then don't install hunger mods
immersion isn't just about having a lot of stuff to do, it's about feeling like you're in the game world by making things seem more realistic
the reason why skyrim has so many immersion mods is because there are a lot of immersion-breaking things (glitches/bugs, goofy npc/enemy mechanics, and things that just don't make sense in-universe or out). some people want the game to be as realistic as possible, so they install a lot of those mods. some people like it to actually feel more like a game, so they either don't install the immersion mods or they even install the goofy shit like a master chief follower and thomas the tank engine dragons
but yes, the fact that skyrim is pretty meh without mods does say something about the base game. I've had people in the past think I'm trying to defend skyrim by saying "but it's good with mods" but that just isn't the case, I know it's kinda bad but that doesn't prevent me from wanting to play it especially since all of these fixes and improvements are available
was that even still around in august 2012 (when your profile says you joined)?
it feels like that was at least 10 years ago
