The Fat Controller knows all about those bizarre Thomas the Tank Engine mods that have come out over the past several years. At least, he does now, after I showed a bunch to him.

Modders have been splicing Thomas into video games for the best part of a decade. What started as a joke Skyrim mod that replaced the RPG’s dragons with giant models of Thomas the Tank Engine has since spiraled into a staple format of the modding community. The children’s locomotive is now the regular, if unofficial face of the biggest triple-A games – his bright blue chassis inserted into their fictional worlds with all the subtlety that a hulking steam engine deserves.
