It’s 2015, and somehow we’re still interested in Skyrim, a game that came out in 2011. That’s in part to the vast, open-world that Bethesda created, and also because of the amazing mods that have supported, updated, and expanded the game immeasurably. Heading back to Tamriel can be a magical experience, but these mods take it to another level entirely.
Disclaimer: modding is not for everyone. It can lead to hours of frustrating troubleshooting, but it also has the potential to create experiences far beyond what the vanilla game can produce. If you’re unsure of where to start, I can’t recommend the YouTuber Gopher enough. Check out his introduction to modding here.
