Belief in Mod?

Good morrow Citizens! With the release of the new Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, pegged for the end of this year (November 11th at the time of writing) I’ve been having a little think about what I’d like to see in the new game bearing in mind all the things I adored about its predecessor, Oblivion. And I realised, with some shock, that I actually don’t like vanilla Oblivion all that much. What made the game so special and absorbing for me were the plethora of mods the community made for the game. When I go on one of my Oblivion binges the first thing I do is install a whole heap of these mods, additions that do everything from make basic changes to the interface to adding entirely new quests and characters. I find I can’t stand to play the game without them. So…
My my main question to you Citizens is this; do you mod? And if so, what games do you mod and (perhaps most importantly) how essential do you feel mods are (or can be) to your enjoyment of games?
