The single greatest benefit of owning The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PC is the plethora of modding opportunities available to you. Nearly every facet of the game can be altered in some way, which practically washes away any possible flaw or issue you might have with it.

Felt the game was too easy? Add a difficulty mod, making your experience more akin to Dark Souls. Feel there isn’t enough content in the game? There’s dozens of free expansion packs available. Want the game darker, brighter, prettier, more immersive? There are mods for all of those things too.

These mods can radically alter the experience, crafting an RPG that meets the needs of any individual player. Looking for mods to install is like going to the store for your favourite game and finding hundreds of DLC packs tailored specifically to you. On sale. Like for free. Forever.

From new maps and quests to minor tweaks and new armour sets, the additions you can make to your game are innumerable, allowing for an infinite amount of customisation.

Detractors of modding might say that it’s better to play these games “The way they’re meant to be played”, but it could be argued that a fully modded Skyrim is the way it’s meant to be played, as if the developers could have made the game bigger, better, and more beautiful, they would have done, right?
