We know the importance of game mods and how awesome they are, but it’s nice to see a prolific game developer talk about them in the same vein as we do. In an interview with G4TV, Todd Howard said that mods are very important for a good single player experience and attract a lot of crowds, giving Bethesda some great community spotlights.
He said that he doesn’t like the fact that so many game companies do not even allow gamers to create their own mods, saying that they instead rely on DLCs, which obviously isn’t half as effective and fun as modding tools are.
He went on to mention a few mods for the game, like the Macho Dragon Mod and the Portal 2′s Space Core Mod and talked about how amazed the development team, him included, is with them.
I guess modding is a better option when compared to DRM and piracy blocking- sarcasm intended.
There’s also the new lighting mod which makes Skyrim look absolutely gorgeous, so you should try that out. We even compiled a list of the ten best visually enhancing mods, so have a look at that here, if you want.
