This Skyrim thing has only been out since Friday—FRIDAY—and there already heaps and heaps of mods for the game floating around the internets. The top resource for said mods seems to be on Skyrim Nexus, which plays host to the many different tweaks and changes that users have been coming up with to maximize their Skyrim experience. Most mods range from making more realistic looking blood, textures, or faces, for example, while others make the game more challenging by removing enemies from your compass—things like that.
In fact, there’s already been one mod in particular, unofficially dubbed the “Street View” mod, that’s been getting plenty of press around the interwebs. Like Google Street View, the mod lets you zip and zoom around the entire game map and explore every nook and cranny. Check out this video and see for yourself…
Pretty useful stuff. Very useful indeed–but is it actually fun? Heck no! That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top four best (meaning stupidest/craziest/mentally disturbed) Skyrim mods that super-nerds have come up with so far.
4. Super-hero Executioner Hoods
User Jstonecipher created a pretty bad-ass looking hood modification to bring Spider-Man into the world of dragon slaying and elf-humping. Which makes sense, considering that Peter Parker’s pretty much a huge nerd himself, and would probably lose tons of crimefighting time to Skyrim. Jstonecipher’s official description is pretty awesome:
“Many years ago, in the forgotten depths of Tamriel, a hero was born. He lived among the Frostbite Spiders of Skyrim, and learned stealth tactics and spider things. Like biting people. This was his hood.”
Then, of course, there’s the also cool (but not quite as cool) Rorschach hood made by nickoli002, who writes under the description that Deadpool and Venom hoods are soon-to-follow.
With all this nerd sauce mixed in with your geek flakes, you’ll be shitting comic books and +2 dwarf daggers in no time.
Yeah, I said it.
3. Juggalo Children
Probably creepier than all’nem spiders you gotta kill.
2. My Little Ponies
People really seem to like that new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show. So much so, that these are but two of the several MLP mods I found. First, there’s the pony-themed Canterlot Blanket Bed made by user PaulHoffman.
But far superior to that is the My Little Pony horse skin-mod created by jeffs14, which features the skins of six of the televised pony-friends that you can slap on your horse.
1. Obligatory Nude Mod
You know, it wasn’t that terribly long ago when the most amazing thing any nerdboy could hope for was truth behind the long-rumored “nude code” for Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft, which even in its ideal form would create an extremely shitty looking render of a naked lady.
But these days, everything’s going naked-style. Case in point, this, like the Ponies before it, was but one of many nude mods I came across in searching for this post. But this one, simply titled “Nude Females” by Thepal has my favorite description of anything EVER:
“I decided to accept I am a nude modder and finished the job. This mod removes the underwear from female characters, and adds what should be under the underwear.”
Is it me, or does the description sound somewhat unsure? What should be under the underwear?
Well, despite the lack of definitiveness, yes, Thepal, you figured it out.
But, I’ll admit it—these nude mods always strike me as somewhat unfair and disrespectful to the dignity of the ladies in the game. That’s why I’ve gone a step further and modded the mods.
Take a look:
That’ll teach you some respect, you creep.
Found anything more bizarre (or awesome) than what’s on our list?
