The Best Skyrim Mods – 2016 Edition
If you haven’t played Bethesda’s “Skyrim” yet, stop what you’re doing, go grab a copy today, take a week off from work, and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime. Bethesda really pulled out all the stops in this, their latest foray into the lands of Tamriel. Fans of the series will find a familiar feel, but if you’re new to the series, don’t worry. Everything you need to enjoy the game is given to you from within its framework.
Even so, as glorious as it is, Skyrim can be even better and more enjoyable if you try out some of the mods below. They take a near perfect game and add an extra layer of polish and shine. Here are our recommendations:
While Skyrim is an undeniably beautiful game, this mod takes it to the next level by replacing virtually all of the vanilla textures that Skyrim shipped with, putting high resolution textures in their place. This, of course, does not change any of the game’s mechanics, but it does give you a visual feast to enjoy at every turn.
The Moonpath To Elsweyr
Once you’ve played through the vanilla game, you’ll no doubt begin looking for content to provide new adventures for your stalwart hero, and this is exactly what the “Elsweyr” mod provides. It opens up a new game region, a deadly tropical paradise which is part of a brand new six-quest story line.
While a number of the 22,000 Skyrim mods are not voice acted, this one is, and it adds to the immersion factor and makes it feel like a natural extension of the core game. Highly recommended.
Cutting Room Floor
Are you the type of person who always loves watching the “Director’s Cut” of movies? If so, then those mod is for you! There are scores of hours’ worth of content hidden inside the vanilla game that were cut before it shipped. This mod unlocks those quests, magic items and other bits you never even knew where there.
As mentioned, there are more than 22,000 Skyrim Mods, and this list barely scratches the surface. Even so, if you start with these to get your feet wet, you’re sure to find dozens, if not scores of others that will increase the game’s replay value even more. Enjoy, and happy gaming!
