenery, gameplay, etc, then fair play to you and I'm sure you'll have a great time. No complaints or criticism from me. So don't criticize me for wanting to play on a console.
I understand that the PC users are cheesed off about the interface and how it's "dumbing down" for the console users. Blame the game creators for that, not the console users, it was the creators who made the decision to run with a one size fits all solution.
