Hi everyone,

I will play Skyrim some more because I want to pretend it is game of thrones.  What are some good graphical/gameplay mods that you have used to enhance your experience?

Thanks,

What kind of game do you want?  There are so many mods depending on how you want to play.

I am assuming you have all DLC.  Here are the utilities you should use to ensure mod compatibility:

Nexus Mod Manager: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/modmanager/?
SKSE: http://skse.silverlock.org/
LOOT: https://loot.github.io/

With that out of the way, I'll post what I think is absolutely essential and would recommend for anyone on a first playthrough.

SkyUI: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3863/?
Warburgs 3D Paper World Map: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/25501/?
Immersive HUD: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3222/?
Less Intrusive HUD: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/35154/?
Better Dialogue Controls: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/27371/?
Better MessageBox Controls: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/28170/?#
Unofficial Skyrim Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/19/?
Unofficial Dawnguard Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/23491/?
Unofficial Hearthfire Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/25127/?
Unofficial Dragonborn Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/31083/?

What I recommend for graphics:

Skyrim HD: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/607/?
Bellyaches HD Dragon Replacer Pack: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/29631/?
Book Covers Skyrim: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/35399/?
Skyrim Flora Overhaul: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/141/?
Xenius Character Enhancement: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/2356/?
Enhanced Lights and FX: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/27043/?
Pure Weather: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/52423/?
Pure Waters: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/1111/?
Enhanced Blood Textures: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/60/?
Static Mesh Improvement Mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/8655/?
Footprints: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/22745/?
Quality Snow HD 4K: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/49011/?
Better Dynamic Snow: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=13611&searchtext=

I don't recommend any major gameplay changes if this is your first time.  You can also find a lot more quality mods at Skyrim GEMS.

After installing whichever you want, run LOOT and it will organize the load order to avoid any conflicts.  There are probably some mods I have personally used that I am forgetting.  You can ask me for my thoughts on certain mods because I have used a ton.  Good luck!

If we were on reddit, I would give you gold.  Sir, you deserve all the upvotes.  *Tips Helmet*
