Ah, mods. Sometimes gamers have to do the dirty work of developers, and actually end up doing a better job than them. Sometimes it’s just to fix a broken game via unofficial patches, or just tinkering with a game to increase the visual fidelity – some modders really don’t disappoint. The PC being such an open-platform, makes it possible for people to get the most out of their hardware and software.
And of course, you need that passion – either for recognition, or for just showing your creativity. There are different types of mods ranging from small to big: Total conversion, add-on’s or just slight fixes and performance updates. The big ones mostly take years to finish, because reasons like lack of funds or manpower. Some games support modding out of the box; some of them don’t – but modders always find a way to get what they want.
