Each year we see a flurry of 'Game of the Year' awards features. We have even seen some 'Mod of the Year' awards, however, they have often been small uneventful features, judged by a few biased reporters and limited to one game. Not anymore; 2004 marks the first year when the public who make and play the mods out there get to decide which are the best going round.
The outcome will be interesting; will the next-generation mods on the next-generation engines prevail or will the old classics come through with the goods? Will the popular games with tons of mods win by masses of numbers, or will the games with a few mods fuelled by cult followings prove a force to be reckoned with? Well January 2005 has come and gone so the results are in!
The 2007 Mod of the Year event is about to kick-off, but before we look at the year that was we decided to take a stroll down memory lane and look back at the past 5 Mod of the Year awards.

The Mod DB team has been working around the clock to get the 2007 Mod of the Year Awards running and finally they are just around the corner! In a few days at the end of December they shall kick off and players choice voting shall begin.
But before we fight over the best mods of 2007 and debate endlessly if it was a good year of modding, its time to take a look back at the past 5 years of MOTY, an event which began as a humble forum thread and has now grown into a closely fought and coveted event.
