The world of PC modding is a strange and beautiful place, and if you€™re a PC gamer then there€™s a good chance you already use mods on a semi-regularly basis - or constantly. They can make a game run smoother, improve its functionality, or just make it look prettier; some mods have been so influential that they€™ve even eclipsed their base game, or at least been a huge part of that game€™s success. Minecraft for instance, wouldn€™t have developed half the following without the support of its passionate modding community.
