The 17th Annual Mod of the Year Awards have officially kicked off. A voting booth has been added to all mod profiles on ModDB, and for the next four weeks player votes will determine the top 100(announced December 11) and the overall winner announced shortly after Christmas.
Last year the community voted 104,184 times, with Brutal Doom - a massive crowd favorite the eventual winner, which was closely followed by the epic Star Wars: Thrawn's Revenge II: Ascendancy mod with the C&C-based Twisted Insurrection coming in 3rd. Previous winners include DayZ, Garry’s Mod, Counter-Strike and other mods which have gone on to become household names.
For many years mods have played a huge part in the gaming community, offering a huge pipeline of free content to the gamers made possible by the many humble developers that create these experiences. As we close up 2018, we invite you to celebrate (and hopefully cover) the remarkable effort the modding community puts into their creations. There have been some huge releases this year, make your vote count and we look forward to seeing who will be crowned the 2018 Mod of the Year. For more information on the event including a live scoreboard and how to vote head over to the official awards page.
