What are your favorite games to mod?

Recently, I've gotten back into Skyrim for the umpteenth time since I got it for the Xbox 360 back in 2011. This game was a large motivator for me building my first PC years ago, due to the wealth of different mods available for it. Normally before each playthrough, I'll revise all my mods and add/remove a bunch to tailor the playthrough to whatever kind of character I'll be making. I'm currently running a stealth archer (very original, I know) with a modest 65 mods active. Fortunately, I have actually played more hours on this character than I spent modding in preparation. 

Other games that fall into this category, albeit to a lesser extent, include Oblivion, Fallout 3/New Vegas/4, and of course Minecraft.

What are some games that you have modded into oblivion? Or do you prefer to play your games vanilla? 

  • I just recently got my PC, and like you one of the biggest reasons were mods. I love Bethesda games, primarily Fallout, so as you can imagine that's what I first learned to mod; Although I have gotten into modding Left 4 Dead 2, Cyberpunk, and Insurgency: Sandstorm.

  • Terraria has one of the greatest modding scenes out there. So many amazing ones that make the game completely new.

  • Skyrim is such a fun game to mod. The mods also make it so much more and have added to its proliferation. I am kind of excited for the Elder Scrolls VI and hope they allow mods as well. 

  • Doom (1993) - I have 800 GB of mods of the original and I have a server for my friends and family to join at the drop of a hat. Brutal Doom is one of our favorites but I also like the HxRTC texture and lighting mods.

  • How the heck is there 800gb of mods for it. That’s crazy. 

  • I’ve been modding battlefront 2 the most but I’ve also modded the Jedi knight games to get them to look a lot better.

    There is way more than that. Back when PlanetDoom was up it was 600 GB and that was 17 years ago.

  • Left 4 Dead 2 has some of the funniest mods I've seen, I hope you're enjoying them! What do you think about Insurgency: Sandstorm from a general standpoint?
