Thou, noobs! Behold the glory that is the hi-res texture of our ice cream cone! Your L33tness, is it not a fact that only you can see your mod... NOOBS, I SAY!!!
If you play games with mods, what was the craziest or the best one you've ever tried?
Oh Gamer Luna... Just in case for you non-gaming types: mods (or modifications) are typically fan-made additions, both big and small, that you can install over a game for additional content or a complete change in its original form. We may call a game free of mods a 'vanilla' game.
For Skyrim: Requiem, Frostfall, Dev Azura airship mod, Jaggersfeld (or another player home mod depending on character I'm playing), Monster Mod and one last thing that cannot have it's glory described: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA7QQt….
For Fallout: New Vegas: Project Nevada, Monster Mod, A World of Pain, Niner, all mods made by Someguy2000 and the Fluttershy Companion Mod, which keeps Flutters in character and is absolutely amazing. Seriously, she has responses for just about everything in the vanilla game save the Dead Money DLC.
Car & graphics mods for GTA IV are a huge hemorrhoid in the butt, but they make the game AWESOME! It's so much funner to run over senior citizens in the actual Cadillac Escalade instead of the Cavalcade.
I am far to fail at using the computer controls to be able to ditch my console for computer. I like my controllers. That, and I personally view mods as a different (and slightly more tolerable) form of cheating. I am aware that I am in the minority with that opinion, but stuff that alters the game from it's original content (with the exception of DLC's since they are still kind of original content,) just seems wrong to me. But that's just me.
Fair enough. XBox controllers work with PC though. That's what I use mostly anyway. I have difficulty getting used to keyboard and mouse for gaming. I can see how some would think mods are a form of cheating but not always. For example, if I've played the crap out of a game and done all the quests and explored all the dungeons etc. then find mods that add new places to explore and/or new quests to do, then that's adding more replay value to the game which to me doesn't qualify as cheating. Just my thoughts.
Fair enough. Granted I rarely play Xbox (I like my handhelds, playstation 2 or 3, or Wii/Gamecube) so I guess I just wasn't cut out for computer gaming. I can see your point of view though. Those kinds of mods are tolerable for me, I just hate the kinds of mods that power up characters in any way shape or form. I guess I am just a purist. (Also noteworthy that my only experience with altering games was with an action replay on a game that was stupidly difficult and a tedious grind, an action I still regret.)
What makes or breaks a game for me are plot and characters, a reason I could never truly get into minecraft. (Don't get me wrong, I still like it, it's just not super great to me.) If it's got good plot, good characters, good challenge, and a good atmosphere, it's my kind of game.
I remember playing vanilla Fallout New Vegas on XBox 360 and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Then I discovered the Nexus website with all the mods for New Vegas on PC and I was like "Why in the sweet name of all that is holy have I been playing this game on console all this time?!" Weirdest mod? Oh man, there are just too many. There is an MLP pony race mod so, you know, I use that. I mean why experience the nuclear wasteland as a human when you can as Trixie or Lyra or Rarity etc. It makes the most sense to use Derpy, though. She's the only one who is an actual courier after all.
