Thanks to our sponsors, this year we have greatly enhanced the program with video content, interactive features and top shelf prizes.
From Nov 15th to Jan 1st, industry professionals, developers, gamers and the general public cast their votes to decide which mods define the cutting edge of interactive entertainment & which mod teams attain gaming celebrity.
For those new to mods, a modification is a variation of an original game that can be freely downloaded. These variations can be minor or epic in scope. In brief:
The 2006 Mod of the Year Awards will once again recognize the finest game modifications in the world, while offering both interactive and static content to showcase the work of these dedicated and talented individuals. Your votes will decide the outcome. Click for full legal terms and conditions.
