Mods just refine and enhance most games, many games are good without Mods but they can always be better through Mods :geek:

I have not played too many games where mods make a significant difference.

Skyrim.

You can mod out that long cart ride, execution intro sequence. If there ever was a quality of life mod for any game, it is alternate starts for Skyrim.

Also Silent Bradford for FiraXCOM games.

Which games have you modded before, Mods are not supposed to change the fundamental narrative and they cant change certain gaming mechanics but they can add huge variation like character choice, new companions, extra monsters, harder monsters, rewrites of combat style , additional guild quests....the list is long

But this applies to mostly Bethesda games or rather how I have extensively used them

Here is the  current list of official games that Nexus offers Mods for, there are 1074 games supported

Not really a fan of Bethesda games.  I liked Morrowind but it was very obvious since Oblivion that there games are catered to braindead western idiots.

I just think that after Morrowind they realized modders would provide the most content and draw to their games anyway, so they just make a generic sandbox and let them do the rest of the work for free.

Yeah I'm the same.
Which isn't to say there aren't some extensive awesome mods that alter or even add mechanics/items (eg will change how you approach/play the game significantly) or even add areas or something - but that type of mod is pretty rare. 90% of mods are more along the lines of texture/model reskinning (or weather/filter/graphic tweaks or...)  or user discovered bug fixes.  Nothing wrong with that ofc, I like cosmetic changes sometimes.

Or dance mods. I like the dance mods, all rpg's should have them.   :lol:

Imagine for a moment that this very board's company had one of the most egregious cases of mods that make a significant difference in the history of  gaming.  Wouldn't that be something?

Nice streak of warmer weather so that helps the peppers my mom is growing, still not a good crop of them but I guess could be worse with the screwball climate we've had.

Hubby and I trying to figure out/plan the l-desk for my room.  Think we can reuse my current huge desk for part of it and that would mean might be able get it done today if we get off our butts (or next few days at least).

Then I can think about a new gaming TV.  :sorcerer:

You saying Kotor 2 wasn't perfect at launch, despite having had an ocean of development time??? 🤯

 

Honorable mention to two mods I also quite liked: Ja1.13 and "Dungeon be gone" to skip Irenicus' dungeon
