10 Gaming Mods That Improved The Original In Every Way

10 Gaming Mods That Improved The Original In Every Way | Game Mod Culture | Scoop.it

Modding might be the best thing about PC gaming. Small teams and individuals, usually totally unafilliated with the original developers, have created some incredible mods over the last couple of decades. In fact, many of the particularly popular mods have gone on to become official expansions, standalone games, or even the beginnings of an entirely new genre.


Thanks to the open platform, a mod is able to fundamentally alter the original game, sometimes to the point that it barely resembles the game it’s based upon. Alternatively, they may be able to bring an aging game back to life, extending a title’s lifespan significantly.


We’ll be taking a look at the mods that just improve or enhance the original gameplay in a substantial way, while keeping what made the base game great. Therefore, classic mods that completely changed the games they’re based on, like DotA, Counter-Strike and Team Fortress won’t be featured on this list. ...

The Swedish Military's Recruiting Game Is Really Fun

The Swedish Military's Recruiting Game Is Really Fun | Game Mod Culture | Scoop.it
Games as recruiting tools aren't anything new, but this little free browser game was more entertaining to me than America's Army ever was.
Cameron Schwach's insight:

At it's core, this is an original program and not a mod. But the fact that players have found it and begun using it in a means other than recruitment, I'd have to say it's in the beginning stages of becoming a mod. I Will keep an eye out for more games that could be based off this concept of a 4-player, timed, puzzle challenge, that either rewards or punishes for teamwork (or lack thereof).

 

Currently I know MMOs follow this idea for the most part. Guilds/parties team up and work together to achieve larger rewards within the game (reward), and if they fail to work together they incur penalties for failing (punishment). But it's a very abstract way of thinking of an MMO party/raid, where as this puzzle game is a bit more direct.

Once Upon A Time, Bethesda Almost Went Out of Business

Developer Bethesda Game Studios was almost shut down in the late nineties, executive producer and game director Todd Howard revealed recently.

 

Speaking in an interview with German gaming publication Gamestar, translated by Kotaku, Howard spoke of the difficult times following the developer's release of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.

 

"We spread ourselves thin. We started doing a lot of games, and they just weren't good enough. And they weren't the kind of games we should've been making at the time," Howard said. ...

Animated Dwarven back pack at Skyrim Nexus - mods and community | Game Mod Culture | Scoop.it

I do not understand English. 
This sentence is written by machine translation. 

This mod can get the animated back pack of a picture. 

You do the console command "help pack" and get it. 
Made craftable
Dwarven back pack
Jewelry category Requires .
Enjoy!

Cameron Schwach's insight:

So the person who made this doesn't understand English. Basically this mod adds a bunch of very awesome, animated, backpacks. Used with a flight mod, many of these "backpacks" server as jetpacks instead!

Why indie videogaming is so important

Why indie videogaming is so important | Game Mod Culture | Scoop.it
What indie videogames lack in technical polish, they make up for with imagination. Simon explains why they're so important...

Last year, GTA V became the fastest-selling piece of entertainment in history. Total War: Rome II, SimCity and Tomb Raider also came out last year, and were big hits. Part of me is overjoyed that my favourite entertainment medium is now so hugely popular. Yet another part of me wishes it was still more of a niche pursuit, as it was in the 1980 and 90s.

 

I cut my gaming teeth on an Amstrad CPC (thank you Lord Sugar). It had a keyboard, a disk drive, and a green screen. Whenever I saw my dad trying to work on this thing I would be amazed, dazzled and aghast at just how ridiculously dull and turgid the beast was. Just lines and numbers on a green screen generating more numbers and lines. I shudder to even think about it now. ...
