The other factor contributing to ''Skyrim's'' long term popularity is it's ''massive'' modding community. ''Skyrim'' is a strong contender for the title of Most Modded Game ever, and it's community is still in full swing half a decade after release. At the [[http://www.nexusmods.com Mod Nexus]], ''Skyrim'' holds the crown for most mods produced, with a total of nearly 54 ''thousand'' mods. For comparison, ''Oblivion'' clocks in second place at just above half of that. There are whole [=YouTube=] channels that have been extremely successful that are solely devoted to showcasing ''Skyrim'' mods. The release of the Special Edition, particularly with it being in a far more stable 64 bit[[note]]The original PC release used 32 bit architecture, which limited the game to using only 4 gigabytes of RAM. This meant that a heavily modded game would eventually become unstable to an almost game breaking degree.[[/note]] gave the modding community a definite shot in the arm, allowing mods to become even more ambitious. A list of troper-recommended mods has been added [[JustForFun/SkyrimRecommendedMods here]].

Somewhat uniquely for a modern game, ''Skyrim'' has enjoyed a remarkable longevity for a strictly single player title, long after many of it's contemporaries have either been forgotten or set aside for sequels. This is due to two factors: The first, and more recent, is a string of re-releases. The first was an UpdatedRerelease using the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' engine, ''Skyrim: Special Edition'', which was was released for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4, UsefulNotes/XboxOne, and PC on October 28, 2016. The console versions add support for PC mods, a la ''Fallout 4'', and {{UsefulNotes/Steam}} owners of ''Skyrim'' and all its [=DLCs=] [[note]]through the ''[[GameOfTheYearEdition Legendary Edition]]'' or otherwise[[/note]] received a copy of ''Special Edition'' for free.
