5 Skyrim Mods That I Love
by Andrea “The Grill” of Geeky Gaming
Hey Geeks, it’s Andrea. And I’m here with a special video today. One that is near and dear to my heart. If you follow us on twitter, you might know that I love Skyrim. I have been playing it every single day lately. Even when I shouldn’t be. I just can’t get enough. And I am never using less than 150 mods at any given time. I usually try not to have more than 300, but hey.. it happens. So if you are interested in seeing any more mods that I love, let me know and we can do some more Skyrim videos. Today I am going to show you 5 Skyrim Mods that I love. They are in no order, just mods that my game wouldn’t be complete without. If you are interested in trying any of these mods, I will include the links in the comments. Alright, let’s go.
5 – Sofia by John Jarvis and Christine Slagman
One of the many things I have really grown to love in a mod is a good follower. I don’t want to sound picky, but I don’t even consider using follower mods anymore if they don’t have custom voices. As far as follower mods go, I really haven’t played with another that is as well done as Sofia. She doesn’t work under the EFF menu, but that is okay because her menus are well done. Sofia has more options than I have seen so far in other character mods. You can talk to her about several things and she has many different responses. Also she randomly will tell you what she is thinking or how she feels about something or someone in the game. She also references certain well known things in Skyrim that players can find humorous. Sofia talks a lot, so if you like a vocal follower, you’ll enjoy her.
4 – The Return of Thorald Grey-Mane by by rhowington
I didn’t really want to do 2 follower mods in the same video, but I couldn’t have Thorald in the video without Sofia. Let me explain. I love Thorald. I love the idea of him coming back into the story as a follower. Everything this guy did with the character was lore-friendly and a great addition to have. If I could have like a fantasy re-do of this mod, it would be for it to have him get together with John Jarvis who did the Sofia mod. If Thorald had his menus and that many options, it would be great. Also, I really want my character to be able to marry Thorald! He is so flirty and great, but my lady can’t marry him. Which I totally get, so it isn’t a complaint. It’s just something I wish for. Anyway these aren’t insults to this wonderful mod, I love it as it is. This is just a fantasy for me. I know it isn’t likely possible to ever happen, but I’m gonna keep dreaming anyway.
3 – TERA Armor Collection by Frigus
Okay so let’s talk about some armor. This mod isn’t just some armor, it is a lot of armor. This armor mod has so much to offer. I think I counted 47 outfits. I’m going to admit as a side note that I haven’t played much TERA. I tested it out a bit, but that’s really it. So someone could have uploaded garbage and said it was from TERA and I wouldn’t have known whether it was true or not. But these armors are gorgeous. Some of them are a bit revealing if you are into that sort of thing. I’m not saying whether I am or not, just that it is a thing. Anyway, there are so many different styles and types of armor in this collection, so I highly recommend it.
2 – Princess Horse Riding by yukl
Some people might not find this mod to be 100% necessary, but for me it definitely is. What the mod does is makes your beautiful lady character ride horses with her legs on one side of the horse like a princess. I love this. When I first got it I was so giddy for it. It just brings me so much joy. It’s the subtle things like this that are so important to a game, right? Yukl, whoever you are, you are awesome.
1 – Superior Lore-Friendly Hair HD Textures by skyrimaguas
Rounding off this list is a very important mod to have in my opinion. The original skyrim hair was very annoying to me. It was stringy and I hated using it. This mod keeps the same designs so it is very true to skyrim, but makes them look nice and smoothe. They redid all of the original hair, male and female. So all of the originals are still there. Still the same. Just better. I’m so happy that this mod exists. So good on you skyrimaguas.
Okay guys, that’s going to do it for this list. I hope you enjoyed these mods. If you want me to share some more with you, let me know! I have so many more favorites. I have no shortage of skyrim mod love. If you want more countdowns, reviews, let’s plays, and other randomness be sure to subscribe.
