Todd Howard: Mods “make your game better”, more companies should allow them

Bethesda’s Todd Howard told G4 in the latest episode of X-Play he prefers mods over DLC and doesn’t understand why so many game companies don’t provide users the tools to create their own content nor why they don’t allow modding, period.

While many companies rely instead on DLC, Howard said Bethesda benefits from releasing modding tools due to the additional attention the firm’s games receive from the community.

He also admitted the team is rather wowed by some of the mods created and because of the creativity out there, DLC isn’t half as effective or fun at creating a great gaming experience.
