10 Best Game Mods Of 2019 To Tweak Your Favorite Games In Weird Ways

Easy Difficulty, Boss Rush & Thomas’s Revenge (Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice)

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an intense game. You need perfect reflexes and lots of patience to overcome its many, many obstacles — and savvy modders recognized the challenge pretty darn quickly. One of the first mods available, before mods were even really a thing for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, makes the game easier.

How? By slowing things down. One of the most common ‘easy difficulty’ mods lets you cut the speed of any encounter. You can make enemies (and yourself) move a lot slower, giving you more time to react. By dropping the speed down to 50%, it’s still fast — you’ll just have way more time to figure out your parry.

It’s one of the most talked-about mods of the year thanks to a Twitter meme. And while we’re talking about memes, Thomas The Tank Engine appears in Sekiro too — this time, the not-so-friendly face replaces the menacing Great Serpent.

Finally, you can give yourself a real challenge with a Boss Rush mod. Cut out all the exploration, and jump straight into the challenging fights. If you want to practice your skills against each boss fight, this is the perfect way to do it.


Animal Crossing Goes To Hell (DOOM)

Must we kill everything we see? Maybe demons are actually pretty cool, if we stopped to talk to them. That’s the question this ridiculous mod poses, crossing Animal Crossing with the original DOOM — which still has an incredible, thriving mod community in 2019. The mod, called Mr. Friendly, sends you into a true DOOM map, but without any of the weapons. Instead, you talk to demons, complete quests, and explore.
