The Tom's Hardware Definitive List of PC Games: Best Skyrim Mods

Are we living in a new "golden age" for PC Gaming? Of course, it is impossible to give a definitive answer. The distance of time and a heaping dose of nostalgia are both necessary prerequisites for any "golden age". And, while it may be easy to argue the merits of one generation over another, one thing is abundantly clear: PC Gaming in 2017 is more widespread and more accessible than ever before. The maturation of digital distribution, a new diversity of platforms, and the adoption of x86 CPU architecture by console manufactures have together, created the perfect environment for a PC Gaming renaissance. PC Gamers have access to more games than ever before, including overlooked titles from past generations and current games that would have been either too costly or too difficult to port. Games are so ubiquitous that you're more likely to hear complaints of having too many games, rather than too few. The number of "good" games is now so great that even the hardest of the most hardcore gamers struggle in their search to find the very best.

To help navigate this brave new world for gaming, Tom's Hardware is in the process of assembling the definitive list of PC games in a number of genres. We've already put a few lists together, but the number of titles is lacking. While the Tom's Hardware Editorial team is few in number, the Tom's Hardware Community is legion. With your input we hope to assemble a list of the best and worst PC games that can truly be called definitive. Over the next few weeks we'll be collecting Community feedback across multiple categories. Once we have a sufficient number of submissions, we'll have the Community vote on the most popular, with a showcase of the winning games on the Tom's Hardware homepage.

This thread will decide the best mods for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

To help get you started here are the Editorial Team's list of their favorite mods for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

May the best mod win!

CBBE. *wink wink, nudge nudge*

Jokes aside though. Regarding mods, could you guys provide guide for mod optimization?
Whenever I install mods (ENBs, jokes, custom followers, and other immersion mods) , the order of the installation becomes a spaghetti bowl, and I end up always getting CTDs.

Yes, I use LOOT all the time. It's probably a mod conflict or a corrupted save.

I agree, SMIM is a good mod. As is "immersive horses", "horses revamped", "climates of tamriel" and AFT "amazing follower tweaks" (multiple followers). Speaking of followers, Vilja is one of the more complete and well done followers I've used (Vilja in skyrim). Lots of options, additional quests and original voice acting, they put a lot of work into that one.

Love the multiple followers perks being a hoarder, pack never has enough room lmao.

Just use the restoration exploit, you'll get 1mil+ carry weight. I've done so on my boots.

I see. Well, this exploit works with any enchantment. Also, you could give these equipment to your followers; making them carry endless amount of stuff.

I'm partial to Dragon Combat Overhaul and to Vivid Weathers. I also really like the aMidianborn series of mods...the game has more variety with these.

My nomination is for Skyrim Flora Overhaul. The rich, dense vegetation it provides really enhances my sense of immersion in the wilderness. It can be hard on your frame rate though.

Retextures and relighting doesn't make the game feel new. It's mods like Enderal which has custom textures, characters, and story which makes the game feels new.
