This was exactly what I thought upon entering the topic. Modded Skyrim is flat out beautiful if you have a rig that can handle it.
Because you can't get ENBs and 4k texture packs for lots of other games, right?
Skyrim is nothing special, i fact it's visually crude.
LOL! You're not going to find any other game that can match modded Skyrim in terms of photo realism and actual beauty. You can make Skryim look like what ever you want, and make every single aspect of it ridiculously good looking. Most other games don't let you make EVERYTHING look fantastic down to the tiniest ring or pebble on the ground.
Modded skyrim looks good from a realistic standpoint, but honestly the graphical style is a little bland (at least on the ENBs I've seen).
I have beautiful lush green jungles with vibrant blues and yellows everywhere. You can literally make it look like what ever you want, there's a mod that makes it look like a Mario game if you wanted that. There is no way for it to be "bland" because it can look like what ever you think looks good
There's no point having 4k textures slapped onto models that limp around like demented donkeys, violently twitch when they invariably bump into each other.
I don't care if there's raytraced visuals, Skyim's models, landscapes, colours, architecture , anims, everything is obscenely ugly.
it's visually the most vulgar, disgusting looking game I've ever seen and must reflect the base sensibilities of the gibbering orangutans that made it
Animation mods, What are they?!
Oh wait this is what they are and they fix the problems you had
Though Ningishzida be a contentious online person with an exaggerated use of hyperbole, I agree that instead of relying on the fans to make the game better - maybe Bethesda should make better models and animations.
I'll probably get a lot of hate for this, but Metroid Prime always stood out to me when speaking on these things. I understand it's old now and there are games like Uncharted/Last of Us/The Order, but idk...Metroid Prime just takes it for me.
