One of the very best things about PC games that elevates them beyond their console counterparts (other than ridiculous framerates, better graphics  and thick rhinoceros callouses on your mouse hand) is the wonderful work done by modding communities. Games like DayZ, DOTA and Counter-Strike wouldn’t exist without the ability for dedictaed gamers to tinker and as a result make their own games. Nowhere is the power of modding more evident than with Skyrim, which has given us delightful things like a Macho Man Dragons and homicidal ponies.  This could be the best Skyrim mod yet.

Called Super Skyrim Bros, this mod by user “clintmich” adds a certain Mushroom Kingdom flair to the otherwise dull and dreary Skyrim. It’s currently in development with no release scheduled – but considering it’s got a couple of copyrighted elements in there, I don’t expect it to last very long on Skyrim Nexus once it’s been released.

As I’ve mentioned previously – this isn’t the only Mario/Skyrim connection; The voice of the Skyrim’s Parrthurnax was provided by none other than the voice of super Mario himself, Charles Martinet

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
