Lots of people ITT missing the point of the OP. It doesn't matter if the mods don't work or if you have time for them, the OP itself is not about you using mods it's about the influence of MODs. For instance, Obsidian noticed that weapon customization was one of the big and popular mods for FO3, so in NV they put it into the game (this is where it affects you, console gamers!)
I don't think they're missing the point.
I think they're largely ignoring the point because it offers very little in the way of fodder for debate or system wars.
Instead they're reacting to the title at face value, which naturally, rightly, and intentionally puts them on the defensive.Ah, the problem a lot of threads with a well thought out point fall into here in SW. Sadly, I think he is right. The OP scored a blow on the consolites, the flapping posts in the early part of this thread are very amusing, but that's about all SW will ever give you. For what it's worth you could've gone with a less attention grabbing title...and wtached the thread slide down the pages, reply-less.
