Mods can extend the lifespan of a game by weeks if not months. In some cases, they're more impressive than the games that they were built on top of.
However, a few mods are too creepy to play for extended period of time. We admire the amount of time that modders put into their creations but these ten were just too disturbing or scary to recommend.
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask: Nicolas Cage Mod
Giving every character in a game the same face is creepy enough. Giving every character in a game the face of Nicolas Cage is just too much to bear. Two modders spent months slapping his mug onto everyone in Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. They stretched and shaped the picture of Cage's face as needed to fit each character models. The end result feels like a rejected episode of the Twilight Zone. I admire the modders' dedication but I want no part of this mod. The world needs only one Nicolas Cage.
Skyrim: Stranger Danger Mod
There are a lot of reasons you could be disappointed in Skyrim, such as the atrocious interface or the repetitive combat. However, one player found a different problem with the game: it doesn't let you kill children. So, he created a mod that lets you do it.
"I'm not even interested in killing the kids, I just don't like the idea that they are invulnerable," the modder said. "I want immersion and I don't think a subject being taboo is a good enough reason to have invincible npc's running all over town."
I didn't realize there were people who couldn't get immersed in a game world inhabited by children they couldn't murder. I'm happy they've got a solution to this very unusual hang-up but you'll have to forgive me for being a bit creeped out by all the children killing spree videos it has spawned.
Half-Life 2: Silent Hill Mod
Unlike many of the other mods on this list, Silent Hill: Alchemilla is creepy on purpose. This Half-Life 2 mod tells a brand-new story inspired by the early Silent Hill games. While the lack of monsters is disappointing, the mod still manages to be unnerving through great sound designs and visuals. The developers nailed the creepy atmosphere at the heart of the best Silent Hill games. Due to Silent Hills' cancellation, it could be awhile before we get another good Silent Hill game. This mod, though, is a welcome glance back at the series' glory days.
The Sims 4: Ugly Sliders
The Sims 4 gives players a lot of options for customizing their characters. However, the game doesn't let you make horribly deformed Sims. The Ugly Sliders mod seeks to correct that "problem." This particular mod expands the limits on the sliders that determine Sims' physical attributes. This means you can give your Sim lips that are wider than their head, a football-shaped cranium and more. Thankfully, other Sims don't react poorly to these creations' unusual features so they can live out normal lives in spite of their severe handicaps.
Grand Theft Auto IV: Carmageddon Mod
The Carmageddon mod for GTA IV actually has nothing to do with the vehicle combat series of the same name. Instead, it causes all cars in the world to flip out of control.
"This mod gives all cars, except a selected few mentioned in the readme file, negative base friction on their wheels, making them accelerate, rather than decelerate, at all times when the wheels are in contact with a surface, whether it be the ground, a wall or the ceiling," the mod's creator explained.
Carmageddon is supposed to be funny - and it is, if you try to drive with its wacky physics. However, if you're on foot, it's kind of terrifying. It's almost as if the cars are trying to hunt down the player and kill them.
Skyrim: Badass Psychopathic Rapist Walrus Mod
Seriously, this is one of the most creepy, terrible, ridiculous Skyrim mods I've ever seen. A psychotic, rapist, badass walrus. As noted in the YouTube description video “this mod turns the walrus into a badass rapist”. You can imagine how the comment section looks. There are a lot of people who aren't terribly thrilled with this mod and I can definitely see why. It's like something out of a really bad, exploitation B-movie from the early 1980s. In addition to being creepy the mod has an extra layer of distaste tossed in with the vile and vulgar language that the walrus spouts out from time to time. Yes, this is a cringe-inducing mod on so many different levels that it's best to just look away and try to unsee this deplorable walrus.
Goat Simulator: Baby Mod
Goat Simulator from Coffee Stain Studios is already a creepy game. It's creepy in a fun way, though. But what makes it even more creepy and disturbing is when certain mods ramp up the creep factor by several fold and that's exactly what happened with the BabyGoat mod from Steam user Dafini. Not only is the mod creepy in the sense that the baby still has a goat's voice, but it's one of the most ugly looking babies that could have been picked to replace the goat. Toss in the fact that its head twists in completely unnatural ways and it looks like something out of a 1980s horror movie and you have a perfectly disturbing mod that would make just about any normal person uncomfortable.
Mortal Kombat 9: Skinless Mod
The Fatalities in Mortal Kombat are already some terrifying things to behold, but what would make them even more frightening? If they were performed by skinless kombatants. If that sounds kind of goofy, just check out the compilation video showing how some of the finishers look when the person performing them isn't wearing any skin. It's referred to as a “Meat” mod, because in some of the earlier Mortal Kombat titles there was a bloody, skinless fighter on the roster named Meat. It's a bit of an homage to the gory pugilist. Some of the comments on the YouTube page sum up this disturbing bit of kung-fu carnage, with a few people saying that they'll be having nightmares for years after witnessing a few of those skinless Fatalities.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Stupidity Mod
This is one of the creepiest, strangest, most disturbing mods I've ever seen... ever. It's a mod for Return to Castle Wolfenstein called the “Stupidity Mod”. It's an incomprehensible mix of color vomit and the mishmashed results of iconography and pop culture giving birth during a sexual seizure. If that sounds like something plucked from a tree of crazy, well you're just starting to brush the tip of the iceberg with this mod. It's available over on Moddb from the cleverly named Upisoft Entertainment. There are very few mods that really push boundaries like this one and if you know what's good for you... steer clear.
Garry's Mod: SCP-096 Mod
So imagine a mod that looks like it doesn't work, but actually it does. That's kind of the gist of this SCP-096 mod, which is a variation on the widely popular SCP-173 mod. So what is it? Well, it's literally a creepy looking monster that cries and screams and then goes on a rampage to hunt down any and everyone in the stage until they're dead... even NPCs. It's creepy on a whole other level because of the random nature of the mod. It's like playing a horror movie that's come to life. It adds a whole new level of fright to your Garry's Mod adventures that's for sure. One of the few posts on the Workshop page's forum asks “Can I kill him?” You can try, kid... you can try.
