I’m going to start this list with a cheat. Technically, Skyrim Monster Mod was uploaded in February, but for some reason it slipped under my radar. That’s a shame, because it’s one of the most comprehensive creature overhauls, adding more than 100 new critters, including 70 types of dragons, each carefully tuned to spawn in areas that make sense, climate-wise. If Skyrim feels a little too “MMO monster-zone” to you, or you’re just tired of slaying wolves, snow trolls and ice wraiths, this is the mod to get.
