Seriously.. out of the tons of mods on Nexus.. how many are actually 'needed'. The absence of pixel pr0n and one-shot weapons in vanilla aren't necessarily game breaking
Morrowind was completely unplayable without mods. I bought it when it was first released but uninstalled after little more than an hour and sold it. Bought the GotY version a few years later again, installed a bunch of 3rd party mods (among them the crucial Better Heads/Bodies/Armor mods) and had lots of fun playing it.

Being able to mod games to better suit your preferences is one of the main reasons I prefer gaming on the PC. Not only does it enhance the game experience itself, modding can be rather fun on its own. Bioware's recent trend of complete disinterest in allowing/supporting modding for their games is rather annoying; I hope Bethesda won't follow suit and will continue to release modding tools for their games.
