Last night, Valve caused a storm of internet debate as the company announced its plans to allow for the sale of user-made mods on Steam Workshop. In an ironic move that serves a sharp reminder of the failure of Oblivion’s Horse Armor DLC, Bethesda leaped into this uncharted territory, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim becoming the first testing ground for paid mods, with eighteen mods currently available for purchase. The consumer reaction was as swift as it was damning. Forums, subreddits, and whatever is ‘the thing’ these days were littered with posts decrying Valve’s audacious decision. By the time I went to bed, for once, there seemed to be one thing everyone on the internet was willing to agree to: PC gaming as we know it is dead.
