In all likelihood, if you go down the path of modding Skyrim, you won't stop at just one update. Sure, you'll use some bug fixes and graphics improvements to make the experience more in line with something on a recent console. But you've never really played with mods until you break the world in half.

But come nightfall, you might want to think about busting out your lightsaber to fend off the Macho Dragons before the Majora's Mask moon hits the earth.
Who needs new consoles? Or new games? Or anything else in their lives but this?
