  1. u are forgetting about 1 game, wich may yust land on ur top 5, namely star trek bridge commander, it has tons of mods, ranging from smal single ship addons, to complete new story line, and very advanced options, including a vibrant galaxy, wich is a totaly new system compared to the original(wich was kind of noticbly scripted)


  2. Fallout 3 has a HELL of a lot more than 54 mods, I mean thousands more! ModDB isn’t great for the games which have a specific modding community though. The Nexus sites are good for mods for a variety of games and one of the main sources for Fallout 3, New Vegas, Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim etc. Just pointing that out 😀

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
