Whats up with negative reviews for Skyrim?
Every single bad review for Skyrim is about paid mods and none about the quality of the game graphics, gameplay, design, etc. Wtf? Paid mods were removed a LONG time ago and it was only for a short time, why should all the reviews be like these? Note these are not made up I copyied and pasted the top 6 negative reviews here.

"Epic game but a shameless try to make a cash grab on mods .Keeping the review as negative for this very reason . They failed only because people stood up to them other wise we be paying for mods."

"So Valve and Bethesda have taken away paid mods. Cool and all the power to them but I belive Valve should still make it easier to donate to mod creators, especially on a game that's so heavily dependant on mods from the community. The base game is so open and full of promise, but it's also empty and borning. It's as if they made the game expecting mods to make it better."

"Khajiit has mods, if you have coin."

"Steam is capitalizing on its effective monopoly to monetize artistic creativity of the modding community by incentivizing paid mods.
Truly a sad day for PC gaming..."

"I used to be a modder like you. Then I took a buyout in the knee"

"Due to Valve's decision to allow paying for mods, I will never buy another game on your service again until the policy is rescinded. I have hundreds of games and thousands of hours logged.This situation is unacceptable and I cannot even begin to express my disappointment in your company."

Seriously wtf?

People get butthurt over a single thing and take thier anger out on the review section. The paid mods were removed but the reviews remains. I don't think the Skyrim rating will ever recover to back where it was before the paid mod fiasco.

Most people can read the reviews and see and the negatives are not about the actual game and disregard them.

Most people only read far enough into a bad review to get the gist of it, paid mods, paid mods, paid mods...ignore. And anyway, there are two truths about opinions; they are like a^^holes, everyones got one. And, the only opinion that matters is your own.

Just questioning. More of a Morrowind fan but I was a pretty invested Skyrim modder at a time as you can see in the description.
It is a reminder of what happened in the past.

I agree the paid mods was a disaster but with the modders getting such a low percentage it was a money grab by Steam and Bethesda that backfired in their face. And a great game like Skyrim is paying for their greed.

Yup.
If modders got at least 1/2, then the only ppl complaining would be the poor lil kiddies :(

Bethesda has become a greedy POS but Skyrim is an awesome game and the size and dedication of the community demonstrates that. Enjoy it because it is the best we will see from Bethesda.

I like all the games in the series but Skyrim is more refined or updated. I wish we could get an updated version of the others.

What I don't understand is that these people are complaining about it even though it doesn't mean that mods aren't still available to literally everyone. Nexus' modding community is still out there and doing very well for itself. Just because paid mods were removed doesn't mean that mods are no longer available. If you still can't find mods for Skyrim, you probably don't deserve to play the game. Also, I REALLY hope that for these people's sake that they don't actually believe Steam is taking advantage of it's "monopoly" on PC games. If they're taking advantage of it, Summer Sales and literally every other ♥♥♥♥ing sale that happens over the year wouldn't happen. Taking advantage of a monopoly involves charging more for a product that you know no one else can provide. Steam has this monopoly because they charge far less for a product that quite a few people can actually provide.

I feel that Nexus would go "Paid Mods" in a minute if they could
They needs the money

Nexus gets paid through advertisements. Their site is riddled with them.

I don't think after this game Bethesda will make ES6 so well. There will probably be a paid mod system in place when the game launches. And that will make them have less orginal flavor to the game.

Taco Bell if you go premimun through Nexus there are no ads. It is well worth the investment dropping the modders a little for a great mod if they want a donation is a good idea also.

The reason that Skyrim is so good to play is because of the Nexus Mods.
