Could you buy a $20 iOS game?

Let's say a game like Elder Scrolls III, or some really epic game you would enjoy, was ported perfectly to the iOS platform? If it was priced at $20, would you buy it?

If it was an original game for the platform with over 50 hours of non-grinding gameplay, probably.

Ugh... There's a typo in the poll.

"iOS came" = "iOS game"

50 hours? I don't even think Elder Scrolls III has that much game play.

25hours with two very different characters is just as good for me.

Yes, without a doubt, especially if its an RPG like Morrowind.

About 15?
Double price of Chaos Rings?

If it was somehow Oblivion with Morrowind graphics or something in a set then yeah. Or a Halo with 1/2's graphics or something.

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
