Hey guys, I was just looking through a discussion I had of discord with another person regarding Bethesda games and mods. I've been playing Fallout New Vegas with a few mods and learned the process now. It was a little daunting at first, but I'm eager to dive in further!

So, I've played Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim before. Actually put a LOT of time into vanilla Skyrim back on the PS3, with a fair bit of time on the other two titles. Probably least time spent with Oblivion... This leads to my main question: What is the best Elder Scrolls game to play with mods? One would assume Skyrim, but I've also been told Morrowind has been worked over to hell and back in 2017 lol.

Just some key factors for me:

-I'd likely be avoiding main quests etc with Skyrim. How much can modding change this game?
-I would be getting Skyrim Legendary Edition, not the Special Edition.
-I'm not overly interested in weapons, armour, skins, silly weapons etc kinda mods.
-My computer isn't great...

Would also love to hear of any opinions on mods that are simply 'game changers' or so unique they're worth considering. Thanks!

If its just graphics mods your interested in Skyrim is the obvious choice. Most of the mods can simply be installed with nexus. Oblivion and Morrowind can take some work. Skyrim also has the biggest mod community.

Don't bother with Skyrim then.

Don't bother with any of them.

You should get Skyrim and try out total conversion mods like Requiem. Modding Oblivion is a nightmare because Oblivion is a crappy game, and Morrowind really doesn't require many mods for the game to be playable. Skyrim is without a doubt the best Elder Scrolls to mod as it's the most flawed yet due to it being the most recent one has the most potential.

No, he should get Legendary. Getting SSE would be a big mistake.

If you want to revisit Oblivion but want a new experience, try out Nehrim. In the same vein try out Enderal on Skyrim, which I think is made by the same people as Nehrim.
2017 Goal: 400pp and 500pp. Current top play: 307pp

Both are awesome but I like Enderal MUCH more. Can't wait for the Forgotten Stories addon.

@TC: I'd say Skyrim Legendary (PERMA and all the neat stuff) - but the SE will get more support when the Script Extender works as it did on the "classic" version.

In my experience Oblivion has the most interesting mods, but it's also the least stable game. When I found a few great mods to put together I was crashing to desktop every 5 to 30 minutes. Skyrim was the most stable for me when running a handful of mods.

It dosen't matter if you mod them or not...they are still The Elder Scrolls - shallow, bland, boring and stale. (apart from TESII: Daggerfall of course!)

Daggerfall was the most bland. It had the most copy pasted areas ever. I bet you're one of those people who never played it but act like you did.
