MP1st - Why modtools are so important to the PC gaming community and why developers should listen.
I find it horrifying that anyone needs to have this topic explained to them.
Because it's the only thing that separates them from console gaming?
I find it horrifying that you think some people don't need this explained to them. Not everyone is aware is about mod tools and this explains it why its important.
because they are great.
Cause they're nerds that whine and bitch about everything. Its that simple. No article needed
No we prefer to play games the way we want and not be spoon fed by devs. Example. Skyrim is way to easy. So I installed the realistic combat mod making damage higher so now I die in 1-2 hits and so do enemies. Another one? Fixing what devs decide not to. How many times have u played a game and wanted something to look deferent or play different? That's why we love mods. U ignoramus.
I dont care how pasionate you are for mods. Nude skins are creepy and unnecessary. Porn and games just dont go together.
If you don't want them you don't download them? I don't and I don't let the fact they exist bother me. But surely if said game has violence then a boob is harmless. Take Skyrim, with mods you get boob, but it doesn't take a mod to feast on an innocent in their sleep does it
Because look at the amount of great games that have stemmed from mods. Mods im convinced are one of the cornerstones of innovation in gaming and have made so many game series it is hard to count.
Many modded get hired by devs too.
Exactly, just imagine an FPS MP world without Counter Strike.
There is some great people who have yet to be discovered, this is a great way to show their talent in a way that can be very economical.
At best, it's basically free DLC. And at it's worst it's entirely avoidable.
At best its an entire game within a game. gameception. I think its really sad that not as many devs release mod tools as before, sure it gives them a chance to shovel their dirty DLC packs but I think a game like Far Cry 2 could have been amazing with just a few simple mods / tweaks and not have gotten so much hate for example.
Because it extends the life of a game by offering is a whole bunch of new content for free. Ofcourse we're passionate about it.. we get more value from mods than cod drones pay for their yearly update.
Ugh. You PC gamers and your stupid mods. If you need to mod the game to have fun, then you shouldn't have it in the first place.
Do you enjoy missing the point all the time? I enjoyed GTAIV on the PC, with mods I made an experience I enjoy even better by having licensed vehicles and visuals that far outstrip the stock PC visuals. I didn't need them, but they certainly weren't detrimental. I used to be able to get loads of free maps for FPS games and with a bit of sifting we always had a list of 20-30 awesome maps on the server. Without mod tools this isn't possible, it's also entirely possible that without new maps I would have grown tired of a game I previously enjoyed extending it's worth even more. If "You console gamers" don't understand how this stuff works I advise you just keep your mouth shut. Hell, lots of people love playing CoD competitively yet don't realize that a lot of the features that make CoD semi tournament ready were implemented from the PAMMod for CoD1 way back in 2003.
You just got trolled. Sad but true.
pc gamers are passionate period. There have been some great mods over the years, like dota and counter strike for example.
Day of Defeat, Insurgency, Firearms, Project Reality, Desert Combat, Sven Coop(hL1), Red Orchestra, Forgotten Hope, Hostile Intent and Natural Selection. All amazing MP Mod Projects and none of them cost me anything, beyond purchasing the game that was being modded.
people who have only been playing consoles and talking smack on the PC need to wake up and understand that the PC has way more ways to expand a game and modify.

It's easy. PC gamers = elite group with knowledge of modding. Console gamers = dirty peasants who don't care.
Moddb has saved my boredom many times by refreshing my old games with new maps and modes.
Modding, for me, is the best part of PC gaming, and what truly sets it apart from console gaming (not shiny graphics). Ever played a game on console thinking I wish they would change this, or add in this? That is why modding is awesome. Even better are entire games created by modding, hell some of the most popular PC games were originally mods.
