Boy do I feel sorry for you. Skyrim without mods.

Why? It's decent even without any mods. You should feel with me every time I play NWN1.


There are 1200+ backers. How do we know there will be any modders among those? Or would they create quality stuff? How many quality stuff? Keep in mind this game comes as rather niche product.

Still. What if I don't want to use any mods? Do I really need third party software for a game I backed/game I wish to play?

LOL. I don't want to missing out. I don't want to be shoehorned into using mods.
All this discussion started with 'modders can fill gaps in game mechanics', like adding origin stories.

Modders aren't game developers. Mods aren't replacement for devs work. Nwn1 had awesome draft and it got discarded. Now game is discounted for less than 9 euros on steam. It's enhanced edition flopped despite great community mods. I simply stating you can't leave game bareboned and leave it up to mods.

I'm with @LadyBard on this. I don't at all care for having to mod my games and only (very grudgingly) use them in those rare instances where they are absolutely necessary.

Flopped =/= outclassed Baldur's gate in terms of sales-

Sorry if I don't share you opinion. I'm not against mods, just against repeating NWN1 fiasco.

Again, a fiasco which exists mostly in your head: https://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/neverwinter-nights
I'm not sure that a "black friday sale" can equate to a fiasco.

Just because some love multiplayer nature of mods in NWN1, I don't think it equals good regular game.

Again, it's your opinion against quasi-universal critical acclaim.
I am mostly talking about SP mods.

To be fair, I see her point. When NW1 came out I hated it and thought it was total dud. However a couple of years later I saw an SP mod that looked interesting and after that I loved it and played many mods. What the community did was amazing.
I also rarely play with mods but since NW1 I make an exception with games like this :)

I suppose I was lucky because I had it with everything at once. Ah, the memories.

Oh I know :P
I think in my case it's mostly cause I have lots of games to go through, so I never spend enough in a single game that I get the itch to test mods on it.
Still, after my experience with NW1 I'm a lot more keen to try them, specially for something dnd-ish. :D
