To say that Skyrim is still relevant would be an understatement. A game originally released in 2011, six years ago. Most singleplayer only games can only dream of maintaining that status so long after release. Plus, it shows no signs of slowing down with all the Switch, VR and other variants coming in soon. This list aims to show that no matter the features they pack into these games, they will always fade in comparison to what the modders can think off and add to the game. Heck, an eventual Elder Scrolls VI will just be a new platform for modders to do their work and build on amazing worlds that Bethesda consistently brings.
As for this list – you finished Skyrim, accomplished deeds that no man ever did – and you still don't look cool enough and your weapons don't even glow with power. Don't worry, cause this list has you covered. Here is a top 10 list of Skyrim armor mods that are sure to make you a genuine badass within the world of Skyrim.
