Some mods do ruin games, While others fix what is broken. So its a case by case thing.

Seriously? A single player game? No way, unless you play the game using silly mods for the very first time. That may have an impact on the storytelling and immersion. But if you already completed the majority of the game and looking to squeeze even more life out of it, then mods are fantastic.

No, mods don't ruin games. People who download and install mods ruin games.

I can ruin any game for myself by simply watching someone play it on Youtube or use someone else's save file or use a cheat code or a glitch. But whose fault would that be? Mine.

Similarly, if you think an OPTION ruins a game, then you're patently wrong. The guy who wrote that article is a complete dumbass.

I want to have the option to do anything I want to the game I've bought. Mods that give MLP characters in my Skyrim? Not my taste but at least there's the option for those who want it. Mods that make me extremely OP like Illidan's Warglaives of Azzinoth? Sure, they'll be fun to use when I want to feel OP. Mods that make the game much more challenging, making me strategize and think carefully like the DayZ mod? If I'm up for a challenge, I'm game.

So all these options are there for those of us who choose to download and install them. If doing so ruins the game for someone, then he should be wiser and practice more discretion when downloading and installing mods. It's not like someone is forcing mods upon you.

Also, there are complete bug fix mods as well, including one for Skyrim, where a ton of bugs have been fixed. It even existed for Oblivion and playing Oblivion without it is a travesty.

People act like these mods MUST be done on the game. If you like a mod then enjoy it, if not then don't mod the game and just keep it normal.

Yes, because it IS the best thing about playing Skryim on PC. Why would it be bad exactly? Don't like a mod, don't download it, really simple.

My Little Pony mod is bad ass.

How can something optional ruin the game?

Exactly what I was going to say.
