1. What is a video game mod?

Modification

In gaming, a mod is a player-created game component used to alter a game. Players typically download mods from the Internet and install them in the related game, to enhance the game's UI, make the game look better, and/or add content (such as additional characters, sounds, quests, and weapons).

For example, Skyrim players have created a veritable treasure trove of mods for that game, used to do everything from prettying up the game's menus to upending its physics. Other popular games that players frequently mod include Minecraft (MC), Half-Life (HL), Grand Theft Auto (GTA), Civilization, and Friday Night Funkin' (FNF).
