Without the mods there is almost no immersion IMO.

I would say mod it graphically as much as you can before playing.

I'd say play vanilla until you get bored or frustrated with it, then mod to taste.

Agreed. Deal with vanilla at least long enough to see what you would like fixed.

USE MODS, for the love of god use mods.

If you play vanilla, and you have a 3-digit IQ, you'll get bored with the game shortly and won't even wanna go through again with mods.

If you like screwing around you'll like the game well enough, though if you want any kind of satisfying questing you'll be disappointed.

Mods have the only decent quests, but most don't last that long. The meat and potatoes of the game's story and quests are just awful however and mods have not done a thing for them yet.

Troll post?

If you believe Skyrim's Main Quest (and any of its other quests for that matter) aren't completely dull then I feel miserable for whoever had to teach you in school.

I honestly agree with you on this. GTAV's missions 'quests' were well done and varried IMO and I'm comparing them because they're both open world games even though the material is completely different. Skyrims quests bored me to death and they should really takes notes from GTA in their next game.

SkyUI is a must. Makes the UI much more mouse/keyboard friendly and I'd never play the game without it. It's best with the Skyrim script extender because then you can use all the bells and whistles with it. Seriously, it's a Must Have in every sense of that phrase.

I don't understand why Skyrim's world is so boring. I recently restarted it too, and the world is just so... Lifeless. Besides just being ugly it's too damn empty. No wonder they made fast travel such a prominent feature, traveling is boring in the game.

if you don't get anything else, for your sake, get SkyUI.
Let us assume that for the sake of assumption that I am always right.

Alright folks! Ive gone on and installed Skyrim. Made a decision then to just add HD texture mods, patches, and the skyUI. Any recommendations on specific ones to install?

Eh I'd recommend going for vanilla first so that way when you get bored, you can refer to the texture mods and ENB mods. It really revamps the game. It's what got me to play and stick with Fallout 3 really.
