With the impending release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim — Legendary Edition, which bundles all three downloadable content packs along with the original core game, GamesBeat thought this might be a good time to highlight some of our favorite PC mods.

Fans of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will admire this cheeky nod to one of the first (and worst) pieces of downloadable content for a console game. Dartani’s Horse Armor mod replaces each major city’s buyable player horse with a unique armored option. Frost and Shadowmere also get custom armor (for those who have found them).
