Best and Worst Skyrim mod reviewers and commentators?
Sometimes when I look at Youtube comments, it seems like some people seem to talk about how some mod reviewers are reviewing the mods in detail. Things like what the mod adds, how does it affect gameplay itself, the commentators personal opinion, and improvements so on. And of course, there are some people who dislike some reviewers because of whatever reasons they have. So I want to know from you guys, who are the best and the worst Skyrim mod commentators and why do you guys think they are who they are?

My personal favorites are the Gamers Comments in the Workshop, or Nexus. I very seldom listen to reviews from YouTube, unless it's someone I know, and has a great rep.

There simply is nothing better than gamers that actually use MOD's. Good & Bad, and make a choice from there. ;)

The only ones I have ever watched are the "Mods of the week" in Gamespot. They have a nice blend of silly and useful, the quality of course varies as in all Internet videos

Off-topic edit: One of the most important things for me is when was the mod last updated, and how often the creator answers peoples questions

Second edit: The mod supply is endless, so what I look for are starting points. The review does not really matter to me as much as the description

I've sometimes wanted to start reviewing mods because I dissect every little thing it adds lol. My Skyrim Review was so huge and in such detail that no one ever really sat through and read it :P.

I don't watch many mod reviews because Machinima kind of ruined it for me. I hated how the screen-saver thing for every one of their mod review videos was a nearly naked woman. I don't care if other people get those mods that is their thing! I just don't want to deal with it so I stopped looking up mod reviews after seeing that enough times

EDIT: Also I love your name OP!

i dont read any at all, i look at endorsements and number of downloads on nexus, install it and then see for myself. a reviewer hating it or even 90% of the population hating it doesnt mean ill hate it, especially for aesthetic mods like how my female character looks. ive learnt not to listen to reviews too much since some of my favourite games ive bought off steam had metascores in the low sixties or high fifties, so now i take a chance and go for it, its even better with mods as its free so all you really lose is a few megabytes download and 5 minutes of your time.

Seconded. Helps that he's an experienced modder himself. I trust him as far as what works, what doesn't and why.

Good point Booter. When I speak of Gamer Comments, I also take the endorsements, and downloads into account. Plus how long it's been out, and how often the Author updates it. ;)

Brodual is my favorite in opinion, as he does mainly lore friendly mods and stays away from the millions of skimpy armor mods that I dislike.

but, but, but.................. the skimpy armor!

Like others have said. Gopher for one. There's no way I could have worked out how to properly install SkyRe without his excellent video(s). And also Brodual. Short consise and to the point mod videos.

I like your style Mr. Booter.
