ModDB’s Mod of the Year winner announced

If I was a betting man, I’d have put money on Enderal, the vast Skyrim total conversion, winning the public vote for ModDB‘s mod of the year. That I’d have lost all that money is why I’m not a betting man. Enderal came second behind Stalker: Call of Chernobyl, a similarly vast total conversion for the enduring Stalker: Call of Pripyat.

ModDB’s Mod of the Year awards voting is open

Mods used to be my thing. I worked on mods, made mods, wrote about mods, spent all my time trawling terrible personal websites for more mods. Now my engagement with them extends no further than browsing the occasional Steam Workshop and poking around at ModDB. The latter is now running their annual Mod of the Year awards, in which you can nominate your favourite mod released this year and which will ultimately result in a Top 100 list and a set of prize winners.

As Voted For By Some Guys: Top 100 Mods Of The Year

It’s harsh but fair to say that our coverage of the mod scene is not presently at its most abundant. This is because of our recent enrolment in The International Church of Code Purity. The thought of all those innocent, virgin games being corrupted into something Other by the greasy, hungry hands of third parties makes us sick to our very souls. Down with this sort of thing.

If you remain a heathen and have not joined The International Church of Code Purity, your pagan mind might enjoy browsing ModDB’s player-voted round-up of the top 100 mods of the year. Don’t ever darken our pristine doorstep again, mind.

2009 Mod Of The Year Awards


Mod-making mothership Moddb has announced its mod of the year winners. You can see the full list of winners here, but the all important top ten – the players choice for mod of the year 2009 – is here. The prizes aren’t bad either. And yes, we’re acutely aware that we don’t do anything like enough mod coverage here on RPS, so consider this your notification to download and play all the top mods of 2009. If you don’t already own Crysis, this might be a reason to get it…

ModDB Best Of 2009 Voting Begins

What do you want, a witty caption about a logo?

As the year draws to a close humanity finds itself, swelled by the spirit if the season, at its most judgemental. It is now that we must rank everything that’s happened for the past year in order of bestness, condemning the unbestest things to the ignominy of unmentionedment. So it is with the art of modding, as modder HQ ModDB begins its voting for the 2009 awards. They’re asking you, me, anyone to vote for the best mods and indie games of the past twenty-four fortnights, in order that the universe can simply know. There’s a long time to vote – up until the 20th February. You can read all the details here.

Mod Of The Year Awards 2008


Modding mecca ModDB has announced its Mod Of The Year Awards 2008, and you lot need to get voting, especially since the awards seem to have expanded to include a gamut of beloved indie games, such as Mount & Blade. It’s all fairly easy – find the mod you want to vote for on the ModDB pages and click the rather prominent button.

Wait. What was mod of the year? If you guys have any nominations for the RPS crew to vote for then post their ModDB links in the comments below. Go!

Fallout 2.5

These’ll be of little interest to the more ardent Fallout 2 vet, who’s doubtless played all of these long ago, and is already preparing to spam-cry ‘OLD!’ below. If, however, if you’re coming to the game fairly fresh or are replaying it for the first time in ages due to excitement about Fallout 3 or because GoG.com‘s made it so cheaply available, you might find much to delight and enrapture your young mind here.

It’s Moddb’s round-up of the best Fallout 2 total conversions, from the quest-expanding Restoration project to the tri-part Wasteland Merc series. Oh, for more free time.
