From Skyrim and Fallout to Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3, as well as games like Elden Ring, we here at Gfinity cover an awful lot of mods, with all of them hopefully offering something that’ll make your latest playthrough of any of those games a bit more interesting.

This month has certainly delivered a strong selection, with everything from lore-friendly lightsabers, working post-apocalyptic racetracks and massive architecture overhauls to giants that look like Mr T and some sexy beards having possibly arrived in your load order.

With this in mind, we thought it might be cool to highlight five of the best mods that we’ve featured over the course of this month. So, here we go…

5. Banksy graffiti in Cyberpunk 2077

Kicking things off is Neurolepticer’s ‘Banksy’, which brings a number of famous works by the anonymous artist to Night City, for you to locate as you prowl the urban jungle in search of gigs.

While a tad simplistic, this mod gets the nod because the artwork fits so well into the dystopian world of Cyberpunk and is delivered in a way that isn’t too in-your-face, providing some cool details that are easily missed, but can add to your ability to get immersed in a terrifying world.

4. Skyrim’s Dragonborn is gifted a sword for their 11th anniversary

Next up is Nexussfire’s 'The Dragon Blade (Skyrim 11th Anniversary Special Edition)’, which helped to commemorate Skyrim celebrating its birthday this month by finally giving the game's hero their own unique sword.

The blade in question looks very snazzy, comes in both one-handed and two-handed variants and has even gained a special scabbard in the time since we featured it, making it a great grab for any fresh warrior playthrough.

3. Fallout 4’s Sole Survivor becomes the ultimate NFL quarterback

JustReddz’ ‘Nuclear Football’ is one of those mods that you’re going to be seeing in wacky Fallout 4 YouTube videos from now until the end of time, given that it allows the game’s protagonist to throw mini-nukes like an American football player.

Taking to the gridiron and lobbing explosive passes deep towards some super mutant wide receivers isn’t how you might be used to fighting your way through The Commonwealth, but you should definitely try it.

2. Aliens invade Fallout New Vegas

Yup, you read that right. With Ashens2014’s ‘Wild Wasteland UFOs’ installed, you’ll be having close encounters throughout the Mojave as you try to decide the future of New Vegas.

It’s up to you whether you want to be a friend or a foe to these extraterrestrial visitors, though you should bear in mind that there are some pretty cool perks and gear on offer if you do have the guts to take on the randomly dropped Zetan death squads!

With that, we’re down to just one victor. So, without further ado, here’s November’s mod of the month:

1. Skyrim gains a bunch of realistically chatty taxi drivers

How do you outdo aliens? Well, I’ll tell you. Once, I met this bloke in a tavern and I can’t remember his name, but he said to me, you know this Skyrim civil war lark? He said it’s a bit stupid, you see, because what we true Nords need isn’t to be fighting these Imperials, it’s to take the fight to those bloody Thalmor elves! Hang on a minute, why are you getting out of the carriage? We’re nowhere near Riften yet!

In all seriousness, sometimes the best mods are ones that make you look forward to using an aspect of a game you’ve completely forgotten about for the first time in a while. JaySerpa’s ‘Carriages and Stables Dialogue Bundle’ does just that.

Regardless of whether you agree with these selections, make sure to follow us for in-depth coverage of loads more great mods over the course of December.
